As usual for us we decided to go out to eat on a whim. It was not crowded when we arrived so we were able to put in our order at the counter window immediately. It was brought out by the same friendly woman who took our order, hot from the kitchen. My wife had the haddock sandwich and a... More

Fresh delicious clams and scallops for our lunch. Lots of choices. Basket portions more than enough. Takeout or eat in the attached restaurant.

We drove from Manchester to eat here! We wanted a local place that had great seafood and wasn't super expensive. This was it! There is a small store/market where you can purchase fresh seafood to take home. You order at a window and then go and sit down. They bring you your food when it is ready. Yummy whole lobster...

Perhaps the best seafood I had while in New England. The restaurant is very simply decorated, order at the counter and the server brings your order. The seafood is fresh, the restaurant is clean and the food is GOOD!

We have had lobster rolls, fried Haddock and Clam rolls at Al's. Smaller homey restaurant. It is very busy during tourist season but less wait time in later Fall. You place order at inside walk up window and sit in dining area where the meal is brought to your table. There is also a fish counter inside the restaurant.

My wife grew up just around the corner. Whenever we are visiting friends or family in the area we make it a point to stop in; been doing so for 30 years. Never had a bad meal!

We were vacationing in Hampton, and spotted Al`s Seafood on Lafayette Road. There was a nice large parking lot. I found the ordering OK, but the dining room signage was confusing. So we both had the baked seafood special. The seafood was nice, but the cracker topping was uninspired and not tasty. The twice baked potato tasted like it was... More

A nice, unassuming place to have a seafood lunch. Lobster rolls were fresh, tasty and reasonably priced, and fries good, too. You order the food at a counter from a huge list, and it is brought to you to a comfortable dining room.
