Not impressed at all, and find it hard to believe this place is as high as it is. The operation was a mess on Friday night -- numerous tables were dirty and they appeared to not have the appropriate staff on to bus tables when they opened. Service was very slow. I mean very slow. The menu is very difficult... More

Found this gem on Trip Advisor. PHENOMINAL! Fabulous family owned, cozy restaurant. Exceptional service from everyone. We got one of the take 5 specials of ribs and scallops. The rib meat literally fell off the bone and melted in your mouth. The scallops were cooked to perfection. Homemade bread and corn bread with a delicious ceasar salad. The sweet fries... More

Been meaning to stop in because of the great reviews and recommendations by friends. My husband and I were greeted and seated immediately (we did not have a reservation). All the waitresses appeared harried, the restaurant wasn't full while we were there, approximately 6-7pm. Served warm whole wheat bread and cornbread to start, good. Husband ordered one of their "Ceasar... More

This was quite possibly the best BBQ I've ever had. The meat melted off the bones, the sauce was perfect, spicy but not "scalding". The scallops were large, tender and gently seasoned. Even the Caesar salad was yummy. I wish I lived near here to be able to return. I will certainly tell any friends headed this way not to... More

We've driven by this place 500 times, but never stopped to eat. Finally one day we didn't know where to eat, but didn't want to drive too far. Now it is one of our favorite places to eat! GREAT FOOD, and friendly staff. I recommend the sampler. The RIBS were amazing! Meat fell off the bone.

My family and I searched for a new place to try some ribs for my dad's birthday and someone recommended Al-e-oops. We were there around 4 on a Saturday to beat any dinner rush and were seated pretty promptly. The menu is extensive with a ton of different options, but we ordered the turkey platter, filet platter, and ribs with... More

Al-E-Oops is a family owned sit down restaurant. I have been there 2 times. I ordered a combination meal that had ribs and scallops. The scallops were lightly browned top and bottom and very soft. They were not chewy as some seafood gets when it is overdone. The ribs were awesome. They were well seasoned, very tasty, and almost fell... More

Service was very slow and the waitress did not listen to us. We ordered water with our cocktails and it never came. Bread was brought to the table by someone other than our waitress but he did not bring butter. We had to ask for the butter, again another wait. We had fish and crab cakes. They were both ok...
