Al Biernat is the czar of the front door, the dining room sheik, and that's all you need to know. Bred at The Palm where he held court as frontman for some 22 years, Al Biernat knows that great steaks and fine seafood vibrate beyond their requisite flavor profiles when jolted with charm. Al Biernat's is riddled with all of the staples: the jumbo shrimp cocktails and the jumbo lump crab cakes; the fried calamari crusted in potato; the iceberg wedge with the blue cheese gravel, the creamed spinach and creamed corn, and potatoes in six guises. But surprises bud from the uniformity. Al features elegant caviar service, blackened sea scallops with Polynesian rice, and Colorado elk to pair with his thick roster of prime Allen Brothers steaks (one of them, a Kobe-Black Angus hybrid filet). Plus Biernat's diverse but tightly constructed wine list means that every bite will finish in vinted savor. It's the epitome of meats and greets.
Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip... That all went down at Al Biernat's with a lot of big, fake tits. Ah, KRLD Restaurant Week, a time when those of us who only thi... More »
It's surprising at first. Bartenders insist that knowledge of particular drinks is of minor significance compared with traits such as personality and consistency when measuring success at their craft. It's akin to universities hiring faculty... More »
For us the year 2004 began in a drunken stupor, surrounded by the equally drunken and stupefied masses gathered at Sense. It ended in much the same way. This week's Burning Question, however, concerns the in-betweens, the dismal months of 2004.... More »
Great place for a nice lunch business meeting. Also very good for a nice dinner. The prime rib is amazing but also giant. The steak is good. People rave about their seafood but I always get their red meat so I haven't tried the seafood.
The real test of a restaurant's wait staff isn't how it handles a noisy group of birthday partiers or a pompous wine connoisseur: It's Restaurant Week. Discount-driven diners and massive guest counts make Restaurant Week a nightmare for even the most disciplined restaurants, and wait staffs usually make sure customers know it. Not so at the always-elegant Al Biernat's, the storied steakhouse where servers this year performed with professionalism most eateries can't match on an average night.... More »
We don't frequent Al Biernat's often, but it has nothing to do with the quality of the food and everything to do with sucking sound we hear from our bank account after paying the bill. With lunch entrees running up to $25 and salads topping out at $23, we only tend to stop by on special occasions. But after trying their grilled chicken sandwich at lunch recently, we're thinking about increasing our visits, even if it means cutting back on expenses like, um, electricity. Yup, it's that good....

Go ahead, ask him anything. Is it acceptable to drop a few ice cubes into wine--even red? What's the best thing for less than $30 that pairs well with steak, fish and salad? Is there really a difference between Australian and New Zealand wines? He answers all questions with an unflappable grace and a frightening level of knowledge. Yep, frightening. He can pair wine within any price range and with any dish on the menu. Even when patrons argue over red or white, he manages to find a... More »
