THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Albie's Beef Inn Restaurant Review

: Okay, so it's part of a Travelodge, but Albie's has a steady following who like this old-school spot, which is located in the same space as Adam’s Steak & Eggs (the names change according to the hour). In business since 1962, Albie’s was retro before the term existed. Dark booths with diamond tufting, wood paneling circa 1960, and Sinatra on the soundtrack strike a chord. Guests enjoy filets wrapped in bacon with all the fixings, like a single sugar-sweet carrot and twice-stuffed baked potato. Rack of pork calls for a double-thick cut, marinated Greek-style, while halibut is fresh, lightly breaded and cooked in garlic butter. Boneless, non-traditional chicken Parmesan skips the marinara, instead padding the poultry in breadcrumbs and cheese. Raspberry cheesecake brûlée or homemade bread pudding champion the dessert menu. Albie's is packed on Fridays with an energetic bar crowd. Musicians often drop in sporting saxophones and trombones to jam with the in-house piano man. The weekday happy hour means double well drinks and free appetizers.
