Bad Albert's--RIP and Post-Mortem

  • 4
  • Share

I noticed yesterday that this venerable (18 years) place is closed and for sale. There is an explanatory note on the door, noting the owner's health problems as a contributing cause.

I really enjoyed Bad Albert's. Their Friday night prime rib dinners were always great, and their pubfood menu was consistently good. I probably had everything on the menu, and they didn't fumble anything, ever. The servers were well-trained and friendly. The only complaint I ever had about the place was the uncomfortable high stools at the tall tables. This was the way, IMO, that neighborhood places ought to be, food-, drink-, and atmo-wise.

The owner once shared with me his recipe for Biscuits & Crab Gravy, a delightful preparation, that I regularly make for brunches and out-of-towners. I'll always remember the owner's generosity in this regard, as well as many, many fine meals at Bad Albert's.

Get Well Soon, RIP Bad Albert's, and Thanks!

Aloha,
Kaleo

  1. They closed about a month ago. It was one hell of a send-off party. I'll miss it too.

      1. i'll miss Bad Albert's too. The servers were always wonderful, and I always enjoyed the food. I was impressed that they had such tasty vegetarian options. Their Hippie Burger was an awesome, comfort-foody treat. I heard about the owner's health troubles and hope he is doing well.
