    This is my favorite local spot. So much better than the chain places. Food is great, even down to the homemade churn butter. Great value.

    This is a fantastic place to eat! Some of the best scratch recipes I have tasted and biscuits are to die for. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner all of the food can't be beat.

    Great service. The staff is so friendly. Yummy comfort food. The turkey dinner was amazing. I was too full for desert, but when they brought it out I couldn't help myself. So tasty!

About Us

We’ve owned Al Smith’s Place since 2004. Prior to Al Smith’s Place, we as a core have worked in corporate for 10 years, owned a small carryout for three years in Perrysburg and a local restaurant in Toledo for another four years. The two ventures were sold and it was a stepping stone allowing us to acquire Al Smith’s Place.

We are a scratch-made, “old school” comfort food diner ranging from bold chili mac, hand pattied burgers, made-to-order chicken chunks, fresh meatloaf, scratch-made sausage gravy and hand-cut home fries.

This list is only scratching the surface of our diverse menu. “Fresh homestyle cooking without the frills” is our motto. Our pie case is in the middle of the dining room ranges from fruit pies, cream pies and smooth, creamy cheesecake. We serve breakfast all day and are opened for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We serve an array of sandwiches and salads. We even make a variety of sauces and dressings in house. We periodically create new specials to cater all groups and ages and even “out of the box” test kitchen creations.

We understand the challenges and the sophisticated expectations from our customers so we try our best to accommodate and adjust to such needs. We have a core group of individuals running the front and back of the house and they have been with us for just as long as we’ve owned Al Smith’s Place. They even stuck around and waited for us when we were down for almost a year from a fire years ago. That speaks volume of their dedication and loyalty. We are very fortunate to have such individuals as part of this family.

Our philosophy is never be content, always be open-minded and never stop learning. We are constantly learning something new in this trait and continuously work on improving ourselves whether it be fine-tuning a recipe, creating new items, staying up-to-date with social media, or even learning to be a better person.

Our greatest benchmark gauge is looking at the plates leaving our customer’s tables. If it’s an empty plate, we’ve done our job. “Hot food from our kitchen and warm smiles from our servers.”
