We've been celebrating our anniversary here for several years now. We have never had a bad meal, if fact, it has always been excellent. It is always a special night out and topped off with the Creme Brulee and their delicious coffee. This year's New Years Eve was no exception. The turf and surf were great as was the service... More

My fiancé and I recently spent the evening celebrating with my parents our recent engagement. We couldn't have picked a better place to enjoy a delicious meal together. The place was not loud and although there were two tables nearby, I didn't hear one word of their conversation. Our waitress was so pleasant and handled all the questions we had... More

We visited the Austin Land and cattle restaurant for a graduation dinner. The reservation through opentable was smooth. We had to change it a day before the dinner to add people and the manager was very accommodating. The table was in the middle of the restaurant by the Christmas tree and this made fro a festive mood. We tried stuffed... More

We entered thru the bar. There was a lively energetic feel. We were seated in a room in the back that was semi isolated. We didn't care, but definitely not the same vibe the bar had. The waiter was efficient, knowledgeable and professional. My cocktail was good, not great. I ordered ribeye with asparagus w chimichurri and a baked potato.... More

Josh, we're sorry you to hear you were disappointed with our place recently. However, I can assure you that we did not close before our hours said so -- that wouldn't be cool. I hope you have enjoyed the food, and I hope you will give us a second chance. Best, Jordan, Manager More

Told the waiter it was one of my favorite meals of all time! Had Creole chicken with garlic mashers. Sounds like an everyday order but it far surpassed an everyday meal!

I remember when this restaurant was an enjoyable, welcoming place, with friendly customer service. Sadly, it's changed. I didn't have a $300 dinner tab, I guess.

Susan, thanks for coming in with us, however, I'm sorry you weren't too pleased with the service this time around. It sounds like you know us, and have had many past meals with us. It also sounds like this was an off-night. I hope you will consider that, and come back again another time. Best, Jordan, Manager More

This is a mixed review. My wife and I ate at ALC last night. The service was exemplary. My steak, a 14oz ribeye, was great! It was cooked just the way I ordered it. It was thick, juicy, with just the right amount of marbling. I also had a delicious tonato and red onion salad. On the other hand, my... More

Description
Enjoy a delicious steak and a taste of Austin. You haven’t experienced the best of Austin until you've been to ALC Steaks. The capitol city's only independent, family-owned steakhouse serves sizzling, hand-cut, aged beef the way Austinites have loved it for over 19 years. From our rich, antique wooden bar to our relaxing, unpretentious dining room, everything about us says, "welcome." Our exceptional service and genuine hospitality are as inviting as the many signature items on our menu. Tonight's the perfect evening to discover something else great about Austin.
