Wine selection has some great values and something for everyone to enjoy. Our server really made us feel special on our night out. Afterwords a nightcap on the huge patio with live music!"

  • "The food was the best we have ever had a Steiner Ranch. We have had dinner many times and Aug. 25th was the best. We would also like to call your attention to the tortilla soup. We have never had this soup this delicious at any restaurant in any city. The steaks were great but we still have a problem getting a HOT baked potato. Each time I have ordered one, it always comes to the table COLD. Please address this situation. Thank you for having a great place to invite our friends to join us."

  • "Missed being able to order from the brunch menu. I was looking forward to the stuffed French toast. Breakfast buffet was not very special and some items were not hot."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "a little slow starting off, had reservations for 6:30, finally was seated after about a 15 minute wait. Then we followed the server around until a suitable table was found, a little disorganized. However, once we were seated, the server did a very nice job of tending to our needs for drinks appetizers and the meal. Overall, it was very nice."

  • "Great Steak! I had the Ribeye. Service was perfect!"
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "We showed up 7 min after our scheduled reservation and had to wait 30 min to be seated. Then we had to listen to the waitress give us a 5 minute spill. After she was done trying to sale us the daily special, a $130 meal for 2 (which we bought & were highly disappointed with). We didn't see her again until she brought us our food. We were excited and anxious to get the bread while we waited for our meal, but it never came. We actually ended up getting our full meal before the waitress brought us the bread :( $190 bucks later and disappointed in my choice of restaurants for my gfs bday, I couldn't get over the fact that I just dropped almost $200 dollars and had a bad experience :'( not at all what I was hoping for."

  • "didn't like the tables being so close together, my table and chair kept getting bumped in to from the loud table behind me. and the flashing of camera flash made the night very bad and I couldn't wait to get my bill and go, which my waiter was very nice about and brought it to the bar on the main floor. will never be back or recommend your place to anyone."

  • "Our recent dining experience was a disaster. This was a birthday dinner for my wife. Four of us were taken up to a table on the second floor set for two. We were then taken back down to the first floor to a table appropriately set for four. The food was terrible. Two of us ordered steaks. They were not cooked as odered and had to be sent back. So, two of us were eating while the others waited for their steaks be be re-cooked. My fish "special" was almost unedible. It was over cooked and the crab on top was undetectable due to the overwhelming amount of sauce. I could only eat half of this meal as its all my stomach could take. The manager, Rudy, was very apolgetic. We were given a comp dessert and two $50 gift certificates."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "Food was mostly excellent - there were 5 at our table, we all had some champagne and cocktails as well. We ordered Shrimp cocktail and the house Queso for apps. Queso was great, fresh blue corn tortilla chips. Shrimp was somewhat chewy and overcooked. Possibly not as fresh as it could have been? Four of the five of us had the Ribeye - 14 oz. for $37 - steaks were all excellent, came with mashed potatoes and choice of another side. We also had two excellent desserts - a flourless chocolate cake and a cheesecake 'souffle' which was absolutely amazing. They also brought out a special little birthday dessert for my mom. Service was somewhat lackluster and perfunctory which is annoying for a meal that cost, with tip, close to $500."

  • "This is a good spot for a change. Very nice facility, very nice and accommodating staff. Service was good, and the food was good. Drinks were good as well. We brought a friend from out of town to see the area and we all thought that the evening was fine given our purpose. Having said all that, the restaurant is not a place that has any grace about it, and we would never consider it for my wife's birthday or our anniversary. Nothing romantic, special, endearing, etc. Just a good steakhouse, with a clever Texas twist."

  • "The bread, wine and vegetables were great. The Sea bass was OK."

    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Great location and the service couldn't be better. The food is premium priced and almost worth that level of pricing. For the location and ambience that goes with it, they can get a way with charging a little more."

  • "Can't beat the view at Steiner Ranch. Sometimes very good live band. Nice crowd. Food is so so. If you like steak, better choices downtown (even the chain places like Flemings). Food heavily salted, servers could be better trained and are a bit erratic. But when the sun is going down over the Lake with a drink in hand and some good music this doesn't matter so much."

  • "We switched it up and went with seafood this time around, and the gulf shrimp were excellent. Jay was our waiter and did a great job!"

  • "We came here to celebrate my husbands birthday and it was perfect! First, the staff is top notch. From the hostess, to the wait staff, the bartender...all excellent! Our waiter did a great job explaining different items on the menu and making suggestions. The restaurant was quaint and the ambiance is beautiful! The steaks were superb! My husband ordered the she crab soup as an appetizer and it was delicious! After a nice, quiet, enjoyable meal we went outside and sat by the fire pit to listen to the live band. Again, they were amazing! The entire evening was relaxing, from the meal to relaxing near the bar with a drink and some excellent music! Will definitely be returning."

    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "The service came from an inexperienced server and the maitre d's customer skills &etiquette were lacking. The place made mistakes in food service but no sincere apology was made nor was there comping of the items that weren't even eaten because the error was finally corrected near the end of the meal. Food substitutions were made w/o informing us i.e. romaine for field greens and cranberry juice for Apple juice. Ignorance or lies were apparent in what was in one dish. Imitation lobster was in one even though they insisted it was real lobster. There is an obvious difference in taste and texture of the two from past experiences. Quality of the steak in other than the filet was questionable. Steak was fatty & had connective tissue."

  • "Food was amazing and getting a table reservation was super easy. Our server, john, was amazing. I have been a restaurant and a bar manager for 17 years and his knowledge and how he handled himself was great! Nice to see such amazing service still out there. He greeted u within 2 minutes, drinks out within 8. And from there, he kept suggesting. Made sure we got the right appetizer to go with our main course. Great job John! We will be back Steiner Family!"

  • "SRS never let's me down. They have great food and great service. There are several dining areas to choose from, so you have options depending on what you are looking for: inside lounge area is very energetic, main level dining, upper level dining, and outdoor dining. They have a great venue for music almost every night. The view is amazing overlooking the hills and lake Travis. I perfect spot for sunset views!"

  • "We had the pleasure of watching the sunset on the patio of the Steiner Ranch Steakhouse during our dinner. The ambiance was incredible, and the steak was world class. I recommend the house special, a 10 oz filet topped with crab au gratin, with mashed potatoes and blackened shrimp on the side. Awesome dinner, great place!"

  • "The food and service here are outstanding. From the minute you walk through the door, there is a welcoming atmosphere. Our wait staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a pleasant experience. The steaks were tender and juicy. Out the window, you can see Lake Travis. Overall, it was a wonderful evening."

  • "Food is fantastic,but first rule in a restaurant is your room temperature. It was freezing in the dining room. Complained and all I got was an apology. Nothing they could do about. What??? Spent all this money here and that is your answer?"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "The steaks are out of this world! Unfortunately, we had a waiter who was absent most all the time and had to ask someone else for the check after waiting a long, long time for it. Food fantastic, service definitely lacking."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The food is just extremely over priced for what you get. I paid $42 for a small piece of sea bass. At retail, that piece of fish cost $6.5. It came with a few vegetables. That is way too much. Also, the sauce was not good. My husbands steak was OK but again, the peppercorn sauce was just OK at best. And he asked for a little extra sauce (about two tablespoons) and they charged us $2 extra. Really??? I have never seen that in a restaurant. They did not have the wine as advertised (wrong year) and they waiter did not even realize that. When we told him, he took no accountability and blamed it on another colleague. This is the third time we have been and all three experiences have been bad for different reasons. Won't be back."

  • "We are big Sunday buffet brunch fans and had good experiences at the Steiner Ranch Steak House dining in the evening, so were looking forward to Sunday brunch. The presentation and variety were very good, most of the food was good, but the beef was tough and stringy. Our waiter was nowhere to be found and I had to go to the front desk to ask to pay the bill."
