Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Beautiful setting overlooking Lake Travis, or what is left of Lake Travis. Great steaks but love the fried lobster appetizer. Attentive and knowledgeable wait staff. Pricey!"

  • "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."

  • "Had a great dinner at Steiner Ranch Steakhouse. Food was superb. I actually had the Seabass and my friend had Bobby's Steak. The sea bass was amazing! Will be returning."

  • "Steiner Ranch Steakhouse is definitely one of our very favorite restaurants. The food is great, the atmosphere is awesome (very Texan), and the outside bar/outside seating and especially the nightly music is incredible. We highly recommend it!"

  • "Traditionally have liked this place but staff us less than professional bc they are young, and this type establishment needs staff more knowledgable, experienced, and attentive."

  • "This was our first time dining at Steiner ranch, which was recommended by a friend. Food was excellent...from the appetizer to the dessert and the service was excellent. Great way for us to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. Thanks for a great experience...we'll be back and recommend to friends!"

  • "We had a reservation, and were seated in a section of the restaurant in which the air conditioning was not working.... first sign that it was not going to be a good experience. At our request, we were seated in another section. The service was poor, and the food was overpriced and overcooked. This was the third or fouth time I've dined here over the last three years ago, and none of the experiences have been good, but this was the worst. I won't be back."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Both the food and service were excellent. The bar area has big TV's, a view and they serve food there as well. THE VIEW and the setting are unmatched in Austin."

  • "We first came across Steiner Ranch when we were touring the area, just after moving to Texas. We drove up, and smelled intoxicating meat being smoked. We drove closer and the NICEST guy explained that it was Employee Party day and he was cookin'. He couldn't have been more friendly. Later on, we found out he was their Executive Chef. Wow. We came back when the restaurant was open and were treated like royalty, when simply mentioning we'd never been there before. The manager gave us a personal tour, and again...HE couldn't have been nicer, too. So, when my brother came to town we HAD to share this with him. We had a blast and couldn't have been attended to, or experienced more INCREDIBLE cuisine! THIS IS A MUST EXPERIENCE PLACE!!!"

  • "The steaks were amazing!!!!!! We ordered the ribeye's, they were tender, seasoned & cooked perfect to our order and delivered hot to the table."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The food was not awful, but for the way Steiner Ranch Steakhouse advertises and prices its food, I was unimpressed. We were a group of four. Had appetizers, wine, entrees and desserts. Smoked turkey/tortilla soup, and the cheesecake dessert were quite good. Otherwise, nothing extraordinarily good. Seating was confused, wine selection was confused, our waiter was unsure of the evening's special. "I'm not sure," he said, "because it's new!" Chuckle? Wine glasses not refilled, our waiter told us lots of stories about himself. I've had much better food at Perry's & Flemings. At these prices, there are much better food and service options in Austin. With Steiner's spiel for their excellent food and service, $340.00 later, we were disappointed."

  • "My husband and I came up from Dallas for our anniversary. We had been wanting to try Steiner Ranch for a while. The restaurant is so very Texas. From the cowboy decor to the view of the lake, everything was beautiful. Our server was very friendly and knowledgable about the menu. Our bone-in ribeye steak was cooked to perfection and the creamed spinach was warm and cheesy! This dinner rivaled any chophouse in Dallas. There is an outside dining and bar area where we had after dinner drinks and listened to the nightly entertainment...very romantic! We will definitely be returning on future trips to Austin."

  • "I had the perfect dinner experience at Steiner Ranch Steakhouse. I was seated in a beautiful private dinning area with the most incredible view of the lake. My red wine was exceptional and my meal was delectable! And all of this was facilitated by extremely courteous staff and my exceptional waiter."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The location of the restaurant is gorgeous, not to mention the architecture of the building itself. We ordered the blue-corn tortilla chips with salsa and queso for our appetizer, all of which was absolutely delicious. I got the 7 oz. filet mignon with mashed potatoes and asparagus, and he got the country fried elk with mashed potatoes and broccoli. With steaks, I normally order them well done. However, I'll get medium to medium well next time so that it's juicier. For dessert, our waiter Caleb brought out a complimentary and delicious bread pudding since we were celebrating my boyfriend's birthday. Our waiter was really knowledgeable and extremely professional, and we'll definitely request to have him serve us again next time."

  • "Tonights dinner started out very well, seated quickly by the young smiling girls. The view is fantastic here. Every dining room looks out over the lake. The server was knowledgeable, efficient, recommended local favorites, and was timely in coursing our meal. The FOOD was AMAZING!!! The Cowboy Ribeye was cooked to perfection and full of juice and flavor. I chose some "add ons" and turned up the dish a notch by getting crab au gratin and blackened shrimp on top like the sign i saw, and it was well worth the flavor. There is an option for any wine drinker, and several that are not found on any other wine list in town. All and all, great meal, ambiance, and service for my date and I. Cannot wait to go back and try the Happy hour!!!!!"

  • "Upon arriving to Steiner ranch, my family and I were amazed at the view. We were greeted by the valet and hostess with smiles and kind words. The hostess accommodated our outside seating request and we were greeting yet again by another very friendly and cheerful waitress. She was very patient with us asking many questions and made some great dinner suggestions. The steaks we ordered were cooked to perfection and the sides were amazing as well. Overall, our first visit was one to remember and we will most certainly be returning again."

  • "We went there to celebrate my husbands birthday - the website said open at 11 on Sundays for brunch or regular menu, will take reservations. Made reservations requested a view. Got there - actually opened at 10 on Sunday, sat us inside by the piano - wanted a view, found out had to put our name on separate outside list, they accommodated us to sit outside BUT sat us in the middle of nasty, smelly, cyclist - NO view, asked to order from menu was told that they only serve brunch on Sundays - for 20.00 I ate 4 strawberries and 2 pineapple slices, for another 20.00 my husband ate from the brunch menu, played country music outside - not a fan of country music. Was it worth it - NO. Would I go back again on a Sunday - NO."

  • "The waiter we had was not good. He couldn't handle the number of tables that he had. We always had to ask for water. He was unclear when describing the options for my side dishes thus didn't get what I was expecting. They brought out the salads with the dinner meal."

  • "My family took me here for Father's Day dinner. We arrived 5 minutes ahead of our reservation time, and were told our table was being prepared so we happily waited. However, that 5 minutes turned in to 15 minutes. We were seated in a small room that was overcrowded with tables and guest, and relatively warm to hot. It took nearly 10 minutes for our server to acknowledge us, and we were seated without a wine list, so that was another 5 minute wait... When I finally ordered the wine, the vintage listed in the wine list was not what the sommelier brought out. I pointed it out, but he informed me that they only have the newer vintage. The steaks were average, at best - not what I expect for a $50 steak. All in all, I am quite disappointed..."

  • "Made a reservation for father's day, couldn't wait to take him for a nice fat steak. Checked out the menu online, full menu all day was online. Also checked out the brunch menu before going as well. Our reservation was for two at 11:15. Two disappointments: 1. We climbed stairs or took an elevator to serve ourselves from a buffet. 2. We could not order a steak. Our server said steaks are not offered until after 12:30pm. Breakfast buffets are a dime a dozen. We certainly did not need to drive 45minutes to enjoy one. Then to pay primo price to serve ourselves, they could have at least set up a buffet on the second floor where they parked us. Very disappointed."

  • "Had their food on previous occasions and was very good. Had Sunday brunch and was not impressed. Prime rib was cold, guy at the omelet bar was sweating all over the pans, service subpar for the cost."

  • "We have dined here before and the food and service were excellent. This time it was saturday night on father's day weekend.....I have worked in the restaurant business and I know how busy these holidays are. Although we were seated on time, we waited far too long for our entrees to arrive and my husbands steak was not cooked correctly. The server was apologetic and took it back to be cooked correctly. By the time we were done, we had been there for two and a half hours. I would go back, but would encourage them to rethink how they handle holiday weekends to improve the kitchen service. Possibly they should have comped our deserts."

  • "I made a reservation for a special occasion. I asked for a scenic view table outside. Instead they placed us at the far back tables on the patio. They only view we had was that of tables in front of us. Then when I ordered wine, it was brought out in a plastic wine glass with a gnat floating in it- not much for classy. The waiter took the glass back and brought me a fresh one. As we got our dinner, my steak was overcooked and had to send it back. My husband had ordered raw broccoli with his steak. Instead the waiter brought him 'all broccoli' steamed, by the way. He never got a side of mashed potatoes nor did he even get his sides corrected after letting the waiter know. Overall, the service sucked and we won't be going back."

  • "Took someone special to Steiner Ranch Steakhouse Sunday night. We each ordered the ribeye and it was wonderful! No bone and very little fat. It was cooked exactly the way we asked and was super tender.. Expensive but worth the price. We also ordered the lobster macaroni (comes in Family size) and it was heavenly! The wine list is impressive and the views are spectacular. After dinner we went to the outside patio and listened to some live music and enjoyed the views. If it hadn't been such a hazy day the sunset would have been breathtaking."

  • "Food was good. We booked a table for anniversary. As we arrived our hostess brought us to our table and then told us someone took it. Then she placed us at a table without a view in the middle of the traffic path. Waiter shrugged off fact we were not pleased with table. We ordered pinot grigiot, and waiter brought us pinot noir. When I told him I didn't order it, he argued that I did and even said my husband wanted red (not true). They were great with our 5 year old, and great sunset views. We won't go back."

  • "Fabulous western theme with outstanding steaks, seafood, and appetizers! I treated two of my clients to dinner Saturday evening and was delighted with the food, service, and ambience. An added bonus was the visit from Bobby Steiner, who graciously treated US to a molten lava cake after a truly memorable meal. Thanks so much!"

  • "This was our first visit to this restaurant and had heard good things. We had a reservation and arrived early to have a cocktail before meeting our friend for dinner. The whole outdoor bar scene was fun! It was a comfortably busy Friday night, the drinks were good and the service was spot on. At dinner, things were just average. Our server Caleb seemed inexperienced and uncomfortable. We ordered the lobster mac with our entrees, but he said he failed to include it in the order, so the lobster mac come to late in the meal to really enjoy. He should have comped the lobster mac. Also one of the steaks had to be returned to the kitchen because it was not prepared the way it was ordered, way under done. Not sure we will be back. "
