  • "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."

  • "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 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."

  • "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."

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."

  • "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 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."

  • "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."
