ALC Steaks (Austin Land & Cattle)
Topped with mushrooms and grilled onions
with drawn butter and lemon
So glad ALC is hanging on. Not the fanciest steakhouse in Austin, but they do serve the very best steak. The steak fries and stuff chiles are special. Always great!
Always a local dining favorite for fantastic beer battered mushrooms and great steaks. Martini and Wine were very good as well.
My first escargot experience did not disappoint. Bone in Rib Eye was great! I thought I was too full for dessert, but the Tres Leches cake proved me wrong!
Great service. Great food. Great time. We came here for our last whoorah before our son was born and everything was perfect.
The food and service were outstanding. The flavor of my Creole poultry entree was all I imagined it to be. Then, the horseradish jalapeño sauce which accompanied the chicken was the sauce I didn’t know I needed in my life. My taste buds were beyond happy.
We had heard about ALC for many years, and finally got there. It will be the top of our restaurant list from now on. The ambiance, food, and service were outstanding. It is not a fussy place, you don't feel like you have to get all dressed up to go there. It has a nice ambiance, great service and fabulous food. I will be dining there again soon!
Appetizer stuffed chile dish was great. Shrimp appetizer was average. Side of creamed corn with green chile's, was corn with cream poured over and green chile's - a bit odd. Pecan pie dessert was excellent.
The steaks were of poor quality, contained a good amount of gristle and one was over cooked. The prices are high so one would expect great quality and perfectly prepared meat.
Would not return to this restaurant.
We were greeted and asked the bare minimum “what can I get you other than water”. We asked for a wine list and it took a while to receive it. We ordered an “almost famous crab cake”. The texture was very unappetizing, the lettuce on the side was wilted, the sauce was oddly sweet. There was corn in the crab cake which was super weird. Don’t overthink it! The crab cake was so bad that we asked for our check and left without ordering entrees.
The ambiance was awful, super low music volume for a weekend night, could hear people’s conversations from across the room, including staff. The decor is bad and outdated—I never comment on decor, but the art is odd and low quality and they have random music instruments hung on the wall. Will not be back.
The food is incredible in a more casual setting for such great quality. Definitely worth a try for anyone looking for a good steak.
Consistently the best steak in Austin. Always bring friends here and then they are hooked too. Mac & cheese is to die for!! Waitstaff is very knowledgeable and always helpful.
My wife and I have hosted our family celebrations at ALC for over 20 years. Always great food and service.
The happy hour bar menu (you can eat at a small table, not just at the bar) is one of the best-kept secrets in Austin. High quality food at a price you can't touch anywhere else. We keep coming back, and we're never disappointed.
A wonderful restaurant with great food and service.
We love ALC. It has been our go to for many years. great place great staff
As always, the food and service were exceptional. Staff accommodating and very friendly.
The food, drinks, & service are always top notch. It's a gem in the city and reminds me a lot of the supper clubs from the Midwest.
It was alright. I got my steak medium rare and it was more on the rare side. There was a lady sitting next to us screaming about how we are in the end times and that the rapture is about to start. Then she went on a rant about pedophiles which was just what I wanted to hear at dinner!!
Really good service. Everyone wears masks to come in and all the social distance protocols are being followed. Food is amazing.
Always enjoy ALC.. Food and service were exceptional
Family owned...makes a difference. Excellent food and service
We let the restaurant know ahead of time that this was a special birthday dinner for our mother with terminal cancer. The staff was so nice to us and they gave us a private area all to ourselves. The food was amazingly delicious and our server Michael was awesome! I loved the experience and my family did as well.
As always the steaks are the best is Austin and the cocktails perfectly crafted. The staff I are always friendly and the service superb.
Steaks were perfect. Definitely worth the price. We will be returning.
The best restaurant, hands down, in Austin.
This place is so great! The food is fantastic and the service is even better. I just love going here for happy hour or dinner. Such an iconic Austin Steakhouse.
Great food. Decent service. We will go back. They need to update decor. Stale.
Austin Land & Cattle easily has the best steaks in town! And you can't miss with their blackened Cajun chicken. Don't miss this Austin jewel.
The ribeye was amazing. Best steak in Austin! If you love wine, try Katherine Goldschmidt, Alexander Valley Cabernet.
I had the 16oz ribeye, very salty, not great. It was cooked properly, I just did not like the method or seasoning. The baked potato was tiny. Overall we were disappointed for the cost.
Excellent service and The ribeye is probably the best steak around!
Excellent as always. Great atmosphere, service and food.
So glad to see ALC accepting dine in customers again. I really missed this place and their wonderful staff. Always the best steak in Austin and out of this world mac & cheese. Brought a friend who had never been before and she knew immediately it was her new favorite place.
Consistently great food and service!
Outstanding steaks, sides and staff. Wonderful place to spend a birthday, graduation, celebration.
We chose ALC to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We had a fantastic time. Wonderful service. Delicious drinks. All of the food was excellent, but the beet salad was swoon worthy. Quiet and intimate setting on a mid-week evening.
Best steak we have ever eaten. Delicious and so tender. Service was great. Our waiter was very attentive.
Austin Land & Cattle is a wonderful place. My husband loves steak. . .I love the Ahi Tuna. Their sides are also great and the margaritas are wonderful. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a night out with good food.
My husband and I have enjoyed ALC's happy hour burger & margaritas many times and highly recommend. This was our first time in the dining room, and we'll be sticking with happy hour in the future. It was "prime rib Sunday" so four of us got the 10 oz prime rib for $34. Prime rib was overcooked and desperately needed the au jus. Broccoli and baked potato sides were good. Service was irregular and the au jus was missing from one of our plates. When requested from another server in the area, instead of just bringing the au jus directly, our server took his sweet time coming by to say, "Oh you don't have the au jus?" and then later brought it to the table. Weird and a bummer, given the steak quality. Maybe our expectations were too high, given our happy hour experience and our belief that if you have a feature dish that it should be excellent. All that said, our folks enjoyed the cheesecake and pecan pie for dessert, and on the whole had a good time. At this point, we recommend ALC for happy hour only.
It’s been a while since we’ve been to Austin land and cattle. The food was fantastic, but the Decour hasn’t changed much and the restaurant could use a refresh. The wait staff was excellent, very knowledgeable, and on point.
