ALC Steaks (Austin Land & Cattle)
Topped with mushrooms and grilled onions
Staff are great.
Steak, wine and dessert!!
For the money...fantastic.
best place for escargot in Austin. Classic steak house with great steaks and other food too! And the service is on point, there when you need them without being intrusive. Great for our first post covid dinner out.
It was the Bees Knees!!
As always, the food and service at ALC are superb. However, there was a rowdy group that was VERY loud and aggressive to other patrons. It killed the mood of a typically upscale restaurant. One would hope that in the future management would take mind of this and make the necessary adjustments.
Best place in town with the best staff in town.
In short, NY strip was over cooked and escargot tasted like hard boiled eggs.
Made reservations for a birthday dinner and everything was perfect!
The ALC staff were so friendly and easy to coordinate with for a great night.
I’d happily plan an event here again, in addition to also enjoying a simple date night too.
Steak was great, wine list was fabulous
A restaurant who's better days are clearly behind it. It may have been good once upon a time, but not worth a visit now. There are far better options in Austin.
Had always heard great things about ALC. Finally got a chance to have dinner there. I was disappointed with the wine list for a steak house. The menu did not include any years of each vintage, and the wine list was pretty poor from a quality standpoint. I don't believe they had a single bottle of a known Bordeaux. The server did not know the years of any of the wines or have much to say about which would pair with our meal. I had expected them to have some type of special meat not on the menu- dry-aged, etc. The ambience inside was in line with a Matt's El Rancho- large, good noise level, but for an old school steakhouse, was generally disappointed and would not go back, nor recommend. Provided a dated setting, and average quality for the price.
Best place in Austin, MOFOS!!!!!!
Excellent food, great service, great atmosphere. Favorite place to eat when visiting Austin. Highly recommend. Good for meeting dinner or date night.
The steaks were good but a bit dry. I was expecting them to be truly perfect without needing a sauce. Not quite there.
I booked saying it was for my husband’s 40th birthday and no one said anything. Just didn’t feel like the experience I was expecting.
Very good food and drinks.
Great night out! Raved to friends about our many years of enjoyment and finally put together a night that worked out. I was so happy to be proved right.
Pretty underwhelming and pricey. Would not go back.
Great service and food! The lamb chops appetizer was really good!
It's a little dark in the room we were seated in. Thats my only complaint. Love this place.
The bone in sirloin was outstanding and cooked perfectly. Truly one of the best steaks I’ve had. If I’m in the area would definitely make a point to return.
I’m back in California now and have thought about that rib eye almost every day since the meal. ALC style.
Great place I would recommend ALC Steaks to anyone.
Prompt service. Great apps. Steaks were good, not great.
Awesome Lamb Shanks!
Low key atmosphere. Old school steakhouse!
We have eaten at several other fine steak houses in Austin and feel that not only is the food at least as well-prepared if not better than others, but is slightly less expensive.
We have also noticed that the drinks are plenty strong and reasonably priced. The quiet, casual "Austin-centric" atmosphere makes for a relaxing experience.
Over the years, this has been our "go to" for quality steaks dinners.
Amazing experience for my father’s birthday at ACL. The oysters, steak, and ahi were phenomenal. The vegetables were perfection. My littler sister is not an adventurous eater, and they were kind enough to bring a bar menu and let her order off that. Great experience.
Pros: Food and service were excellent! Cons: 1) We had an early-ish reservation, and it was pretty full when we got there. VERY loud, difficult to have a conversation until a couple of the larger tables emptied out later in the evening. 2) When we made the reservation we were asked if it was a celebration of some sort, and I said yes it was an anniversary, but nothing was said when we were there. As I recall from a previous visit, we got a candle and free dessert for my birthday. Disappointing but no big deal. We will definitely go back.
Always I great time!
Can’t wait for them to bring back happy hour prices!!
The food was very good. Steak cooked as requested. The pork chops were also very good.
Heard good things about this place so we decided to give it a try. Server had zero personality and was not attentive. Food was ok at best. We have definitely had better. For the price I expected so much more. Truly disappointed and will definitely not go there again.
What can I say? This place makes me feel like I am home every time I come in. From the lobbyists at the corner table, to the couple my grandparents age coming in for an early dinner, and the lovely staff who have been there forever, this place is perfect every time.
Great food. The steaks are expensive but so delicious!
Positive overall experience!
Excellent food, classy but not dressy ambience, great service
Food was delicious, service was great, and price wasn't too bad!
First time for me. Sat in the bar area and loved the vibe. Felt like “old school” Austin. Great cocktails and food. Will be back!
We started with the seared tuna which was divine. My filet mignon was prepared just right. It was so flavorful it didn’t even need sauce, but it paired well with the chimichurri. The hostess was friendly and accommodating when we had to push our reservation back. Our server was on point and knew the menu well which we appreciate. Loved the ambience - very old Texas vibe. ALC is where I’d take someone from out of state for a real steakhouse experience.
Yummy easy fast steak dinner. Try the house made cheesecake
Food and service there is always, every year, on point!
