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.

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.

Excellent service from the time we walked into ALC. The staff is very accommodating and willing to provide helpful information about the menu selections. The menu provides a nice choice of items to select from the entree to dessert. The atmosphere is outstanding for an enjoyable evening dinner. The presentation of items and the cost of each item are well worth going back for another enjoyable evening dinner.

Excellent experience. We were immediately seated and waited upon. My filet mignon was cooked to perfection, tender and flavorful. My wife enjoyed the shrimp with remoulade sauce. We will definitely go again

The steaks were not as good as usual. Ordered medium well and they were beyond well done. The baked potatoes were great though.

We literally fly to Austin from Tampa a couple times a year to 1) Eat at ALC and 2) to watch the Spazmatics play at Cedar Street! The food is always amazing, we have fun, phenomenal servers and the ambience is perfect! Our steaks are always cooked to perfection and the buffalo lamb chops are mouth watering every single time!

Very consistent food. Great waiter and specials. Only reason for not 5 stars on food was the steaks were a little fatty this time. But overall great.

Outside the building is a little misguiding but once we entered we were greeted politely, given the option to be seated or wait for the rest of our party in the bar. We had half of a drink in the bar and closed out the tab to take our reserved seating.

The wait staff was courteous and timely. Our waiter knew when to approach us to not disturb the conversation and was patient with our time spent catching up.

Our food was prompt and prepared as ordered, flavors were fabulous and again, the wait staff had perfect timing on when to approach or to let us continue visiting.

Portions were just right, drinks were expertly concocted and the ambiance was very comfortable.

I’ll be back to Austin and when I am, I’ll be back to ALC STEAKS as well.

ALC is a great happy hour and dinner spot. The interior design is very appealing and feels very “old school Texas,” as one of my friends put it. The food is top notch with great service and a variety of wines, beers, and liquors to suit any taste.

The steaks were quite under-done and all had to be sent back, and all were lacking in seasoning. Service was disappointing - our server seemed quite disinterested in our table when we didn’t order any appetizers or alcohol.

One of, if not the best steaks in Austin. The Shiner mushrooms are also fantastic.
