ALC Steaks (Austin Land & Cattle)
Topped with mushrooms and grilled onions
Micheal was fantastic, we were celebrating my Son’s 21st birthday and had a party of 6. We sat in the John Wayne room and the evening was awesome. This was our first time, down from the Dallas area. Definitely recommend!!
We usually go to ALC to celebrate special occasions, in this case our 39th anniversary. The grilled lobster was excellent, as usual. The chicken fried ahi tuna would have been better if it were seared instead of fried.
Service was excellent. The server wore a mask and we were seated a good distance from other diners. We felt good health precautions were taken.
This was the first time we've eaten at a restaurant in almost a year and it was a very good experience.
Excellent food, as always. Great layout for dinner and conversation.
Thoroughly enjoyed the meal, service, everything overall, but the ambience plays a psychological game I think ... doesn’t make you feel like you should spend as much as you are.
My family and I love Austin Land & Cattle....this Legendary restaurant is a reliable go to for celebrating special occasions! The food is always wonderful and the ambience is warm! The service is incredible as well.
BEST cocktails and incredible service. Best steak house in Austin!
We were there the night before Valentine's Day and the service and food were outstanding. We had an 8:30 reservation for a bar table but I put in my comments that we would like to be in the restaurant proper if availability opened up. A table did open up and they graciously moved us from the bar area to the regular seating which was greatly appreciated. This will not be my last trip to ALC!
*Valentine’s Day 2021*
Had Reservations well in advance.
Seated in the same area as another couple who were extremely high maintenance - loud, obnoxious and every other word spoken was the F word. Music was heard from the main bar area and possibly the kitchen?...so overlapping music. Food - we ordered drinks and appetizers then our main meal. Steaks (wife’s - supposed to be medium) came out pretty much cold or like it had been out half the day on a counter and potato was definitely underdone, other steak (mine - was basically blue - looked like it was literally taken out of the refrigerator - had asked for medium rare), it was Valentines - was trying to do something special, impress my wife as we’d never been here...I did not return my steak - ate around it and took the rest home to cook), however, did relay my wife’s steak (not her potato) and waiter stated it was completely his fault (still a mystery - Was he on a break? Busy with couple next to us? Or someone else? Anyhow, my wife asked for hers just to be, at least, warmed up, maybe even flash flamed, but when it came back in less than 2 minutes it was way, well overdone. For the price of the steaks I would have thought her steak would have been re-made correctly or at least “fixed” correctly. We were rarely checked on by our waiter...had our empty glasses (wine and other drinks) sitting...empty, for what seemed like forever. Waiter seemed to be very engaged/running back and forth for the high maintenance millennials next to us.
Not impressed, unfortunately (and, it was Valentine’s Day) :-(
It’s like stepping back in time, they haven’t changed in decades, still great food and service. Personably I like that they haven’t changed the look, it reminds me of the good old days of Austin.
This place is lovely! Service is on point and they know how to pair their wines
The steaks were undercooked for the degree requested. The steaks were claimed to be prime but were actually choice. The steaks were served on regular plates so they cooled rapidly. The knives were dull and not able to cut the steak with focused effort. The price was comparable to better steakhouses.
Great dinner! The service and food were excellent.
The food, from course to course, was excellent. The best we have enjoyed in a long time. The service was attentive but not bothersome. Highly recommended.
Best steak in the ATX
Servers are exceptional. The food is delicious. It's locally owned. You can't go wrong with ALC!
$50+ for a choice steak is a ripoff.
Food was great and everything tasted great but the waiter missed a few small requests. Asked for a butterflied filet and no sour cream on my baked potato. Again minor details but if you’re paying too dollar they shouldn’t be overlooked.
Host warm greeting. Food delicious. Service impeccable. Good value.
Steaks were great! Truffle Mac n Cheese was really nice. Service was fine. Everything was good except the ambience. The walls were unfinished, paint job was a little shoddy where the wall and ceiling met, they may be putting some crown molding there soon. They may be in the middle of a working renovation I don't know. But they put us into a table that was directly facing a wall that was not even finished, there was a broken part of the wall and there was no paint on it. There was no music playing and it is very echoey inside. This place got a high star rating on Yelp and it may be completely for the food which was nice but the ambience was extremely lacking. Steaks were 50+ bucks so I was a bit confused on the price point compared to their presentation.
Service was excellent. Steaks were good and the sides, broccolini and garlic mash were delicious,
Austin Land and Cattle never disappoints.
Just an average steak house.
Our server was great. Great ambiance. Even better food.
Great spot, I always enjoy it! Go have fun there when you can and step back in time to the good old days!
Michelle was very attentive, would recommend asking for him as a server. He was funny. Had great knowledge of the menu and what ranch the steaks had came from.
Garlic mashed potatoes
Cheese cake *a must!*
ALC is the best! Jordan, V, Joe, Kara, Z: best team in town!!!
We definitely recommend this steak house. Food was amazing and the atmosphere was good.
Fantastic steaks and staff. One of my long time favorites.
Womderful atmosphere and great food. The staff is amazing and very attentive. I booked 7:00 slot New Years Eves and they only had one time slot left. Even though they were totally booked, they didn't rush my dining experience or stare at me with intimidation to make me leave as I have experienced with other booked venues. I really enjoyed but gave 4 stars cuz my steak was not sizzling hot, not cold but not hot enough for a freshly cooked steak. I will go back tho
Christmas Eve dinner with my brother and brother in law. ACL is my favorite restaurant. Luckily they were able to seat us in the dinning room, since the bar area was restricted (COVID and Austin). Our server was so awesome, she made the evening delightful. Food and drinks delicious as always. Thank y’all
We keep going back. Great meal every time. Parking it tough but worth it.
LOVE Austin Land and cattle. The staff and food are excellent !!
The ambience is ok, it has the typical Texas steakhouse feel, and not the upscale ambience, which is fine. The food was also fine, but the waitstaff, esp the one that served us was horrible. I had made a reservation and we walk in, and the hostess takes us and puts us in the table right in front of the bathroom. That is the table you provide to walk in guests when no other tables are available, not the one you give to someone who has made reservations well in advance, given that there were so many empty tables. I asked we be seated at a different table since I don’t want to see everyone that’s using the bathroom. I ordered for the filet mignon medium-well, and butterfly cut. The steak arrived and it was NOT butterfly cut. I asked the waiter and he just said “maybe it would be cooked well, cut and see” and then he vanished. You don’t cook the food as I asked for and you can’t even show some responsibility ? Also, the the table was not getting cleared properly. Looks like they don’t care much about customer service, which sucks
We had a great experience. Server was attentive and fun, food was delicious and everything was easy and relaxed! Great place :)
We sat in the bar area, chairs and tables were properly distanced. All the staff were friendly and professional, when I couldn't remember the exact name of the wine I liked they did, very nice! As always the food is so good, I got the black and blue salad and the filet was cooked perfectly. My husband got the 6oz filet and said the same thing. So yummy! ALC never dissapoints!
Food was fantastic nas usual. One of our drinks could have been better. Other than that it was a 10!
The food and drinks were outstanding, as usual, and Bryan our waiter could not have been better. He didn't rush us but was helpful and friendly. I always enjoy my time at ALC.
Favorite Upscale steak restaurant in Austin
Had a great time. Got there early and had a quite table in the corner. Started to fill up before we left. Great food, great service. Loved it!
