Steak
The best award-winning steakhouse in the area! Worth the drive from Banner Elk (13 miles), Beech Mountain, Sugar Mountain (30 minute drive) , Johnson City or wherever you are. Americano Steak House is a local, veteran-owned restaurant featuring hand-cut steaks, fresh seafood, amazing salads, 1/2 pound steak-burgers, decadent desserts and the only full liquor bar in the East Tennessee mountains will over 100 wines by the bottle and glass.

We kindly ask that you do not show up early for your reservation, but simply on time. We are a small, boutique steakhouse that focuses on exceptional food and incredible service in the mountains of East Tennessee and typically cannot seat guests earlier than their reserved time.

While we have always discouraged them, our policy towards no shows/same day cancelations MUST be firm. No shows and same day cancellations are the plague of the industry and we ask of you to uphold your end of this commitment as we are thrilled to provide on our end.

    Excellent dining choice . Food is always consistently good and pricing is fair . The only downside to the Americano i have found is that they have outgrown their building size and staff seems to be running shorthanded . The last two times we have dined here we felt rushed in our meal so they could seat diners that are standing in line for next table .

    We love to eat at Americano! This time I messaged the owner to ask when they might be serving scallops because I’d heard they’re very good. He replied they would be available tonight and tomorrow night. They were succulent and sweet, as were the shrimp in the shrimp cocktail. A nice house salad, good wine, and Crème Brûlée to finish made the perfect meal. We’ll be back soon!

    We went on Prime Rib night. We had to get a 7:00 reservation because earlier times were taken. We were able to get the last 2 prime rib specials. Excellent meals! Green beans were delicious, wish we had another 2-3 bites 😀 Go early if you want to make sure you get the special.

    Four of us had the Prime Rib special - absolute perfection - prime rib seasoning was tasty but not overbearing. Sides our group had were garlic mashed potatoes, green beans, baked potato, and brussel sprouts - no complaints and no leftovers - all skillfully cooked.

    Firecracker shrimp, were good, she crab soup was tepid, Caesar salad was good, wagu strip steak very good, cowboy ribeye was fair at best. We expected a bit more from the restaurant based on the reviews we read. I am giving the kitchen and staff a free pass because the place was slammed, totally full. A 35 minute drive for us, there was nothing exceptional so we probably will not go back.

    We have never had a bad meal at Americano, and this time was no different. It was my 50th birthday, and our party of eight had a great meal and a positive experience all around. Our server, Bonnie, had no trouble with the demands of a large group and treated us like old friends. I will always recommend the salmon. This time I branched out and tried the Angus NY strip with sauteed mushrooms with broccolini and garlic mashed potatoes. Two thumbs up for that; I now have something else to recommend!

    Terrific experience! Excellent food (filet and waygu strip) and service. Prices are totally reasonable for the quality you get. We had two young kids with us and usually at steakhouses or nice restaurants we feel out of place. Americano is definitely a family oriented restaurant. Everyone made us feel more than welcome. Live music on a Friday was a nice surprise too. Highly recommended!

    My husband and I visited Americano with another couple on Feb. 14th for dinner and had a lovely time overall. My one complain was with the chicken Marsala. This is a dish made with Marsala wine and the chef added a creamy element to it that made it unrecognizable. The desserts were delicious.

    Being our first time eating here, everything was perfect. From the moment we stepped into the door, to the time we left we enjoyed it all. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the sides were great. We thoroughly enjoyed the fresh rolls. We ordered dessert to go and oh my, it didn’t disappoint either. This was our first time dining here, but it won’t be our last.

    Was very excited to try this restaurant after all the hype. Started off trying to order spinach dip appetizer only to find out they didn’t have any prepared yet. This was almost an hour into their opening. Second, requested bread from the waitress, she replies “let me ask”. Third, my partner ordered the special …prime rib tips which was basically a few pieces of meat smothered with onions and brown gravy. Not fitting the description on the menu. Sirloin was also ordered.. only able to consume 3-4 bites due to it being so tough. And yes I realized sirloins can be a little chewy but this was like rubber bands. Later, someone from the restaurant asked about our food. I replied it was fair and then she just walked away with no response. Summary, overpriced menu in a remote location. Not worth the drive.

    First time there and we got lucky and hit prime rib night. It was thick, juicy and tender. All the sides were delicious. The Brussels sprouts are to die for! We split the large prime rib and were too stuffed for the bread pudding special 😔 Fair wine prices and prompt friendly service!

    Been there before, last time food was excellent, we ordered the Prime Rib, last time it was wonderful, this time when we ordered the Prime Rib, the waiter came back out and said it was going to be medium to medium rare, we said okay. The prime rib was VERY RARE, and tough. My plate was absolutely full of blood but ate it anyway. But certainly wasn’t what I expected. I noticed they put the Margaritas in a slightly bigger glass, but also raised the price to 12.00! If you are going to charge that for a Margarita then they should be in a Margarita glass at the least! Very disappointing trip
