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.

    Used OpenTable to secure reservations. A must on Thurs, Fri & Sat’s. The Americano Top Shelf Margarita is a favorite and go to drink to set the evening on the right path. Ordered Escargot for an appetizer ( love the garlic sauce and bread…sopping to savor the taste). Also had a Caesar salad (great taste with croutons and grilled cheese chips). Everyone ordered the Medium Rare Prime Rib cut with either creamy or raw horseradish and selection of side. Perfectly prepared. The finale was the bread pudding, a full scoop of vanilla ice cream with a Whiskey Sauce. Unbelievable dinner. Americano is the best for miles and miles.

    We were so excited to dine at another restaurant near Beech Mtn. Definitely worth the little drive into Tennessee. The food was spectacular. And others think so too because there was a steady stream of customers. Make reservations!! And you won’t be disappointed!!!

    Americano is a gem and completely unexpected in a small mountain town on the border of NC and TN. We recently ‘relocated’ from the Charlotte metro area to Banner Elk and have traveled a lot for work and for leisure. Americano’s quality and service rivals any ‘big city’ restaurant any day. What they do better is customer service. The wait staff were friendly and accommodating. It wasn’t one waiter assigned to our table. Anytime a wait staff member passed by, they asked if we were enjoying our food/drinks and if we needed anything. I can’t end this review without acknowledging the food and drink prices, which were surprisingly fair and reasonable. The menu selection was more than adequate with price ranges to fit many budgets. 100% recommend this restaurant

    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!
