I was very satisfied. The mushroom appetizers were excellent. The sweet potato chowder was excellent. The salmon was excellent. The chocolate bundt cake was excellent. No improvement suggested and extremely satisfied ( and full too!).

Austin has several "fancyl Steak Houses, from local to well-known chains but ACL is my favorite, by far. ACL consistently serves the best steaks in Austin in a nice unpretencious restaurant, far from the noise and attitude you might experience at other places. Several of the kitchen staff have been at ACL for over 10 years, that is probably why... More

The first time I went solo and had Brenda. The most amazing service ever and my meal exceeded my expectations. The ribeye with a wedge salad.

Took my wife and daughter out to AL&C the other night for some full on red blooded fare. We were not disappointed! I had a classic ribeye and the 2 girls both Filet Mignons. All quality cuts, chargrilled to perfection. Side serves were generous too!

We had the worst table in the restaurant despite being seated when the restaurant was basically empty. My wife's filet was basically raw. The outside was cooked, but the inside was cold. Our server acted overwhelmed, but didn't seem to have many tables. I haven't been happy with ALC the last few times I've been, but this was the worst... More

We were a part of 6, and the service was excellent (Tarik was our server, and was very attentive). The escargot were delicious, and the fried mushrooms were wonderful--breaded just right and piping hot. We all had steaks--filets, rib eyes, and NY strips--and all were cooked to perfection...tender, juicy, and tasty! The flash-fried spinach was a real treat. Desserts definitely... More

Our 3 couple bunch of "empty-nesters" enjoyed this place for dinner. The men all ordered steak and a side or two, while the women all ordered veggie sides. We were ALL happy with our choices.

We've been celebrating our anniversary here for several years now. We have never had a bad meal, if fact, it has always been excellent.

My fiancé and I recently spent the evening celebrating with my parents our recent engagement. We couldn't have picked a better place to enjoy a delicious meal together.

Description
Enjoy a delicious steak and a taste of Austin. You haven’t experienced the best of Austin until you've been to ALC Steaks. The capitol city's only independent, family-owned steakhouse serves sizzling, hand-cut, aged beef the way Austinites have loved it for over 19 years. From our rich, antique wooden bar to our relaxing, unpretentious dining room, everything about us says, "welcome." Our exceptional service and genuine hospitality are as inviting as the many signature items on our menu. Tonight's the perfect evening to discover something else great about Austin.
