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.

Recently ate here for the first time on a recent trip to Austin. This is one of the original Austin Steakhouses. Lots of locals who know what a gem this is. The steaks were outstanding. The sides just as good and the service was warm, welcoming and knowledgeable about the food an drinks...will be back on our next trip.

We love ALC. Great steak and side dishes. Excellent service. Easy parking. We have been here for two birthday suppers and had good experiences each time.

Austin Land & Cattle is a downtown restaurant with easy parking. It's been here for many years, hidden in plain sight. When we visited the place was not too crowded on a Saturday evening, a reservation was made but probably not necessary. The room was dark but our table was well lit from a small spotlight above. The sound of the blues accompanied our meal. It is the kind of music that used to be common everywhere in Austin back in the eighties. Service was top notch, attentive but non intrusive. That's all very nice but how was the steak? Delicious. A very good cut, generous, char grilled, medium rare. The flavor was just right. Gorgonzola butter made a nice accompaniment. Flash fried spinach was a new twist on an old staple: it was light, dry and almost crunchy. I'd recommend it. Wife had a small filet mignon with crab- she'd gladly have it again. Prices were steep, there's no other way to say it. It's more of a special occasion place. Got our moneys worth? We think so. We'll be back.

Just a very nice unassuming restaurant I would not have found without local knowledge. It was really excellent food quality with knowledgeable servers and a welcoming feel. Margarita's made just right and good local ales. Very nice.

Very good food in a nice location. The restaurant is pretty big but not too noisy, and has also separate rooms.
The meat is amazing: tender, juicy, tasty. The filet mignon simply perfect and the sweet potatoes as well.
Good service.
