Yes we went for the turducken. Or at least my husband did. As soon as I saw the steaks I was hooked. A porterhouse for me and the turducken dinner for him and we were happy. Great food and even better service. Our server was Ken and he was wonderful. Attentive and social but not too... read more

We vacation in Sarasota at least once a year and always eat at the Alpine at least once and sometimes twice while here. This time Cam was our server and he was excellent. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I had the cowboy steak and my husband had the liver and onions. Both of us had the... More

This restaurant that is located in a meat market / diner style was a great find. The food: I had The Porterhouse steak and my wife had New York strip and both steaks were delicious. Maybe a bit undercooked but not to the point to send them back to reheat. I ordered the baked potato and my wife got the... More

We were seated in front of the meat display of the butcher shop and offered a wine of the month bottle (pinot noir) for $21. Ordered oysters wellington which were excellent. Then for the entree the sauerbraten which were two big slices of beef marinated in the ginger sauce. Very tasty. The chips are fresh- made and good and they... More

Stopped in to try the turducken sandwich My friend had the burger and fries. The food was good but what also interested me was the large selection of meats and carry out foods. It all looks so good

We dined here several years ago after seeing it on a segment in Drives, Dining and Dives and it was good. This time they did not fail to disappoint us. This place seems to be more of a local place than a tourist restaurant which we like. We'll come back when we're in town again.

My Husband really wanted to try the Alpine Steak House and as a vegetarian I wasn't looking forward to it, but I was really surprised! The Alpine Steak House is not your typical steakhouse, great choice for non steak eaters, staff super friendly. We went in for lunch, I had the Italian grilled cheese which was to die for, will...

The Alpine was recommended by a friend so we thought we would try it. My wife was all set for lobster but they had just taken orders for the last 2 so she went with a crab cake appetizer, crab claws and a filet mignon instead. I had the French onion soup which comes in a pewter bowl that stays... More
