Great steaks with a friendly atmosphere .

Nothing fancy but the food is great , quality beef and friendly staff . Staff is knowledgable and really seem to care about your dining experience . Restaurant decor is dated but well maintained and very clean . Great value , will return there as soon as we are back in the Sarasota area.

My wife and I had dinner and again were very please with the food and service. My wife had the Ahi slider appetizer. The fish was rare and covered in sesame seeds but it was the wabasi coleslaw that made it stand out. I had the queen-cut of prime rib which was also excellent. The restaurant is in a meat... More

Had the best meal here at Alpine Steak House when my sister and I ate here in May. The service was top notch, the food was unbelievable, and would love to go again! Everything was great!

Was looking for a nice, affordable steakhouse for the family in a Sarasota area. Read up a bit on a few and decided to give the Alpine a try. The restaurant itself looks quite a bit rundown so it took a little convincing to get my family to go inside. Once inside we were promptly greeted and seated. The inside... More

The market has wonderful meats and other entrees you can take home and cook. His meat is always tasty .. The restaurant side is hit and miss. But when the prime rib is on, it is a hit. Steaks are good. Know for their turducken. Never have had it ... Worth a trip to try a meal...

Nothing fancy just good food. Love the prime rib, you can cut it with a butter knife, they make their own italian sausage and the best beer battered french fries EVER....staff is fun and friendly. This is always a place I visit when I'm in Sarasota on business and I have to drive pretty far to get there. Worth the... More

And this was definitely a looser. Both of our meals were pretty awful( schnitzel and turducken). Service was acceptable but we will not be returning due to the taste of the food.

My sister and I did a girls only trip the 3rd week of May and decided last minute to try the Alpine Steakhouse. We went on Thursday and we flew back home on Saturday. I could have ate here every night! We each had steaks, baked potato, and salad. Everything was just delicious! Our waitress Kay was super! You must... More

My wife and I dined at the Alpine Steakhouse last week while visiting relatives in Sarasota. It lived up to the Diners Drive-Ins and Dives hype! We had the Charbroiled Oysters for our appetizer and they were intesely tasty! The char taste along with the cheese was delicious although I must say they were tiny. Mary had the weiner-schnitzel dinner... More
