This is a meat lovers paradise. But if you like lobsters and crab, you too will be in paradise. We love to bring our colleagues here for the food is always consistently fresh, delicious and a crowd pleaser. The price are reasonable and the service is excellent. Come with the family, or as a couple, the veal made German style... More

When we are over from the UK ,we always call at the Alpine Steakhouse. After a five year absence,we were looking forward to our visit however, this time, we were slightly let-down by the standard of food served. We'd like to clarify that the food wasn't bad but it was just rather average and have since eaten better dinners in... More

Living here in SRQ for years the best place hands down for a 1/2 pound steak burger is here! I get it extra rare with a 1/2 thick piece of raw onion and an order of their fries! Now if your mouth is not watering as you read this, forgetaboutit!

We were in a tough spot - a Monday during the summer and a number of restaurants were closed. We found this place and we couldn't have been happier. Right off the bat, the staff was extremely friendly from the person taking our reservation to the server. Whatever they're doing to train the staff, they do it right. Seems as... More

I had the opportunity to eat at the Alpine Steak House in Siesta Key/Sarasota this past week. It has a European theme with a list of menu items to satisfy everyone. I was with a party of 10 people and the staff handled the group size with no problem. The meal was fantastic. Everyone at the table enjoyed what they... More

We enjoy eating at the Alpine steakhouse, the steaks are delicious and the prices are pretty decent. My wife and I can go and have steaks with salad and sides for under $40. It is not a fancy restaurant but the food is worth the experience.

Saw the turducken sign and had to go before we left Sarasota. The mrs watched their cameo on Americas top diners and agreed we needed to check it out. The T ducken was awesome I've always wanted to try it. It's set as a small old school diner and half meat market. Really enjoyed the meat, soup, and other selections!

Puzzled by the wide range of TA reviews, we went to the Alpine Steak House with an expectation of a mediocre experience. Boy, were we impressed. Turducken, NY strip, lamb rack, & ribs were all perfectly cooked. Gorganzola salad in chilled metal bowls and garlic bread were delicious. Crab cake appetizer was excellent. Prompt and attentive service capped our experience.... More
