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

We had a wonderful meal here. A few of us had the Weinerschnitzel (wonderful, thin veal) and most of the party had steak, prime rib, or fillet mignon. The beef was fantastic. We had some very good, reasonably-priced wines, and some delightful frozen desserts. I had the cherry cobbler which i thought was delicious. We'll definitely come back here, often.

Nice quaint atmosphere the Ruben sandwich is to die for and and homemade slaw is delicious. Very clean place and prices are reasonable. I would drive the 25 miles just to eat here again.
