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 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

We come back every year and we love the food here. Mostly we had prime rib and steaks, and excellent. Good beers too.

My husband and I stopped here today close to 3:30 pm for a late lunch/early dinner. He drives a Chevy S10 and has a 10 ft trailer attached for work purposes (which means we took more than one spot). After keeping us waiting for 5 minutes in a COMPLETELY EMPTY restaurant, the host finally comes up to us and lets... More

I wish TripAdvisor had a way to give this place a 3.5. I've been buying meat here for a while and appreciate that they offer really good meats for grocery store prices. But when I had dinner there tonight, it seemed like they count on you not reading the menu carefully in order to boost sales. I ordered a steak,... More
