Description: Enjoy a delicious steak and a taste of Austin. You haven’t experienced the best of Austin until you've been to ALC Steaks. The capitol city's only independent, family-owned steakhouse serves sizzling, hand-cut, aged beef the way Austinites have loved it for over 19 years. From our rich, antique wooden bar to our relaxing, unpretentious dining room, everything about us says, "welcome." Our exceptional service and genuine hospitality are as inviting as the many signature items on our menu. Tonight's the perfect evening to discover something else great about Austin.

It is a little off the beaten path but the food is fabulous. The steaks were to die for and the service could not have been better. Will go back the next chance we get

“Great steak and shrimps with good rice and veggies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

The great taste of the ribeye steak and charbroiled shrimps was kind of expected from the reviews. The rice, the carrots and the spinach were surprising good. Done just right and not oily or buttery. Rice was aromatic. Veggies shone with their natural sweetness.

Service was good. Use of tablets for wine list and feedback was innovative. Free wifi was also a plus.

“A steak to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I was with 14 of my business colleagues and we had the good fortune to dine at Austin Land and Cattle Co. I ordered the New York Strip. OMG! It was an excellent cut of meat and it was cooked perfectly!! My fellow diners were all blown away by the food and the service. Our server Brandon took excellent care of us. If you are ever in Austin, this restaurant is a must!!

“Great Local Steakhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Not to be confused with Texas land & Cattle. This is more upscale. Excellent steaks. Nice atmosphere.

“Happy hour visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Go there at 5 pm before it fills up as there are limited tables. I tried the blue crab cake with fried avocado. It was a little too spicy for me.
