Below are some of the favorite Austin steakhouses.
98 San Jacinto Blvd., Austin TX 78701
This upscale restaurant located downstairs at the Four Seasons Hotel has a warm, modern decor and flavorful entrees and sides prepared and presented nicely. Their steak choices are flat iron USDA prime, filet mignon, bone-in ribeye, and akaushi strip. They also have a wide selection of other entrees, including seafood, lamb, and chicken, and a choice of salads. Their breakfast and lunch are apparently also outstanding; their pancakes and burgers are highly recommended. Service is professional and attentive, starting with the manager.
Fogo de Chao
309 E. 3rd St., Austin TX 78701
An authentic Brazilian steakhouse where the gaucho chefs come to each table offering 15 different savory selections of meat, carved to order and dispensed onto your plate. Selections include T-bone lamb, filet mignon, picanha (top sirloin), beef ancho (ribeye), fraldinha (bottom sirloin), and lombo (pork loin). All delicious, with varying flavors and textures – some a little different from what you might expect. There’s also the well-stocked salad and sides bar, with prosciutto, salami, and different types of cheese and salads. If you have room for dessert, the papaya cream is a good choice.

Eddie V's Prime Seafood
301 E. 5th St., Austin TX 78701
9400 Arboretum Blvd. Ste. B, Austin TX 78759
Despite the name, Eddie V’s also serves outstanding steaks. Recommended are the 8-ounce filet with lump crab meat or the ribeye steak. If you’re feeling adventurous you can try the beef carpaccio or the 22-ounce ribeye. For non-meat-eaters, the truffled mac and cheese is delicious. For dessert, the cream brulee is a good suggestion. Atmosphere is inviting and high class, with live piano music. Although a bit on the crowded side, it’s quiet and private. Professional, attentive service.
Perry's Steakhouse & Grille
114 W. 7th St. Ste. 110, Austin TX 78701
Elegant, stylish decor with private booths and roomy tables for larger groups. Great steaks, including the 12 ounce filet and the bone-in tenderloin. All seasoned and cooked perfectly to specification. Also recommended is the peppery calamari appetizer and the homemade sausage. The huge, and delicious, Friday lunchtime pork chop is also quite popular. Service is attentive and efficient.
