Diner Reviews
  • "hot food arrived cold and/or overcooked. service was clumsy...continued drops of rolls and silverware."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We where a party of nine on Mother's Day. I know it may not be the best time to go out but order was very slow, not completely correct (ordered egg whites got full eggs and ate it anyway), served at different times (some people were almost finished before others got their meal), and never received the toast that accompanied dishes. Very apologetic and bought us a round of drinks but kitchen needed more help on this day."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Love the atmosphere and the food is great. Great place to come after work and enjoy the time. Well deserved place"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The place is ok nothing out of the ordinary , nothing special. Some of the staff are rude. The staff also don't know if they are coming or going. Like I said nothing special."
    Dined on 12/10/2013
  • "This place has very good food. I would recommend trying this place as everything I ordered was good. I will be back!"
    Dined on 10/27/2013
  • "The food was good. Great beer and lots of choices. Fun environment."
    Dined on 9/20/2013
  • "we went with friends who had gift certificates. they have a very broad menu. Food was decent but not special. did not see inside of the bar side but the dining room was very dated. i like bars with old dark wood but this room had a decidedly stale feel. this place is off the beaten path for us and i don't think i'd make a special trip to go back."
    Dined on 8/10/2013
  • "The food was excellent. Terrific hamburgers. The ambiance eating on their recently enlarged and renovated "trackside" patio (Long Island Rail Road trackside, that is), was a special treat; especially on a warm summer night. Service was friendly and efficient."
    Dined on 7/26/2013
  • "On the evening we went they had a large group/party and as a result it took some 45 minutes to just get our salad, because as we were told the kitchen was backed up (due to the party). We only got a bread basket after having to remind the wait staff. The french fries we ordered came as nearly raw baked potatoes, which we would have sent back except by then we were starving. To cap off the evening they made a rather sizable mistake on the bill. Clearly we were not the only unhappy patrons as several tables around us complained to the manager, who clearly acknowledged the problem(s) but never offered anything, such as a drink on the house, to ease the pain."
    Dined on 7/26/2013
  • "The menu was relatively short which was nice - we didn't need 1/2 hour just to read the menu! Menu also included a description of how the steaks are cooked. Service was very friendly and obliging but a little forgetful (when reminded they were very quick to fix the little problem). Overall, we enjoyed the food and the place very much and WILL go back!"
    Dined on 7/19/2013
  • "The service was slow and took a long time for our food to come out. Which was surprising since the restaurant was not even a 1/3 full. The apps (wings and fried calamari) were good. We all order burgers and they were delicious. I would definitely go back, hopefully on a night the service isn't off."
    Dined on 7/16/2013
  • "Our overall experience was pleasant. The service was good and the food was delicious. We were not rushed and were able to spend time with our friends chatting after dinner. It was also the All-Star game and it was nice to be able to watch as well. We would definitely return again some time in the near future."
    Dined on 7/16/2013
  • "It was a good dining experience. The only reason that I didn't give them a great rating is because they were not very "Kid" friendly. Although they have great tasting food and the service was ok, I did not like the way the hostess came over and hushed my child and the children at the table next to us. Seriously? its not a quiet restaurant at all, and with everyone chatting and laughing at each table, how dare you come over and address children for be too loud. Especially when there are two set of parents sitting there. If you're not "kid" or family friendly, you should state that as an disclaimer."

  • "Sunday Brunch was really nice. Lots of choices, good food - mini muffins were fantastic. salmon salad was great, burrito absolutely delish and eggs benedict quite yummy -- potatoes were cold but not enough to ruin the meal. Service was very good and it was nice to sit outside. We will surely return."
    Dined on 6/16/2013
  • "Lousy service, but management was apologetic and gave us a coupon afterwards. Was rushed at the end of the meal, we had gone for a birthday. They did nothing special, not even a candle in the dessert."
    Dined on 6/15/2013
  • "A little pricy for a bar/pub atmosphere and they have priced themselves like a Manhattan steakhouse. But, awesome burgers with many choices of toppings and some original ideas. And great prices on the burgers. Service was more than adequate and waitress checked in several times."
    Dined on 5/29/2013
  • "The Austin's Ale House is a neighborhood gem! Good food, great service (Carlos or Andrew) & a vibrant bar. I shall return!"
    Dined on 5/12/2013
  • "Food was boring and we probably won't be back because of that. Wait staff was nice and took care of us. Half price bottles of wine with entrée on Wednesdays!"
    Dined on 4/24/2013
  • "A great Irish pub with fantastic food. The service is amazing...Michelle was our server and she was fantastic. We were a group of 12 for brunch and management and staff were super attentive. Going to make this a weekly spot!"

  • "the spinach salad was stale and not crisp.rack of lamb was good. poor service."

  • "Went there for Valentines dinner as veteran married couple with a kid, and it was great. We had to wait for a minute to get our reservation but they were great about it. The waitstaff was generous and attentive, and the holiday menu was expansive and properly priced. Although my husband didn't enjoy the food he ordered, the waiter, Billy was very sorry & attentive and accommodating. We enjoyed the live pianist, and the overall atmosphere of community. I went there for lunch for my birthday the month before and insisted to go there for this special occasion. I wasn't disappointed. Cheers!!!"

  • "Our "go to" place when we decide to eat out at the last minute. Always reliable and comfortable, and the food is surprisingly better than typical "pub fare.""
    Dined on 2/8/2013
  • "I wouldn't go back again. It served as sustenance...that's all."
    Dined on 2/5/2013
  • "Very good pub like place near Kew Gardens. A cozy sports bar/ pub. Great bar food."
    Dined on 1/9/2013
  • "Went for brunch which was very good. Service a bit slow but it wasn't a problem."
    Dined on 1/6/2013
  • "Great service and as usual, terrific burgers! Holiday decorations were also extremely pretty and festive."
    Dined on 1/4/2013
  • "A fixture in the neighborhood for eons, and for a reason. Great place to go for burgers and fries, or something a little nicer."
    Dined on 12/28/2012
  • "Could be the best buffalo wings I have had in New York. Great beer & cocktail selection too. Austin's is a great place to watch a game and/or enjoy a high energy night out to eat. The convience of the LIRR is also a bonus."
    Dined on 12/27/2012
  • "After looking for parking for quite a while, I finally sat down to a delicious Sunday brunch. Very relaxed atmosphere and would recommend it highly. Only "down" is the lack of parking, but once you find a spot, it's worth the search."
    Dined on 9/22/2012
  • "The young man who was our waiter did a very good job of taking care of us. I enjoyed two new items: a yummy mini onion loaf in our bread basket and a cucumber martini! My husband's hamburger with mushrooms and onions was perfect. He let me have some of his French fries; they were the best I’ve had in years! My main course was perfection. The mussels in a white cream garlic sauce were large and succulent, the best I’ve had in ages!"
    Dined on 5/20/2012
  • "I think it was an off night because normally the service is good. But it took us forever to get our food. The tables around us were complaining. Though the food was good. Wasn't expecting to spend 2 hours on dinner that should have taken 1 hour."
    Dined on 4/21/2012
  • "When we want a great burger or other pub fare, we always seem drawn back here. It strikes the right balance of cost, quality, convenience, and friendly service. One of our favorites for a night out with our large family."
    Dined on 4/20/2012
  • "Generally a good neighborhood spot. Tonight the place was packed, and I mean packed. We were squeezed into a tiny little table in a corner. VooDoo Chicken left its mojo in the kitchen, totally bland. We come here often and this was the exception not the rule, but still made for a not quite right dinner."
    Dined on 3/30/2012
  • "Fun St. Patrick's Day celebration with great food,attentive service and the best Irish music!!"
    Dined on 3/17/2012
  • "The beer list is excellent and the menu had me excited to eat here, but the food is not worth the trip. My burger was completely overcooked and the fries were mushy. When our beer was poured at the table, the waitress had it so foamy we couldn't drink it ."
    Dined on 3/10/2012
  • "My steak was a lil bland and didn't come out at the temp which I ordered it. Table were a bit small. They did have good beers though. I'm assuming they are really big on sporting events because there was a TV at almost every table."
    Dined on 2/27/2012
  • "I've been here several times and have enjoyed every meal. They have a very nice beer selection. The menu offerings are large so most will be able find something they like. The burgers are a favorite."
    Dined on 2/25/2012
  • "Nice neighborhood place. Food was okay not spectacular but the service was excellent and they have a nice beer list."
    Dined on 2/17/2012
  • "We had an initial group of 14 with reservations for 6:45 PM on a Friday evening, the restaurant was great with the whole party not being on time. The last 2 of the party showed up at 8:30. They were great about it."

  • "My boyfriend and I decided to have a date night and check out this restaurant since it's in the neighborhood. We ordered crab cakes as appetizer, surprisingly delicious and we were excited to try our entrees. Unfortunately, the deliciousness and good vibes ended there. We waited AN HOUR for our entrees. Honestly, it wasn't even anything complicated. He had the grilled salmon, I ordered a burger. AN HOUR. Really??? The the waitress stopped by twice to assure us that we won't have to wait much longer. We did. We waited much longer, and longer, and longer! When the food finally came, they cooked my medium burger to a well done. How can you possible mess up a burger??? Needless to say, it was my first and last visit."
