A word from Austin's Smokin' Steakhouse
At Austin's, we've been cooking the old fashioned way since 1994. We start with the freshest ingredients we can find, delivered to our kitchen each day of the week. We make everything on our menu from scratch, every day. We grill over hardwood, not gas, the way that it was a long time ago. It may not be the fastest or least expensive way to do business, but for us, it is the only way. We want each meal you enjoy with us to be a memorable and delicious one; so we work hard preparing each dish to order, smoking ribs and brisket, filleting fresh fish, hand cutting steaks, preparing homemade soups daily and baking our fresh breads and desserts. Its a difference you can taste and one we hope you will keep coming back for. At Austin's, everything we do, we do because our customers deserve it. We will always insist on a level of service and quality that helps us deserve you.

    My cosmo was awful. Should be cranberry juice based. This was maraschino cherry liquid based. Yuk! Never complained, but was awful. Ordered a ribeye ($26) medium rare. Received a ribeye that was 1/4" thick on one side. The other side was maybe 3/4" thick. Not even remotely cut evenly. Told the waitress immediately. Her response was that's the way he cut it....Really. I said for what I was paying I expect a piece of steak cut uniformly. Realize I wasn't being cheap as I ordered a side lobster tail which was fine. Next ribeye came out fine, but husband was done eating. Probably not going back again. Considering the price we paid for our meal, we have had much better meals elsewhere. Check my other reviews.

    I have been to Austin's a few times and although I have never been WOW'd it was always good, reasonable priced and in the neighborhood. But I think that this was my last time. My wife's Center Cut Port Chop was like shoe leather and my friend's Brisket was more fat than meat. It is a shame as I came to Cleveland from Houston and it would be nice to have an excellent BBQ house close bye.

    Steak was kind of overdone. Salad was good - no iceberg lettuce, not drowned in dressing. French onion soup had lots of onions. Bread was just out of oven, but we had to ask for it. My daughter ordered a lemonade, but we weren't told until she wanted a refill that it was a bar drink and refills are $1.50. Was a tad noisy.

    The food at Austin's is always good but what made our visit memorable was our server. Heather has waited on us before but it has been several months since our last visit. She remembered us AND what we ate our last time there. She was great and we will certainly return to Austin's in the future.

    We are at Austins on a fairly regular basis. Weekends are the time for Prime Rib and they do an excellent medium rare version. My wife had the Salmon, cooked medium as she likes it. The house salad is wonderful. We count on consistancy and get it here. The waitstaff is always attentive and friendly. This is a neighborhood gem!

    It seems this restaurant is on a downward spin. We always counted on Austin's for a good meal with good service. For the second time, our food (salmon) was overcooked and tough. The side dish (baked potato) was fine and the salad was uninspired. The request to withhold the dressing was missed. The wait staff was a bit blunt and dispensed with any pleasantries. When it was time to order, our waiter issued a military-style "Go!" He did warm up toward the completion of dinner. To be fair, we could have sent our meals back to be cooked properly, but the hour was late and we just made do. Unless we hear raves somewhere down the road, we will not be returning to Austin's.

    On one of the coldest nights, we did not want to venture far for dinner. The GPS said Austin's was .1 miles from the hotel and the prices seemed reasonable. We were extremely pleased with the food and service which was personal and attentive. The seating area was rustic and of course a bit on the loud side but did not detract from the experience. I would recommend this restaurant.

    This restaurant was a random selection while shopping in the area. We were sat at a very off table right at the door with seats for people waiting to be seated attached to the booth. THIS WAS NOT GOOD. It was like the restaurant stuck a booth there to seat another group, but this makes it very awkward when people are staring at you eat.

    This is a neighborhood staple and I would like it to stay around but I think the service is poor. I never got an offer for a beer refill until halfway finished with my meal. Never offered dessert. We had a birthday at the table and nothing special for her, etc. etc. The food was ok but the salmon was burnt on the bottom. She said they cook all their fish til done. They sure do! Not for foodies and there really isn't a wine list. We weren't offered one an;yhow. No bar scene. No outdoor dining

    Our table was about the 3rd booth in from the door, and it was very dimly lit. I think all the booths were. It seemed more well-lit out in the main dining area. Also, every time the door opened we were hit with a cold blast. I put my coat over my legs. The food was very good, and the service was outstanding! Both our servers were friendly and attentive. My crabcakes and shrimp dinner was delicious, but my boyfriend's Austin Steak was butter-knife tender, and VERRRRY delish!! It was a fun evening out.

  • Don't order the Dan's ribeye
    BigEaterVIP
    Dined on 10/6/2013
    I think it's probably the only thing I would not order at this steakhouse is the steak....not worth it. Ribeye was tasteless and overly greasy with added butter. Chicken wings were great, croissant turkey club was excellent and the dessert was very good. I probably should have tried the ribs, maybe next time. Service was great. I tried Austin a number of years ago and I was unimpressed with their steaks, nothing has changed.
