A word from Austin's Woodfire Grille - Brecksville
Austin's Woodfire Grille is located directly across from Heinen's in the heart of Brecksville. 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. It’s 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.Continued

- Melt in your mouth!AvaSDined on 10/3/2014Having read other Open Table reviews we decided, after 20 years, to give Austin's another try. The Dan's Ribeye was done perfectly and was delicious!! Although the dining room was packed, we were able to converse easily and the service was not damaged by a large table with young children nearby who shared our waiter, Dave. He was seemingly everywhere at once and, except for calling us 'you guys', was helpful and efficient. The price points were high enough (with tip, over $100) to move this into a less-than-monthly visit, but we enjoyed ourselves!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fine steakhouse diningdiningwellDined on 9/19/2014Wonderful setting with steak house decor of wood panels and iron, well kept and polished. Greeted promptly by respectful staff who never referred to us as "you guys" rather "Miss and Sir." Checked on frequently. Appetizers and soups brought promptly as well as delightful corn muffins and bread. Special request for garlic related allergy handled professionally and food was served just at the right time, Calamari delightful as served polynesian style, crab cakes with aoli paired tastefully and French Onion soups tastefull with well-carmelized onions and robust stock not laden with salt. Salads were not water-drenched; crisp and full of market vegetables with taste. Filets, lobsters and crab cakes prepared to order. Desserts to go, mmm.Special Features:
- Great bsns dinner locationregulardinerDined on 9/17/2014Excellent choice for an informal business meeting, prior to an evening presentation to a group of 50 at a different location. Menu was quite varied in spite of the steakhouse image. My group was ethnically diverse, so have diverse dietary preferences. Austin's menu contained abundant opportunities for all. The quality of both the service and food were excellent. We have used Austin's in the past, and will continue to patronize it in the future for our small gatherings.Special Features:

- Great Food & ServiceCherDined on 8/16/2014Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Filet mignon cooked perfectly. Delicious side vegetables. Shrimp Fettuccine excellent. Serving was quite large, however we wish there were more than only 4 large shrimp. What really made our visit enjoyable was the exceptional service! Shawna was very attentive and personable. We were concerned that service might be slow because a large party was seated about the same time we were seated. But the worry was unnecessary. She did a wonderful job.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Anniversary DinnerJSLoveFoodDined on 8/15/2014This was our first visit to Austin's Woodfire Grille. The restaurant was tucked away and a little difficult to find. The service and the food was very good but not exceptional. My wife ordered the New York Strip and I chose a Shrimp & Crab Cake Meal. Her steak was prepared perfectly. The seafood in my opinion was good but didn't warrant the price tag.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/31/2014Never had a bad meal here. We totally enjoy the stuffed crab mushrooms and have been on the menu for years and always get better.

- Easter DinnerRandiDined on 4/20/2014This was a great spot for Easter dinner. Not too crowded. Great Ambiance. This place is a step or two above Outback in both price and quality but not a Flemings or Ruth Chris (in price or quality).Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Quiet Thurs dinnerToddVIPDined on 3/20/2014Overall, had a nice dinner. It was quieter than expected because not many people there. Love the scallops appetizer. Had the seared tuna which was too peppery, but still pretty good.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good Food, Great ServiceSarahDined on 3/15/2014The food at Austin's was very good. Two of us had the prime rib, which was cooked to our liking.

- Still UndecidedleshaDined on 2/15/2014My husband and I went to Austin's for Valentine's day weekend. The service was horrible! We had to change our reservation time to a later date and once we arrived on time, we still had to wait. The staff hardly acknowledged us and never once greeted us in a friendly manner. This was our first time going to this place so I expected a litte bit more professionalism. Some of the waitresses had on regular clothes and the place was a little bit off. It was very noisy and like i said the staff didnt pay us any attention until everyone almost cleared out the place. Our appetizer came AFTER our entree as well.Special Features:
- Main entrée very good. DisappointedmrronDined on 2/14/2014Main entrée very good. Disappointed in Austin salads which were warm and not at all crispy. Everything else was good. Service slow, probably due to Valentine's Day crowd. Salad served at same time as main entrée. Overall, it was enjoyable but not the best.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- We loved our dinner. ThanksPOLARBEARDined on 2/14/2014We loved our dinner. Thanks open table. One note to the chef. My guests all loved their dishes: 2 surf and turf, one sirloin. I had the seared tuna and I was disappointed with the wasabi sauce and sesame soy dips. They were both very bland and I had to have our server bring out a tangy orange-colored sauce and a barbecue sauce that both helped saved the dish. The mixed vegetable medley and onions and mushroom dishes were excellent. Please contact me if you would like to discuss. Thanks again for a great evening, we will be back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food, HVAC needs adjustingJohnDined on 2/8/2014The food at Austin's is consistently very good. The choice of two side dishes is a little off because all but the vegetable are starches. I like coming to Austin's, but the heating and air conditioning system sometimes makes my visits unpleasant. I usually find the restaurant too cold and drafty. That was again the case on this visit.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Austin steak.BlackbearDined on 2/4/2014Cut of steak was great. Taste and size. Looked crowded, but once inside... was roomy and spacious. Was noisy. Just right for a couple to enjoy.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great FoodCruiserDined on 2/1/2014Great food, 5 star quality. Represented within my party were dishes including steak, seafood, and pasta (with steak in it), and all the dishes were outstanding. The food was served VERY fast, and cooked to order. Appetizers rocked. Ambiance cannot be beat.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Birthday CelebrationDaughterDined on 2/1/2014It was my friends first time at Austins. They were impressed with the quality of the meal and the service. We shall return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good overall, but a bit loudgrzgDined on 1/31/2014Good food and service, but a little too loud for conversation.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice neighborhood steakhouse.kab1120Dined on 1/18/2014We have dined at Austin's many times and always enjoy our experience. I had a taste for a nice steak and was able to snag a reservation for four on a Saturday night via Open Table. (We had made last minute plans to see a movie and could not chance walking-in somewhere.) Everything was great - from my "Crown Jewel" martini to the petite filet and grilled shrimp I devoured! Austin's never disappoints.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice ambianceronpatDined on 12/31/2013The fireplace room is very cozy, especially on a cold winter night like the night we visited. The wedge salad and thick cut parmesan potato wedges were excellent. We both had ribeye steaks which were good but not better than we have had elsewhere. Our server Nicki was excellent. Very friendly and prompt, even though it was busy.
