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.

    The food was great! When the chef Ralph stopped by to ask us how dinner was,not only was it a nice personal gesture, but he was very professional and new what he was talking about. I would highly recommend the sesame crusted ahi tuna if you care for seafood, excellent! My girlfriend had the prime rib, once again excellent. It was prepared perfectly. I hate when you go to a steakhouse and their specialty is prepared improperly! I can't wait to go back.

    Found this place using open table app while travel for sports with the kids. We all had late lunch style meals. Smoky chicken chili was great, salads were good. The grouper sandwich was one of the best I've had outside of Florida.

    Wife and I went for date night. Big menu. App came out fast, food was quick too. Overall food was really good, our main issue is the price for the quantity and quality of what you get. App, one martini, three beers and two dinner meals totaled $90. Like I said food was pretty good but for that much there are several true fine dining joints around that are far better.

    Having 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!!

    Wonderful 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.

    Excellent 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.

    Thoroughly 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.

    This 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.

    My 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.

    Main 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.

    We 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.

    The 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.
