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.

We frequent Austin's at least once monthly. Nothing was up to par this past visit. Server was slow, lacked any interaction and couldn't even manage to refill beverages. As for the food, my salad was served with brown edged lettuce and our prime rib had absolutely no flavor. Had to salt and pepper it and add a ton of the horseradish sauce to even have something to taste.

Definitely very let down this trip. It will be a while before we give Austin's another chance.

My wife and I had a steak dinner for two complete with drinks for under $100. Steak was prepared well and came with sides. Seared ahi tuna appetizer was good. Steaks were pricier than I would have guessed, but definitely not out of the realm of normal steak house prices.

Everyone was great. This is moms favorite place to eat. She doesn’t get put much anymore so it was a treat for her 98th birthday.

The food was actually good but our experience was soured by a bartender who refused to make my 6-month pregnant wife a drink without alcohol. Such a simple request shouldn’t be denied at a relatively nice restaurant...there are many reasons people can’t drink alcohol, and apparently this bartender was unwilling to go minutely out of the way to help someone have a nice night. I emailed the restaurant with no acknowledgement — will be dining somewhere with better service in the future.

One of the rare eateries that feels like an authentic neighborhood bar & restaurant. The food is always delicious and interesting and the staff do a great job of managing the business. The high-back booths provide for a more intimate social experience with your fellow diners and make it easy to converse without shouting over the noisy din of many establishments. We've dined there for years and will continue to do so.

Austin's is a great location for excellent BBQ at reasonable prices. They have a good list of beers and specialty cocktails that compliment the food. The smoked prime rib of beef is unique and excellent.

Not a good experience. Despite having an open table reservation, there were no seats available without a wait. Food cooked to the wrong temperture and took over 10 minutes to get the same steak back and it still was not cooked properly. Was my 1st and last time to this place.

We have been going to Austin's for many years. We love the laid back atmosphere and the food is usually good and the servers are very friendly. However, the décor is jaded and needs some updating and the menu needs to be changed also. New desserts, please! some new salads and small entree plates would be great.
When the majority of the guests are over 60 years of age, you need to redo !

Our reservation was honored immediately upon arrival. Drinks and bread basket were delicious. Service was excellent. My husband and I ordered the rib eye steak. Tasty but thin and very fatty in addition to not being hot when served. Baked potato was very good and very hot.

I gave this restaurant 3 stars because they advertise as a steak house and it was the steak that had the most negative comments

Four of us had dinner and all was very good. My strip steak was a bit small compared to other strips I’ve had at Austin’s but was tasty. All of had to send our potatoes back because they were cold and the server forgot to bring my salad till later. Also, the server never brought rolls which they always serve at Austin’s.
We did all enjoy our meals in spite of the errors.

We went this time for my husband's birthday, which was ignored. Also, a vegetable served with the fillets would have been nice.
