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.

Food was amazing! My husband opted for the Snapper and I chose the scallops and stuffed shrimp. Both meals were amazing!

Not the fanciest place, but the food makes up for the older decor. We will definitely visit again when we are back in Cleveland.

A perfect neighborhood restaurant. Large portions of well-prepared standard entrees. Adequate wine list with substantial pours. Extremely friendly and efficient servers. Reliably enjoyable!!!

We go to Austin every so often. Food is generally very good. Terrific grouper sandwich and wedge potatoes tonight . Cocktails are well made. Prices are reasonable.

First time here. My wife enjoyed the salmon and I had Dan’s Ribeye. I enjoyed the seasoning, the fact that it was cooked as requested and it had a nice edge char. We were able to sit outside , since it was still warm and the back patio is nice.

Good food and moderately priced. Give it a try!

The food was not good , beef brisket. The $3.50 salad was very small, worth about 1.00, brisket was very small portion, cole slaw side was about 2 oz. Manhattan drink was not made well. Not a good experience. Will not return. Steak may be good but high price.

We have never had a bad meal at Austin’s. It’s convenient to where we live, lots of parking and service is fast! We take advantage of the Thursday’s salmon special. Always tasty and never dry or under cooked. We will continue to eat there!

Super duper hot where they first seated us, but they were able to accommodate moving us to the back where it was about 10 degrees cooler. Service was good and food was all delicious!

We always have a very nice experience at Austin's. The food is delicious, and the service is outstanding. The only challenge we had this last time is that the restaurant was extremely warm. We were seated in an area that had no air circulation. To their defense, it was over 90 degrees outside. Eventually someone must have turned up the AC, and it became more comfortable.

Great service and even better food. The slice of cake with "Happy Birthday" written in frosting on the plate was an extra-special touch to an outstanding evening.

We chose this because my husband wanted some good home smoked pork shops and ribs - the food was actually good but the atmosphere and environment was lacking. The flooring is worn and the waitress was vacuuming right next to us while we were eating. The tables are a bit sticky - needs a facelift for sure - but - if you want good porkchops like my husband did - you will enjoy.

Our first time in, celebrating my girlfriend’s birthday! Had driven by a few times and said we we’re going to check it out one day, so glad we did! Our server “Lorianne” was great! Even provided a nice birthday slice of cheesecake for my girlfriend! Very nice touch! Nice portions, good flavor though my chicken was a tab bit dry (one of the reasons prefer dark meat). Still all around great time!

The only reason for the 4 rating for food was that my salmon dish was a bit overdone. Other these that everyone enjoyed their meals. Service was quick and friendly. One of our go-to comfort places.

I was unhappy and quite surprised to find out that my 9 oz glass of pinot grigio wine cost as much as my rib dinner!!! Mid-dinner I said I would love to come back here for lunch or dinner more often because the menus was so nice and the food was so good. But after realizing my wine was so expensive, I would not. This is a lovely, casual local place to go, but would reconsider unless someone could give me an explanation on this. My sister and I each had a glass of wine, nothing special but the price. Please give me a reason to return!

Great value, delicious comfort food, and attentive service by Lorraine. My only suggestion would be to make sure the food is served hot. My prime rib and baked potato were "warmish." Otherwise, an excellent meal and enjoyable experience.

Food was just ok; portions were somewhat small. It appears they are under renovations, which are definitely needed. Our server was rude and abrupt, like we were bothering her; this is the main reason we won’t return. Who needs that kind of treatment? And we graciously left her 20%, but she didn’t deserve it. Will not return to this restaurant.

Waitress was wonderful and did a great job.
My filet was a 7 out of 10 but my French Onion Soup was a 12 out of 10. My Cesar Salad was remarkably tasty also. My friend’s turkey club was really good with think, perfectly cook bacon. I will try that next time. I would definitely go back.
