Our first time there. Lorain is a sweetheart. Fabulous time overall. Will def be back.
Great food--as usual!
Great ribs with excellent service. Not our first or last time here.
Even though the restaurant was very crowded, the service, food, and management was outstanding!
Service was mediocre. Waitress never offered us another drink or more water. Steak wasn’t well done but really pink and when asked to cook it longer it came out burnt 15 minutes later so all of my sides were cold. Manager however was very apologetic and took the steak off the bill and offered free desert. Prices were very expensive to the point you can go to a five star restaurant and get a steak for a better price. I always thought outbacks was more expensive but I will go there before Austin’s.
We have been going to Austin's Smokin' Steakhouse since it opened in 1994 and have always enjoyed our meals, the atmosphere and the wait staff!! Would definitely recommend this restaurant for any occasion or just a good meal!! I had the prime rib, extra large fluffy baked potato and a salad with house dressing. My wife had the mini surf and turf, baked potato and a cup of Vermont cheese beer soup! Everything was just as we wanted it.
Was ok. Food was good
Valentine date was perfect and service was excellent. Thank you again!!!
Outstanding service. The Kobe was cooked to perfection. We were seated near the bar, so there was some additional noise that challenged the ambiance. My wife enjoyed the Lobster Mac-n-cheese and I loved the Kobe and roasted Brussels srpouts. Would definitely go again.
Wonderful meal, we celebrated Valentine's day this past Saturday and really enjoyed everything. We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and the still sat us immediately. Our server took great care of us. The fresh pita chips with the artichoke dip was awesome! My husband loved the lobster bisque. We both enjoyed the prime rib. Doneness just as requested. The bourbon bread pudding was an amazing finish to a great night.
Good every day dining. Staple food on the menu
Good food and adequate service
Always a friendly greeting and immediate seating. Lots of great things to choose from on the menu with additional specials. Pleasant and attentive wait staff. Great neighborhood restaurant.
Have driven past for years and never stopped. Needed a place for dinner on New Years Eve, so we have it a shot. The decor is something from my childhood, but very neat and clean. Service was ok. The food was phenomenal!!! The prices were great! I got the Austin’ Combo 42. 1/2 rack of ribs, pulled pork and brisket plus 2 sides for $25. Portion sizes are nuts. Easily feed two people. Honestly the best ribs I’ve ever had. I’ve worked in the food industry and my wife and I love trying different restaurants, these ribs are to die for! You need to try this place! Value and quality of the food make up for the rest. My wife got the Dan’s ribeye, the seasoning is perfect, no need for any steak sauce, just melts in your mouth! Already planning a return trip.
On this visit it was New Year’s Eve and they had both a special holiday menu but also anything off their regular mento too! My only issue was the non-existent vegetable options. The only one offered that evening was Brussels sprouts. Not something we eat so non of us had a vegetable with our meal.
Food & service atmosphere all good
Best kept secret on the East Side for steaks and ribs. HICKORY SMOKED prime rib on the weekends is outstanding. Remember, though, when it's gone....it's gone. Get there early enough to enjoy.
Awesome food, great portions. Great place for a quick evening barbecue meal!!
Nice neighborhood spot with great variety of choices on the menu and good food!
Austin's is one of our favorite restaurants. We have gone here for years.
It is nice for a family get together or just us two.
They have a nice variety of salads and sandwiches, seafood and steaks. My favorite is the prime rib! My husband loves their ribs.
Great servers, friendly and attentive.
We often stop in for Sunday lunch at a quiet time. Comfy and cozy.
I have been going to Austin's for over a decade and I've noticed the quality control continues to drop. Today my brisket was dry and the pulled pork was chewy and had a strange taste. Unfortunately the prices don't match what ends up on the plate. Service was solid this time but there wasn't much our server could do since he doesn't make the food. Definitely not running back there.
Excellent meal and service.
This place hasn't been refurbished in years. It is dirty, disheveled and the owner needs to spend some money to have it updated. It is unappetizing.
I have been to Austin's many times and I have always had a good meal with good service. Their steaks are reasonably priced and the sides are good. The salad is fresh and there is a full bar if you are looking for wine or a cocktail. This was the first time I ate in the patio, and loved it.
I ordered the trout and it had a funny odor but it tasted okay. Still, I was disappointed. However, everyone else in my party enjoyed their meals.
My husband cannot stop talking about the food!!! He said he would return for the appetizers alone....so you know it's good!!! We were celebrating my birthday and it was WONDERFUL!!!!
First visit to Austin's - not sure if we will return. We were both in the mood for BBQ and Austin's seemed like a good option. I had the BBQ sampler that had the Brisket, Ribs, and pulled Pork. The Brisket was tasty but very fatty. The Ribs were tasty but hard to eat because they were dry. The pulled pork had an odd sauce, but was tender.. My wife had the ribs and barely ate any. The servings are good sized and the prices are reasonable but if you don't like the flavor or textures then the meal is not much of a value.
As always, a great dinner with equally good service!
Our total experience was a total delight, from the minute we arrived until the time we left. Exceptional service. Our waitress was a delight. The food was outstanding. The prime rib was the best I've ever had. The salad was fresh and so good. Huge baked potato done to perfection.
Good food, service great, quantity of main protein fish light.
Great food and service!
Salmon was over cooked and dry. Key Lime was good.
WE WENT TO THIS RESTAURANT TO CELEBRATE FOR MY SISTER-IN-LAWS AND MY BIRTHDAYS.WE ORDERED OUR DRINKS AND SAT FOR A LONG TIME WAITING FOR THEM.WE FINALLY ORDERED OUR FOOD.MY BROTHER ORDERED A STEAK THAT WAS ON THE MENU FOR 26.99. IT WAS TOUGH AND FULL OF GRISTLE.WE WON'T BE GOING BACK.
Great desserts! Good selection, well priced and prepared!
Nice neighborhood restaurant where food is reliably good. We enjoyed excellent service on a busy Saturday evening.
This was my first time at Austin's and I loved it. The staff was so kind and friendly and worked hard to make the evening lovely. Took a friend there for her birthday. What a joy. Many friends have gone there and now I know why.
Was a little confused. Order the Strip and a Lobster tail. Menu said that a salad came with the meal but I received the meal and never got the salad. (I thought that was odd that a meal of that cost would not come with a salad) Asked the waitress and she said the 2 sides that I ordered with the meal was it. She added, "I only bring what you ask for." I didn't press it because it was our anniversary and I didn't want to spoil the dinner by complaining. By the way, why ask if it's a special occasion if you're not going to acknowledge it? No one said a word except the girl that sat us at the table. Won't go back for dinner, maybe a casual lunch...
Horrible experience service was awful spoke to the owner his reply was we were busy
waitress was rude
No trilled with the one TV playing only FOX. Should have more TV's or occasionally switch. We were seated in the back and was OK until a family with a very, very noisy and loud infant child was seated right next to us. That should have not happened seeing as how there were plenty of other tables away from us. It just was convenient to the server. The bar people had an attitude. We could not carry on a Business Conversation and we were already half way through our meal. This is not a place to go for business!
Very nice 'local' restaurant that we enjoyed very much. Good menu selections and friendly and prompt service. We went around 7:30 on a weeknight and it was busy but quiet. Highly recommended for an above average local restaurant experience.
