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.

Place seemed a little outdated, dusty. The AC was COLD, and several around us complained only to be told the AC was set to 74. It was unpleasant. Also only one ladies' room stall, which seemed inadequate at 7pm on a Saturday night (there were people waiting). Food was okay, nothing special. Same for service.

The food and service were O.K. I was disappointed in my reservations via Open Table for our anniversary. When we arrived the hostess mentioned that they had been expecting us, and then took us to the table nearest the restrooms, next to seating for those waiting for a table. The restaurant wasn't crowded. Maybe we should have said something, but decided we simply wouldn't return,

The ribs and brisket sandwich are the very best in the city.

I hadn't been in Austin's in a while and wanted to check it out again. The food and service were fantastic! They were busy on a Saturday night and it didn't slow down the flow of food or drinks coming out. It's a nice in-between steak house, it's not cheap like a steak chain but isn't expensive like the common steakhouses around here. It's worth the money with the distinct taste of the flavor of the meat that you won't get at other steakhouses. Plenty of appetizer options and alcohol too. What's nice is the steak entrees include a side and a salad, it's not a-la-carte. Everything was wonderful including our server Laura. Will definitely be back and recommended my family to give it a try as well!

Historically has been inconsistent and they are definitely in a low now. We overheard they ran out of brisket at 630 on a Saturday night. Most of what I had on my plate was fat so it was probably the last scrapings that should not have been served. They up charge for more things than they should. Won't be back for a while

We were very happy with our dining experience. We took my parents out - actually, they took us out! My mother loves steak, and she is trying to gain weight, so we take her out for steak often. Each one of us was happy with our food, and the service was very good.

After our server took our drink orders and brought us our drinks, we waited about 10-15 minutes, until I flagged down someone else to have our dinner orders taken. Other than that everything was good.

My daughter and I had an early dinner at Austin's. We had been there once before. The waitress was friendly and helpful. We were comfortable in a booth. We both had petit filets. They were cooked to perfection. We decided to have dessert. The dessert portions were large. I had key lime pie which was delicious. My daughter had bread pudding - - also delicious. A wonderful dining experience!

The food at Austin's is always consistent - no surprises. It is good, generous, with
pleasant and attentive service. We have tried many different items on the menu, and
they are always satisfying. Not low calorie - tho' one could always have a salad, and
somehow our plates are always clean when we are finished. Austine's is our go to place
when we want to feel full and happy.

Food was good, waiter was a hoot. Got right into joking around with us. The reason for only four stars was the portion of cedar salmon was small and they did not leave it on the cedar plank so didn't have the full flavor of the cedar.
However, my "well done" steak was "well done" on the first shot. Salad was fresh, corn muffins good and baked potato large.

Food was quite good. Except the cole slaw was too vinegary. The portions were nice. The service was good. Surprised they didn't have any dark beer, considering the variety of meat dishes. Last, if strobing bothers you, sit towards the front or the very back.

A good restaurant. Salads and sandwiches are very good and reasonably priced. Ahi tuna salad and grouper sandwiches are standouts. Brecksville store better ambiance.

Was really looking forward for a good steak to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary but was sadly disappointed. My wife got the filet kabob. It was cold and not tasty. I got the $35 filet. It had a bad odor. It smelled like bad breath. Service was very slow. We won’t be back and I don’t recommend.

Food was just okay, the appetizer was a bit cold and steaks were just ok. The chicken dinner was dry.

Overpriced for the value but the service was fantastic.

Restaurant was very nice, while the prime rib was very tasty it was not very tender. My wife's filet was superb. Should I visit again I would definitely opt for the steak rather then the prime rib.

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.

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.
