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.

We had a great experience. Our server Dave did an exceptional job. He was attentive, friendly and efficient. The food was very good and delivered hot. We have been to Austin’s several times and have never been disappointed.

The Happy Hour includes appetizers at half off along with beer and wine specials...not sure about the prices of the drinks - no lists. The bar area has a friendly atmosphere, especially, when Carmen works.

This dinner was for mother-in-law's birthday and was absolutely terrible. The restaurant was not busy when we arrived and our server may have been the only one working. We had to ask for more bread when it was empty because our kids were starving having to wait so long. When I asked how the meals were coming along after 45 minutes - I was told we're close... it took another 10-15 minutes to come out and when they did come out, the two rib dinners were wrong and looked like they were sitting under lights. They were also lukewarm, not hot..

We used to go to Austins quite a bit, however that won't happen again..

We used Open Table to make the reservation but when we arrived for our reservation, we were told the reservations don’t always come through from Open Table. They did not have a table for us, so they found us a table in the bar area. They had a diverse menu with multiple options. The meals were excellent and the service was very good too. I would recommend and we plan on dining at Austin’s again in the future.

Was disappointed that the website special for $10 off beef tenderloin was not valid for that Monday. Please update the website. Had ribs which were not "melt off the bone" tender.

I had a reservation for 6:00. Our group of 4 didn't get served until 8:00. There was a big party in the back room. I had to send my steak back because it was burnt and way overdone. I ordered medium. The people I was with had a;ready finished their meal and still I hadn't gotten another steak.
Two of the others said the food was o.k. but they would not come back.
Finally I said I didn't want anything anymore. I didn't want to eat while the others were waiting for me to finish plus we were at the 8:30 mark.....too late for me to eat a heavy meal. They did send the steak home with me but it is never as good as fresh off the grill. Things are not cheap. I paid for my wine and I ordered dessert and coffee since my food didn't come with the others. That cost was $20.00.
Nedless to say, my guests from Parma do not want to come back to Austins. I was pretty disappointed since I recommended Austins for a family get together.
I've eaten here before and the food and service was pretty good.

We had a great server and food was delivered to the table only after a short wait. Food quality is above average. Atmosphere was quiet for the day visiting at lunch. Have been at Austin's for dinner which is more busy. Chose location because it was close to work. Will be back.

First time there. Food was better than average. I got the Austin Combo with ribs and brisket. The brisket was great. Told the guy that seated us that we had reservations. He didn't ask our name or anything and just took us to our table. Got gigged by Opentable because he didn't ask our name and didn't take us off of the Opentable reservation list so we looked like a no show.

We are somewhat spoiled from living in Tremont but we purchased a house in Brecksville and friends suggested the place. Service was great. Very attentive. As far as appetizers go, bruchetta was tasty but the ahi tuna not very good. My husband ordered ribs and he said they were excellent. My petite filet was less than stellar. Wine selection was nice. I think we’re going to consider it a good rib and burger place but we’ll probably head back to Tremont for the really fine food.

My husband and I decided to try Austin’s for the first time and we were not disappointed. The place was clean and very inviting. Our service was excellent and the bread and muffins given while we waited for our meals were quite delicious. He had the smoked brisket and I had the chef salad and both were very good and plentiful. We will definitely be back.

We found Austin’s several years ago when my husband was working in Ohio. I was in Maryland. When I would come out to Ohio we would have our date night at Austin’s since the food and service was the best around. The drinks are great too. We’re back in Maryland but visited Ohio for the Art Show and couldn’t miss the chance to visit Austin’s one more time. Wish you were in Maryland. We’ll miss your great steaks! Thank you

All the seafood we ordered was great, but the steaks were all tough, loaded with gristle, and not comparable to past dining experiences at this restaurant. Service was attentive and friendly.
