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.

This is one of the best meals we have ever had. The jumbo shrimp martini cocktail was superb and in all honesty everything we had was really great. Steak was done perfectly. David also gave 5 star+ service - we would come back just to experience that part of the evening.

Mother’s Day brunch was pretty good. Was not happy with the salmon, potatoes or the breaded fish. However, the beef and the desserts were all very good.

We enjoyed our first visit to Austin’s. It was a pretty busy evening but it didn’t take long to be seated. The food for two of us was very good. My husband chose the special crab stuffed sole and I had the salmon which were very good. My daughter was disappointed with roasted chicken which was very dry so she ate very little of it but enjoyed the sweet potato fries as the side dish.
We will likely be back to dine again. We may try the bar area next time.

Wasn't impressed. The steak had no flavor, the chicken scallopini was sweet and the ahi tuna appetizer was very small for the price. Very pricey

Great experience overall. The menu selection was good (although it could have used more seafood dishes), the value of the meals was reasonable (two sides come with most entrees), and the service was attentive. I had a ribeye steak that was cooked to perfection and tasty. We will definitely be back.

The service was terrific, the side dishes were delicious but the main entree (ribs) for both my husband and I was not so good. We ordered the barbecue ribs; there was no meat on it and was very tough.

We have eaten there before and their other entrees are great but their ribs will not be ordered by us again!

FYI - The mgmt staff actually reads these reviews!
We love Austins. Dine there frequently but had a sub-par experience on our last visit. This time was back to the high level of quality that we've come to expect!
Meals were delicious, hot and cooked as ordered.
Manager came to our table to make sure everything was good (most of the staff knows us as we dine there frequently) and apologized for the our experience we had last time. (They really do read these reviews).
Austin's continues to be a favorite place and we totally understand that an "off" night happens to the best restaurants.

Steak was overpriced and very undercooked. Ordered steak medium and cooked rare. Asked to have steak cooked to medium again and came back to our table medium rare. Service was fair. We felt the restaurant was way overpriced for the quality we received.

There was a considerable wait even with a reservation, host and server were apologetic but there were several large parties that were staying long. Not much could be done, just bad luck



Crab cakes seemed pretty light on crab and asparagus was burnt to hell. Everything else was top notch. Steaks are large and seasoned well

Price is high and the service and food do not live up to the price. Food was just ok. It was what I would expect at about half the price. Service started good but got poor as our meal progressed. Totally abandoned us at the end. Go elsewhere for better food service and value.

I've been to Austin's a few times for family birthdays & all of my experiences have been excellent. The service & food is outstanding. I usually get the filet mignon & you can cut it with a fork, that's how tender it is. I highly recommend.
