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.

It was a busy Saturday night, yet our party only had to wait barely 5 minutes. Server was friendly and attentive. Food was cooked perfectly and was phenomenal!! I am a former kitchen manager at a popular Steakhouse and this was the best steak I've ever had!! Amazing quality

Great menu selection , excellent food and presentations. Host was very friendly and courteous. Michelle was our server and she was outstanding and attentive. Ordered key lime pie for dessert but you ran out so that was somewhat disappointing. Michelle did offer other dessert options but we did not order an alternate choice.

We've gone to Austin's for New Year's Eve dinner for about 16 years.
The atmosphere is great and the food is delicious.
Although it was extremely busy, our waiter was very efficient and friendly.

There were four of us. Food was excellent and our server was friendly. The place was packed for New Year’s Eve, but we really didn’t wait long for anything even with the restaurant being busy. We will be back.

I admit to having been underwhelmed by my recent Sunday brunch at Austin's (Brecksville). I've been a regular and have often recommended Austin's to friends/colleagues. The food just wasn't as good as usual. I guess I should have returned mine, but I had guests with me and didn't want to make a fuss. My husband and I were disappointed this visit.

Service is always good and I love the ambiance - fireplace.

We come here a lot and the food is good, but nothing out of this world. They have a good menu and everyone in our group easily finds something they like. I like that this place is not a huge chain and the staff is always very friendly.

All of our meat was overcooked. I sent my prime rib back 2 time and finally requested a petite filet, med rare and it was medium at best. Grilled asparagus was salting a burn tasting. Crab cake appetizer was the best part of the meal. We were in an area were there was a group of approx. 25 people and the noise level was over the top to the point we could not carry on a conversation amongst my group of 4. For the price of the meal, I was embossed to bring my friend we was previously in the food service industry. I will be hard pressed to return

It seems the only time we get excellent food and service is on a weekday. My impression is that they cannot handle the weekend rush. My steak was over cooked and too salty. My friend actually dabbed her steak with a napkin to get the salt off of it. I asked for my salad to be brought out with my meal. There was a pile of lettuce on my plate that I would have called a garnish not a side salad. In all fairness, I did not complain and give them a chance to make things right. It was late, it took a long time for our food to come out and I just wanted to eat. As they are just down the street and everyone else liked their food I am sure we will go back. And if the experience repeats, I will speak up.

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.

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.
