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.

Great food!!! All of our food was cooked to perfection. My rare steak was seared beautifully on the outside and was actually rare on the inside! So hard to get a good rare steak anywhere, and they prepared it just right. My husband had a mouth-watering prime rib. Sweet potato fries were crisp and flavorful, and salads had very fresh ingredients. Overall a good dining experience. However, service was extremely slow from beginning to end-- almost intolerable at times. Noise level was louder than we would have liked. Also, the dining area is extremely crowded. There are so many tables you feel like you're on top of one another. Did not care for that at all. Fewer tables would be better.

The ambience is wonderful, the food is very good. It does take quite a long time to get served and then receive your food. . For instants we ordered a cheeseburger and it took almost 50 minutes to come out, and when it did the fries were not with it they came out about five minutes later. The drink also took a very long time to be served. We missed the first part of our show because it took so long for the food, we actually just got it in a to go box and 8 in our car on the way. This was a Friday evening at 6 PM

Earlier in the week, I had stopped in for a light dinner. Chose Austin's for a lunch meeting. Today I chose the fish tacos. Slightly disappointed because they did not have the slice of avocado that is normally on the tacos but the grouper was outstanding. I love the fish tacos here, even without the avocado.

My filet and lobster were great. My sister had a rib eye steak. Both steaks were grilled to perfection. We both had asparagus and broccoli as our sides and they were fresh and flavorful. We will go there again. Our server was attentive as well.

We were a party of four when we dined at Austin’s for dinner. Our server Michelle was excellent, she was also extremely personable and had a great sense of humor. We tried two different appetizers and each ordered a different item for dinner. Everything was excellent and we will definitely be returning.

My son got sick that night after dinner. He has a milk protein allergy. We told the server, who seemed to understand.

I’m not sure we’ll be able to go back there again. It’s a shame, as we had been going there for 15 years.

Very good meal and service in a great old world setting. My only beef was that the brisket, while tender and tasty, was a bit dry. The vegetables, especially the asparagus, were extremely good.

Our only complaint is that the menu shown on OpenTable is not current. We were looking forward to ordering one of the dishes on the menu shown on OpenTable, but our server said that it hadn’t been on the menu for about a year. But, what we did have was good, and the service was good. Just be warned the online menu is outdated.

Greeted immediately, great service on our visit. Food was ok. I had the Crab Stuffed Orange Roughy and it was not as described. It literally was a crab cake under a piece of Orange Roughy and smothered with sauce. Even though the sauce had a good taste there was so much sauce that it was overbearing. Drowning in sauce may be the best way to describe. For an appetizer, 2 dinners & 2 glasses of wine it was $90. Slightly overpriced for the quality of the food.

It was Mother's Day and they were very crowded, which was to be expected.
They were out of a few things but we made do.
My NY Strip was cooked to perfection and my Manhattan was delicious.
We had a party of 6 and everyone's meal was excellent.
Our server went out of his way to keep up with the crowd and even comped our deserts because of the items they were out of.
Excellent food and service !

We went there on Mother's Day and we did expect it to be crowded, which it was. Unfortunately, all they were serving that day was a buffet, which I did not know. I guess that was my fault for not checking their website. The buffet was ok as long as you got in line right after things were restocked. It seemed to run low pretty quickly. I think the buffet, as buffets in general, were way way overpriced. To pay 31.95 for a plate of salad and a plate of food (especially since I am a vegetarian) is crazy. I would have picked someplace else to go if I realized it was buffet only. The service was very good though and the food I could eat was good.

no is for sunday brunch. Went for mothers day brunch (table for 2) we were seated right next to the start of buffet line - 3 feet away. when people were in line they were right next to table. we asked immediately if they could move us before we were seated. there were open booths that were for later reservation times and they said no. we ate and left - those booths were still open and we could have easily been moved. food was good but i would not go back for buffet. i would recommend yes for dinner when you can sit at booth or table. past experiences at dinner were good
