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 were pleasantly surprised by this bustling and vibrant dining scene. Although the place was packed, we were seated right away and got our food and drinks in short order. Our party had a variety from the menu-- pasta shrimp, BBQ beef, Steak, and the Corned Beef special. All were pleased with their selections. We liked that ample sides were provided with the meal (not ala carte which seems to be the trend). Value was good considering the amount of food for the cost. Two of us left with "doggie bags."
I would definitely go back again.

I was very disappointed with the chairs at the tables. They were like outdoor lawn furniture. It was also kind of loud but other than that everything was great.

We met our cousins for a dinner at Austin's on a Friday night. The place was busy and energetic. The service was spot on and the food was delicious! We had a great time.

This was our first time at Austin’s and we look forward to returning again soon. It’s a half hour drive for us but it was well worth it. We were welcomed warmly by a friendly man named Phil, who it turns out was the Manager. He couldn’t have been nicer. Our awesome server was Theresa. She was friendly, prompt and professional. She and the other female server working near us were amazing. They both work so hard and never slowed down for a second the entire time we were there. Our food was fantastic and the atmosphere was warm and comfortable. Can’t wait to return. Austin’s is definitely a winner! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The brunch began with the maître d' guiding us to a seat which I could not access without my having to lift the chair at an empty table and place it in an empty place! There was no assistance as the maître d' raced ahead of me with my two male companions. Worse still, she offered no apologies or even seemed to recognize that my seating was inaccessible!
Fortunately, the Bloody Mary was delicious and the pickles crisp but the food was average at best. Maybe, the evening menu was better prepared although I would not want to chance it.

The food was not very great, everyone's beef was overcooked, the prime rib was extremely salty and it was just meh for the high prices. I would not go back. The server was very pleasant though.

We requested seating at the fireplace and we were very pleased with that room. The only thing I would change is calling for reservations and told to do it on line. I am more comfortable talking to someone and making sure that the reservation is secure. Other than that we will be back.

There were four of us - all with differing tastes. We were headed to Downtown Cleveland for a show at 7:00 that evening. It was very loud at first due to a huge group at the bar, but we were seated towards the back which helped keep the noise level at bay. Our server did a great job for us and kept things moving. The food was yummy as usual. It was a nice experience and we were done in time to head out on time.

We were basically ignored. Had our appetizer and THEN our bread was served. My steak was cooked beautifully but the asparagus was disgusting. Had to wait and wait to receive our check. We had made reservations but were given the table next to the door that led to the bathrooms. A constant flow of people walking by. We had asked for a booth but were told they were reserved. BUT, we had made a reservation???
Not a nice, comfortable evening for us.

I am a long time visitor with the Mayfield Hts restaurant. Your location is more convenient for my family. Food is great at both locations.
Thanks for everything. See ya soon.

Party of 8 for my Mom's 75th. Reservation was ready and seated promptly. We enjoyed the round table as it was easy for conversation. 7 of 8 meals were very good/excellent (Kobe steak, lobster mac n ceese, ribs, blackened grouper sandwich and 2 other types of steak). The "specials" included corn dusted grouper medallions which were only average (lack of flavor and on served over wilted lettuce). However, that did not detract from an overall great experience and we would definitely go again....but probably stick to the main menu items....everyone who got the steaks, loved them!

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.
