Steakhouse
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.

Overall, food was very good. Shrimp cocktail was very good and was a very large portion size so a great value at the price. Wings were very good, but only one flat and the rest drums and I asked for all flats (even at a higher price) but they couldn't do it. Service was good, waiter was personable. Seats are very uncomfortable, both my wife and I noticed.

We have been here before and really like that they take reservations. We both ordered the larger cut of prime rib. I was disappointed that it was quite a bit thinner than I had had before. My brussels spouts were burnt. The drinks and dessert were good as usual. They do not serve bread and butter as in the past. They offer this cheesy bread on the menu, but would have liked some bread or rolls. Service was excellent and atmosphere relaxing.

Had been there in the past, and was not very impressed. This meal was a last minute New Years Eve opening, and either we caught them on a good night, or they have greatly stepped up their game. Really had a good meal, both food and service!

Potato skin appetizer, tasteless. Sautéed mushrooms with steak, hard , likely were frozen, extremely undercooked (waitress removed from bill), delayed service for beverages, food and no sense of being a customer supporting a restaurant which at one time was a “value and go to”.

Although this restaurant is on OpenTable, don’t expect to redeem an open table reward here, as they do not accept open table rewards. Poor management and customer service.

We went to Austins for our 33 yr anniversary with high expectations after a family member recommended it. We opted for outdoor seating, which basically means a few tables on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant. The menu was great with steak, seafood, and sandwich options that range from $15 to $35. There was also an interesting drink menu with several unique martini options - I ordered the Crown Amaretto martini and it was awesome. It was our anniversary, so we went all out. My wife got the Austin's Filet and I got the 16oz Prime Rib, both were up at the $35 level. My wife likes her steak med-rare; I like med. When the entrees were served, we were greatly disappointed. Our steaks were severely overcooked, probably med-well or well-done. The waiter admitted the mistake and graciously returned the meals to the chef for replacements. However, I learned that there were no more Prime Ribs, so I would need to settle for the Ribeye. This time the manager delivered the steaks, but they were similarly overcooked despite his promise that "they got it right". My Ribeye was full of gristle and difficult to chew. My wife's med-well Filet was bland and tasteless. They made her a 3rd Filet, but by this time we were burned out. Even the 3rd Filet was mediocre. What a major disappointment on our anniversary.

Perhaps we visited Austin's on a bad night with an inexperienced chef. They ended up comping the whole meal and drinks, which was the least they could do for ruining our Anniversary dinner. We really wanted to like Austin's but our experience was horrible and we are not likely to ever return.

Love Austin's Prime Rib dinner! They have the best woodfired Prime Rib served only on the weekends. The service and food are outstanding! Tables are socially distanced and the staff takes extra care in making sure you feel comfortable.
