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.

First time I've been to brunch at Austin's. Very nice menu and reasonable prices. Food was great and they were able to accommodate our large group on short notice! We will 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.

There were several open booths. We were seated at a table (although we requested a booth) that was right in front of the door. A cold draft blew in each time the door was opened. Food and service saved the evening. Midway through our meal the restaurant manager came to the front and I overheard him tell the teen greeter to honor a guests request for a booth whenever one is open.

The person who was acting hostess clearly couldn't handle a large group in front of us. She kept moving them to different tables. Then she went to seat the couple in front of us. She was trying to find them another table they ended up sitting at their original table. We waited approximately 10 mins. When she went to seat us at our table it was small when we asked for another table she told the server to take care of us and walked away. Their was plenty of tables available. The server was good. My husbands prime rib was cold. The pasta was terrible but the chicken parmesan was good. Pricey for the meal we were served.

Unusual bad experience at Austin's last night. Service was fantastic but kitchen was terrible.
Ordered the rib eye (medium) that was served to me ice cold. Sent it back and told them to put a sear on it but still was barely lukewarm when our server returned with it.
Also, they burned the filet my wife had ordered medium-well, even though we instructed it to be butterflied and it appeared that they tried to rinse it off as there was water on the plate instead of meat juices. My wife suffered through it after cutting of the burn but was very disappointed.

I took my 9 year old here for a special meal before our father-daughter dance. We had a wonderful time! They seated us at a cozy table next to the fireplace. The server was very sweet to her and our food was excellent! I had the 8 oz. filet from the regular dinner menu and my daughter ordered the filet from the kids menu. There was barely any difference except that it was served with fries! I suspect it was just the slightly smaller 5 oz. filet, also on the regular menu. She really felt like a princess! Both steaks were cooked perfectly and it was honestly one of the best filets I’ve every had. I would definitely come back here and I’ll bring my wife next time!

Austin’s Wood Fired Grill proved to be a good choice for a week nite, casual dinner. We were seated promptly, and our server was attentative. Our three meals were adequate, but not exceptional in any way. Yes we will go back, though it was pricey. I really like the upscale but quiet atmosphere with a fireplace in the front room. I have already recommended it to a friend.
