Steakhouse
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. Its 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.

    This is my third or fourth visit. Ordered something other than a steak and was just average. My husband and our friend enjoyed their meal. Disappointed in beer / hard cider choices. (No hard cider). On mine menu notes gluten free options. Not a lot. Lettuce wraps for the fajita are very small romaine leaves. Server never offered to bring water for the table. No gluten free options for dessert. Love the petite filet I've had previously. Prefer not to have the baked potato smothered in salt. The broccoli side is good and not overcooked. Unfortunately, this will only be a place to come for special occasions to enjoy steak.

    My compliments to the chef! Myself, my fiancé and my 12 year old son had a wonderful meal! He had chicken fajitas and my son and I both had the salmon, rice, and broccoli. We also ordered BBQ wings and cornbread bites for appetizers which were delicious! Our server, Velesia, was friendly, attentive and provided us enjoyable dining experience and a desire to come back soon! Thank you!

    It was great, although we were disappointed with the service and noise level. I know that restaurant’s are having tough time keeping staff consistent. Over all I would actually give this a 3.8 rating.

    2/4 entrees we ordered were not availabe. Apps were ok - not great. Potato skins and stuffed mushrooms. Neither seemed cooked enough. Not terrible but I wouldn't order again. Steaks were just ok. Not bad - average. Service was outstanding but I wouldn't go out of my way to return.

    Good menu selection. Food is very good and the service is generally very good. It is a little loud. It is difficult to determine value in today's economy, but Austin's is a little overpriced, but is a very good experience.

    I loved the menu and our server. However I thought it took too long to get our cocktails and I was a disappointed with the food. Also, for the decor and ambiance they are trying to achieve the music was very loud and it was random rock music that didn't suit the environment. I asked if it could be turned down (there were 6 of us in our party) and while our server said she'd ask, it never got any quieter. We were there to celebrate a family member and having to talk over nothing-special music was annoying. I'll likely try it again because their has lots of appealing offerings and hope for the best.

    My wife's soup was briney/salty with soggy bread on top. My prime rib sandwich tasted like two days old meat. Salad was fine. Very disappointed as it was a 30 Th. anniversary dinner. NOT looking for a freebe,,,,, just being honest. KM

    Austin's Grill has an extensive menu. All the guests in our party enjoyed the food they ordered. The manager was seen busily clearing tables and generally helping where needed. The noise was a little high, but it would have helped if we had been able to sit in a booth, but someone in our party could not sit in a booth. The service was excellent. Can't wait to return!

    My teenage son and I were fortunate to find Austin's by chance a year ago in November 2022. We are from the Detroit suburbs, so when we planned our next trip to Mentor for this November, we made a reservation right away. We were just barely rolled into the parking lot before closing time on a Friday night, but we made it and it was everything we hoped it would be. The most friendly and efficient service. Great food. The ribeye cooked just as ordered medium-rare. The orange roughy with crabmeat stuffing was excellent. The chocolate cake amazing. It will probably be another year before we return, but will be the first place we go when we roll into town.

    Have eaten here before but this time I was really disappointed in the quality of the strip steak. The steak was tough, no way was it a Prime cut of beef. Everything else was fine with the meal. Prices are high for what you are getting, I could have gone to a Longhorn and had a better meal for 20% less than what I paid at Austins.

    Food was great….the BEST Caesar salad I’ve ever tasted. Bookers bourbon was FABULOUS as was the Lina wine. Dinner for two was almost $300 with drinks, and desserts & extra side dishes so when we asked to buy the bourbon glass we were using as an Anniversary momento & the manager wouldn’t sell it to us, that was disappointing. Manager said people keep stealing their glasses (not sure why he wouldn’t sell it to us since we actually asked but whatever). Found the glasses online & we will just give the money to someone else. I think this memory will stick with me longer then the food/drink memory about this establishment. 🤷‍♀️

    From online info, I thought this was a nicer place. It is more like a sports bar. Our server was excellent albeit it took a long time for food. Our booth for 5 was very nice. I ordered baked stuffed shrimp. It was not good. It was like average shrimp with stove top stuffing on it. The rice had a strange aroma and taste. Best thing was the broccoli. Accommodations for our own cake was nice. Food is severely overpriced for the quality. I might go back for a lunch and/or drinks.

    Ordered 2 meals - fillet and ribs. The food was tasty. The sides were very good (baked potatoes, broccoli, asparagus) the meat was good but not particularly hot. Waiter was very pleasant, coming to check on us periodically.
