I visited Austin a few times and I can say it is OK. It maybe that I expected more from the food but really cannot complain. I will say I am not impressed by pub grub.

Went to Austin's due to the rating. Ribs got thumbs up, brisket wrap was good but needed hot sauce. Salad had some stale lettuce, fries seemed to be store bought krinkle style. Service was excellent.

I've been going to Austins for years. The owners are consistently improving the customer experience, the ambiance has continually been upgraded, and the menu is vast and overall very good. Whether you are taking the kids out to the Kids Eat Free night or going with the guys after a softball game, Austins is a great host!

This place is awesome for family dinners, or just a hang out place with friends. They have a nice large menu, so anybody can find something for themselves. Prices are very reasonable and portions are large. At least twice a year some one from our family has their birthdays here.
