Austin's was established in 1987 and we feel privileged to be well into our third decade of serving our community. We strive to offer consistently great service and food in a welcoming environment and, with 16 hi-def flat screens, there's no better place to watch the game.

Good Food for a Good Price

We live in the neighbourhood and if we ever decide to eat out then this is the place we usually end up at. I'm a good cook myself so we don't go our very often but when we do we are quite fussy and a lot of places that we try new from time to time just don't come up... read more

This place is nice, well priced and has a few good things on the menu but every time we go, they drop the ball -- food's been served burned; entrees on the menu are never available (take the pork adobo off the menu), pizza is sub-par, raw and gooey under the toppings. The most irksome is the service -- waitresses... More

We were looking for a breakfast/lunch place close to our hotel and we lucked out on this place. We had lunch the first time around with my husband having a delicious hamburger and I having a wonton/noodle soup with fresh veggies. We were pleasantly surprised and the young lady serving us was charming and helpful. We came back the very... More

this is a smelly, packed strip-mall bar filled with teenagers and old, lewd "men". We went in for dinner and drinks and were appalled to find ourselves in a rowdy, filthy pub. The food DID NOT make up for the atmosphere, not only was our waitress more concerned with playing pool and doing shots with other customers, when I told... More

This is a Super Pub. The food selection is varied and is always great. The steak sandwich is one of the best deals around for both quality and price. Service has always been very good.

Went for wine Wednesdays, cheap bottles of wine, and when it came to the bill the waitress refused to honour advertised pricing. She had been useless the whole night but really was insulting when she insisted we pay full price on her advertised feature night. Won't be back. What a joke, won't actually stick to their advertised pricing. Lmao.

They make the best Caesars and we are never disappointed with the food. We eat there at least 2-4 times a month.

We have been going to this restaurant for a few years but never thought to do a review on it. Austin's has been transformed from a bar stuck in the 70's to an amazing modern atmosphere. The service is always great & there isn't one bad thing on the menu. I recently had the ginger-soy chicken. It was so yummy!... More

Definitely a neighbourhood bar, but the food is a notch above what I would expect. They make more things from homemade than I expected and are open very very late. Very handy at 1AM and I want a $6 steak sandwich. Service is a bit variable but for the price it works well. Reasonable tap selection too.
