I was there with a party of 12. The waitress could not get our order correct and we had to correct her over and over again. Then she brought us drinks we did not order when we refused them the manager came over and was very rude telling us we needed to pay for the drinks. We tried to explain... More

We were celebrating with family and arrived even prior to the restaurant opening this Friday morning. Since the weather was comfy we set outside under their expansive canopy. Trying to please six adults and two kids is a challenge. The wait staff was good and our meals were good. My biggest disappointment is this they need to do some really... More

Very casual atmosphere, but the food was good. I had the crab cake dinner and was pleased, service was excellent!

The work group and I would go here on Tuesday for their $7 a dozen oyster night and enjoy a few cocktails. The staff was always very friendly and joked around with us at the bar. Stop in and suck down a few raw ones.

We have eaten here on a couple of occasions now and the service has been consistently slow and orders have been screwed up on multiple occasions as well. I have spoken to numerous friends and they have had the same experience, which is why I'm surprised none of the other reviews here have mentioned poor service. The food is fair... More

If they are busy, plan to wait a WHILE for your food. The food is good, and the service is usually decent unless they are busy. The prices are not too bad for a nice restaurant in Albany. Our last visit they brought out our tables food in different intervals. Some people were almost done eating when the last person's... More

I've visited several times, and on my latest 4 day trip, I ate here 3 times. I've had most everything on the menu: oysters (raw/baked, plain/flavored), wings, burgers, steak, all appetizers and everything has been good. The staff is typically very good, and the manager has more than once stopped at my table to ensure everything is okay. Good food,... More

Came in on a Sunday evening, the crowd was not large, but the service was excellent.. Servers were very focused on their clients and that is special. Got a salad and wings - both were very good. Give it a try, beats the normal places.

We love to go to the local restaurants best. When Austin's opened up, it became an immediate favorite. When they moved to their new location and added ambience to great food, it was a total winner. Great burgers! Great oysters! Great BBQ! And, my favorite, the Cobb salad with pulled chicken on it. Lip smacking. Austin's tops it off with... More

I wanted to write another review after going there a few more times, we have a higher opinion. Seafood is very good here. Good service. Atmosphere is fair. This is becoming one of our regular places.
