Very good food

My server was very friendly. I didn't know what to get. I ended up with the shrimp po boy and My husband had a Reuben. The food came fast. The restrooms were very clean.

Consistency is the watchword for Austins.Always get good food in a reasonable time at a reasonable price,and usually with the same wait staff. Like the dining location options: bar with TV,semiprivate niche tables,open area ,and outside patio.

We stopped here on our return road trip, on a nasty wet Sunday last November. The atmosphere wasn't all that great, and neither was the food. We all agreed it was only so-so, and overpriced for what it was. And the service was very slow, even though there were few people there when we arrived around 2 p.m. We should... More

My wife and I decided to give this place a try after riding by it multiple times, and I'm glad that we did...They have indoor and outdoor patio seating if you decided that you would rather sit outside and enjoy the live band...We had a awesome server and its a shame that I can't remember his name but he provided...

The Flatiron steak was outstanding. Mashed potatoes were great. Really liked the firegrilled veggies. Wife had a chopped steak with mushrooms and brown gravy. She really likes that too. And buffalo chips were great also. The pricing isn't bad in our opinion. The server was a young man named Chris who was really in top form. All in all....it's a... More

Austin's has always been overpriced in my opinion. I've never had anything here that is spectacular. Nice environment if the food options were better.

Get the build your own burger with goat cheese and bacon and ask for the Austin wing sauce on the side. Simply awesome! Ask to speak to Austin. He's a nice family man

This review is actually for Newman's Bar and Grill owned by same company. Trip Advisor does not list Newman's which has been around a while and like Austin's is one of the best places to eat in Albany GA. For some reason Trip Advisor does not allow me to add a new restaurant even though it is excellent. Arrived with... More

Had lunch here recently, attentive waiter, however did not suggest any items on the menu, simply asked for our order. Food seemed to take a long time, when we saw him bringing our order he veered off and set our plates on a table next to us that had just ordered. We were so disappointed. He realized him mistake immediately... More

We tried Austin's while traveling because of the good reviews here. Our experience was less than enjoyable. Starting with the fire grilled parmesan cheese oysters that were overly salty and tiny--they would definitely not be legal size in Florida. Then, the pulled pork was greasy and fatty. It was as though they scraped the bottom of the barrel to get... More
