Started coming to Albany on a regular basis in August. Asked a few people for some recommendations around town and Austin's has quickly become my "go to" place. The first time I visited the place we sat in the bar area because we just wanted to have some oysters and a beer/cocktail. My friend suggested the Firegrill oysters and their... More

Food was good. Its been better there but it was still pretty good. The jury is still out on the fried cheese grits though. Needed more cheese. Could barely taste it. Service was subpar today. Seemed to me the server was distracted by something or someone. It took so long for us to get condiments that a member of our... More

I had the shrimp and lobster fettuccine alfredo and it was great. A little spicy for my taste but I didn't let it go to waste. Our waitress was about to pop but she was awesome.

We dropped in early yesterday for dinner. The James was our server and he was good. The drinks came quickly. The Fried Pickles are a must try. I ordered the Gumbo and it was spicy and wonderful. My wife had the Smothered Chicken and commented on just how good it was. This place is a must try if you are... More

Back to Albany for business and I always tend to stop at Austin's while in town....today was no exception. Late lunch and they did not disappoint me with their brisket panini and the home made mac & cheese. Definite comfort food! They're known for oysters and Wednesdays are Wing night. Staff is friendly and priced right for good food and... More

Been here twice and can't complain. The grouper dishes I had were amazing. A friend with me had the steak he also said was amazing. We went for oysters but they were out due to the flooding in Louisiana. But will definitely be back. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the service was great. Great food.

I've fallen in love with their oysters Rockefeller, that's usually why I go there and what I order, the drinks and atmosphere are usually pretty nice too.

Food was a bit pricey and service was slow and lackluster. Not busy for a Sun night so no waiting. 14 oz ribeye was cooked well and had wonderful flavor. Appetizers well proportioned. Stuffed baked potato was good but way over priced for what showed up, could have just been a side. Good but too pricey to return.

First time in Albany and wanted to try some local favorites. Ordered catfish fingers and fried shrimp. Yummy. Waitress was attentive though place was a little busy on a Monday evening. Wish the tables and floors and menu was a little cleaner. I don't like touching grease when things about what to order 😖

Good local place to eat. Good hamburgers, Bbq sandwich is very good. Oysters the last time we went were very good but have had not very good ones on the past depends on what they get fresh that week I guess. Good wings too!
