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!

We showed up with a party of 12 (including 4 kids and 2 toddlers) and were treated to a feast. From oysters to chicken to excellent BBQ, it was all terrific. Our server was charming, knowledgeable, and very receptive to the little ones. The only negative I can think of is that we don't live in the area...

Impressive place. I did not expect to find this in Albany. I sat at the bar and ordered pulled pork and smoked chicken. Came with a choice of two sides (there were many to choose from). Complete with three house-made BBQ sauces. Delicious. The portion was huge. I couldn't finish it. It was Thursday and the place was packed. Obviously... More

Sandwiches that leave you feeling stuffed. My sister an I usually splint a sandwich and some buffalo blue cheese chips. Great waitstaff.

I eat at Austin's fairly often. Love the BBQ (pulled chicken and pork are my favorites) and the sides are really good, too (yummy sweet potato fries). The staff is great and the owner drops by to chat regularly. When there is live music, that's fun, too. One of my favorites!

Delicious and great atmosphere!!!! Best grilled shrimp north of Panama City Beach! Crowded but no long wait. Lots of choices on the menu.
