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

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!

I go to Austin's frequently and have never had a bad experience. The staff is friendly and attentive. The prices are reasonable. I love the daily food specials. The wings are quite yummy! Great for family or business meals!

In town for a track and field state meet, and went here with friends for dinner. We all had different choices, but the food was great! I had a dozen oysters, and they were as fresh as I have ever had! Everyone else enjoyed their selections as well. Albany isn't known for its fabulous food choices, so I was definitely... More

Our server was quite polite and attentive, our drinks and apetizers arrived promptly... the wait for the food however was rediculous and when It did finally arrive my 20 dollar grilled shrimp plate was cold and over cooked. The manager did come to apologise and took the entree off, but all the food was cold, I am just the one... More

Out drinks were brought out promptly, and we ordered. Have you ever been in the mood for a really good steak, but kina held your breath, cause you've never eaten here? Well, sit... More

Super cute place, very friendly staff, and excellent fish tacos. The décor is really cute, the outside patio is covered, and the service is excellent!
