Description: Austin's American Grill is the quintessential taste of Colorado. With two great Fort Collin's locations-one in the heart of Old Town and another on Harmony Road, we'll have you wondering why mom's food never tasted so good and when you can come back for more. Savory roasts and chicken cooked over an open flame in our front-of-the-house rotisserie. All-natural buffalo seasoned to perfection. Cornbread baked in iron skillets and drizzled with honey and butter. Signature cocktails sweetened with fresh-squeezed fruit juice. Plus, our decadent desserts are made fresh daily, giving you an excuse to stop in for a slice that reminds you of home. So grab a friend and make plans to meet at the red umbrellas. There's a reason Austin's is one of Northern Colorado's favorite destinations.

They make a big deal of the cocktail menu and fresh ingredients, but the top shelf margarita I had was so-so at best, and had a slightly odd flavor to the sour mix. No fresh lime juice here. Not recommended. The BBQ salmon was well prepared, served quickly and hot, and the sauce had a nice deep flavor. They thin sliced the zucchini and squash, which caused the center seed sections to fall out, so they were more like squash donuts - they would be better chunky cut so they would keep some body. I'd probably eat here again, but judged it just average. If you sit outside there is only a few poor lights to see the menu by - nice atmosphere but not after dark.

Old hotel atmosphere and the food has consistently been good. The menu is typical american, burgers, fries but also pasta and chicken items.

If you are an American who appreciates some tasty American food this is where you want to be. The Bison burger is probably my favorite, or the grilled meatloaf. The chefs at this place are top notch.

I eat here often when I'm in Fort Collins and love the menu and the very affordable pricing. Highly recommended.

Upper middle class Easterner, expecting less than i might find in Coastal city. Nice.
This was one of a number of places suggested at the Colo State visitors' center. Client personnel said "Go there." Nice town with a lot of places that I didn't get to on an overnight visit.
Sat outside on a beautiful night on a post business setting. An excellent pork tenderloin with a nice spicy-tangy sauce, sauteed veggies, and garlic mash preceded by a very nice spinach artichoke dip, almost as good as my wife's. I followed it with a lovely key lime pie. Others' meals ranged from a burger, to a steak.
Cheerful service and my only complaint was slow drink service.
