The food is delicious as well as a nice value. Large portions so you never leave feeling deprived. Also, good desserts. The servers are very attentive and the drinks are not overpriced. Lots of local people so very friendly!

I've been going to Austins for years. The owners are consistently improving the customer experience, the ambiance has continually been upgraded, and the menu is vast and overall very good. Whether you are taking the kids out to the Kids Eat Free night or going with the guys after a softball game, Austins is a great host!

This place is awesome for family dinners, or just a hang out place with friends. They have a nice large menu, so anybody can find something for themselves. Prices are very reasonable and portions are large. At least twice a year some one from our family has their birthdays here.

A group of us wanted a late breakfast on a Sunday -- we tried a local place known for pancakes, but the line was practically out the door. No Thanks. We went to Austins, prepared to do lunch instead, and there was a breakfast menu!!! I had a wonderful omelet, and the 9 grain bread was perfect. Others at the... More

I've enjoyed all my visits to Austin's either with the kids/family or to catch up with friends. Solid menu with lots of choices. Like the atmosphere when I want to escape the daily grind. Really hoping to catch a band there soon as I have heard good things about venue from friends. I've only had BBQ, sandwiches and such there... More

Took my wife and my parents to Austin's for dinner. I've never been there before for food and boy was I pleasantly surprised. Everything was very good - food and service. Give them a try, I bet you'll enjoy the experience.

I visit Austin's on occasion each time I travel to Chicago city for business, and it is worth the extra few minutes driving to Libertyville from downtown. Their food is phenominal, the burgers are more than filling, most recent visit treated myself to a steak for lunch, asked for medium/well done and honestly could've used a butterknife to cut it,...
