I usually order steak.....which is great....all of their steaks are great, even the cowboy steak, but you better have a big appetite for it. I love the artichoke appetizer, and also the avocado and crab. We're going again tonight. This is a place that you can't come to just once....you will be back....it's great all around!

Very Nice atmosphere with excellent menu selection. Austin's has Fresh local seafood with some great specials. Scallops, soft shell crabs and Steaks are entrees I have eaten here and they have been consistently good choices.

Two couples, celebrating Valentines Day. The service was terrible. We asked for bread four times. When she finally brought the bread it was a roll to be split among four of us. The Veal Piccatta was terrible, the pasta was overcooked. Our entrees were lukewarm. One of us asked to be served her oysters as the entree. It was served... More

We went for Valentine's dinner. Got there for a little before 5 when they opened as we did not have a reservation. They let us in a few minutes early to sit at the bar as they were still setting up the tables for dinner. Ordered drinks and before we finished them our table was ready. Our waiter was Anthony...

This popular Mr Ed's restaurant still has the great ambiance, but lacks the basics of providing good food and service. Our recent dinner with friends left everyone disappointed. We had two veal dishes - one was served cold, and had to be sent back to the kitchen for reheating. It was returned with extra gravy which did not solve the... More

The best Scallops I have had anywhere. They are large and wrapped in Applewood Bacon. I have also had the steaks there and the flavor is excellent.... More
