The setting is like an outdated diner, inside though the exterior will fool you. The menu needs re-writing (saying pasta is tossed in "garlic oil". Really? The service was just average. The whipped garlic potatoes tasted like instant. The cole slaw had too much mayonnaise. The crabcakes were very good and the pasta with crab (dinner size) had a very... More

This restaurant had great reviews on TripAdvisor and was close to our hotel. The reviews were definitely spot on. My Husband ordered the Prime Rib and I ordered the Filet, both just perfectly done as were the sides. The restaurant has the perfect upscale Steakhouse vibe and much quieter than the chain steakhouses. It was quite crowded early on Friday... More

Great food, fast service. The French dip was wonderful and the Caesar salad was very good. The only complaint was that this restaurant is very dark and not too welcoming.

KatieDD, thanks for the very nice review. So glad to hear that you loved everything. I know it can seem very dark once you walk through our doors but it should have lightened up once your eyes adjusted. Some people do ask to sit up against the windows to allow some more light so don't hesitate to do that next... More

I never liked ribs from anywhere, I've tried them over the years and gave up until I tried Austins.!! This is now the only place I will order ribs from. PERIOD! I've even written to Guy Fieri about stopping by when he was at the NASCAR race in Poconos last season. Besides the ribs I've never disliked anything I've ordered... More

Always a pleasure dining at Austin's. The absolute best appetizer I have had in a long time is their "twisted shrimp." A must try when dining there. The quanity and quality of the food is excellent. Server was outstanding.
