I was one of the people who wrote a glowing review of Austins. Now I am taking back what I said. Several months ago, I was at Austins and had to deal with a bunch of 20-something drunk young men who were calling me fat and old. The barmaids did nothing. In the end, I tossed the one inch of...

Some of the staff members are kind of "Air Heads". I really like the food here though, serious compliments to the chefs! It is kind of an older person hangout though so not bad for a quiet night and some good food!

The food here is very good. The service can vary based on server and crowd. A nice atmosphere for appies and drinks. A long time neighbourhood bar recently renovated.

We got to the pub around 5:30pm. There were lots of people there but plenty or room. The servers were excellent. They were training and the new girl was great. The folks seated next to us are wonderful people and surprised us by buying our supper!!! The food was excellent! Steak and Lobster special was only $21.95!! Incredible. Highly recommend... More

Walked into this place on a Tuesday night and it was not busy at all. The server was standing at the bar talking to the bartender and playing with her phone. She looked at me and kept right on doing what she was doing for the next 7 minutes. After that, she called to the kitchen to a girl who... More

Was hesitant with some of the older reviews but I was impressed from the moment I walked in the door. My mother and I met for a weekday after work dinner and thought we would try somewhere new. We were not disappointed. Good location with ample parking. Very clean and the decor is inviting with nice colours and love the... More

Haven't been to Austins in ages but met a friend for lunch there last week. Super casual place with super casual service, they don't seem to go the extra mile for a good customer experience. Server was ok but not overly friendly or attentive. Door to kitchen was left open during our entire lunch so you had a crappy view... More

This place is nice, well priced and has a few good things on the menu but every time we go, they drop the ball -- food's been served burned; entrees on the menu are never available (take the pork adobo off the menu), pizza is sub-par, raw and gooey under the toppings. The most irksome is the service -- waitresses... More

We were looking for a breakfast/lunch place close to our hotel and we lucked out on this place. We had lunch the first time around with my husband having a delicious hamburger and I having a wonton/noodle soup with fresh veggies. We were pleasantly surprised and the young lady serving us was charming and helpful. We came back the very... More

this is a smelly, packed strip-mall bar filled with teenagers and old, lewd "men". We went in for dinner and drinks and were appalled to find ourselves in a rowdy, filthy pub. The food DID NOT make up for the atmosphere, not only was our waitress more concerned with playing pool and doing shots with other customers, when I told... More
