I ordered the Corona cod with tater tots and cream of mushroom soup. Fried food was probably not a good choice for delivery because it became a little soggy before arriving. The tarter sauce was really good but the big surprise was the cream of...More

Questions & Answers
Wow! Either you (noemi22ramirez) have never worked in a restaurant before or are just plain rude. You should show up on time and not make excuses for why your party cannot make it at the proper time. I'm sorry your friend was in an accident but that is not the waitresses' fault and you made it her problem. There is no excuse...you are in the wrong. You are not owed or entitled to anything other than your reservation at that set time and you basically robbed a waitress from getting the chance to make money off another table with your narcissistic behavior. Honestly, they should have never have sat you and your group is the reason that you give nice, normal people who dine in groups a bad name. One of you should have made better arrangements for your friend in need instead of sitting on your behinds eating appetizers. I'm in the process of searching restaurants in this area and if I make it to Austin's I hope I get the opportunity to eat there. Sounds like this waitress could use a good table with manners and knows how to tip properly. Shame on you! Someday you might have a relative that waits tables and will be frustrated by serving a table like you and your friends. Maybe it will hit home then how awful and close-minded you are. Hopefully your gift exchange went well. The restaurant isn't your living room. Probably a bunch of useless crap was given and received while you passed judgment on someone trying to make a living. If you are one of those people who goes to church but then acts rude, I'd plan a visit with your pastor/priest/whomever. You are not a good person and obviously have too much time on your hands.

Austin's is a great place. The bad behavior is very unusual. We have not experienced that during any of our visits.
