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,...

6 of us ate lunch at Austin's today, arriving about 1 PM. We didn't leave until almost 2:30. Part of the problem was that one member of our party ordered Mediterranean Chicken, which had a 30 minute prep time. If that had been listed on the menu or if our server had mentioned it, something quicker would have been substituted.... More

This process does take a bit longer but the result is how explained it, Im glad after the wait you... More

I want to give a shout out to Austin's because my husband and I go there quite a bit and have never been disappointed. We love their outdoor patio as well as the atmosphere inside of the restaurant. We have enjoyed everything we sampled on their menu over the years and the new ones we continue to sample each time... More

Ask waiter and he said skirt steak was the tenderest. NOT. Tough, tough, tough. Spicy chicken soup was good. Baked potato was a baked potato. No bread served. Waiter asked how the steak was....I told him....did not see him again until the check came. Menu variety should have told me....little bit if everything. Not again.
