We dined at Acre this past Sunday for brunch. We were seated promptly and had a beautiful table in one of the little areas that had 4-5 tables with a window view. Great service and the food was delicious. I had a decadent grilled cheese with tomato soup and my husband had the brisket and eggs. Everything was delicious and we will definitely return for brunch in the near future.

Enjoyed our meal. I had fried green tomatoes that were perfectly fried. And then I had shrimp and grits. Very good! Recommend ordering the bread - $6 seems to be a little high for the bread, but it is very good. Also recommend the bread pudding for dessert. Service was very prompt and friendly. The food came out of the kitchen nicely timed. The atmosphere is light and airy. My only complaint is the piped in music Although it wasn't awfully loud, it did distract. We will eat there again.

Excellent service; food was at typical very-high standard; 1st time on enclosed patio where noise level was pretty high making it difficult to clearly hear our conversation. Recommend considering an investment into advanced acoustics reduction techniques - the AU Jules Collins Smith museum recently did this with amazing results.

My boyfriend and I chose Acre for date night while I was in town for the week. Everything was outstanding from the drinks, the service, and definitely the food! I was very excited to get some pimento cheese while in the south, and it didn't disappoint. We also got the bistro steak, and the shrimp and grits - both full of flavor I would recommend to anybody! Service was also fantastic thanks to Winter!

Excellent location near downtown Auburn. Service was great and attentive. Food was very good, especially the pimento cheese and chicken fried bacon appetizers. As well as the chicken fried chicken and especially the shrimp and grits with s special twist, it was covered in tomato gravy! Our new go to on the Plains!

Acre never disappoints! The food, service, and atmosphere are amazing! If they are in season you must try the Sweet Corn Donuts, the Butchers Block, 1/2 lb Ribeye, Beef Tartare (my father in-law who has traveled the world tons of times says it’s the best he’s ever had), and just about everything else on the menu is worth a try! We look forward to going here every chance we get!

Ate here with my parents and my three-year-old son on New Year's Eve. The service was excellent and they were very accommodating of my little guy. Grouper and duck were delicious. Tenderloin was a little small for the price but overall a great experience! Will be back!

We went for my husband's birthday and had a wonderful experience. It's farm to table and laid back bit still quite an exquisite food experience. Try their version of an old fashioned too- I love them and this was one of the best ones I've ever had! 10/10 WILL be eating there again!

We had brunch. The food was very good but the service was painfully slow. They initially seated us in a hallway by the server stand “to save room” even though we were early and restaurant was almost empty. I had heard many raves about this restaurant, but the overall experience didn’t live up to the hype.

We have eaten at Acre several times - at lunch and at dinner. I’m sure the brunch is wonderful, but we haven’t tried it yet. We are new to the Auburn area and consider ourselves fortunate to have a restaurant of this quality in our small town. We always bring our guests there to eat. The service is excellent and the servers are friendly. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable. The food is simply perfect.

First, let me say how much my family loves Acre. We have always had amazing experiences there. With that said, I visited Acre with a friend who had never ate there before. We ordered the okra and fried green tomatoes as appetizers, my favorites there, and were very disappointed. Both seemed really ‘hard’ and undercooked. They are normally amazing. She had the steak, fingerling potatoes, green beans and I had the shrimp, grits with broccolini and cheese. The shrimp was not fresh...the only way I can describe it was “fishy” tasting. I ended up not eating them. I was really surprised...the shrimp and grits are normally my favorite lunch dish there. Our waiter was very attentive though and the ambience was lovely.
