The young lady who took our order was beyond fantastic!!!And of course the food is always on point at this place !!We love it there !!!!And the restaurant itself is so charming !!Five star rating for sure.I do suggest that you check the days you come because this place is popular and parking can be tough if they are busy!!!!I also recommend reservations but make a quick call and ask them for their busy times !!!

A very nice rainy day birthday lunch. Food was delicious. The shared birthday cake (Butter Up Cake) was delicious and came with a lighted candle. Fun!

The food and wait staff was outstanding. The kitchen was inordinately slow. The dining room was not crowded but the kitchen took so long on a couple of salads Jake, our server, was getting imbarressed.

We went to Acre on the recommendation of several friends and we were not disappointed! It was our anniversary and the atmosphere was perfect. Our sever was Claire and she was wonderful! I had the fried green tomatoes topped with lump crap meat and it was a great way to start the dinner. I ordered the ribeye but with the filet sides and it delicious, tender, and was cooked to perfection. My wife had the salmon and it too was just perfect. For dessert I had the cake topped with butterscotch and caramel and my wife had the GF chocolate brownie topped with home churned salted butter ice cream. Both left us wanting more but the portions were so generous that it would have been impossible to eat another bite! Overall I give this place an A+ and 5 stars. We've already recommended it to several of our friends plan to make another trip back soon! Dining at Acre was a great way to celebrate such a special day!

Have now been three times and have been seated in the same seats by the door all three times. Our waitress Anna was lovely and attentive but was too pushy. We were there to have a full evening and she had our food out to us in 5 min. Our reservation was at 6 and our check was delivered at 6:40. The menu is slightly overpriced-our food was good but the overall experience is not worth $25-$30 per entree when you heard your guests in and out in 45 minutes.

It was really good apart from one scary incident. One of the deserts (I think butter me up) had all this stuff listed in it on the menu but said nothing about nuts. My girlfriend is extremely allergic to nuts. When it got out she almost had a bite until she noticed something that looked like nuts so we asked the waiter and he didn't know. He went back to the kitchen and it did so maybe mention it on the menu so no one dies because what you did was very illegal. We got another desert for free. The snapper was delicious.

Really delicious food. Our waitress wasn’t so good. We felt abandoned halfway through our meal. We were in town for our son’s first birthday away from home. He wanted 2 sides of fries for his order, and our waitress wouldn’t do it. She’s like “the sides are green beans and a sweet potato”. He loved his ribeye, but she gave him the sweet potato anyway. Really?

Any time I am in Auburn I try to make it to Acre for Lunch or Dinner. I always end up getting the Steak (with mashed potatoes) and start with either the Pimento Cheese or Brussel Sprouts. Can't go wrong with any of their Fish/Steak options though.

A little disappointed in this trip to acre - our favorite restaurant in AU. First off I didn’t think the menu had enough variety for lunch. My salmon salad had very few things in it besides lettuce. The salmon had no flavor. The fried chicken was good. 2 catfish entrees were only soso. The highlight of the meal was the dessert board. It was unbelievable!! Great waiter also. Hope the chef picks it back up - I’d hate for Acre to slip

As always the food was amazing!! The charcuterie plate was top notch and the duck breast was cooked to perfection. I'd like to see a few more craft cocktails using bourbon or whiskey on the drink menu, but if that's my only complaint, they are doing just fine!! Can't wait to get back again.

This was our 5th time to visit Acre.
Our reservation was for 3:00 PM, right in between lunch and dinner. Our table menus were for the lunch options; but when asked, our waiter brought us the dinner menu and said all items listed on both menus would be available to us!
The service we received from our waiter was far above would normally be expected and his demeaner was open and genuinely friendly. And the food - absolutely wonderful!
