Food was great! Ambience was perfect for a casual anniversary dinner. Menu is pretty pricey but I was happy with our food.
Only downside was where we were sat was extremely loud. We will return though!

Great experience! My wife and I went for our anniversary. We shared fried green tomatoes for an appetizer. I had the ribeye and my wife had beef tenderloin. I had apple pie and my wife ate the peanut butter pie for dessert. The food was amazing. The service was prompt and courteous. Everything is farm fresh. There is free Valet parking so no need in struggling for a parking spot.

My brother, cousin and I are all Auburn graduates and as a family tradition we come to A Day. After we tried the Acre the first time, we always make reservations to add that to our family tradition every year
The place is lovely, the food is delicious, and always the entire staff is top notch. We enjoy it so much

We had a difficult time deciding what to order because we wanted so many items on the menu. I guess that will get us back to Auburn sooner to be able to do that. We enjoyed everything about this place. The only things I feel need improving is more parking and a bigger facility to serve more people (and I mean that as a compliment!) So glad we had a reservation!

We were first seated in the enclosed patio, but the noise level was uncomfortably high - no sound-absorbing surfaces. We were moved to the small elevated room to the right of the entrance, which was so cold they were offering blankets to everyone seated in there. The pork schnitzel was outstanding and service was great.

The food was fresh and prepared in an excellent manner. The snapper was light and fresh and the sauce was an outstanding compliment. I would also recommend the simple tomato soup and chicken fried bacon.

Amazing food and outstanding service are just two of the many things we love about Acre! Their Seasonal menu is always full of unexpected delicious surprises and yet you can always count on finding a few familiar favorites! So make a reservation and get ready to enjoy a fantastic dining experience!

Great Sunday brunch. We had Steak and Eggs and Chicken and Waffles, then ended the meal with a piece of the peanut butter pie. The brisket was “melt in your mouth” tender, and the entire meal was excellent!

The only negative of our experience was Final Four officiating related. Haha
Our server was exceptional, our entrees were exceptional and the whole staff was so sweetly accommodating.
Post Script...
Don't be afraid of the quail appetizer. It is spectacular!
Thanks to everyone at Acre for making our anniversary special.

This restaurant is usually wonderful, but unfortunately on this evening, it had turned into a sports bar. I was seated in the main dining room, and the noise from the bar made conversation at my table completely impossible. The constant cheering, whistling, applauding, and whooping ruined my entire meal. No amount of delicious food can make up for the fact that the ambiance was appalling. My ears were ringing after I went home.

If there was noise that day, it was my group’s fault. The food was outstanding! You must have peanut butter pie for dessert. The only thing I could possibly complain about was that I ordered some pimento cheese for an appetizer, and didn’t get it. We ordered several, and I totally forgot about it until time to go so as much my fault for not asking.

I was disappointed in the options for entrees. Wish there had been maybe a chicken, non-fish seafood or pasta option. I got the ribeye and it was good. My friend got salmon and said it was way too salty. We didnt complain because i am not a complainer. I have eaten at many upscale restaurants and i thought the prices were high, especially the glasses of wine and cocktails. I enjoyed our evening but probably wont be back any time soon.
