Ingredients are carefully selected and sourced, then skillfully prepared by the kitchen. Wine list is not extensive, but very high quality and reasonably priced. Server was skilled and very knowledgeable. Great experience!

I've wanted to come here since our first visit to Auburn 2 years ago and was so happy to finally remember in time to make a reservation. It was worth the wait. Beautiful spot, close to campus, and admirable farm to table. From our starter board to dessert, everything was great.

The food was AMAZING as always and appropriately proportions. Loved the specials of crawfish Mac and cheese and the oysters. Seasonal dessert with the strawberries was on point and every crumb was eaten. We will be back soon.

Had read so much about this restaurant so when we came to Auburn to take granddaughter and boy friend to lunch this seemed to be the perfect selection. Ordered fried green tomatoes to share, to mushy, so much so that breading stuck to plate and you had to scrub plate to get off. Boys had hamburgers which were good but fries were cold and limp. I had fried chicken, just all right but not much flavor. Really disappointed 😔

Out of town guest from San Francisco. He LOVED it! And he is spoiled by incredible dining opportunities often in San Francisco. Acre did not disappoint! The duck dish was probably his favorite thing. I wish I could remember the exact phrase he used when he tasted it...spectacularly creative, maybe...something like that. Thank y’all for a great evening!

Excellent service combined with innovative, well prepared, and delicious food is a very tough combination to beat. Will be back... multiple times. I highly recommend the bone marrow and my friend said the tenderloin was the best steak he has ever tasted!

We were seated next to a table with 25 young ladies, to say it was loud would be an understatement ... we should have asked to be moved.

Food was unremarkable. Fried chicken was dry and without much seasoning in batter. Green beans were excellent. Potatoes fine but ordinary. Excellent service and always a nice venue but I was disappointed in Sunday brunch menu. Usually like the food much more here.

Great food, as always, although apparently the kitchen was behind, so our food took around an hour to arrive after ordering. That was a little bit of a challenge with hungry kids. Our waiter was attentive, and checked on us often. Something comp'ed for our inconvenience might have been nice. The duck breast, ribeye, and shrimp and grits were all fantastic, and our children loved the burger and grilled cheese on the kid's menu.

The waitstaff was top notch and the drinks were great. The ONLY complaint we had about the food was the crust on the lemon tart we had for dessert was too thick, however, the bread pudding we had was the best dessert we have ever experienced. Our entrees we’re great (beef tender loin and ribeye) and the appetizers were unique and delicious (goat cheese guacamole and chicken fried bacon). It was my wife’s birthday too and at least 3 people wished her a happy birthday. They also lit a candle for her dessert and comp’d her bread pudding.

Seriously, I would make the 45 minute trip to acre just for that bread pudding again.

So good that we’ve made brunch reservations for our return trip through Auburn! Last, we split the fried okra and I had the salmon. Salmon’s glaze was a little too sweet for me but requested some lemon which our server immediately brought and was then delicious. My friend had a salad and requested strawberries be added- first of the season. Request was immediately granted! I can imagine Acre gets really busy but we lucked out as the university was on spring break. Looking forward to tomorrow’s meal.

Unfortunately there were two private events (one very large baseball team) the night we were there and what should have been a lovely evening in a really cute restaurant turned out to be a lot of waiting. Food was good and ambiance was cute from what I could see.

Best restaurant in Auburn, AL! I eat here very often, and the food is always fantastic; the chef(s) are truly talented. Acre also has a grade-A beer, wine, and spirits selection. The hostesses, bartenders, and servers are all great. Whether you’re a foodie, or just looking to have a great meal, you’ll absolutely love this place!
