It all started with the staff. We showed up 15 minutes early and were seated within minutes. The waiter was absolutely amazing, guiding us through the exquisite menu and the incredible flavor combinations. We went with pecan encrusted fried chicken, cornbread with a goat cheese and thyme butter, and jambalaya, all of which were fantastic! I can’t recommend this place enough, the prices were definitely reasonable, if not low for the quality of service and food, the staff were exceedingly polite, and the food was just perfection.
Acme is one of the best deals around. Brunch is GREAT and reasonable with some interesting choices.
Never disappoints.. Favorite brunch spot!
Food and service always excellent.
Creative menu with lots of healthy options.
Everything we had from drinks to appsbto entrees to desserts were excellent - service was fantastic too
Alright. Pretty expensive for what you get.
We went here for a Valentine's day date. I made sure to make a reservation a few weeks before so that we would have a spot. Upon arrival they greeted us and made us wait about a few minutes which wasn't bad at all considering it was a holiday. They then seated us and took our order. The server was very helpful and let us taste a wine we were interested in. We ordered two drinks I had the winter ration and my girlfriend had a white wine. Both were very good. We also ordered the calamari salad as an appetizer which had an awesome dressing and a very different but enjoyable taste. The portion of calamari was decent so I would say it was worth the $10 it cost. Then we ordered our entrees, I had the pecan crusted fried chicken ($23) and my girlfriend had the crab cakes ($26). They were both excellent choices. The mashed potatoes were amazing as well as the chicken. The crab cakes were also very good especially the sauce they used to drizzle on top of them. The portions were the right size and we ended up taking about a third of the fried chicken home. Overall the experience was worth it although for fine dining I think it may have been slightly more expensive than other places in the triangle. It's a great place that everyone should try at least once. I have yet to try their brunch and plan on coming back sometime soon.
Awesome food. Great atmosphere. Did I say awesome food?
We had a very enjoyable brunch. The service was nicely attentive without being on top of us. The salmon hand cake was delicious as was the omelet. We shared both which was a great way to do brunch. We topped it all off with a pair of Bloody Marys which were also quite good.
Well done Acme!
Have been to ACME many times and greatly enjoyed it each time.
I was surprised that the food was not excellent. It was good. Bordering on very good. The entree portions were on the small side - almost like stingy. It made me wonder if they were running out that night. Why would you be chintzy on gumbo? A steak might be different...... I like the atmosphere and especially since our foursome scored a table where it was not so loud. Otherwise a very loud and close together kind of place. The service was fine, quite competent. A great neighborhood place. Really good. Just left you thinking, " it could be so much more......"
The menu is limited and overpriced but the food was good.
2 of our 3 dishes were cold. Good apps but the entrees were cold and not worth the money.
The Mardi Gras menu had a lot of good options and everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. Our waiter was very nice and knowledgeable, but service was a little slow. We were seated in the back room, so ambiance was not the best. Still, would be happy to return in the future.
Excellent! Great service, great wine options. Good food!!
Great restaurant with great food. Loved the outside sitting area.
Waiter was friendly, looked in on us often, great service
Food and service excellent as always. First Sunday brunch experience, will definitely return. Never rushed and staff was helpful and friendly.
Brunch on Sunday. Had reservation for 1:00PM and were seated after only 5 minute wait. Although very busy, service was very good and fast. We all had breakfast items and everything was prepared perfectly. Poached eggs were hot with runny yolks; grits were creamy, not too runny and not too dry. Everyone was delighted with their entree. I would highly recommend!
Had brunch at ACME for the first time and the food and service were excellent. The ACME breakfast was just right. The potatoes are perfectly cooked and seasoned. The biscuits are large and fabulous - even when enjoyed the next day. It was unnecessarily chilly in the restaurant with all the fans on despite a cold day.
Our go-to place for Sunday brunch. Acme never disappoints! Orange County Special, Crab Cakes, and Country Breakfast plus Cinnamon Roll. Can't go wrong at Acme.
The brunch meal was absolutely delicious. I had heard about Acme’s brunch and it lived up to expectations. The service was fine but not over the top.
My favorite restaurant in the area. Come here every time I'm in town and it never disappoints.
Fun, delicious dinner. Nice cocktails.
The food was great, the service was awesome and we had a fantastic time. I am from Pittsburgh, PA and will definitely return!
A very handsome room and friendly atmosphere await at Acme, reported as top rated by the 2017 "best of" local magazine readers. It lived up to that reputation for our visit. We tried some of the adventurous specials, and were delighted with every plate. Service was both professional and friendly. The room is small and tables close together, but not uncomfortably so. We are pleased to recommend Acme!
The usual experience at ACME, which is to say great local sourced food, friendly wait staff and unique menu items. Also to say that parking was dicey and large open rooms were noisy. Still ... will be back!
We had a great experience perv usual. Best brunch in Chapel Hill!!
Crab cakes were luke warm. Short rib special was not very impressive, especially for the price. Corn bread was very crumbly and dry, not as good as it usually is. Ive had some great dining experiences here, but this visit was rather sub par.
