We had brunch at Waverly Local and were very pleased with the quality of the food and the professionalism of the wait staff. It is interesting to see the staff hustle to take care of the patrons’ needs and to support each other. Obviously, the seasoned staff has been well trained.
Incredible good and service.
Our server, Laney always provides excellent service!!!
The lighting is very poor at some tables and the seating is much to low for the tables. Makes you feel like a child. Service is amazing which makes up for it but very uncomfortable for dining.
Excellent food and service! Highly recommend the ranch pork, crabmeat bisque and of course the cheesecake!! Great local place. Quiet and well spaced out.
Food & service were spectacular. Best chop I’ve ever eaten, bar none.
My husband and I have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while. We finally got that opportunity last night and it did not disappoint. It was such a pleasant surprise to arrive and see a musician setting up to provide live music for the evening. The food was fantastic! The pimento cheese with the sourdough frybread was to die for and my entree had tomato pudding which was new to me, also very tasty! The cheesecake with the local Waverly Farms strawberry jam was scrumptious. Roger took great care of us. We live in Birmingham, Alabama, which has some phenomenal restaurants and The Waverly Local held its own. What a find! We will be back over and over again! If you haven’t made the trek to Waverly, it is time. You won’t regret it.
We love the Waverly Local and today was another great experience for Sunday Brunch. The musician playing outside was wonderful and set the mood for a great day with our family!
Great casual atmosphere with tasty food and drinks
The appetizers and main courses were excellent. The musician was just the right volume as well.
The food was great and our server was on point. She was able to answer all our questions without having to go ask the chef!! We will definitely go back.
Food was good. The service very good. The building is very good.
We had a great night. Food & drinks were delicious. We were happy to find a great place so close to home.
Overall: very good. Food could come out a little quicker. Food was very, very good! Some of the best mac & cheese I have ever had. Really good vibe in the restaurant. I will definitely be back.
Everything about this place is incredible ! We cannot wait to go back !
Off the beaten path but so fun and worth it! Great food and entertainment on special nights.
When we arrived our table was ready with water and place settings already in place. The service was excellent and the food outstanding. Our party of four had 3 different entrees. Everyone raved about their food. Cannot wait to return.
We were beyond happy with our two dinners - delicious rib eye and black grouper, with savory sides. The service is attentive and the setting is unique. Can’t wait for the next visit.
Amazing atmosphere. Amazing food. Amazing staff.
This visit was for an anniversary. But it was just as good as every time we have ever been. We love it!
The food and service was excellent!! We are from Auburn and this is our third time coming here, we will definitely continue to dine here.
The food was good. The waiter was inattentive. We sat for a very long time between his visits to the table to check on us. The last time I was there the female waiter was very friendly and attentive. She told us about the food, the restaurant and the cook. It made me want to come back.
Great food as always. Service was excellent. Brunch music was on time.
Our friends met for brunch. The food was amazing!
Went there for Sunday Brunch. Good Brunch menu. We arrived early and were seated at the bar until out table was ready. Prices were what we expected, actually better. Service was good. We were checked on during our entire meal many times. Live music added to the ambiance with a piano player. Food was more than we could eat, had to get a to go box. Looking forward to going back for dinner. This was our first visit and we feel we've been missing out by not going sooner. Check this place out but make a reservation.
We always enjoy Waverly Local
Such and awesome place to enjoy a night out! Food is always great and service is top notch!
Food is always great. The staff if very friendly. We will definitely continue to eat here.
Always great food and service !
Our first time there...even though we live 15 minutes away! The food was delicious? The waitstaff were pleasant and helpful and making reservations was easy too.
Very Nice experience from beginning to end! Thank you
The grouper dish was fantastic! Our server, Laynie always provides exceptional service!!!
Fantastic meal and great live music. Will be back soon.
Excellent food and good service. The only negative was the entertainment. It was entirely too loud. Acoustic guitar and singer did not need a speaker. Room is too small. You could not have a conversation with the people at your table. More like the sound level at a late night bar not a Sunday brunch.
This was our first visit and there will be many more.
I would prefer to dine for brunch in a less loud environment. The singer was so loud we couldn’t hear each other talk. Asked waiter to turn down and it never happened. Also, didn’t like that we had to add on bread at breakfast, no jam furnished, had to ask for butter after biscuits arrived, had to ask for salt and pepper, had to ask for sugar and cream for coffee. And the home fries: tater tots! Come on y’all, don’t call them home fries when you cut up some carrots and add to some tater tot scramble.
It was my father in law’s birthday
Great food and service. The live music was great, but a little bit loud and made it hard to have conversations.
