Great food, terrific service by an experienced and attentive wait staff.
Our reservation was for 8:00 and we didn't get seated until 9:00. The food and service was good, but waiting to be seated took away from the evening.
Food was AWESOME!!! By far the best restaurant steak I’ve had. The only thing I didn’t like was it was way to loud. Just not the environment I enjoy for dinner. But overall, awesome food and service!
The food is always consistent. Service is always amazing. But, if you see a rise in covid cases in Alabama... it absolutely happened here. You could tell they over booked. There were some tables had a plastic divider between but most were extremely close. Wait staff did wear masks and some even eye wear. I felt bad for them. We are able to leave at will but this is their place of employment. This is probably something that can be easily addressed. The amount of people and closeness reminded me of pre-covid times. But we are just not there yet as a nation.
We didn’t leave. So, that’s our fault. But should we have to?
Great food and dining experience.
We absolutely love The Waverly Local!!!! Food is always so good! Atmosphere relaxing and staff is efficient and kind.
Everything was wonderful!
We love Wed music!! And meatloaf!!
I ordered the grouper and it was the best I’d ever had!
Soo Delicious! Wish I heard about this place sooner! One of the best steaks Ive ever had! It was quite salty, but I like salt, so it didnt bother me! Wine was delicious as well!
Food was excellent, service was great. Nice ambience
Always one of our favorite spots
Had a reservation for bar seating on Valentine’s Day. Hostess opened the curtain and pointed to the bar. There were not enough seats together at the bar. We sat at a table in the bar area that became available. It was dirty. After waiting 15 min I went to the hostess stand and ask if we would have table service and was told we would. No one ever came. Eventually after 30 min seats became available at the bar and we moved. The bartender was swamped but was doing his best. The food was pretty good. The atmosphere was very good. Maybe they just weren’t prepared, but o yeah we had reservations.
Love Waverly Local. Only reason I scored ambiance lower was that it was too cool inside.
Food Service was fantastic. Obviously extremely busy and felt that the kitchen was overwhelmed a bit, took a while and food was cold but the quality of the food was outstanding. Otherwise just a wonderful experience
Consistently great food and service !
Casual dining experience with live music...great food, great service....will return
The Waverly Local is my favorite people! It was perfect for a Valentines date for brunch! I requested a booth and they provided! The food and drinks are ALWAYS amazing! I also love when someone is doing live music.. such a special touch! Always choose The Local!
Hands down, the best steak that I've ever eaten. AND it was cooked a PERFECT rare. 20/10 will be back, and SOON.
My cocktail was super sour and bitter at the same time and not drinkable. Tasted like I had just brushed my teeth. The chicken on my salad tasted like it was cooked days before and warmed over. My friend’s steak was so salty she couldn’t finish it. Just was not a pleasant experience and meal for 4 was $200 which is fine if the food and drinks are great but that was not our experience.
Drinks and food were absolutely delicious, and tied in nicely with ambiance!!! Best steak I’ve had in a while!!
First time visiting and was very impressed by the entire experience. Will return!
Great food as always and some of the best service around. Tiffany was the best.
The food that I had was good. I just really wasn’t excited about anything on the menu.
Birthday dinner. No free dessert or happy birthday wishes, but everything else was superb!
Love this place. Always exceptional!
Best place in the Auburn area!

Great! We’ll be back again!

We had a stellar experience here. The service and food were incredible! We will be back!
Amazing service, excellent food, service was great. We had a wonderful time and are going to try to make it back for brunch ASAP.
Marybeth was a wonderful server. Food was outstanding.
Great experience. Brunch was really good. Live music provided great atmosphere. Prices also very reasonable. Service was great. Will be back for sure.
Fun place...great atmosphere, beautiful remodel of an old Ford dealership in this tiny town. Would highly recommend.
Cassidy was our server and once again she was fabulous! Anticipated our needs and was so friendly! We love when she takes care of us! And of course our food was delicious as always!
Mary Beth and the entire staff who served us were great!
Great food & service as always. We always enjoy ourselves here. We drive over an hour and it's always great.
The only improvement I'd say wouod be for the hostess to sit people at every other table, given 6 ft distance.
Great food. Great service. AUsome!
