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!
Great food and service. Waverly Local has a nest and charming ambiance. Love to go there.
Wonderful service and food. We loved the fried pork rinds, chili and crab cakes. Our waitress was excellent. Can’t wait to go back!
Celebrating my son getting into medical
The food was amazing as usual! We love The Waverly Local!
ALWAYS OUTSTANDING!!!! One of our Top 5 favorites around here! Love the live music on Wednesdays & Sundays when we go.
Mixed drinks were perfect. Compliments.
Apps were great. More bacon wrapped auka would be nice for the price. The homemade chili was good and tasted home made (in a good way).
Fish was good.. no complaints.
The steak was excellent. Asked for a medium rare... should have asked for a rare.. like it
a little more bloody. But that is a personal thing and varies between cooks so I get it.
The broccoli was literally the best I have had. Crispy yet not raw. Serious...I was blown away.
The cheese cake was good. I like a crisper crust but again...personally thing. The coconut cake was good. I was hoping for more considering the reviews...no complaints just thought it would be more (don't know what my expectation were to start with anyways).
We are coming back is all you need to know. Bar needs more seats or more seats for people waiting to be sat. Would have spent money there but we had no where to sit and the bar tender was busy with seated customers.
Love this place, and they are observing all COVID requirements which makes one feel safe.
We were pleasantly surprised with an outstanding meal, excellent service from Marcus and music by Jonathan Bloom. What a great spot for a Wednesday outing. We will be back.
First time having brunch there. Food was good but was not hot when it arrived at our table. Music/entertainment was good but too loud, hard to have conversation at our table amongst each other. I’ll go back for another try but was a little disappointed since I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my evening dining experiences there.
Great atmosphere and great food! Loved it, will definitely be back!
Date night! Great hostess service, waitress was very knowledgeable of food and wine choices, food is delicious.
We had such an amazing experience ! The atmosphere was unique and intimate and the food ..... the food ... y’all the food was amazing ! We had the sweetest waiter as well ! I’m already planning our next date night there again
Great restaurant! We enjoyed our dinner. The steaks are amazing!
A fantastic restaurant! All the 5 star ratings we read were spot on. Next time we are in the area, we will definitely be coming in again for dinner.
Steaks were over the top amazing but Side salad was no where near worth $8.! We were there for New Year’s Eve and the wait staff and hostess seemed to have never worked in an upscale restaurant before. We were surprised and disappointed all the way up till the main course got there.
I ordered a ribeye and my husband ordered the filet. While the flavor was really good on both, my ribeye was extremely chewy and tough. I had a bite of the filet and it was definitely the better choice. We wrapped up with a slice of coconut cake and it was delicious.
All of our server (Roger) suggestions from the wine, Earthquake, to the roasted pork was outstanding.
My husband had the filet mignon which was also very good. My two adult kids had the rib-eye which they felt was a little too fatty but enjoyed it.
Cake by Amanda was simply delicious.
Thank you to Roger for his excellent service.
Steak had to be sent back twice , everyone else was finished eating by the time she got hers , fish was dry and over cooked , prime rib was undercooked but didn’t send it back
One of our FAVORITE places! Always exceptional service & food!
From the appetizers and wine to an amazing main course, this was a perfect date night! Our server was incredible and recommended an excellent wine selection for us to try. The pimento cheese and pork rines are out of this world, and both the grouper and prime rib special were divine! We loved how the menu elevates southern home cooked classic dishes, and would recommend this restaurant to anyone!
Everything we had was great. Staff was attentive. We always enjoy ourselves when we go there.
Food and service was perfect. They had a musician and as good as he was the restaurant is too small to be able to enjoy visiting with friends.
Always enjoy The Waverly. Nothing better than a top shelf margarita and some Wickles Okra followed by a prime cut of beef.
Wonderful as always! Great food & service! Moderate noise due to live music & larger parties seated nearby.
Great experience overall, would definitely recommend!
Great food, great drinks, and amazing service! Went here for a graduation celebration dinner and it was incredible. Cool location and great vibe. Definitely make a reservation!
Great food. Awesome service. Definitely look forward to coming back soon.
Dinner was out standing . Thr mushroom pasta was to die for. My husband was very sad that the fried chicken wasn’t on the menu, but the wonderful steak did make him feel better. It was outstanding as well.
Damn good meal and great service! I'll defiantly come back, soon.
My husband and I enjoyed another outstanding meal at The Waverly Local. We’ve dined here on several occasions and have always been impressed with the menu choices and the food is always delicious. The service is excellent..friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Food and service is always great!
Great experience delicious food.
Loved the restaurant! Food was amazing!
We enjoyed a fantastic lunch and had the best seat in the house. Music was outstanding and service too! Can’t wait to back!
Another great Brunch at Waverly Local! Tried some different menu items, pimento cheese and fried sourdough-bread along with crispy pork skins were awesome starters, Wilbur's Omelette was on point and the weather and live music set the perfect stage for an outdoor brunch.
We celebrated my birthday and everything was wonderful!! Highly recommend this great little spot!!
The food was delicious and so glad it was because I have bragged on this place to many people. It’s by favorite restaurant around Auburn.
Wonderful dinner! Fresh, local ingredients are a huge plus!!
