The Waverly Local
Located in historic downtown Waverly, The Local brings culinary life to one of Alabama’s first Ford dealerships. We offer seasonally inspired, simple southern fare amidst mid-century modern decor in a beautifully repurposed garage setting. Come early and have a drink at our full-service bar, then relax and enjoy a delicious supper featuring fresh ingredients from Alabama and it’s neighboring states.
Food was excellent, especially the tenderloin. It was perfectly cooked and had the most wonderful taste. Laney, our server, was very attentive and made our dinner an enjoyable time.
Visiting family on vacation had been there before and loved it. Was hoping we could go back and it was just as awesome this time. Highly recommend
It was not clear that their menu had changed to fixed price at about twice the cost of their regular entree....
This place never disappoints. Food and service always great. Amazing place, especially for being isolated and very little if any advertising.
The food is excellent and the server did a great job. The new set menu has really good choices. The atmosphere is so relaxing and perfect for a night out. Tables are spaced for safety and the servers have on masks. There were also some tables outside. Highly recommend visiting.
it was incredible thank you guys for such a good night
Limited Menu due to Covid, They are using One price for all, Its a full dinner Appetizer, Salad, Main entrant, dessert. The food is very good. Just a lot. I dont eat dessert so that was wasted.
We were seated outside but it was a nice night and very comfortable.
Even with COVID 19 issue The Waverly was great. Select menu, but my redfish was awesome. My favorite place to go after a day on Lake Martin.
Steak cooked to perfection. Red fish did not have much taste. Dirty rice fritters, salad and coconut cake delicious!
We sat on the patio and enjoyed the prix fix menu, everything was delicious! Had lovely cocktails and the ambiance was perfect.
Even though we usually request Tiffany, our server this time was great. The atmosphere was perfect but I highly recommend getting table chairs that don't seem to be recycled from a preschool classroom. The menu was perfectly quaint and every choice was a great option. Keep up the great work but PLEASE... get chairs that are fit for adults, not toddlers. Thank you for listening!
The perfect place to celebrate a special occasion or to just enjoy dinner with friends!
Excellent as usual!! Always good food, service and ambiance.
Always great and the best service. Limited menu right now but done well ! No complaints as usual !!
Absolute hidden treasure! Great meal. Excellent service. Fantastic ambiance. Can’t think of anything bad to say. Highly recommend if you are in Auburn or Lake Martin area. Worth a few miles to experience!
As always, excellent service by a friendly and caring staff. Delicious food and drink served in a pleasant, unique atmosphere in a charming southern village. Excellent on all counts. Thank you.
Beef tenderloin and chocolate torte were amazing!
Outstanding - glad you're back! Looking forward to the full menu, but 3 of us got 3 different meals and were all delicious!
Food and service both excellent at Sunday brunch. Open Table rates it as best in state.
We had heard about the Waverly and decided to try the Sunday brunch. It was absolutely wonderful. Loved everything about this place and recommend it to everyone
We LOVED Waverly Local! I had heard great things from friends, and it did not disappoint. Our server, Lane, was beyond excellent, and of course, the food was just outstanding. Such a great outing!
Awesome food and service. Thank you very much for you attention to detail.
Waverly Local is one of our favorite restaurants. Very pleasant staff and manager who always check to see if all is okay.
really enjoyed our experience. we will be back. The hunters breakfast was outstanding and the grits were creamy and very good.
Always a great spot. Would recommend for any weekend.
A great "out of the way" venue. The staff and selection are wonderful and the different ambiance makes for a fun outing with friends or a date night.
Excellent appetizers and food. I’ll be back again.
We had a wonderful brunch and everyone’s meal was great! I loved the grits as my side with the omelet
The service was a little slow,however, our waiter had a very large party.
As always the Waverley Local never let's us down. We had a fabulous dinner with friends, celebrating birthdays. The food is wonderful, creative and fresh!
This place is amazing!! Every part of the experience is worth 5 stars!!! The Waverly Local is a place I find hard to leave... I want to stay and linger. The appetizers are all so good!! You must try the pork skins, seriously a must! Entrees are beautifully plated and delicious. Just can’t say enough about this place!!
Only one table in use and it took us 10-15 to be seated. Food was excellent but amount of food/drink for the price was not enough to draw me back (this was my second time there).
Overall good experience. However not having enough rib eyes or crab cakes was a disappointment to an already limited menu.
We’ve been to the Local multiple times and it never disappoints. This time we were there to celebrate Valentines Day & they offered a great menu for that. We had the grouper, crabcake, & strip steak, all of which were excellent. Also had the shrimp bisque to start and it was very very good. Finally, we split a HUGE slab of cheesecake with some vanilla marmalade & it was AMAZING. The drinks were too notch as well.
Food and service was great. Tiffany was great. Since we had been here before Laney and Marquis came over to our table to say hello and welcome back.
Atmosphere was outstanding! The food and service was ABOVE AND BEYOND my expectations. I would recommend this little jewel in Waverly to anyone seeking a WONDERFUL MEAL and EXCELLENT ATMOSPHERE! Thank you for the experience and I’ll DEFINITELY be back!
