My favorite place to eat in Auburn. Richard always makes us feel welcome and the chef is amazing. Servers know their wine and do a great job with pairing. Classy and relaxed. A hidden treasure.
Go here for brunch! My friend and I both had the Crab Cake Bennie and it was amazing! Crab cake was pretty much 100% crab, light, and perfect. We also tried the bloody mary bar - I like the idea and the number of choices, but probably I would have been just as happy if they'd made it for me. Either way, the product was delicious. Highly recommend for brunch (haven't tried lunch or dinner yet).
Great atmosphere and food. While it is not necessarily a "bar scene" the drinks they serve are among the best in Auburn. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves great food, music, service and drinks.
We went for our 25th anniversary and The Depot made us feel so special. The salad and the entrees were extremely good (grouper), and the dessert (peach tart) was insane! Highly recommend.
Best Restaurant in Auburn, AL My wife and I recently went here for our 4th wedding anniversary. When we arrived, our table had a handwritten letter on the table wishing us a happy anniversary. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very relaxing and perfect for a date or a family dinner. As far as the food goes, please get a seafood item on the menu. While there are other options available to accompany all tastes, seafood is certainly their specialty. Not a seafood person? I wasn't either until I ate here. I grew up not enjoying or eating fish. This place has completed changed my perspective on seafood! If you're looking for an appetizer, we got the salmon poke bowel, and it was nothing short of a delicacy. It's a common dish found in Hawaii, but this restaurant brings it to Auburn, AL and does it very well. For the main course, I had Waloo fish flown in from Hawaii as well, which was nothing short of perfection. Part of what makes this place so good is the quality/source of for all of their seafood. I guarantee you the seafood at this place is far greater than anything you will ever eat at the beach. My wife had the grilled swordfish & Lamb Chop combo, and she absolutely loved it (she's a seafood person). I tried hers as well and it had a wonderful taste, with a hint of mint which made for a very unique flavor. For dessert... Wow! Best bread pudding in town for sure (surpasses Acre in every way). I also got a chocolate pudding (it has a different name but forgot) that was very rich. I'm a chocolate lover and this surpassed all expectations. Not only do they have the best food in Auburn, the staff is wonderful and willing to do whatever it takes to make sure your experience is nothing short of perfect.

Wow. What an amazing meal. It's valet parking only complimentary. The prices were a bit high but.omgosh. I don't think there's one thing that isn't worth it. They have a kids menu as well and a burger that can be ordered not in the menu. The gardens outside are so awesome and the kids loved it all! Def a must try and we will def be back!!!
Acre has a great atmosphere, friendly staff, a nice interior, but a unique dining experience in Auburn comes at a price. For starters, you immediately notice the acoustical limitations of talking to the person sitting right next to you as it is about as loud as Jordan Hare on gameday inside the restaurant. Second, the prices are a stretch. The food is very good, and we enjoyed everything we ordered. However, the prices for entrees was excessive and a turnoff. Enjoyed the food, but not likely to be back next time I'm in town because of the haute pricing.
such a fun brunch spot!
Acre is one of the, if not the, best place to eat in the region. For a typical day, I would definitely recommend the lunch over the dinner, as it's very affordable and the meals are unmatched in taste and quality. We've had dinner here once or twice, and while great, we definitely prefer the lunch over that. The atmosphere inside and out are also amazing, love the pear trees and garden outside and the interior has a great feel and AMAZING smell. HIGHLY recommended.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary there last night.It was so loud, nothing cozy about it. It's like a high end sports bar without a TV. The staff was great but our food was cold not to mention the duck was completely rare and swimming in a super sweet sauce,the risotto was so over cooked it was like eating rice pudding. Spending $90 on cold food in a bar setting isn't my idea of a romantic anniversary dinner. Not recommend!!

The best pizza in Auburn, Alabama. The crust tastes delicious. Most pizza places make you regret eating there with how your stomach will feel. Mellow Mushroom uses quality ingredients and I never feel sick after I ate there. It is worth the price.
BEST PIZZA SPOT IN AUBURN AL. The pizza is filling and full of flavor I recomened trying the holy shitake will come again soon with family
EXCELLENT! I took my parents to Mellow on Saturday while they were in town for graduation. We had no trouble getting a table, and our server was great. It was the first time they had ever had Mellow Mushroom pizza and of course they LOVED it; my step mom was even impressed by their gluten-free dough!
Very good and friendly staff. Good ingredients in the pizza.
Pretty solid MM. Good pizza, pretzels do well. Fairly busy and parking is rough, so be aware!

The food is some of the best I have ever ate!' The shrimp and grits and fried chicken are favorites. The deserts are fabulous Small menue that they do great. What all restraints should do.
Terrible experience!! I've always enjoyed visiting this restaurant but I will NOT be returning again. We made a reservation for lunch and took my 89 year old grandmother who was looking forward to the food/experience. They booked a high top for us which would not work for my grandmother. When we asked if we could sit in a booth (or anywhere besides a high top), they informed us they had no spots available. During our conversation I pointed out a booth that was empty, but they told us it was booked for a reservation an HOUR AWAY from when this conversation was taking place. Nobody seemed to understand how bad that sounds to a customer, and they didn't seem to care if we walked out the door or not! I understand scheduling reservations at a busy restaurant is tough, but the only option we were given by staff was "sorry, we cannot accommodate you". The manager/supervisor was not helpful at all and even made a smart comment to me as we were walking out the door insinuating the whole issue was our fault. Yes, we could have requested a booth when we made a reservation, but resolving the issue in a professional manner to accommodate the customer was not happening. No other options were given except to leave. Apparently they do not put their customers first! I am so disappointed Amsterdam!!
8-11-17 Was our first time ever visiting. I was gonna give 4 stars because service sucked but the food more than made up for it. I had the prime ribeye with asparagus and mashed potatoes. OMG!!!!! We ordered 2 appetizers, yum yum shrimp and lobster rolls. They were excellent as well. Summer our server needs more training due to not bringing one appetizer and messing up completely getting the desert order wrong. But like I say the food is awesome.
Previously I've had great experiences dining at Amsterdam Cafe. I've been eating there since I was in school at Auburn (over 20 years). However, today I was extremely disappointed. My husband, 5yo and I walked in to see many open tables. We were told the wait would be over an hour. The man behind me walked in and he asked if his party would have to wait that long. The hostess said "No, it's because they have a kid". The hostess just stared at me and we left. I'm glad Auburn has great restaurants to choose from as I will not be going back to Amsterdam Cafe.
The food was amazing. Chef Fabian really outdid himself. My husband loved his fried chicken, collards, and mac & cheese. I had the catfish special. It was so much food that we took half home.

Nice pub with a good selection of beers. The food was excellent and the atmosphere very relaxing. Overall a great place to spend the evening.
The ambiance is wonderful and the food was excellent. I would take anyone visiting the area here in a heartbeat. The sweet tea fried chicken and cornbread are delicious!!!
Loved their Sunday brunch. Highly recommend. Great atmosphere. The food was very good.
My wife and I went to Cafe 123 for her birthday. We had been there a couple of times before, but this time was even better than the previous trips. The restaurant is small and quiet with a relaxed ambience.
Delicious food. Good service great presentation. This is located in downtown Opelika, Alabama. I was impressed with the food. I ordered the pirk tenderloin and whipped potatoes served with slivers of carrots. It was divine! so tender, and tasty. The place was crowded so reserved are recommended especially on weekends. Nice tooftop seating. All in all, eonderful food.
