Very pleasant

We were a group of 12 ranges in ages between 4 and 73 and the waitress did a wonderful job to accommodate our different needs. The menu was quite diverse and the food very tasty.

Bootlegger's has been a fixture in Auburn for as long as I can remember. Located in Old Town, the restaurant sports a well-worn and comfortable bar; the main dining room is separated from the bar by a magnificent see-thru fireplace constructed from local river rock. There is also al fresco dining available in front of the restaurant, but it abuts... More

Always a pleasant experience, the food is good and the atmosphere appealing. I ate the oysters on the half shell and shrimp cocktail. Both were fresh and delicious.

Service is lacking. My friend and I went to dinner last Friday, July 10th (she NEVER gets out). I ordered the Mixed Grill, which was a mixture of pork loin, chicken and strip steak w/a sweet chili glaze (delish!). My friend had the Filet Al Bleu with the Garlic Toasted Hoagie (huge disappointment). It was ordered as well, no pink... More

Attended a social function at Bootleggers. The food (I had a fish entree) was cooked just right, seasoned perfectly and had a great presentation. Husband had a beef dish which he also praised as delicious.

After reading good reviews and being in the area, we stopped in for lunch. The clientele is older, but I don't know why. The food was very tasty - French dip and fish tacos. The fries were very fresh, crisp and tasty. My only regret is that I didn't try their Crème Brule which I had read is excellent. Good... More

The ambience is great, staff is friendly and professional. The food, however, is mediocre, and the prices are too high for my "taste."

Today my buddy got the seasonal urge for Corned Beef & Cabbage. It was on the lunch menu at least for today, St. Patrick's Day. It was very competent corn beef, slices which were moist & flavorful. The accompaniments of potato, cabbage, & carrot were tasty & not overdone. An accompanying Guinness Stout wasn't n the cards today, I settled... More

When you walk in, you first see the bar. It is a beautiful carved wood, old school bar that is immediately inviting. To the right was a working, stone fireplace which was perfect on this chilly night. You can eat in the bar area or the more formal dining area. The tables in the dining room are covered in white...

Food quality is mediocre. This is based on several visits to this restaurant. Hope that they can improve on this shortcoming.
