This well-designed and beautiful restaurant is obvious from the moment you enter. From being greeted by the very friendly waitstaff to having your order taken and all questions fully answered until the always excellently prepared foods arrive, this restaurant cannot be topped. The three course mid-day special meals are a real bargain and prepared individually with the same care given... More

Recommend the crab cakes and the grilled Griggstown chicken. Both were very good. Have had the sirloin burger at lunch several times before. The Tiger fish entree is also very good. We eat at Acacia 10 times a year. Had a good crowd for a Thursday evening considering the rainy weather and the late hour. service was very good. Recommend... More

We have eaten at Acacia numerous times over the last 20 years, most recently about once a year, and always enjoyed it in the past. Last Saturday was a very different experience. The appetizer I ordered was the Calamari (a frequent choice for me). It was as good as usual (and is really big enough for two people, but my... More

I've been to scores and scores of restaurants, and many of them rate up there as excellent meals. So is the case at Acacia. This is a delightful Italian... More

Very upbeat and gourmet menu. Food usually very good. Turned off during my last visit due to problem with 2 flies. Ruined the ambiance.

Saturday before Mother's Day, with my wife and daughter for a Mother's Day treat. And it was. The service is calm and knowledgeable, the food is expertly done, and the price is reasonable, not least because it is BYOB, so the restaurant price load on wine is off the table so to speak. My shrimp and grits appetizer (creamy polenta... More
