My family and friends (15) had lunch in early August. The staff was excellent and very accommodating. The atmosphere was quiet and classy. The food was excellent. Our party was able to enjoy each others company, dine on excellent food from appetizers to dessert and everyone commented on what a lovely afternoon they had. Making reservations was easy due to...

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

Upon entering the space to write this review, I was asked if this was one of the best meals I've ever had. While I said no, don't let that mislead you. 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

Friday evening dinner, restaurant quieter than usual, maybe 25 people there when we arrived for our 7:30 reservation. Another 12 - 15 arrived after. Service and ambience were terrific. Had a classic ceasar salad to start which was good. Could improve it with larger and tastier croutons. Partner had shrimp baked in pastry. These were outstanding. Three shrimp wrapped individually...

For years I have driving by this place thinking, how cute, outside seating, I bet this place would be great! So, I finally got myself a gift certificate from restaurants.com & met a friend there. The menu is limited but if you are not a picky eater, you will be able to find something. Most items *sounded* great! The waitress... More
