“Quality Food in Auburn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Great decor, ambiance, and excellent choice of food and beers. The food is the opposite of what you would find in a fast food: quality products, great home made options, sort of a gastro pub in the south, pretty rare! Recommended for sure in Auburn.

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

The Hound is a great place. Food, service, beer selection, atmosphere. It has the whole package. Be sure to check it out. It can be hard to find because the front of the restaurant faces a parking garage. Don't let walking down the alley throw you off, it's well worth the excursion!!!!!!

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Decent beer selection. Nice appetizers. Fresh fried pork rinds should be tried. Much better than ones you find in a store. They were still crackling a little when delivered.

“Great college bar/restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

I stumbled upon this place after seeing several people enter a tunnel that leads to a parking area from College street. I followed them wanting to know what was back there and assumed since it was lunch time that there must be something good. Boy, was I right!

Pros
I got the pork rinds at the suggestion of the bartender and while they were slightly on the salty side, when they came out they were still popping from being cooked and otherwise tasty. The hand pattied burger came out with the cheese and sliced peppers I ordered. It was outstanding. I had good interaction with both the bartender and another gentleman who I assume was either the owner or the manager.

Cons
I'd send out the pork rinds with a shaker of the salt mixture to let customers salt it to their own taste. The burger that I had ordered medium came out on the rarer side of medium rare, which is ok by me, but I'd bet a lot of people would send it back. Just keep an eye on that.

Overall
I loved this place. Great food, great service, all in a unique atmosphere.

“Nice lodge pub atmosphere and good nonpub food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Make a reservation if you can. We had a long wait without one on a busy Saturday night. Enjoyed our visit and meal despite the long wait. Don't miss the bacon wrapped dates! I had the gem salad and it was really good. Lettuce tasted very tender and fresh. Kids enjoyed the place too, ages 6 & 9. No published kids menu but they split a regular burger and fries and had plenty. Good family meal experience overall.
