And the food is great as well. Great specials everyday and the own has an eye, shall we say, for talent. All dressed in black but some of Auburn's classic southern beauties will serve you with a smile here. Downtown Auburn's best high-end food choice.

Great up scale dinning experience... Very elegant and extremely nice atmosphere. If I had one suggestion to make it would be to add more appetizers to the menue... Very nice but small. I actually wish it were bigger in order to accommodate a larger clientele but not sure the kitchen could handle it. I am very picky and this is... More

I love the outdoor dining option - it is fun to be right on Magnolia and people watch! A bit noisy inside, but great food and attractive atmosphere.

The service was very good as was the soup of the day. And now for the bad news: The men's bathroom was none too clean with paper towels littering the floor. The crab cakes exterior were warm and had obviously just been heated which is more than can be said for the cold almost frozen filling. The burger was overcooked... More

Lunch meeting with colleague. Great food. Wonderful atmosphere and wait staff with exceptional hospitality. I had the speciality spinach salad with blackened chicken. This was an outstanding choice for lunch.

Nice restaurant with good prices. Walkable from the Auburn university hotel. Its a small town with lots of restaurants but would recommend.

We came out to eat here while staying at a nearby Rv park for the night. The service was good, the food was good, and we enjoyed our meal immensely. I had shrimp and grits and my wife had a steak, both great choices. Great atmosphere, and not too hard on the wallet. All in all, a nice evening.

The fried green tomatoes with shrimp are the best by far. The staff is always professional and cater to everyone.

We took our college aged kids to lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. We were seated promptly and our drink order was taken. Plenty of choices from the lunch menu..burgers, sandwiches, salads, etc.. All were reasonably priced. The crowd was a mix of college students and business people. It took maybe an hour from arrival time to completing the meal. Hamilton's... More

Found the burgers to be fantastic - grilled with an excellent sear. A bit on the noisy side but that should be expected. A nice low key setting convenient to downtown.

Thank wbp2016
