Bootleggers has the best ambiance, although it can get noisy. The food is better than the average fine dining place. Parking is always an issue in Old Town. The owner has Culinary Institute of America (Hyde Park - the original) training which indicates good eats!

They were out of at least four items we attempted to order. Slow service. Main courses came out at different times. Wings were mediocre. Beer salad over-filled with greens with almost no goat cheese. Unfortunate.

I love coming to this restaurant in Auburn for the good food and nice atmosphere. But it looks as though it could use a little remodeling. Great owners and great staff.

This is our go to place for a good, quality meal. There are plenty of tables. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Through the years we have tried about everything and find it all very satisfying.

Yeah, it's a little loud and it may lack the polished look of a five-star restaurant, but you won't be disappointed in the food or service. We're just visitors to this town so we followed the advice from fellow TripAdvisors and made a dinner reservation for this evening. Thanks, everyone! You were right! My fried chicken dinner was served piping... More

This is a really fun place to eat. The inside is all brink and wood. They even have live music in the evenings. I was there for lunch and it was great, had dirty fried and peel and eats, friend had pork hamburger. Everything was really tasty. We had fun choosing some different beers, they had a very large selection.... More

We usually go there in spring and fall. We like their patio, especially when we can get a corner table. Inside, the ambience is also nice with white table cloths. Lunches and wine have always been good. Lots of fun places to walk and shop nearby. A fun spot for tourists.

We stopped by here unexpectedly on a week night in June. The restaurant was busy but not too crowded. Several patrons were enjoying their meal on the patio out front. Our meals were delicious and the service was great! I'm glad we needed to change our original plans and ended up here instead.
