Food is great and innovative, services was wonderful. Have been there several times and never been disappointed and it is a BYOB. Not inexpensive, but worth every penny. Best for special occasionsNice ambiance for a relaxed and romantic dinner

Okay menu, decent ambiance, reasonable service, but overall not worth the price. Not a place I'd go regularly. Parking is easy.

We love this place and switch off between Vidalia and acacia. More intimate, more formal. Excellent food and BYO. We meet friends from central New Jersey there. Meat dishes are superb.

Walk past the outdoor patio & around the the side entrance leading to a welcoming white table clothed dining room. Greeted by a pleasantly smiling hostess, our party of 5 was seated immediately. This venue, housed in a beautiful brick building along Main Street offers plenty of "Off Street" parking making the journey pleasantly convenient. The menu of American Cuisine... More

A consistent restaurant with fine dining. Never had a miss here. Great service, intimate atmosphere and an evolving menu that suits 'foodies'.

Acacia is very well known for its AMAZING food, prepared by owner/chef Chris. He and his fiancé Lauren, who is also a server, are the dynamic duo. Last night we had dined with friends of ours. I had the homemade Fettuccine, as did my husband, and our guests the Pork Chop and Duck. Per usual, the Duck and Pork Chop... More

They do not suddenly cancel on their patrons when they get a big party; again, they try very hard to accommodate you. The owner is not above... More

the roasted duck breast is highly recommended. Cooked to perfection, nice presentation. Guests had the gnocchi and the risotto with crab meat and both are also recommended. Service was very good.
