We've been wanting to check out this place for a while. Wish we checked it out in the summer, so we could've eaten outside. The best part of our meal was the salad we split as an appetizer. It was a shaved brussel sprout salad. Awesome! I had the scallops with roasted fall vegetables and it was delicious. Very light... More

This gem never disappoints! Excellent food with great service on every visit👏👏. I love that it is BYOB and that the tables are not as close together as they used to be. You can have a conversation and not feel like you are disturbing the next table. Come for the food, relax and enjoy!

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

We had an incredible time there..a surprise Birthday party. The food was amazing, the service was excellent, and Lauren helped me plan- she was a lifesaver! It was truly a wonderful night! Strong recommend!

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
