The salad bar was a joke, the food is not good, very bland.

“Excellent Sea Food Platter”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

The sea food platter on Friday night is excellent. The catfish filets,shrimp, and scallops were delicious. The home made tartar sauce and cocktail sauce are unmatched! The cornbread is wonderful. The hush puppies are enormous. And the service is always wonderful.

“Real county cooking”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

Auten's is a little funky but fun. We have only had breakfast there but a great alternative to IHOP or Cracker Barrel. Service is always with a smile and southern hospitality.

“Huge portions, excellent food”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

Went for breakfast and had the Steak Omelet which was fantastic, the steak was flavorful and tender. Home made biscuts are huge, pancakes are bigger than the plate they are served on, French Toast and grits were really good. Forget the Cracker Barrel, Waffle House, IHOP, for real down home cooking you HAVE to go to Autens!

“Local is better than IHOP or Waffle House”
Reviewed December 26, 2011

The pancakes were awesome. Dinner menu appears to be my traditional southern choice, look for another review soon. Service was excellent and personal. The aforementioned are reasonable but I prefer a locally owned restaurants at home or out of town.
