Acre is a delightful anachronism — a restaurant with sophisticated charm and repurposed architectural details serving stylishly modern food with roots deep in Southern soil. Good traditions for good people, a neighborhood place perfect for conducting business, relaxing with friends or making memories with family.
Acre is located in the historic downtown district of Auburn just three blocks from Toomer’s Corner, the heart of the Auburn community. Chef David Bancroft and his team bring classic favorites to the table with fresh, innovative flavors and artistic presentations. “Our goal is to interpret the complex, traditional tastes of the Deep South in a totally fresh and modern way,” says Bancroft.
Acre strives to be a vibrant part of the “Auburn” experience welcoming students, returning alums and University guests to celebrate everything we treasure about this special town with us. Visit our authentic Toomer’s Oak Tree, a genetic clone grown from a root shoot of the famous tree that welcomed generations of the Auburn family back home. Whether meeting for a private business lunch in the Corner Room, having dinner with friends or family, or just relaxing with friends in the lounge, Acre hopes to become an Auburn tradition that you will celebrate often!
Chef Bancroft collaborates with the Auburn University Meat Lab and local ranchers to allow sourcing of responsibly farm-raised meat. Look for these charcuterie offerings on the ‘Butcher’s Block’ along with house-made pickles and jams as well as many delicious cheeses produced by local and regional artisans. Bancroft searches and finds the freshest seafood, with special emphasis to fish and shellfish from the Gulf Coast.
