The Hound is a family owned restaurant and bar featuring American classics, top shelf bourbon and 28 craft beers on tap. Our atmosphere was designed to be warm and welcoming- think hunting lodge, antler-pronged barn setting laced with the beauty of the old days in the South, where life revolved around fishing, hunting, campfires, storytelling and making memories around your family’s table.

The Hound Ratings and Reviews
As always, The Hound is a great place to go for good drinks and good food. The tables are a bit close together so you almost always get into a conversation with your neighbors. Some people may not like this. A little more space might be nice since it is impossible to speak softly enough to prevent a really nosey neighbor from listening to your conversation.
We love using Open Table for reservations. The restaurant will call to confirm and we never have to wait this way.
We have eaten several times at The Hound. Usually great food and great service. Not this time.. the food was simply not fresh, not done well. We didn't complain because we were celebrating a bday. If you want people to come back... you need consistency!!
We had a wonderful dinner with good friends, great beer, good wine! Our food selections were just perfect--from salmon to meatloaf to bourbon chicken to turkey, avacado, bacon sandwich. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and there were people from all ages...college students, young kids, geezers (like us). The noise level was a little high but not too high for lively conversations. We would highly recommend this restaurant to those who would like to experience downtown Auburn and the spirit of Auburn University.
Good food, laid back atmosphere. A bit overpriced considering the atmosphere, but the food is amazing. Highly recommend the drunk chicken with the goat cheese grits. I don't normally like grits, but the goat cheese grits were amazing. Steak was great as well. Bread pudding was a little dry though.
I arranged for a graduation dinner I was unable to attend due to age. Their report was great.Also two extras showed up and The Hound rearranged tables and accommodated their party. I graduated 66 years ago when the hotel dining room was the only "dining" in town Thanks, Rebecca Earnest, Mc Calla, Al.
This was our second time eating at The Hound and we enjoyed it even more the second time. The ambiance is wonderful and the food it delicious. The fish special the night we were there was delicious. Can't wait to visit on our next trip to Auburn.
The Hound is a great place for brunch. The food is excellent and service is great! I took my two adult children and one young grandchild and all really enjoyed it. The omelets are great and so we're the silver dollar pancakes with blueberries. I highly recommend The Hound!
I had the big fat steak (16 oz ribeye), which was neither big nor fat. What I would characterize as a $12 cut of meat that I paid $29 for. My wife had the quail, described by the waitress as small before ordering. On the table I would have used the word tiny. She said it was overly salty. The french fries were very good and I did happen to find a North Coast Tart Cherry Berliner Weisse which was the highlight of my meal. Service was outstanding, no bones about it.
We came to The Hound to celebrate our friend's birthday! We had a great time. Our waiter was very funny and polite. He was an outstanding waiter. The food was good and did not take an extremely long period of time to arrive at the table. We had brought in a small cake and the waiter placed the cake at the hostess table until we were ready for the cake. We were not hurried to leave. All around, it was a good experience for our group.
We went for my son's 25 birthday. He enjoyed the wide choice of beers and whiskies and loved the bison burger. He thought the fries were some of the best ever. The veggie lasagna and meatloaf were also outstanding. The seasonal sausage appetizer of rabbit, duck, and bison was delicious. The restaurant was full, but the noise level didn't interfere with our table conversion. We were five people and the only negative anyone had was my husband's cup of coffee with dessert. We will all be going back.
Had a very nice meal at the Hound. It was my first experience as I live out of state. I had the chicken pot pie, which was very good, especially since it was a chilly night.
Wanted to leave a review and praise our server, Cassidy. She was knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. She kept tabs on us and made sure everything came out correctly. Great experience!
We asked 3 times for the NBA All Star game to be turned on two of the TV s facing our table, manager would not do it. Under staffed on a Sunday night presidents weekend. Couldn't get attention of bartenders to close out tab. Average service at table. Food amazingly delicious. Steaks cooked to perfection. The food is great but disappointed with service.
