The atmosphere of the Hound is trendy, but that all goes away once you have their BLT in your hand. If you are feeling adventurous add some avocado. The menu is mouth watering. Anything you order will satisfy your pallet The Hound is a hidden gem and a must eat on any road trip to Auburn.

Never had anything bad there except their brewed coffee. Need to use Toomer's Coffee (a local coffee roastery that has national appeal).

Very nice, lively ambiance and wait staff are attentive and brought condiments. The restaurant is clean (at least the flatware, tables and napkins- I did not use the restroom) and the decor is visually interesting. They have a very nice variety of things to drink (we weren't drinking), but unfortunately, only one choice of dessert (bread pudding). People of all... More

The service is fantastic the waitress the bartenders everybody was fantastic I got the meatloaf and it was really small and dry and the potatoes are hard as a rock I didn't complain but I'd like to come back and eat something else because it's such a nice place I don't know if it deserves number one in Auburn

My wife and I were at a business conference at Auburn University. Several of us from the conference decided to go have dinner one evening and we had never been to The Hound. Wow! Awesome atmosphere. Great food and very friendly staff. With our son beginning college in Auburn this fall we will definitely be returning to The Hound. I... More

My steak was well done when I wanted medium. My salad was good however the service was delightful. Thank you for the southern hospitality I've heard a lot about!

The meatloaf was dry, overcooked and bland. This place used to have some of the best bacon, and the meatloaf as I recall had a good spicyness to it that was great. Very disappointed. Porkchop was just a porkchop and nothing too special. Their red snapper special was good.

TripAdvisor reviews led us to The Hound on our second visit to Auburn. Our reservations (recommended) landed us a table right on time and our server Melinda gave us very good menu tips. The Wild Game Sausage appetizer was interesting and tasted fine, but seemed small for the price. We then shared the Sprouts Salad which was excellent, followed by... More

We found the Hound on our freshman trip with our son. We go back every time we're in town. You must have the jalapeño jelly and cream cheese appetizer and the spicy pimiento cheese appetizer. Our first visit was brunch and my omelet was delicious. I've also had the shrimp and grits, Hair of the Hound sandwich and the turkey,... More
