I was craving a good steak, and my wife suggested we hit The Hound, a restaurant that we had visited and enjoyed previously, but hadn't been to in quite some time. We had the superb Sausage Sampler for our appetizer, which consisted of Duck, Rabbit, and Bison sausage--divine and each one with its own uniqueness. Then our main courses came,... More

Found this little gem upon the recommendation of the lady in a gift shop along the Main Street. It is kinda tucked back of beyond and we may not have just stumbled upon it. Great ambience, good service, great menu.....try the homemade family recipe meatloaf ...you will not be disappointed. Generous portions too.

My wife and I were in town for a basketball game and we found this gem of a restaurant in the downtown Auburn area. The building was the the home of the Auburn/Opelika Press when I was in school there so we did not know what to expect. We ended up having a great waitress and loved this place. We... More

My husband needed a steak dinner last night so I suggested that this establishment was likely the best in our local area. They delivered a perfectly cooked steak and I had literally the best chicken pot pie of my life. The Hound always delivers quality food with a smile. The decor is cool Alabama at its best, too. GO!

We had a late lunch at The Hound while in Auburn visiting the university. I had a chicken sandwich that was phenomenal. My husband and daughter both had cheeseburgers which they said were excellent. We are at the bar and the bartender was very nice and friendly. We enjoyed The Hound and will definitely be visiting again.

We went to toast our daughters graduation!! The drinks were excellent as was the brussel sprout salad, and the sausage sampler. The pimento cheese was as delicious as ever. We were not as fond of the fried green beans... it was just that we have had better! The bread pudding was excellent as well.

We were in town for just one night and decided to try The Hound. Great spot (although a little tricky to find) with a nice, fun vibe and good food. Bison burger was excellent.

Loved the atmosphere. Wonderful downtown location. I had the sprout salad, spicy pimento cheese spread, and quail as an entree. All three were amazing! The drink menu was extensive. Definitely worth a visit.

Great atmosphere and excellent food. Had the Bison burger and loved it. Their Bourbon and Whiskey selection is second to none. Only place I know of that you can get Pappy Van Winkle. We will be visiting them again very soon.

We stopped for brunch while passing through town. The food was delicious and the mimosas were super affordable. My husband had a bison burger that was great! They also have a nice selection of local Alabama beers that he just had to try. You can't go wrong with the spicy pimento cheese app!
