This is our go to place for a good, quality meal. There are plenty of tables. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Through the years we have tried about everything and find it all very satisfying.

Yeah, it's a little loud and it may lack the polished look of a five-star restaurant, but you won't be disappointed in the food or service. We're just visitors to this town so we followed the advice from fellow TripAdvisors and made a dinner reservation for this evening. Thanks, everyone! You were right! My fried chicken dinner was served piping... More

This is a really fun place to eat. The inside is all brink and wood. They even have live music in the evenings. I was there for lunch and it was great, had dirty fried and peel and eats, friend had pork hamburger. Everything was really tasty. We had fun choosing some different beers, they had a very large selection.... More

We usually go there in spring and fall. We like their patio, especially when we can get a corner table. Inside, the ambience is also nice with white table cloths. Lunches and wine have always been good. Lots of fun places to walk and shop nearby. A fun spot for tourists.

We stopped by here unexpectedly on a week night in June. The restaurant was busy but not too crowded. Several patrons were enjoying their meal on the patio out front. Our meals were delicious and the service was great! I'm glad we needed to change our original plans and ended up here instead.

Took my mom here for dinner on her birthday. I had the prime rib which was cooked perfectly as I asked - medium rare - and it was wonderful. Mom had the filet mignon, ordered the same way and unfortunately was over done, enough that we sent it back, but the new one was underdone. I know steak can be... More

If your looking for a great dining experience and want to sit outside in a beautiful sitting, you can't beat Bootleggers during cool spring and summer evenings. The service is top notch and the food is the best in Auburn. I love the fact that each of the tables outside have white linen table clothes and napkins and fresh flowers... More

We had a lovely late lunch here in our way from San Francisco to Lake Tahoe. The little town of Auburn is very charming, and this saloon is a perfect stop! The food was very nice for both adults and children! Service was kind and efficient, and the kids got crayons and coloring. Perfect!
