Stopped in during a cold rain storm and ordered the crab cakes and garlic fries while sitting next to an awesome real wood fireplace. The crab cakes were ok, they came on one plate and we were not offered individual plates, nonetheless they were good....More

Bootleggers is one of the better restaurants in town. My favorite is the skirt steak. It's so good! We had St Patrick's Day dinner here, and the corned beef was perfect. This place is versatile when it comes to kicking back with friends in the...More

By warm - I mean that on a cold winter's evening that huge fireplace sure felt good. The waitress was fun and the food delicious. We really enjoyed our dinner and splurged on a delicious dessert, too. Fun place.

Bootleggers has the best ambiance, although it can get noisy. The food is better than the average fine dining place. Parking is always an issue in Old Town. The owner has Culinary Institute of America (Hyde Park - the original) training which indicates good eats!

They were out of at least four items we attempted to order. Slow service. Main courses came out at different times. Wings were mediocre. Beer salad over-filled with greens with almost no goat cheese. Unfortunate.

I love coming to this restaurant in Auburn for the good food and nice atmosphere. But it looks as though it could use a little remodeling. Great owners and great staff.

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...More

To anyone who read my last review about Bootleggers, I mistakenly wrote my review for another restaurant in Auburn. Please disregard my comments as this is NOT an Italian restaurant.
