This was our first time to Zazu's. We drove over from Auburn and it was worth it. We all loved it. The hush puppies for an appetizer were great! We also enjoyed the Mahi Mahi with grits and the Steak and Eggs. We will definitely be back.

Kimberly, our server, was amazing. We were a table of 10 and never wanted for anything. She was attentive, friendly and extremely hard working. 5 stars to Kimberly!!!

Sarah was a great asset to our experience at Zazu! She was attentive but not intrusive on our time together. Thank you for your unique menu and including a menu item with very few carbs for me trying to eat healthier. May I suggest you add another item that would also meet this criteria or options available to vary current menu items. Thank you for such a special place in our little Railroad town. We enjoyed dining before the Friday night crowd arrived and the noise level is significantly greater(as experienced the previous Friday, Sept 6th). Blessings!!!

We had never been before and went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The scallops were very tender and tasty. We also enjoyed the boiled peanuts. They were a cool substitute for a basket of bread. The flat iron steak was a little tough, though, but the mashed potatoes were delicious. Our only real complaint was that we had to ask for cokes instead of ice water because the water tasted bad. Our server was sweet and helpful and fixed us right up. Overall, it was a nice dining experience.

Specifically requested NOT to be sat in bathrooms. But, even though empty tables, again attempted to sit us at bathroom door. Left.

The food was good, but the service was less than impressive. We waited almost an hour past our reservation time to get a table, causing us to have to rush our dinner to make a concert.

My Auburn student and I came for our last night here together and I was amazed by the historic district of Opelika and the beauty of this restaurant. Every bite was delicious and we had a wonderful female server. Highly recommend to get away from the university atmosphere when you're ready and have a splendid meal.

Food was excellent. My husband ate the sweet tea chicken with his fingers so as not to miss a bite. Shrimp appetizer was also outstanding. We will go back next time we are visiting the area

This restaurant is usually great and we enjoy our meal. However, this time we were seated in the bottom section of the restaurant near the door. It was so hot....! I realize this is August in the south, but this was too hot for comfort. We were all sweating while we were eating our meal. At the time we were there, the sunset was staring everyone in the face on one side of the table too! Ugh! Our group wasn't very happy. The food was good though. Next time, I want to sit somewhere else........

This was our 2nd visit. We chose Zazu to celebrate both our 1 yr dating anniversary and 24 hr old engagement. We could not have made a better choice. Everything was absolutely top notch, the appetizers, the entrees and the dessert. Especially noteworthy was Adam our waiter. From is hospitality to his dining suggestions, we could not ask for a better waiter and I dont believe the management could ask for a better personality to represent their fine dinery. It was an unparalleled experience! Thank you.


Warm Regards,

Gerald & Mary

Dined with my husband, son and daughter in law. My son and his wife are vegetarians. They didn’t have any specific vegetarian dishes, but made accommodations and provided a great meal. Always a lovely experience.

Chef Graham always delivers consistent, high quality farm fresh to table food. A jewel of the food and service industry in the Lee County area, I wouldn’t miss having a lunch or dinner at this established restaurant in historic downtown Opelika.

If there were a scale from 1-10, everyone of my experiences would be an 11! The food is incredible and the atmosphere is always perfect. The location is even better. I drove over 65 miles just for my new girlfriend just to let her know where the best kept secret is.

Excellent food and great Southern hospitality! We loved the ambiance of the building, an old historic building remodeled to be three levels, even an outside terrace. We had the short ribs and fried chicken. Everything was great, try the hush puppies too :)

The food at Zazu is consistently excellent. Their seasonal menu is varied and provides an excellent cross-section of delicious choices. Haley did a wonderful job with service. This has become our go-to choice in the Auburn/Opelika area.
