I had two glasses of wine and a crab cake appetizer. The peppers in the crab cake were undercooked, but I'd be willing to come back and try something else on the menu. Great service at the bar. Ask for Britney!

The manager is great and even remembered us from 2 weeks ago. The music is much more low key on Sundays so we enjoyed the experience.

The seafood was delicious and cocktails strong but the live jazz is what sold me. Definitely will visit again and bring a few friends

First time visiting this restaurant with my daughter and my husband. We really enjoyed our meal although I thought it was a bit overpriced.

Great restaurant for lunch, dinner, and brunch. They have menu items for your meat eaters, pescatarians, and vegetarians. They also have live music on Fri and a dj (and bottomless mimosas) on Sat.

My friend and I stopped by after looking at all the reviews. We weren’t greeted and seated right away. We stood around for about 7 minutes. The food was great but the location isn’t the best. Also the establishment could’ve been a little neater. Our waiter was great and the hostess was friendly.

10 out of 10 on the crab leg boil $40 at market price and they probably had almost 3 pounds on the plate. Chicken wing and calamari appetizers were spot on. Fresh not too salty. Ambiance is not why you go here; the food and service IS.

We got of to a rocky start - super slow and unfortunately unorgananized wine took forever and then we didn’t have glasses it just took too long - luckily everyone enjoyed their meal - came through in the end but guests shouldn’t have to rally the team for service.

Service was slow. Took 15 minutes for someone to realize we we sitting at the table. Out of menu items, plastic dishes, and server was not very complementary of the food on the menu. Last but not least my menu had sauce on the pages. Would not recommend for out of towners

The food was awesomeness! We went Saturday and doubled back again Sunday. Drinks were superb as well. Service was great. I highly recommend the gumbo, fried salmon, seafood omelet, and build our way waffle.

The hostess were very pleasant and welcoming upon entering the establishment. I have visited this restaurant several times in the past. The food was delicious, but this time I had a different experience. I made reservations this time for my birthday. I must say, the food was disappointing. For an appetizer, we order the seafood nachos. The nachos were too salty so they were sent back. As my entree, I ordered the crab cakes. I was very disappointed in the quality. They weren’t fresh and the ingredients seemed to be different than what I was use to.

Again the service was outstanding. Brittany was friendly and patience. My date was 40 minutes late and Brittany continually checked on me to make sure I'm ok. The food was delicious and plentiful. I look forward to my next visit!!!

Amazing ambiance!
Spent about $60 for dinner , desert , and alcoholic beverage.
Attentive staff & beautiful live music!
My friend and I sat near the back by the window for a nice street view and we were still able to hear ourselves talk over the music.
Definitely going back😋

The waitress kept reminding us that we had a 2 hour window so we felt rushed. My reservation was at 9:15 I got there at 9:20
The food was amazing ambiance was great.
I would recommend to a friend but I hate that we felt rushed

We were celebrating our anniversary and wanted to enjoy live music with dinner. I called a couple of days in advance and was told there would be a live band starting at 9 pm and that it was a great place to celebrate the occasion. Our reservation was at 9:15. Upon arrival, there was no band. We asked when would the band start and was told they "didn't think the band was coming tonight". We were highly disappointed but felt like it was too late to try to find somewhere else to go, so we stayed. The food was good, not really worth the price but I feel like the live music would've made it worth it. I don't think I'll return any time soon.

We made reservations for party of 6 and was seated quickly. Our server was Pinto who did an excellent job. The food wasn't spectacular but the experience was wonderful. Heads up for large parties, you'll be charged a 20% gratuity. We went on a Sunday so parking on the street was free. Overall a good experience

First time dining here and I took my son. I loved the atmosphere, the music, the drinks, and the food. It wasn't crowded, so we only waited a few minutes to be seated. Only complaints I have are the time we waited for our food and the gumbo was very cold.

This was my first time at Sweet Auburn Seafood. I also had family in town for the weekend. We absolutely loved the experience. The food was simply amazing! The service was great. However, I did not give our server all 5s because he forgot a drink and an appetizer for two of my family members. But his overall service was great. He is human. I would strongly recommend everything on the menu! I really think you all should bring back the Eggplant Lasagne ❤️
