Acre in Andersonville

I finally got to try Acre, previously Charlie’s Ale House in Andersonville and was pleasantly surprised with the metamorphosis.

The menu still has comfort food, but the kitchen exhibits a bit more culinary flair. While beef burgers can be ordered, we were more intrigued by the pork burger with strawberry jam. Mac and cheese was decorated with bacon. A chicken sandwich came with sorrel mayo. The stand-out dish was an appetizer of deviled eggs, each half with a small finger of smoked trout draped with a red pimiento. I felt my cholesterol levels rising with each delicious bite.

Mike, our fantastic waiter highly recommended the chocolate cake with stout frosting. That’s right, a beer dessert. To be consumed next time.
