Boll Weevil Cafe & Sweetery reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Overwhelmed Servers. What??
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 4/9/2013
    Upon entering the "NOT VERY BUSY" Boll Weevil Cafe, We were greeted and seated by a less than friendly hostess at a table so close to the door and the hostess stand that I was able to hear and could have greeted the next two parties that came in.I asked the hostess for a table further back in the dinning room (rememebr we are by the hostess stand) where we could have some better atmosphere other than the front door. The hostess told me that this was the only table she could seet us, because the server in this section was "next". Her words were "if I seat too many tables in one sections it will overwhelms the server." Are you kidding me? We sat down waited for 10 mins for service of ANY kind. We finally left, dissapointed!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    This restaurant has gone down hill in terms of food and service. It took almost 30 minutes to get our lunch (and it was not even crowded) and then the register broke down and the waitress couldn't get us our check. She was very nice and professional; the slow service was not her fault. There was nothing special about the food. As it took so long to get our food, we did not get any of the sweets. I won't go back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 12/1/2012
    Only go here for dessert! We were placed at a small table for 4, everyone had their salad/soup plus we ordered an appetizer-with drinks the table was crammed and there was no room for "sharing" plates. The main dish was out before we finished our appetizers and when food was tasted the rice and beans were refrigerator cold but the meat was hot. The waiter took the food back to the kitchen where they heated the rice-but did not remake the meat. This probably wouldn't have been too big of an issue except two people ordered the same meal and they couldn't tell us whose was whose. They comped the meal that we didn't eat-and served us wonderful desserts that we paid for. Desserts were wonderful.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/18/2012
    Our order consisted of: fried green tomatoes, apple topped chops with a house salad, Havana chicken with potato soup, & strawberry cake. The fgt were good, but nothing to rave about. The tomatoes would have been better with more crisp & if they were homegrown! House salad & potato soup arrived after the main meal, so this was barely touched. The apple pork chops with feta and Havana chicken was really good & moist, but not much of it!! As for the environment, I didn't like it. It had so much more potential. The booths are very bad seating. I ended up leaning against the far wall just to keep comfortable. If you go here, stay away from the booths or bring a pillow!

    We had a group of 4 for dinner. For appetizer, we shared the Fried Green Tomatoes and Spinach Dip. Both were fantastic. We tried the Seafood Bisque and Tomato Apple soups. The Seafood Bisque was very good. The Tomato Apple really just tasted like a chunkier Campbell's tomato soup, you couldn't really tell they were apples instead of tomatoes. Our table ordered the Curious George, the Lumberg Club, the Jambalaya, and Havana Chicken. Everyone was happy with their meal. The bread on the sandwiches was amazing. We got desert to go, since we were stuffed from our meals. We tried the Red Velvet Cake and the Key Lime Pie. The Red Velvet Cake was amazing. The Key Lime Pie was good, but a little too sugary and not tart enough.

    I needed a place to meet up with dear friends where we could visit while our kids could be kids (ages 5 to 14) and the food was not fried. Tasty, reasonably priced meals with ridiculously large, delicious cakes! The fountain outside and close proximity to the river walk were a bonus! Oh, and the server was friendly and treated us very well - even was great with the kids.

  • Fabuloua desserts!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/5/2012
    We went to the Boll Weevil in an effort to find a family friendly non-chain restaurant in Augusta. Bottom line--save room for desserts, they are fabulous. We had the chocolate cake with the cheese cake in the middle (called 7th heaven I think) and it was superb. We also had the fire roasted fugi apple tomato soup which was very tasty. My husband liked his burger and our son liked the gumbo. The restaurant is in an old cotton warehouse which had numerous fires. The old, old beams are charred so it has a very interesting vibe. The levee next to the restaurant has a lovely brick walkway so after the fabulous desserts you can take a walk!

    I would refer the Boll Weevil as eclectic. It was small with several different rooms, but felt very friendly. It had a limited menu, but I thought the food was good, especially the dessert, which it is noted for. The waiter was efficient and the service was good and timely. We will go back again.

    I always love looking for the little home town places when traveling and this is just that. It is set off of downtown and in a perfect spot for tourist but it looks also like a place the locals will go. The price was amazing for the food. I would have paid more for what I got because it was so delicious. The waitress was really nice and friendly.

    The entrées were decent, but nothing too memorable. Also, the service was lacking. Server wasn't knowledgable about the wines or the beer they carried. On the positive side, the dessert was unbelievable. I would recommend going elsewhere for dinner, then hitting this spot for dessert!

    Boll Weevil Cafe & Sweetery provided a nice relaxed touch with tasty food. I especially enjoyed the tomato apple soup. My server mentioned that it was her favorite soup and that people either loved or hated it. I asked to sample it, received a sample from our server, and then proceeded to finish it in no time! We bought sandwiches that we enjoyed. Oh yeah, we sampled the fried green tomatoe appetizer. Be sure to get it! We took home (which was about 3 hours away) two normal slices of cake - Hummingbird and Lemon something. They are moist, not too sugary, and yummy.

    It is fairly simple: Skip the dinner menu and go straight to desserts. Shrimp and grits were OK, but bland. Steak looked like it was straight off a buffet line. Chicken and spinach sandwich was tasteless and terrible. Server was marginally attentive, but not very knowledgeable. Desserts, however, were top shelf. From the 7th Heaven to the strawberry cake, the sweets make the place worth a visit - after you eat dinner somewhere else.

    This establishment is so blah. It has absolutely no ambiance. It is decorated to the bare minimum. Bare tables; paper napkins with very cheap silverware.

    My husband & I stopped overnight in Augusta the evening after we got married almost seven years ago. We ate dinner at the Boll Weevil on the recommendation of a friend, so it has happy memories for us. When we recently revisited the Boll Weevil, the hostess was delighted to seat us in the same place. If the food is great, the desserts are legendary. When I posted a picture on Facebook, I was inundated with comments from others who had dined there. My sister remarked that it made her wish that she could teleport a piece of cake! If you like "off the beaten path" type of places, this is a gem you shouldn't miss when you're in Augusta.
