    The title speaks for itself. If you want to enjoy and impress someone in Augusta, GA, you bring them Frog Hollow. The staff is completely on their A game. Excellent flavor with an excellent twist on old recipes like mac and cheese or collard greens. The entree was superb.

    We went to the Frog Hollow Tavern to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Nick was our server and he was wonderful. Having never been to the Frog Hollow before, we asked Nick for recommendations. My husband is an insulin diabetic and Nick was good to inform us of what dishes would have carbs that we needed to keep in mind. They had a special on the small plate (appetizer/salad size) and it was a Duck cake. It was wonderful! We are both partial to crab cakes but I think I liked the Duck cake even better! My husband had the Andouille Sausage and really enjoyed it as well. My husband had the Frogmore Stew and enjoyed it. I had the Cowgirl Ribeye and it was fabulous! The atmosphere at the Frog Hollow is a bit noisy but we did not expect it to be a very quiet place with it also being a tavern. It would be really nice if they did have a quieter dining area for special occasions or for those requesting a quieter setting. We absolutely will return to the Frog Hollow. We were very glad our friends suggested it. I cannot rate some of the categories above simply because we have not been there for brunch or lunch, don't drink wine or alcohol and did not dine outside.

    We have been to Frog Hollow several times. The food is always incredible! The staff is always attentive and very pleasant. The noise is louder than I prefer but when your food is that good, the crowds come. And when the crowds come, you have the noise. It is totally worth it! As always, very pleased with our evening!

    Went for our Anniversary. The food and service was excellent. The only complaint I would have is that I requested ahead a time a table away from a noisy, heavy traffic area so we could enjoy each other/conversation. We were seated in an area that had a wedding party- which became quite loud and lively. This would not deter me from going back, again the food was excellent, just wish they would have taken my request into account- there were other areas available.

    Relaxed dining, delicious food, will definitely return. The service was friendly, professional and well timed. The Shrimp & Grits were delicious as was the steak. The andouille sausage (made in house) appetizer was some of the best we have eaten. Gluten free friendly and knowledgeable staff. Look forward to dining here again.

    Each of us ordered different entrees and raves to the cowgirl ribeye, pork shoulder, and tilefish. The wreck fish was a disappointment but all side dishes were delicious. The soup and salads were a great beginning to a wonderful meal. Our server was terrific and I'm sorry I can't remember his name. The prices were somewhat high, so it might be difficult for some to enjoy the restaurant except for special occasions.

    I took my daughter & her boyfriend to celebrate her 17th birthday. I feel like we all got a gift. From the moment we stepped in, we were impressed. We were seated immediately & our waiter staff took our drink order within moments. The variety in the concise menu was impressive. While my daughter & her date quickly settled on a steak with frites, I salivated over the selections for some time. Just when I thought I'd made the decision, our server ran down the specials. I was immediately drawn to the appetizer of broiled oysters (a Frog Hollow variation of oysters Rockerfellow that involves duck confit ) & NC tile fish over creamy risotto surrounded by a tomatoe based purée. Every morsel of our dishes were prepared to perfection & dreamy on the tongue from start to finish. Our wait staff was attentive, knowledgeable & welcoming. It is with great pride that'll I can recommend this gem to even the most discriminating foodie!

    My fiancé and I went to Frog Hollow for my birthday dinner. The food was fantastic...not only well prepared but also served properly and politely. We had advised the restaurant that it was my birthday and they served us a lovely complimentary dessert selection. I would highly recommend Frog Hollow to anyone who wants an excellent dining experience. In addition in my opinion the prices were very reasonable considering the quality of the food and service...a great value!

    Definitely different than I expected- especially the Mac and cheese that everyone recommends! It doesn't look a thing like Mac and cheese- but def delicious. Loved the Farrot...something with my steak- but the duck was amazing! The server was ok and the other staff was very nice. I would Definitely return. Our 3y/o did not accompany us, and I probably wouldn't bring her. She has been all Over the country and in many nice places, including Emeils- but this was just not a place for her. I'm Still thinking of that dinner... I'm ready for more!

    The varying menu with local goods make Frog Hollow different each time. We have enjoyed every one of our different entrees and small plates. We brought our daughter on her visit to town and she really enjoyed it. She usually doesn't each large portions; but her large pork chop disappeared to the bone! This is a really great addition to downtown Augusta.

  • One of the best meals I've had
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/5/2014
    My wife and I were in Augusta on business and had checked out reviews for this and other restaurants downtown. I made a reservation at Frog Hollow Tavern because they listed shrimp and grits on their menu and my wife loves this Southern specialty. What we got was much, much more. We were immediately seated upon arrival and warmly greeted by both reception staff and our waiter, Chris, who has an incredible breadth of knowledge about everything on the menu. Everything from the wait staff to the barrel aged cocktails, to the perfectly prepared meal (this space is too short to describe it adequately) was perfect. It was a remarkable and memorable experience which my wife and I will long treasure. Suffice it to say, we were impressed!

    I was excited to return as my previous dining experience was spectacular. But this time I was slightly disappointed. We were seated quickly since we had reservations, and our server was timely as well. We ordered a bottle of wine and the Eggplant Fries appetizer. The eggplant fries, IMO, were very greasy and I barely tasted the eggplant. For entrees, I ordered the NC Swordfish and my husband got the duck breast. We also got a side of the Gouda mac and cheese, which was my favorite part of the meal. My Swordfish was a bit dry so I don't know if it rested too long after plating (the ratatouille wasn't hot). The taste was still good, but temperature could have been better. My husband enjoyed his duck and the bite I had of it was good.

    We had one night in Augusta on our way to Atlanta and found this place on TripAdvisor when looking for a hotel. We were most impressed by the menu and made a reservation. We were not disappointed! Hannah, our server, gave us a bit of Frog Hollow's history and their food philosophy. All food is from within a 100 mile radius, the meats are cured/smoked in-house and the fantastic bread is from a local bakery. The wine list is not extensive, but adequate; Hannah was very helpful in helping us choose a wine for the meal. We would highly recommend this place to anyone.

    I've eaten here 3 times in the past 2 weeks & I always make a reservation to ask for 1 of the quieter back rooms as my husband has a hard time hearing & the bar area is too loud to enjoy a lengthy meal. We were seated (the 3 of us) in a middle room. 10 minutes later, a large party consisting of a toddler, 2 small children, & 8 loud adults were seated next to us. So much for the quiet room request! It was evident they had reservations as well b/c the table was arranged for them. My husband asked the hostess if we could move as our dinner experience was turning into a circus. She stated, after he reminded them that the reservation specifically requested 1 of the small rooms w/o large groups, that they'd "get it right next time." SERIOUSLY??

    Bacon! I would return to this restaurant solely for the house-made bacon! The wedge salad with house-made bacon, tomatoes, and house-made dressing was outstanding. The braised pork shoulder was also outstanding. The macaroni and cheese, which was highly touted, was too rich for all four of us, and we are mac n cheese connoisseurs. The shrimp and grits was the best we have ever tasted. Service was excellent. Make a reservation and enjoy this delightful restaurant.

Boys had the cowgirl ribeye...it was so good they wouldn't even share! Girls had the pork tenderloin. It was awesome, greens and mac-n-cheese were to die for. I'm a big fan of a gin and tonic, so I loved the new Malaria Fighter cocktail. Perfection!! Highly recommend. We will be back! Thanks.
