Great food, wonderful service. The dress code was not enforced which accounts for my overall rating.

Having dined at Able Brown many times before, I've had the chicken quite a bit, however this time the chicken had a crispy skin that was so salty it was like biting into a salt block. All of the other dishes and drinks were fantastic though! Love the ribeye, halibut, oysters, and scallops.

The ambulance service and food are very good. I ordered the spring chicken and was a little bit disappointed by the sides which were supposed to be okra and what I thought would be a small amount of onion. Apparently this is a low carb dish Which meant there was a huge pile of onion and I honestly never saw any okra. I think it was served more as a scraping to accent the dish which was a disappointment to me. But the chicken was excellent the red is very good and the salads were top notch. I will definitely go back but would ask for a substitute on the side

Just an absolutely great experience, as always. We were so happy with our meals (fried duck leg - highly recommended by the server and absolutely phenomenal dish). Our server was sweet, friendly, and helpful and everyone in the restaurant was attentive. Also truly appreciated that masks were required when in the restaurant other than seated, even though some patrons were less strict about it.

We had four people in our party, all of whom ordered something different. The good news is that everyone was very pleased with the dishes that they ordered. The oyster selection is outstanding to say the least.
Our server did a marvelous job for my table even accommodating tasting request from the bar of their microbrews.
I put this experience down as one of the top three restaurants in Augusta and a little pricy but I highly recommend Abel Brown's.

I would recommend the raw oysters (especially the ones from Virginia), and I would recommend the drinks and dessert. Our main entrees were "ok" (not bad, but certainly not the best we've had).

Nice evening out with my sisters to celebrate a birthday. Excellent service (Betsy was our server) and delicious food options. Great appetizers along with a “to die for” Key-lime pie in a mason jar for dessert! Highly recommend Abel Brown.

Not very good, and not really trying. Go to Edgar's or Cadwaller's. The Shrimp and Grits were, well, some shrimp on top of some grits - technically correct, I suppose, but not really what we mean by Shrimp and Grits. The ribeye, advertised as the best steak we will ever taste, wasn't even the best I had this week. Either to to Texas Roadhouse FOUR times or add about $7 and go to Ruth's Chris. The Salmon a neighboring party was having was reportedly very good and certainly looked it. We didn't try the Oysters, as this is another of the apparently endless number of of fern bars serving exotic, pedigreed (meaning from places like Maryland and Massachusetts) oysters for the low, low price of $2-$4 each. For the price of a good oyster binge at these places, I can fly to the Gulf, buy a bushel and shuck my own.

We do a lot of traveling and try and find different cool places to eat. Abel Brown did not disappoint the food was delicious, the cocktail list was intriguing and what we had was well crafted, our server Blake was awesome, we highly recommend requesting him. If you find yourself in Augusta you should definitely try Abel Brown, we are already trying to figure out a return trip!
