Table was ready when we arrived. Service was outstanding. Food was great as usual. Still a little noisy to have a conversation. If you need a little extra room at the table don’t get a booth. Still probably the best restaurant in Augusta.

Sent oysters back & they still wasn’t roasted right, they still tasted raw. We had them two other visits & they was roasted to perfection. I will not be ordering them again! Such a bad experience!

Not sure if it’s because they just reopened or what but the food was above average for anywhere else but not as good as the last 2 years we have been coming. Emily has been our waitress every time as well and she is always fantastic. I love the service and the atmosphere.. No matter what my husband and I would still come back any chance we get.

Reservation was for 8, didnt get sat until 8:45. We arrived at 7:45. We were served frozen bread, and when we told the manager, he was nonchalant about it. We were served soup with no spoons, literally drank from a bowl. We would've asked for spoons if the server ever came back to the table. They forgot our wine, and my husband's beer 3 times. We will never go back. Not worth the money.

My husband and I visited Abel Brown prior to visiting the Miller Theatre and had one of the greatest meals we've had! All of the oysters were delicious (the spicy jalapeno are the best)! Hunter was our server and he was amazing. He recommended the perfect bottle of wine to complement our choices and was extremely attentive. I had the filet cooked perfectly while my husband loved their smoked ribeye. Next time I'm in Augusta, I will definitely be returning!

My steak was seasoned very good, I had to get it cooked more because it was mr instead of mw, when it came back my fingerlings were gone. The greens were tuff and stringy. My husband pork chop was good and my steak was too. I felt tricked when asked if we wanted the salad or soup (did not know it doesn’t come with it, 9.00 extra) my steak was 42 so that ended up being 51 pricey. For 2- 148 before tip. Lobster rolls 22.00 , we do t mind splurging but thought to much for that. We have gone to other places that were good but not that much. Our bread pudding was great! We will go again but not regularly.

We have frequent Abel Brown’s many many many times and have raved about the food and it has been our recommendation over other nice restaurants. Yet, this time we were entertaining a guest and was very disappointed. The lobster appetizers were simply lobster in a hotdog roll, very bland taste, the butternut squash soup was good but our entrees were not to the standard of Abel Brown’s.
We assumed Todd was not working that night, otherwise our food would have been to the expectation we are accustomed too.
We invite a phone call to explain more.

Kira was wonderful and my girlfriend had an amazing birthday! I ordered pulled pork and changed the sides which was not an issue at all- tasted amazing. Kayla got the filet which was one of the specials that night and devoured it. Taylor, the manager, came by and was so sweet. One of the best restaurants in Augusta. Make a reservation tho because it can get packed.

I brought my wife for our anniversary so I was ok with spending a little extra on the food. It was worth it for the service, out of the ordinary menu items, exceptionally prepared cuisine, ambiance and the have great oyster menu, seafood and cocktails if you're into that.

They also gave us a creme brulee on the house because it was our anniversary which was very nice especially because we like to experience new things on our date and we never had it as well as it was our first time at A.B.

Dinner before show. First waiter brought a wine that was not correct. Then we changed and he broke the cork off and struggled to get it open. Then when he poured for taste he spilled all over glass. I had to ask to have a fresh glass brought. Then knowing we were trying to get out to get to a show. He wa slow. Food was excellent but waiter need to be canned for this type of service.
