Excellent food and service! They honored our request for a specific table. The wait staff were very efficient, everyone pitching in where there was a need without asking. The food at Able Brown is always top notch!

We celebrated our first wedding anniversary Saturday night at the same beautiful table where we had our first ever date. The attentive staff took wonderful care of us and the chefs created a memorable night of truly inspired food. Abel Brown is our very special place! Another night to remember!

Food tasted great for the most part. I didn't care for the pairing of nuts in my rice, I felt it clashed. Also food was a tad pricey. That being said, they have a great atmosphere, amazing wine list, and food choices you won't see anywhere else.

Hit and miss. Food was very good but service and food delivery was extremely slow. The manager did acknowledge the food delivery delays; positive and proactive. No explanation of delay. One drink order took about 20 minutes to receive the drink. Hostess was very accommodating to increase party size so kudos for that.

I continue to go to Abel Brown as their menu is good, service can be very good, and food preparation can be good. It is just not consistent, with more good times than less than good times.

Best meal that we have had start to finish in Augusta. The staff were warm and welcoming. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations throughout the evening. The food was the star of the restaurant though. Oysters were phenomenal...we had the broiled with parmesan and jalapeño. We enjoyed a variety of seafood specials including the crab cake and calamari. Both were incredible, but the crab cake was one of the best Ive ever had. Salad was fresh. Ribeye cooked a perfect medium rare. The chocolate bread pudding finished the meal perfectly. I would recommend this restaurant to a anyone.

Great food and service! Our server was very knowledgeable about the different types of oysters they offered. We ordered our steak medium, and it was definitely cooked well-done, but tasted wonderful anyway. Would definitely return.

Our waitress Victoria could not have been nicer or more professional. Oysters are why we keep coming back - great selection and fresh. The Heirloom Lettuces were a perfect complement, unique, crisp, delicious. The Shrimp & Grits were the best we've had - sweet GA shrimp sure helps, but the preparation was light and tasty, and the grits alone were the best we've had. Will always dine here when in Augusta!

Our waiter was very attentive to our needs and wants, and we were especially delighted to notice that he poured water into our glasses the most sanitary way. By that I mean chilled water without ice cubes was poured from the bottle into the glass without having the bottle and glass ever making contact. Very good!

Three of our party enjoyed the salmon made with bacon and I loved the halibut dinner entree. My husband and I split a yummy beet salad, which was served to us in individual plates. Very classy!

We had a pretty long wait for our appetizer and meals, but otherwise, everything was great! Our server was incredibly nice and gave us a free dessert as an apology for our wait. I cannot wait to come back!

Everything is excellent, except for ALWAYS having to wait 15 minutes to get seated. Even with reservations, and regardless if you show up 10 minutes early, or 10 minutes late, you will ALWAYS have to wait an additional 15 to 20 minutes to get seated.

Best place in Augusta to eat by far hands down! We have been many times and the food is always fantastic. We have NEVER had anything on the menu that was disappointing and we have had just about everything on the menu! If you haven’t been, you must go!!!!
