Abel Brown is my go to for a celebratory dinner. I was really disappointed they no longer gave creme brûlée, but everything else was perfect. I would come every weekend just for a Bloody Mary oyster shooter.

Great place for a nice dinner or night out with friends. Loved the wine choices, the bacon crusted salmon and the Johnny Cake appetizer with pimento cheese. The shrimp and grits also looked great. Nataly, our server, was awesome.

Great meal with relatives visiting from out of town. Thought the waitress should have mentioned that the Haddock I ordered would be coming out whole from head to tail. It was quite a shock to see my food looking directly at me when it was served. LOL
Flavor of my fish was quite tasty but I would not have ordered fish had I known that the bones would be intact with the meat. On the minor side, the bar had run out of Bulleit Bourbon and my cousin chose a wine off the wine list that they couldn't find. Again, overall the meal and atmosphere was pleasing to all and my relatives enjoyed my choice of restaurants.

Great food. Fish was great. Avoid shrimp and grits. You’ll spend 5-10 minutes taking off tails and cut up the sausage.

I had halibut my daughter salmon which she said best she every had and I agree. My Halibut was perfectly done. Great flavor. I also had oyster very fresh. I will return and highly recommend.

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.
