Everything was great but at 7:30 on a Saturday I wouldn't have expected for them to be sold out of so many items already.

This restaurant never disappoints ...food is always awesome, and the only place to get really good fish ...had the halibut recently, and have never had better anywhere !! Service is always top notch !! Used to be a bit noisy in main dinning area, but now much improved !! Probably the best restaurant in Augusta !! The word is out so be sure to make reservations !!

Our time at Abel Brown was mostly enjoyable. The oysters were as good as you get anywhere. I mean anywhere. We had them raw and grilled. The salads were really good. The down side came with the meals. Four of us all had the fish specials. The halibut and swordfish dinners were excellent, however, two of our party had the snapper filets. Both came out raw. Uncuttable let alone uneatable. They were quick to replace both dinners. One came back acceptable while the other one was cooked to a dried frazzle. Two excellent comp'd desserts made up for a little. The real disappointing aspect was the slow service. A couple were seated next to us after we already had our drinks and were fed and out of there before we received our main course. The entire dinner process was SLOW, over 2 1/2 hours, and it was not that busy. We will return but now know the questions to ask.

Awesome option for a high quality dinner with fresh oysters, delicious offerings, and great service and ambiance. I recommend the Imperial Oysters -- better than the shooters if you're not a fan of bloody marys and/or appreciate complex flavor combinations!

Sunday brunch at Abel Brown is always a great time. The burger is to die for. Rockefeller oysters are so good we wish we could eat them every day. Thank you for making us feel welcome.

My husband and I went there for the first time to celebrate his birthday. Our server was Lariana, and she was fantastic. Took the time to explain dishes and specials, and gave us plenty of time between appetizers and our entree so we could actually in joy everything. The food was fantastic. Definitely will be going back.

We went for my husband's birthday. We have been several times for various reasons and always had a great meal. This time we noticed that the food needed salt added. This has never been an issue before. Also, there was some fried eggplant with my dish that was absolutely distasteful- it was heavily breaded (to the point I thot it was a chicken tender) and no flavor at all- no seasoning, no salt. Hence, no taste. Otherwise, it was a great experience and we will likely be back.

We have dined at Abel Browns once a week, sometimes twice a week since we found it. The food is usually outstanding. Service is also amazing. This visit fell well below the normal. I don’t feel like we are picky people. We will go back as this visit as this was out of the norm. The salmon and halibut was Perfect. Rockefeller oysters where not hot and was lacking in taste. Waiter was not very attentive and we waited quite a long time for our food. Very unusual. Sorry for the bad report. 😢

Waiter forgot my appetizer, had to remind him to bring our coffee. He was friendly, but absentminded. Had to return the shrimp and grits because it was over salted, unedible. Oysters were great.
