Cudo's to the chef and wait staff! Service was great and the food was good! Only thing I would change is the playfulness of the floor staff. Abel Brown gets two thumbs up!

This was my second visit to Abel Brown's, both on a weeknight. Food was excellent on both occasions. Kitchen is very flexible with special requests. AB's is my new favorite special occasion restaurant in Augusta.

This is our favorite special occasion spot. The secret is to go early enough in the evening to get their specials. They are always the best choices in the restaurant. Menu items are good too, but their specials really shine. They run out later in the evening, so try and get a reservation around 6-630 if you can. Oysters are generally good, depending on what they have in stock that evening. The smoked wings are unique and salty and delicious. We’ve been a handful of times now and never had a bad experience.

We had a large group and everyone really enjoyed their meal. The halibut special was delicious and the smoked ribeye surprisingly worked :) best of the night had to go to the Blueberry Cinnamon Buttermilk Sorbet.

Great food! I tried to eat here a year ago and was very upset. It took two and half hours to get our food for a party of four and the food was ice cold. I gave it another try and was pleased. Great food and service.

Greeting was very nice, food was good for most of us, service was acceptable, but our server was not pleasant, probably a bad evening or something else, just not willing to please the customers.
The atmosphere was noisy but bearable.

We reserved Standard Seating but we were given a HighTop table at the bar instead. It appeared that availability through Open Table was not correct. They then also did not serve the appetizer we ordered - it was listed on our bill but they did at least then remove the charge when I pointed it out.

Best Shrimp and Grits in town. We love going here for special occasions. The service is always great and the food delish. I like ordering from their specials when I stray away from the shrimp and grits. The desserts are always divine as well.

Abel Brown is the best restaurant in Augusta. They have a terrific selection of delicious raw oysters. The beet salad is my favorite. Try a side of yummy collard greens.

Didn’t get to eat there because they sat us at a table in the corner near the kitchen and near a very loud obnoxious group of girls. so we left because they didn’t have a table open although we saw several that just needed cleared or were “Reserved”.

Food was delicious! Ordered the scallop special. Scallops were cooked perfectly. Not a huge serving, so there was room for dessert, key lime pie in a jar. PERFECTION! Server was very knowledgeable of specials and made good wine recommendations.Highly recommend the drink special (this dog can hunt?). Raw oyster appetizer with mignonette sauce, excellent..

Came here for a date with my girlfriend. We started with some Oyster Rockfeller's which were great. She got a porkchop with mac & cheese and collard greens. She said her greens were the best thing she has eaten in awhile. I got the ribeye which tasted like butter. We ended the night with the chocolate bread pudding which is amazing.

It was ok. Delivery of incorrect entrees to start and then finally correct entre was delivered. Ribeye was very undercooked, sent it back and watched my wife eat on her own. The ribeye was not worth 38 dollars so a bit lacking on value as well.

We had a gift card to AB from friends we had taken to AB last March. Very pleased to say a year and a renovation later, AB’s food and service hasn’t changed one bit. The food is always amazing and the service is impeccable! It is probably our number 1 favorite restaurant in Augusta.
