Excellent food! My husband called the filet the best steak he’d eaten in a while. My grilled fish was perfectly cooked. Sides were interesting and well done, with lots of sauces. Desserts were outstanding! We were treated well from our arrival, and it was a special evening. We’ll be back.

Amazing food! Excellent service! This is a must when visiting Augusta. A great menu, exquisite wine and spirits list. My husband had lamb ribs and they fell off bone with the best flavor, I had the crab cakes which were a delight for my senses!! We both had the chef's favorite ribeye which was filled with flavor, with just the right sear. The accompanying vegetables were just the right touch of elegant flavor. The creme brulee was delectable!! We will come back again and again to this hidden gem

I highly recommend Cadwallader’s. I had the risotto/seafood entree and it was delicious! The other three members of our party thoroughly enjoyed their meals - steak, lamb, and crab cakes. Wonderful evening!

My meal was very good. The pork chops were cooked well with an excellent taste. Service was on time and friendly service. Desert was outstanding. Scalops were great and added a great start to the meal, along with the homemade bread. They really only have one vegetarian meal and it was only ok. Maybe expand to at least 3 meals for non- meat eaters.

We have been dining at Cadwallader's for 15 years and have NEVER been disappointed; it is our "special night out" restaurant. Ambience, menu, drink menu and service are always excellent. Truly a pleasure to dine there.

Cadwalladers is the best Dining in the CSRA, Service is second to none, atmosphere is great. They have an extensive Menu and appetizers that can also be a meal. They are in business to please and i cant imagine eating there and not being satisfied. I have eaten in restaurants worldwide and this is without a doubt my favorite.

We haven’t been to Cadwalladers in years (not really sure why), however we will be back. We enjoyed a superb meal, quiet atmosphere and excellent service. We used open table for our reservation and had no issues. I’m thankful for a place that offers wonderful and elegant dining. Great job!

Always consistent, always superb food and service. Best steak in Augusta,
and frankly, imho, the best restaurant in Augusta. Great menu choices. Always enjoy the evening
and the cozy, relaxing dinner. Wine selections are quite good, and that adds to the experience.
Thanks again for your attention to detail, and your commitment to excellence.

We dine out at least 4 times a week, typically two fine restaurants and two more casual ones. Cadwallader's is always 100% consistent with great food and exceptional service. I've never seen them have a bad day. Best steak in Augusta, hands down (tried them all and no contest), and also good selections if you're in mood for fish, lamb, pork, whatever. Good selection of wines that are perfect with meals, and reasonable. Atmosphere is romantic and very nice for quiet meal and pleasant conversation. Great beer selections too. Make reservations a few days ahead because it's popular and they fill up fast. Going out on a limb and boldly saying it's the best restaurant in Augusta area (and that includes the supposed hot spot on Broad Street which I continually find underwhelming when visiting with friends)......the other two or three "best" in Augusta, while I like, enjoy, and patronize too, are overrated for food, imho, with less great entrees to choose from. Because of that I believe Cadwallader's has no equal.

This was our first visit to Cadwalladers and our last. We made an early reservation at 6 to celebrate our anniversary to miss the crowd and not feel rushed. We did indeed miss the crowd as the restaurant was empty except for three others two-somes. Instead of seating us at a real table as the few others were; we were sat at a mini 3x3 table next to the waiter station. Not only would small children be cramped, the non movable chair was very uncomfortable. Other couples arriving after us were allowed to sit at adult tables but I guess we didn't make the cut.
The food was hit and miss. My wife's Ceaser salad was very good with a great anchovy flavor. I had the crab cakes who's saving grace was the mango salsa. The wife had the New York strip which was overcooked; with asparagus and blue cheese potatoes that are both very good. I had the parmesan shrimp and scallop risotto which was excellent, definitely the high point of the visit. Desert is not my forte but the strawberry shortcake meringue (the actual name escapes me) was very tasty. The writing of happy anniversary on the plate was nice of the staff. My wife enjoyed the wine selection; so that was a plus for her as well.
Overall it was not an experience that we felt was worthy of the occasion or the pricing. We took a shot on an unknown (to us) primarily based on wanting to try a new venue and the close location to our home in Evans. Expensive lesson to learn.

Very pleasant and quiet with friendly and attentive service. Food was all excellent. Menu is rather limited and we checked before going on their website and saw they were serving halibut but found when we got there that the menu on-line had not been updated and there was no halibut that night which was a disappointment. Overall one of the best restaurants we have found in Augusta (we are recent arrivals to the area).

We have known Mary and Colden for about 30 years (we do not live in Augusta any more) and after being away more than 20 years were pleasantly surprised to see the restaurant which had started as a hospitable, comfortable deli grown into a beautiful, still hospitable, full restaurant. Their food is surpassed only by their friendship. We have tried to time our travel from Birmingham, AL so that we can enjoy a delicious dining experience with them. Please don't miss dining at one of Augusta's finest restaurants, if you haven't had the opportunity.

We had reservation, yet we were set in an extremely small booth.....next to an old door that was nasty . Also my husband's silverware was dirty and my steak knife was falling apart. The food itself was delicious, but, the atmosphere for the price of the food was way under par. Don't think I'll be back.

Always at the top of our list, we celebrated my wife's birthday at Cad's and had another top-notch dinner and drinks. They have one of the most well-balanced and innovative menus in Augusta, Colden is always welcoming, and we always feel like we are special (even if we aren't) when we eat there. A m\ust dine venue.

The food made the experience and made up for a lot of the other issues. The host/owner seemed frazzled and interrupted our dining experience negatively on multiple occasions. My hope is it was an off night given it was masters week. Our server was great and did her best to make it a great experience.

We were in town for The Masters and looking for a restaurant that took reservations. I was glad I found this place. It is tucked away just off of Washington but the service and food were excellent. The owner greeted us and was very welcoming. The servers and table staff did a wonderful job. We had the sea scallops appetizer on the risotto which was delicious. The 21 day, dry-aged, Alderwood salt rubbed New York Strip was prepared to perfection. The double lamb chops were also delicious. I would definitely eat here again!
