Great experience from the time we walked in, until we left! We had friends that came with us as well and they enjoyed themselves. The waitress was pleasant and knowledgeable. The food was really good. I especially loved the macaroni and cheese dish. When we returned home, we shared our experience with other friends who are local. I would recommend this restaurant. Great place for a first date or just a date night with the spouse.

Can't recommend this place enough. Were in town for Peach Jam tournament and had two fantastic meals here. Innovative dishes, locally sourced produce with a southern flair. Great wine at good value. Warm and cheerful service. Highly recommend it!

Was a lovely evening celebrating my birthday and the start of our vacation! Our waitress was amazing. Just the right amount of conversation...she was prompt on every level. Was so sweet to gift us with a complimentary dessert! She knew it was the first and last restaurant we dined at while in Augusta ♥️ Thank you!

Frog Hollow never fails me...brought the family here to celebrate my daughter's birthday and everything was wonderful, as always. The drinks were delicious, the risotto was perfection, our waiter, Cory, was never far and always anticipatory of our needs and I can't wait to go back.

Great food and professional service. Certainly a win in a town like Augusta.

Having said that, I made reservations and they sat us right at the front door. ASK FOR THE DINING AREA. We sat a bit before water showed up (or our pre-order drinks as we waited 5 mi. or so on arrival... not awful, but not ideal for having reservations on a week night).

Once we got properly seated, service was superior and food was exceptional. Craft cocktails were outstanding and selection is great.

At the end of the day, go for it.

We had a wonderful dinner! My food, Shrimp and Grits, was so good. My husband ordered the ribeye. He said it was tasty but tough. Also, he ordered it medium rare. It was overdone - really medium. We also had the heirloom tomato salad that was excellent.

This is a difficult review because we are big fans of Frog Hollow and have recommended it to many people. However, the total failure of customer service Saturday night warrants a poor review. I made the reservation through Open Table and specifically noted that it was a birthday. Once seated, I mentioned at least twice to our server that it was my wife’s birthday. On the second mention, he said Oh, it’s your birthday? As we watched other tables near us receive a birthday dessert with candle, we hoped at some point my wife would receive a similar recognition. Unfortunately, it never came. The server apparently failed to recognize that our special event was special. The worst violation, however, occurred when we left. I mentioned to the hostess that we were disappointed in the dismissal of the birthday. She wanted my name so she could confirm my Open Table special instruction. She frowned as she confirmed the special instruction and then said my complaint was duly noted. That’s it-not even an apology. Really? This is how you treat a regular customer in a fine restaurant? While our food was excellent, the fact is that dining at the Frog Hollow is supposed to be a complete experience. Arrogantly dismissing a legitimate complaint is simply unacceptable at any restaurant. You are the best restaurant in Augusta because of your food quality and usually good service. Please don’t lose sight of the importance of both.

It was really noisy. I could barely hear my waitress describing the specials - which she ran through quickly like she was in a big rush. Food was very good. Service was fine. I guess I'm picky, but I didn't get that subtle impression that I expect from a fine dining place, where they act like they have nothing to do but ensure your happiness in every detail. The whole place felt busy. Food was very good, though.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Frog Hollow Tavern. The food was excellent as was our server, Lindsey. We had the mussels appetizer and the ribeye and fish entrees. Everything was prepared excellently including the sides. None of the desserts was to my liking so we did not get dessert. We had plenty of food and did not walk out hungry. My husband finished his steak but said he was very full due to it being so big. We will definitely go back.

The food was exceptional and so was the service. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because my mother and husband did not enjoy their meals as much as I enjoyed mine. Also, my husband had to ask for another side to replace his fries because they were too salty. However, my meal was absolutely what I was hoping for.

We arrived before our son and since the bar was full, we were advised to have a seat and a cocktail server would be right with us. Sure enough, a cheery young man arrived within minutes and presented us with a drinks menu and then delicious and interesting cocktails. We were seated near the kitchen and found the noise level a little distracting but not overwhelming. The pork and steak dishes were excellent, however my fish tasted a little too fishy which was unexpected and a little disappointing. We alerted Frog Hollow Tavern beforehand that we'd be there for our son's birthday, and the servers acknowledged it from the time we sat down to the nicely printed "Happy Birthday Caleb" card but no birthday treats were offered. All in all, it's a very good restaurant and feels special.

We were sat near a particularly loud table, but other than that everything else was excellent. The waitress we had was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about both the food and drinks on the menu. The food was absolutely delicious. They are a bit on the higher price end, but worth every bit of it.

We had an 8:45 reservation and weren't seated until 9:30 to eat dinner. There were no substitutions allowed for dietary restrictions - so we ended up each having the same vegan dish - but it was very tasty. We did not leave until after 11pm which was far later than we wanted to be out eating. We would have preferred to have better communication up front from the staff letting us know the timetable and our options for sitting at the bar or pre-ordering or something.

As always, the pork chop and smoked Gouda Mac & cheese were perfect and the best I’ve ever had. The pork chop came with a jalapeño cornbread croutons salad that was very different from anything I’ve had as a side dish and was awesome! Highly recommended if it’s on the menu. The duck sausage was just ok.

This my favorite restaurant! Every minute of our evening and every bite of food was exceptional. Our server was Rebecca and she was super attentive and knowledgeable. I ordered the Tavern Manhattan which was amazing! we also shared a bottle of Cab, which was not unreasonable in cost. Definitely try the fried okra appetizer. We tried 4 entrees at our table and each was delicious. The crab cake special was generous in portion and amazing! The pork chop and pork shoulder were both delicious (I think they are known for their pork), and my favorite was the shrimp and grits. Don't forget to order the mac&cheese (voted the best in the south!) - a unique take. I have tried 5 of the desserts. The goat cheese cheesecake was my favorite - a generous slice topped with fresh berries - such a rich flavor! Take your friends, take out of town guests - Frog Hollow will not disappoint!
