"It was amazing to be transported into another place like this. Great decoration and the lighting had a fabulous ambiance. Truly romantic. The outside entrance could have used a pick up with beer cans on the ground. Our host was so personable! And the food was exquisitely cooked and had immaculate presentation. There was teamwork within the staff especially with the host quickly clearing our empty plates and refilling our drinks - we thought he was our server. Our waitress tended to us well enough but dissappeared and a check never arrived. The dining room became unbearably hot as my husband had to leave to get air in the car. I finally got attention after I placed my credit card on the table as I waited 15 minutes for our waitress to come back. It was obvious that she had no sense of urgency as she took my card and tended to another table. The dining room because a little rowdy with a party across the way but that didn't quite bother us. It was still a great time and would recommend to anyone."See more
"Last week my wife and I were back at Sheehan's for the third week in a row---
it's becoming a habit, but for good reason.
We dine out 4-5 nights per week, a couple of fine dining ones and a couple of casual ones.
Might rightly call us foodies. We are pretty selective and discriminating in our tastes,
and we remain so when we are traveling.
Decided that Sheehan's is now easily our favorite spot in Augusta. Maybe 4 or 5 other places we like that are close, but Sheehan's does EVERYTHING right every time--- biggest part of that is the BEST FOOD.
And Sheehan's serves the meals HOT and within 15-20 minutes, perfectly presented, and consistently does so.
Flavors are superb, textures right, everything well executed.... and sides are creative and perfectly matched.
For comparison, there's an over-hyped restaurant "somewhere downtown", and after having been there
5 or 6 times now, I remain underwhelmed. I keep trying, really, but to no avail. I don't like waiting 75 minutes for my food, or hearing long pretentious diatribes regarding "specials".....(hey, Tilefish may stay one of your specials for two MORE years as it has been, but it's NOT special unless you do something special with it---and it's boring at best!!!!). Everything falls flat when the food and timely service don't measure up.
In their wildest dreams they don't have anything that comes close to Sheehan's food, like Sheehan's Swordfish, or like the Shrimp over Grits Cake, just to name two. Both amazing meals, and there are more. And they're great every time, and "on time".
Sheehan's, simply put, hits on all points, and they are not pretentious! Great mid-level wines, too, which is what we usually do. Special events we prefer to do better. And the superior service is a constant.
In Augusta, another great place off Davis Rd, 3 great ones in Surrey, another off mid-Central Ave., so I'm sticking with those on rotating basis when the mood strikes, but it'll be Sheehan's at the TOP. Great job!"See more
