Our server, Jasmine was wonderful. Our food was less than expected. The bread was old, cold and hard. Two of us ordered the shrimp and grits which had good flavors however the grits were cold and shrimp overcooked. One of us ordered the red fish which was excellent. For the hype and prices we expected better. Disappointed.

Great selection with very good brunch selections all country style food. Great dressing, fried chicken and turkey. Not a huge fan of the pre-made dessert selection, but they tasted good. We loved the Mac ‘n cheese and the carving station as well. Every first Sunday of the month they have a buffet style brunch; the other Sundays they have all a cart options for brunch.

Hour to get our food and it was very salty and cold. Also dish did not come out per described on menu. Wine was old, cocktail was to sugary. Waiter kept apologizing for wait time and acknowledged that the dish was not prepared properly. Nice venue, but would not go back

We had reservations for morning brunch at 11:30 and we were so excited to try it because of the Master’s hype. Unfortunately, nothing went right for us. There was only one table taken when we arrived and yet we were not immediately seated. By 1:00 the place was still 90% empty, which we probably should have taken as a warning sign. We ordered Mimosas and a cheese tray to start. The mimosas were mainly OJ and it took 30 minutes for the cheese tray to arrive. The cheese tray was supposed to come with baguettes but they had no baguettes so it came with crackers. The cheese options were all cubed cheeses, no Brie or hard cheeses, and there were nowhere near enough crackers. I ordered the trout with crawfish étouffeê and was told they had no trout, only redfish. My dish came out with cold vegetables and maybe a tablespoon of crawfish étouffeé. The fish was poorly seasoned. The quality of the food did not warrant the price. I do not recommend PI’s for Sunday brunch. There are many better options.

Wait staff was under manned. Our poor server had to wait tables and bartend and take pictures for people. She (Ashley) was running around like a headless chicken trying to keep up with everything. Omelettes came out cold had to sent back for reheat so either the kitchen didn’t let her know they were ready or she was just to busy when they were ready. Most place have 2 servers when there is a large party. We had 10. I believe there were a few others that could have been helpful instead of just standing around.

We were unable to get turkey and dressing at 7pm on Thanksgiving. They were back to serving their regular menu by then. So we had lamb, rice and beans! Strangely there was no mention of this on their website. And one family of 9 somehow got turkey and all the fixings! We were not pleased with that at all. The lamb was tough, so they took half off the price. I don't know if this is unusual or not. It was not terrible, but I would not order it again.

Salmon for dinner was amazing. Beet salad too much dressing and not delicious. Coffee was too weak. Tasted like water. Server very pleasant!! Ambience felt like the old south!! Also the house Chardonnay in the penthouse bar was much better than house in restaurant.

Great service, mediocre overpriced food, grossly overpriced wine list. The meat and cheese board was expensive and VERY poor quality - basically deli meats and inedible low quality, awful cheese. Might try brunch sometime, however.

I had never been here after hearing not so great reviews, but decided to give it a try. Made the reservation 3 days ahead of time and was called 15 minutes before my reservation time to inform me that brunch didn’t start for another 45 minutes. Of course by that time I was already almost there, and no message was left. You should not be allowed to make a reservation for a time that is not open...

Patience was great sever when she was available.. disappeared often, served grits with fork. Ice cold butter with bread... shrimp and grits riddled with fat/grease from ham... was called gravy however it was more fat that gravy. Blackened chicken pasta excellent.

Even though we had a reservation for 7pm, it took around an hour and a half for us to get our food. We were only a group of 5. I complained & the restaurant only offered us a 15% discount and no apology. The food was great, the scenery beautiful, but the service was horrible.

Me and my daughter had Father’s Day lunch we ordered appetizer/ salad/ and entree we waited one hour and twenty minutes for food to come out and it all came at one time instead of appetizer first then salad and entree’s honestly we could have gotten a much better meal at Shane’s rib shack I was highly disappointed in service and food I don’t know how they keep the doors open with this kind of food and service we just wasted over a hundred dollars on this place I will definitely never go back again.

Although our waitress, Ashley, was exceptional, we were very disappointed with our meal/s. Price must be based on historical reputation because it definitely was not reflected in the food.

Watched the Sunday round of the Masters at the bar after we had the breakfast buffet. Food at breakfast was great and the whole set up was really nice. Took a little but of time for the service to get going, but once it did everyone was very nice and it was the perfect place to watch history. People came straight from Augusta National to the bar to celebrate a great day!

The buffet did not have everything that was advertised on the buffet menu ie crab claws.
The bone in rib eye was the worst rib eye that I have had in a long time and certainly disappointed with a $43 price take. The creamed spinach was very soupy and not good and the portion size was very small for $10.

Felt the food and service was poor. Part cooked lobster- not good! Hummus with nothing to dip. We were seated in an overflow room that had 2 tables so atmosphere was zero . To top it all we were frozen, air con was too cold. Not a good experience.

Highly recommend. Went with my dad during the masters. They had an excellent buffet and our waitress made us feel right at home, she even took the time to teach us how to eat crawfish. So glad she did because it was delicious. The patio had a nice ambiance! It was the perfect southern hospitality experience.

I was truly disappointed in this place. We went expecting the menu that was published on Open Table and Yelp only to find out that they completely revamped the menu. I was looking forward to their Deviled Eggs and Pork meatballs which are now nonexistent as is the Shrimp and Grits and other items we wanted to try. I ended up settling for the Rib Steak which came out over done. The creamed spinach needed spinach. The Lobster MAC and Cheese that they retained from the old menu was outstanding.
Service was mediocre. This place needs a manager that pays attention to service. We had to wait 30 minutes for an outside table when there were several that were available.
Would not go back and they need to lose their rating. I alway consider 4 stars on Open Table a good bet. Not this time.

Good was not bad- very expensive for the portion size and what it was. Sides are a la carte and very expensive, and small portions.
Service was horrible. Wrong drinks were brought out, after taking forever. Good was brought out and no silverware was on table. We asked for some and eventually got it 10 minutes later. Good was cold by then.

Not impressed.

I took friends there who were in Augusta for the Augusta National Women’s Amateur. They enjoyed it very much. I’m still sorry that the remodel cut the dining room in half with a very ugly wall not in keeping with the architecture of the hundred year old and fabulous building.

My husband and I came here to celebrate my birthday. We’re new to Augusta and had heard this was a nice place to eat. While the ambiance and service were both very good, the food left a lot to be desired. Both my duck and his steak were very over cooked, and the salad was unimaginative and full of brown, wilted lettuce. Our server was super helpful and nice though...wish I could remember her name! And it was a perfect evening to sit on the porch with a great view.
