Pink Hummus is fantastic with beautiful presentation. Ribeye is tender and flavors. I love spinach casserole side, not too much on truffle potato fries . The Emily drink is interesting with dark purple color

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.

The rooftop bar is great for a cocktail at sunset. Killer views. Good drinks. Very comfy. Our meal downstairs in the restaurant, on the other hand, was really quite bad. Incredibly slow service from wait staff who knew nothing about the wine list, followed by food that was so over salted as to be inedible. We probably won’t eat here again...much as we had hoped to like it.

BUT,

Food was fair to decent, service was friendly but unskilled, and value was poor for the money.

We may come again for the ambiance, but not the food.

Great Food. Service was good except that our food came while we were eating out appetizer. Then it had to be kept warm.... And, menu (special Valentine Day menu) as advertised was changed when we arrived to other Entrees - very disappointed. We had wanted the steak and lobster tail but instead it was replaced with steak, 2 salad shrimps and crawdad.... Doesn't quite compare. Don't get me wrong, it was good - just not what we were expecting. The Oyster Appetizer and Chowder were great. Dessert was good as well. Musicians were great. Overall it was a good experience and the food was good. Would we go back? Yes! Lesson learned not to chose a restaurant based on special menu. Thanks!

My husband and i went for lunch on Valentine's day but the special they had was only for dinner so it was just the regular lunch menu which was not specified online. The burger my husband ordered was like $18 but worth like $8. My soft shell crab sandwich was very under cooked and the shell was not edible at all. It was honestly more shell than crab. The waitress was great but i cannot remember her name. The service she gave was professional yet down to earth and relatable. The hotel and restaurant was clean and welcoming and the staff were well dressed and very nice. I just wish the food could've been as good as the service and ambiance.

This was a fixed price menu for New Years and these things are often a let down, but this was way over priced for a very mediocre hotel meal. Even my cocktail was poorly made and overpriced. Additionally, I found nothing charming about the over lit room.

Since we are from out of town, it had been a few months since we had been to the PI Bar and Grill. The new menu has some delicious choices while still retaining my favorites like the lobster mac and cheese. We had two meals during our recent stay at the Partridge Inn, and both exceeded our expectations. The manager, Elliott, stopped by our table a couple of times to ensure everything was good. He also suggested a great local beer. The atmosphere is very relaxed which is nice when arriving late. Also, ask for Rebecca's Punch if she is bartending - it is great.

I went specifically to hear the jazz group, so one detractor was that the band was set up in front of a door to the balcony, which was used by patrons when the band was on break. As a fellow musician, this caused me some sympathetic anxiety for the equipment, but thankfully nothing was knocked over.
I had the ostrich...which was amazing! The portioning seemed small-ish for the price when compared to chain restaurants, but that is to be expected considering its gourmet nature...and I did not leave hungry. Thanks for a very enjoyable experience!

Had the lamb steak. The steak was passable, although oddly overdone on one end. The pilaf was dry; the onions under-done. Service was remarkably good, however, as was the band.

Service was great and the food was different but excellent. On Friday night and Saturday morning we sat outside on the porch with a lovely view of the hills of Augusta. On Friday night there was a jazz trio with singer. Nice touch. On Saturday night for our anniversary, we were treated to free champagne. The buffet breakfast on Sunday was okay but not as good as previous meals. I would recommend this place highly. We stayed at the hotel for two nights.
