Meh. OUTSTANDING place, great ambiance, superior penthouse bar...

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!

The food at Partridge Inn was incredible. The ambiance was perfect for Valentine’s Day. And the rooftop bar is a hidden gem of Augusta. Would definitely recommend and can’t wait to try their usual menu

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.

Great ambiance and food was good, not great. For the price we expected great food but the lobster Mac & cheese app was amazing! Great place to go for a date night, or just drinks on the roof top bar overlooking downtown Augusta.

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.

Please note that if you make a reservation for 9:30a on a Sunday that the breakfast buffet closes at 10:00 a.m. so if your server doesn't come to your table until 9:45a to take your order, you're cutting out some time - especially if the omelet and waffle station are super slow or if they're no longer re-filling certain items. All that said, the food was great. But, it would have nice if the hostess had told us the buffet closes at 10a.

We dont get a date night often and we recieved a gift card to the PI restaurant. We got there and about 3 of the hostess' were talking to each other and waited to finish their conversation before addressing us. We were seated and Candace served us right away. I asked for a pomegranate martini and it was horrible. It wasnt mixed well and I think was only alcohol. Candace never came to check and see how I liked my drink. When our food came out my husbands steak was closer to well done than med rare. Again, she never came to check on us. My husband asked another waiter for salt, and he never brought it. I got up and went inside and grabbed salt for my husband. My food tastes like it came out of a freezer bag. It was a horrible experience all around. We were extremely dissappointed.
