    We sat for 20 minutes without being greeted or served after the host sat us outside. I had to go to the bar and ask for a server to wait on us. I’m still not sure who our server was and the whole experience was super disorganized. We ordered the mussels and 2 dips as appetizers. The 2 dips came out immediately but were in 2 oz ramekins. I was pretty surprised by the size as it was $12! The mussels never came even though we ordered them as an appetizer. While waiting for the mussels, we decided to also order the chicken wings. For $9 per order I expected at least 7 per plate. However, only 4 wings came on the tiny plate and the wings were tiny and flavorless. By now, I’m over the entire experience and tell the server to forget about the mussels so we can just leave. Awful ambiance, awful service, and horribly disappointing food flavor and portions.

    Don’t plan on eating there, overpriced small plates. Outdoor heater ran out of fuel, no one bothered to fix it, even after we told them. it was cold!!! Not a place I will go back to.

    The ambience and the rooftop seating was the best part of the dining experience. The drinks were ok, nothing really special, and they were out of merlot. The food was fine, I felt that $9 for 4 wings was a little steep. I believe that that rooftop and ambience is how they substantiate the tapas/ food prices. I can't quite figure out what the establishment is trying to be, it was sending mixed messages, but it has potential for sure.

    The Roasted Mojo wings were dry and tough and had no flavor. When ordering the Patatas Bravas, it was supposed to have manchego cheese on it, however only about 2 of the potatoes had cheese on them, the rest did not, and there was no chimichurri in the aioli. The Wagu sliders tasted good, however, one them had cheddar on only half of the burger. They also were over priced on their bourbon’s, and their pour was very small.

    TL;DR: this venue is more for drinks and hanging out than for dinner. Our experience here was just okay. We went for dinner, but I don’t think we will go here again for food. The restaurant itself has a cute and vibrant atmosphere. They have games, live music, and other shows. When we got there the music was a bit loud, but we did go around 9PM and I think it turns more into a bar the later it gets. The food tasted fairly good. The buffalo chicken and pimento cheese dips were delicious, but the toasted bread served with it was very hard. The pork nachos had good flavor, but many of the pork rinds were too hard to eat. The sliders were really tasty too, but I’m not sure the portion size was worth the price. My biggest complaint is their timing. My boyfriend got his nachos about 10 minutes after we got the appetizer, but I didn’t get my sliders for at least another 20 minutes. Obviously they just threw the nachos together. It wouldn’t have been difficult for them to make the nachos closer to the time that my sliders were ready so they could bring those out together.

    As visitors, we had no clue where to eat near our hotel on 6th and Broad. A chance stop at Edgar’s bakery, and a recommendation for Edgar’s above Broad. Charming ambience. Friendly service. Shout out to Roland. We had the spreads trio of French onion, buffalo chicken, and crab with bread and crudités. We had a Nicois salad with all kinds of goodies on it as well as the shrimp and Johnny cakes. Homemade ice cream sandwiches rounded out the meal. We were pleasantly stuffed. The adorable vintage Airstream converted to a bar was a nice touch. Bright painted murals, yard games like corn hole snd Bocci ball vie with the pleasant view from 3 stories above Broad. This place was hopping Saturday night. Lots of singles, mingling. Live music.

    Waited 15 minutes for a server to come to our table. She took drink and appetizer order. Drinks arrived but after 45 minutes, the appetizers had not. We paid for drinks and left. When we asked about the food, the waitress responded: “You never got your food?”

    Small plates were smaller portions than I've had in other experiences. Definitely need several for two people. Food was excellent. Service very friendly. We were there early so it was fairly quite (6 - 7 pm). As were were leaving it was getting busier and louder. Would definitely recommend.

    I made a reservation for 6 outside as I was told to for the singing competition and when we arrived was told they didn’t have room for us. Wouldn’t even allow us to sit at a 4 seat table and pull up a chair (as we ended up with only 5) as they were all reserved (which should have included my reservation). Was disappointed I’m not being able to be a part of everything like I’d hoped.

    Food and drinks quality is always good, but drink prices are high, and service is slow, possibly due to it being Saturday night. As Yogi Berra said “Nobody goes there anymore because it’s too crowded.”

    Our first time at this business. Staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. Food was excellent for the price. Since we were a bit early in the evening, service was great and timely. However, as the evening progressed, service became slower and hard to find. I know the overall population had increased tremendously. However, not having enough staff to service properly might need some 'tweaking' consideration. Loved the layout and family atmosphere. I was part of the karaoke contest which is the reason for our first time there. We will be returning for the subsequent contests over the next few weeks. We would recommend this place to a younger crowd overall. Pretty much a party atmosphere as well. Well done!

    Singer was a great surprise, although i was surprised that someone singing the "standards" would be at a "hip" place like Edgar's. He was the best part of the evening. Food was ok. Tried 2 dips - crab and chicken - they were both good as blue cheese was not incorporated in the chicken dip (my husband loves the stuff and I can't eat it). Crostini were pretty hard. Nicoise salad was good, but my husband thought the red wine vinegar was missing from the dressing as it was a bit oily. We also got the chicken wings - 1 drummette and 3 flats to an order. they came with only some citrus ranch dressing which tasted ok on its own, but really didn't do much for the chicken. that and a couple of beers and a $13 glass of white wine (not really any less expensive options) completed our evening. It wasn't bad but we just didn't think it warranted a return.

    We really enjoyed the tapas style of dining, if there was one criticism it would be to offer a few more vegetarian options if possible - or maybe alternate chicken dishes. My husband loved his wagyu sliders and the veggies and dips were delicious as were the fingerling potatoes...

    Lackluster food in a space with great potential. The concept of this place is wonderful and could be a top destination in Augusta with a few tweaks to the menu. Our group of 4 sampled many things on the menu including the scallops, mussels, ceviche, pork nachos and tuna nicoise along with the 2 dips combo (crab and pimento cheese) and a beer and cocktails. The only two items we'd consider ordering again were the ceviche and mussels. The nachos were salty and overpowered by too many pork rinds. The Niçoise salad had a small amount of tuna at a price point of $16. It probably was worth about 1/2 that. The scallops dish was tiny for the price and the old fashioned was one of the worst I've had. It was the first time and probably the last we'd go. I'd recommend expanding the menu some more and reducing the prices. We ended up going to craft and vine to get better and cheaper cocktails and dessert. Frog hollow hospitality group blows this place out of the water.

    We went here for our anniversary and had a 6:30 reservation. The place was not packed, and we were seated quickly. But it was 20 minutes until someone came by to get our order. And they didn’t actually come by, we had to find someone. Got our order wrong…forgot to bring silverware (twice)…the blue crab dip was disgusting. The rooftop atmosphere was nice and the drinks were good, but the food was overpriced and nothing special. Service was horrific. Live music was great. I would only go back for drinks and to hang.

    Great ambiance. Excellent music by Chip Herring a local artist. Trip dip (blue crab, buffalo chicken and Gouda) with plenty of vegetables was plentiful and delicious. The attentive waiter recommended the wagyu sliders and they were both well prepared. Very nice cocktails and tapas. Great Vibe enjoyed the evening!

    Food very mediocre. Would not go back for the food. Did not enjoy the brisket-unable to eat with all the fat and gristle. The potatoes were very bland and we didn't eat those either. Three dips were good as were the Wagyu sliders. Charcuterie Board was a 3.5/10 and the pork nachos were a 8/10 (my husband rated those numerically!) The portions are very small and sad. The music was too loud and we had to ask to have it turned down, which they did. Still too loud as we could not hear each other talk at our table. We would go back for drinks only and sit as far away from the musicians as possible. It's a really nice place and hopefully they can get things right in the future because it's too cool a place to let fail.
