About the restaurant
Abel Brown is a southern kitchen & oyster bar nestled in Surrey Center in Augusta, Ga. The name, much like our menu, is a nod to and celebration of our blended cultural roots. Authentic, yet refined, our ingredient-driven dishes are prepared and served with thought and respect. We pair clean and modern Southern cuisine with the charm & tradition reserved for high company.

Took my customer to dinner at 6 pm. We had oysters Rockefeller which were very tasty. She enjoyed a 2Heart cocktail and the ribeye. I had scallops which were perfectly prepared. Busy on a Thursday evening. Chocolate ganache hazelnut bar was dense and not too sweet served with vanilla ice cream. Very nice dinner.

About the restaurant
Preferred time not available? Call us at 706-364-6906

Chef Sean A. Wight’s vision of an affordable yet stylish dining and social club is born in Frog Hollow Tavern. Located on the 1200 block of Broad Street, the space is a modern “Restaurant meets Bar” where a diverse crowd of people enjoy the company of others paired with a comfortable atmosphere, detailed service, and exquisite affordable cuisine.
Expect a dinner menu that features a substantial amount of local and regionally grown seasonal quality ingredients, and menu that offers unique libations, which encourages an active and lively upscale bar scene.
The wine list that boasts over a hundred value driven wines has a focus on sustainable, organic, or bio-dynamic practices. The bar also features a diverse offering of Scotches, Cognacs, Bourbons, and Vodkas, and includes many great classic and seasonal cocktails, all made with freshly squeezed juices and homemade mixes.

About the restaurant
Bianca's Restaurant is fine dining in Northwest Albany offering pasta, steak, seafood, pizza and more. The menu offers mouthwatering everyday options along with amazing daily specials created by our talented chef. The dessert menu is tempting to anyone with or without a sweet tooth, it's just that good! The cozy, upscale atmosphere paired with the extensive wine list makes you feel like you aren't in South Georgia, but the friendly staff reminds you that you are and definitely makes you feel like family!

About the restaurant
Company Supply offers award winning contemporary Cajun and Creole cuisine with a "Southern Spin". New Orleans native, Richard Mascaro and his wife Colby returned to her home town and opened the doors in 2015. Diners enjoy casual elegance in the restored F.W. Woolworth building located next to Jackson Plaza.

Creative takes on Southern and Creole Cuisine bring traditions like our award winning Catfish Perdu, Crawfish Étouffée and Grits and Grillades to Dublin. Craft cocktails, an ever-changing 16 beer craft tap and the freshest oysters in Middle Georgia are just a little "lagniappe" to the beautiful building we call home.

Our Bar Side stage boasts live acts from around the region Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights with regular performances on Jackson Plaza in front of the fountain. If y'all don't get enough to eat or have too much fun on Friday, we will get you right with our brunch on Saturday and then after Church on Sunday.

Quality food could be served at any high end restaurant. Service is competent, a rare asset for a family restaurant. Always look forward to our trips to Dublin Company Supply.
