Aura is a unique experience that you wouldn’t expect to get in Statesboro. To start, the drinks taste and appear to be more expensive than they are. Don’t get me started on the food, it is exquisite.. you can tell their kitchen staff puts their time and effort into each dish prepared. 12/10 experience each time I’ve been, I recommend it for date nights, special occasions, and a casual night or a spur of the moment plan.

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.

Delicious! Best meal we had in Augusta. Perfect oysters Rockefeller (and I’m from New Orleans). Crisp and creative beet salad. Perfect Brazino … crispy on the outside and tender inside. Great cocktails; decadent croissant bread pudding. I give it a 5!!! Worth every penny!!

Best restaurant I’ve been to in a long time! Food, ambiance, service, everything was amazing. The food and ambience made me feel like I was back on our honeymoon at an all-inclusive resort! This is exactly the place I was looking for to go back over and over again for date night!

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!

Absolutely the best pizza in Athens GA! Hot, crispy, delicious. We got the Hawaiian and a Caesar salad, both were delicious. The server was friendly, helpful and attentive. The vibe of the place is really good. The online reservation opportunity was very helpful since we were on a schedule to see a show later. The food came out in very good time. Just a great experience, so glad we have this option now in Athens.

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.

With dishes ranging from duck fat fried chicken to shrimp and grits and a 60-day aged porterhouse steak, the deliciously distinct results stir the soul and harken back to the jubilance and vibrancy of Augusta’s days as our state capital.

Group of 4 for dinner … quesadillas, tacos, nachos and queso were all excellent. Love the variations they offer in traditional Mexican food. The BEST margaritas in town ! It’s noisy but that is part of the vibe. Diners were a nice mix of young and old. The music was great but we didn’t stay late enough to hear the DJ. Maybe next time!
