Came here for a date with my girlfriend. We started with some Oyster Rockfeller's which were great. She got a porkchop with mac & cheese and collard greens. She said her greens were the best thing she has eaten in awhile. I got the ribeye which tasted like butter. We ended the night with the chocolate bread pudding which is amazing.

It was ok. Delivery of incorrect entrees to start and then finally correct entre was delivered. Ribeye was very undercooked, sent it back and watched my wife eat on her own. The ribeye was not worth 38 dollars so a bit lacking on value as well.

We had a gift card to AB from friends we had taken to AB last March. Very pleased to say a year and a renovation later, AB’s food and service hasn’t changed one bit. The food is always amazing and the service is impeccable! It is probably our number 1 favorite restaurant in Augusta.

Table was ready when we arrived. Service was outstanding. Food was great as usual. Still a little noisy to have a conversation. If you need a little extra room at the table don’t get a booth. Still probably the best restaurant in Augusta.

Sent oysters back & they still wasn’t roasted right, they still tasted raw. We had them two other visits & they was roasted to perfection. I will not be ordering them again! Such a bad experience!

Not sure if it’s because they just reopened or what but the food was above average for anywhere else but not as good as the last 2 years we have been coming. Emily has been our waitress every time as well and she is always fantastic. I love the service and the atmosphere.. No matter what my husband and I would still come back any chance we get.

Reservation was for 8, didnt get sat until 8:45. We arrived at 7:45. We were served frozen bread, and when we told the manager, he was nonchalant about it. We were served soup with no spoons, literally drank from a bowl. We would've asked for spoons if the server ever came back to the table. They forgot our wine, and my husband's beer 3 times. We will never go back. Not worth the money.

My husband and I visited Abel Brown prior to visiting the Miller Theatre and had one of the greatest meals we've had! All of the oysters were delicious (the spicy jalapeno are the best)! Hunter was our server and he was amazing. He recommended the perfect bottle of wine to complement our choices and was extremely attentive. I had the filet cooked perfectly while my husband loved their smoked ribeye. Next time I'm in Augusta, I will definitely be returning!
