If you're ever in Augusta, GA, for a *cough* golf tournament or otherwise, here are a couple of places I highly recommend you try out:
Somewhere in Augusta Bar & Grill - has some of the best chicken wings around. With over 20 different flavors, including quite a few dry rub specialties, you can't lose with SIA. (Their Cajun wings are absolutely awesome!) They also have a good selection of burgers, wraps, and other items. http://somewhereinaugusta.com/ has more information.
The Cotton Patch - located in downtown Augusta, the Cotton Patch has a pretty diverse menu. My personal favorite is the Big Bacon Classic: quite possibly the best burger conceived by man. http://eatdrinkbehappy.com/ has more info.
Blue Sky Kitchen - located in downtown Augusta, Blue Sky has an awesome, eclectic menu with everything from a Cuban Sandwich to Red Neck Stir-fry. It's one of our favorite places to eat here at the office, partly due it being right across the street... but the food is quite excellent for lunch OR dinner. http://www.downtownaugusta.com/bluesk...
OK....Old School here.
French Market Grille- the best soft shell crabs I have had anywhere; fried in corn flour... and the Crab Chops a la Charles- made with applejack brandy- best she-crab soup this side of Charleston.....great marinated shrimp- fresh oysters (clamped shut and opened right before serving) on the half shell,and deserts to die for- and the blackened fish- the real deal, not shook on out of a can but burned on, black and hard.
Villa Europa- best German I have ate anywhere- Best Scallopini Picatta and a darn good Prime Rib also.....and the Prince Regent Cake; plus a great bar (the real deal liquors from around the world).
Kudo to Calverts and The Telfare Inn. Aiken also has some really good cutting edge food downtown (Cuzine, Malias, etc).....and do not forget La Cantina (not mexican) near Clarks Hill; best chunk of beef in S.C..
If you like German food, visit the Augsburg Haus just up the street from MCG on Walton Way. It is smaller and more intimate than Villa Europa's multiple rooms and noisy crowd.
There is no match in Augusta for the French Market Grille.
Bonefish Grill on Washington Road has a great bar and wonderful fish.
The White Elephant downtown has an eclectic menu and good service. Their Wind Down Wednesday tapas and wine are one of the best deals in the city.
Speaking of Tapas, The Bee's Knees at 10th and Broad is a tapas and bar place that is open later with indoor and al fresco dining. Wonderful place to take a date.
Augusta has great food! My personal favorites are....
Blue Sky Kitchen---soo good. Most of the places downtown have a great food. I love the tuna!
Shangri-La-- awesome chinese food. Best in Augusta.
Bee's Knees--a funky restaurant which serves tapas. A great place to hang out and grab a glass of wine with friends.
The Fresh Market--yes, it is grocery store BUT their deli is awesome and their wraps are fabulous.
Dunkin' Donuts-- I just love their coffee :)
