I was in Augusta for a few days and wanted to meet a dear friend for dinner. We had met a year ago here with another old friend from high school and enjoyed it so much, and it was centrally located for all of us. I did not have a reservation, but it was a Thursday evening at about 7pm so I wasn't too worried. The staff is wonderful, and I was quickly seated to wait for my friend. They have an extensive wine list, I tried a glass of a cheeky little white from Australia and loved it. My friend was a bit late due to the weather, and the staff was so nice to keep checking with me until she arrived. The place was quite busy and almost every table was filled.
The specials are unique and creative, but I decided to have the chicken breast with garlic butter sauce, mixed sweet/white mashed potatoes and a caesar salad. It was very good! My friend had the seafood alfredo, and it looked delicious with lots of Maine lobster pieces in a rich sauce. We had a wonderful time, eating, laughing and catching up, and the staff was very accomodating, allowing us to linger for a long time after we were done. Our last visit was just as wonderful, and we told the owner that we would make Slates our regular yearly meeing place from now on. Next year I hope to leave room for dessert!!
