This restaurant is located in the heart of downtown Aiken. There decor is rich woods walls and large bar. They are famous for their hamburgers and hotdogs. Although it is a bar that serves food, kids are welcome. They also have billiard tables toward the hack of the restaurant. This is a local favorite.

I went here to satisfy my craving for fried catfish! I'm originally from Louisiana, so my standards are high for this dish. City Billiards rose to the challenge and I was so pleased with everything! The fried catfish plate came with so many strips, I can't remember how many there were! It also came with 2 sides plus a side... More

City Billiards is a landmark establishment in Aiken. Although famous for their chili dogs and chili cheeseburgers, their menu goes much deeper and they offer nightly dinner specials that is far from "pub food"! One of my favorite hidden gems on the menu is their fried chicken livers - absolutely the BEST in Aiken and a over generous portion (enough... More

This is a great place for lunch with children or grandchildren. The wait staff is attentive; the food comes out hot and the burgers are really great.

We were in town for the Masters and everywhere else was mobbed. We walked by and a couple who were eating there told us the burgers were great. We weren't disappointed. Both burgers were fresh, hand made, and cooked exactly the way we ordered. The ciabatta bun was high quality and the lettuce and tomato were fresh, as were the... More

I have been going to City Billards for a while. However on my last visit there was a change in the menu. Ordered the hamburger and can definitely say this is the best one I have had in years. Everyone at the table agreed the food was wonderful

We stopped here for a quick bite and were not disappointed. The place looks kind of sketchy from the outside, But don't be discouraged. The staff was very nice. There's not much of a selection on the menu. However, The burgers were excellent.
