Despite a 40 minute wait due to short staff and high demand, the food was fantastic, the staff was super nice, once we were seated staff was quick to take our order, and food started coming out fast,

We took a motorcycle ride down to Tawas explicitly to try out this restaurant on the advice of friends. We were not disappointed. I had their signature walleye sandwich and my wife enjoyed the lobster macaroni and cheese. The wait staff are hard working and...attentive. Loved the oldies music playing, and the view of the lake is beautiful.More

The food and service was excellent. They have really good coffee. The food was relatively inexpensive, which was a plus. We will be back!

Augies has changed things - definitely for the better!! Updated interior, great friendly service and the food is really good. Can you imagine oysters Rockefeller and a soft shell crab sandwich - in Tawas? Try it! It’s terrific. Huge Cobb salad with beautiful spring mix...greens, real bacon and blue cheese - so good. Can’t wait to come back for breakfast. And they are opening a sister restaurant on Newman St shortly - The Lazy Toaster - if the new Augies is any indication , the new place will be a step above, too.More

Weve been going here once a week since new owners. Have never had a bad meal. The outside seating is wonderful in the summer. Everyone who works here is so nice. Their prices are reasonable. And if you are a coffee drinker, theirs is the...hands down the best. We buy it by the pound for home. Their $5 burger meal is an awesome meal. Highly recommend Augies.More

The restaurant was busy, and there could have been a little more spacing, but we were at least 6 feet away from others, so it was fine. The reuben I had was unique...I had never had one with chopped corned beef before, and it worked....The view is great. Overall a nice place to stop and have breakfast or lunch.More

Augie's is my go to place for meals, coffee with friends, business meetings and quite time. Always great food, great service and stunning view of the lake. During busy times there maybe a short wait for a table but the staff and the food make...it worth the wait!! Highly recommend this place if you're in Tawas!More

I had always wanted to try this place but it closed. I was so glad to see it reopened; it was a great experience. The interior was remodeled and it has a nice atmosphere. Love the view of the bay. The food and service were...very good. The French Dip was delicious, as were the fries and the fresh squeezed orange juice. I will definitely be back to try more!More

We stopped for breakfast. We were told to sit anywhere, but it's a small dining room and there were only two tables available. We weren't told there was outdoor seating or we would have chosen that with the lake views. We had a decent lake...view from the indoor table anyway. The food was really good. The biscuits were soft and delicious, the vanilla french toast really flavorful. The service was good. The interior is a little dated and worn.More

Hi, yes there is a beautiful view of the lake. It actually sits right on the lake and has a nice little deck you can sit on and overlook it. You can also see it from the inside of the restaurant. They do not serve alcohol.
