This restaurant shines as a local's favorite, and should receive more recognition than it does. I have received much better meals at Augusta Grill, which is about a mile off of Main Street, than I have at downtown restaurants. The menu is tweaked nightly and has a huge variety of dishes. Augusta Grill keeps it simple by switching out proteins but mostly keeping the sides the same on the entrees and some small plates. Last night I had duck, which was served with a reduction containing actual dime-sized pieces of sauteed foie gras. For $20. Try and find that for $20 downtown.
Augusta Grill is packed on certain nights of the week (for good reason), but I've never had to wait more than a few minutes for a table, and I have yet to go and not see the manager and/or owner out on the floor 90% of the time during my dinner. You won't find haute cuisine here, but you will find personalized service and I guarantee you'll find something on the menu that sparks your interest. The wine list isn't fantastic, but the corkage fee is only $20 (I'm not sure why people think $20 is a high corkage fee; it's really not). No reservations taken.
