If you want oysters only this is the place. But the service really bad. Would have thought that after 30 plus years in business they would have gotten there service down. The server was more worried about her tip than anything else...

Place was filthy. The place was NOT busy the afternoon we went. We were seated in an area with un-bussed tables on each side of us. Dirty plates with dried food scraps on both tables. Both of our menus had dried food stuck to them. After drinks arrived, dirty plates were finally removed from around us. Tables were never wiped off. Hostess tried to sit new patrons on one side of us, but they wouldn't sit due to all the food scraps on the table - she then took them to the other side of us and the hostess used the menus in her hand to knock the food scraps off that table into the floor. Finally got the waitress to bring a bill for the 2 unfinished drinks. We got up and left. Stay away from this filthy horror.

This is the hangout for the Augusta Roadies. The food is very good and presented well. The wings and oysters are my favorite. Not much on atmosphere but again, this is a quick meal for an average price. The servers are very friendly and the owner comes out and talks with the patrons. If you want a quick meal - this is the place.

The oysters were very small, the ribeye steaks were very thin, about 1/2" thick and the server brought out our food and left for over 5 minutes before we could get her attention to bring us silverware and napkins. There was a table next to us they were very loud with 4 kids that were running around the dining room and watching a video on a device that was so loud, we couldn't hear ourselves talk and the wait staff seemed like that was no big deal when we brought it to her attention. Our tab was $125.00 for dinner with only 3 adults in our party and a single glass of wine served and one dessert split the ways. Everyone drank water with the meal. Very expensive for very mediocre food, poor service and terrible atmosphere.
