One of my favorite lunch spots in downtown Augusta is the Mellow Mushroom! Not only do they have the best pizza in town in my opinion, they offer great service and a quick lunch menu.

I usually get the slice and salad offered on their lunch menu.  This is the best of both worlds-a treat and something healthy. It’s one of the best cheap, quick lunches in town! I also enjoy the garlic pretzels with marinara sauce. They come straight to your table warm from the oven and drizzled with a little bit of Parmesan and butter, and they’re so good!

Whether you have little time, or as much time as you want, make sure to pay Mellow Mushroom a visit! Enjoy!!

I just have one word to describe my elegant dinner at Frog Hollow Tavern in downtown Augusta, Georgia – Go.

I mean really you should go. Leave the kids at home, ask for Jeff as your server, order the Sweet Tea Martini, start with the mussels, order the Pot Roast for entrée, and crème Brule for dessert. Go.

Since we had a larger group for supper, we also got to try a little bit of everyone else’s entrees and appetizers, including this delicious sausage sampler…

And this chicken with grits and greens…

And this delicious steak with homemade steak frites!

Okay maybe two words to describe Frog Hollow Tavern – Go, now.

I recently had a friend visit from Virginia who wanted me to take him somewhere in Augusta. Being the good host that I am, I took him exactly where he asked, to Somewhere in Augusta. Somewhere in Augusta Bar and Grill doesn’t only possess a unique name, but also a unique scene special to only the Augusta area.

Augusta natives can be spotted at Somewhere in Augusta several nights a week to enjoy the vast array of entertainment it has to offer its patrons. Come rack your brain with the hosts of Tuesday Trivia: including current events, entertainment, movies, music and sports trivia, where the top three teams receive prizes. Get your friends and family together and make reservations for the Comedy Zone, each Wednesday night, but be sure to reserve your table early enough because room is limited and tables go quickly. (Please be aware that Comedy Zone is an 18-year-old and up show and visitors must present identification upon arrival.)

If you’re a sports enthusiast look no further than the 42 high definition flat screen televisions featuring any and all sports imaginable depending on the season. Sports fans gather to eat, drink, and be merry while cheering their favorite college football team to victory in fall, on Saturday afternoons, and yes, sports attire is encouraged! Somewhere in Augusta is known as “Augusta’s number one sports bar.” An impressive feat for a locally owned sports bar here in the Augusta area with several competitors.

My visiting friend had a great time at Somewhere in Augusta. He even said he would suggest it to people he might meet whose destination may be the Augusta area. Try Somewhere in Augusta any night of the week and enjoy the friendly staff, unique atmosphere and exclusive entertainment that can only be found here in Augusta.

On a recent Friday night, a friend and I decided to meet for dinner at the French Market Grille West. This is a great restaurant that offers delicious food, drinks, specials, friendly staff, and even entertainment.

They are known as a cajun restaurant with a casual atmosphere. They offer two locations, The French Market Grille, located in Surrey Center, and the French Market Grille West, located off of Fury’s Ferry Road.

Through dinner we enjoyed listening to the jazz music play as we ate our meal. I had the shrimp po boy-my personal favorite-and it never lets me down!

French Market also has specials every night of the week, so any night is a great time to check it out!. They were also voted  “Best Augusta Restaurant” 17 years in a row! Now that has to mean something-go out and visit!

If you are in Augusta and really hungry, I recommend the Carolina Ale House. The Carolina Ale House  is a regional restaurant based out of North Carolina. Makes Sense. It is a family-friendly sports themed restaurant. It does have a large menu that goes beyond the typical sports bar.

We went the other day with the kids and it was a great Saturday diversion and some wonderful food. We sat outside and watched SEC football. I love outdoor dining in Augusta in the fall, but I digress.

I ordered the Carolina Ale House Burger. A signature dish with smoky bacon, American cheese, ale house onion strings and Papa Lou’s secret sauce. Doesn’t it look fantastic? Please see next picture to see how much I liked it.

They have a great kids’ menu. William highly recommends the corn dog and applesauce.

My husband recommends the ribs and any burger on the menu. I think next time I will try Sweet Mountain BBQ Burger and maybe the house Mud Pie.

I consider myself a bit of a pizza aficionado…maybe a ‘pizza addict’ is a better way to put it. Either way, I love pizza and all Italian food, really. So I was really excited to see a new restaurant open up in North Augusta.  Right across the river from downtown Augusta, Antonio’s Italian Eatery did not disappoint!  I visited the first time with several of my coworkers, including a few New Yorkers, who are also very serious about their pizza and they loved it.

It has now become one of my favorite lunch spots for many reasons.  They offer several different ‘slice specials’ during lunchtime and service is fairly quick so you can get in and get out and get back to work.  You really can’t beat two slices and a drink for less than $6, and they aren’t tiny slices, either!  A couple of weeks ago I went with a friend of mine and two of her kids.  They loved it, too, although I’ve never met a kid that didn’t like pizza!

Antonio’s has a great location downtown with a friendly atmosphere. I can’t wait to visit again and try some more of their Italian specialties like spaghetti & meatballs and lasagna!
