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.

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.

One of the best parts of living in the south is the abundance of barbecue joints, and this is especially true in Augusta. Since we are right on the border of Georgia and South Carolina we get to enjoy all kinds of barbecue goodness. The cooking method for the meat can be similar sometimes, but the sauces in Georgia tend to be more tomato based and the Carolina sauces use mustard and vinegar bases.  They are both delicious in my book!  When the weather is nice during the spring and fall, you can enjoy your barbecue on the patio.

When I start craving a delicious pulled pork barbecue sandwich, I head across the Savannah River to the BBQ Barn.  They have a really relaxed atmosphere, delicious food, and a variety of barbecue sauces to compliment their meat!  My husband and I usually get the pulled pork sandwich basket, which comes with your choice of side. My choice is almost always french fries, since they are always hot and fresh!  Add on a sweet tea and our bill is about $12. You can’t beat that for delicious barbecue, especially when they also offer tasty desserts, too. We’ve tried the red velvet cake and the Oreo cake and they are both scrumptious!

If you are in the mood to ‘pig out’ on some barbecue while you are visiting Augusta, you should definitely venture across the river to try out the BBQ Barn.

One of my favorite places to venture to on my lunch break with co-workers is Nacho Mama’s, located in downtown Augusta. If you find yourself downtown and hungry make sure to find your way to this atypical Mexican eatery for either lunch or dinner. What establishes Nacho Mama’s from its competitors are their large serving sizes, fresh and delicious ingredients, and its prime location to downtown shopping and attractions.

Nacho Mama’s menu looks much like a menu should look for a typical Mexican dining establishment. The hunger-stricken guest can find nachos, burritos, hard and soft shell tacos, quesadillas and taco salads. But, each dish is larger than one would expect and has an authentic taste unlike anything I have ever tasted. My favorite is the chicken and black bean taco, loaded with fresh, all white meat chicken, black beans, Monterey-jack cheese, lettuce and pico. Also, add an order of the nacho cheese and the Nacho Mama’s house salsa, mango habanero salsa, which makes the perfect appetizer while you are waiting for your taco, burrito, etc. to be prepared fresh to order.

There is plenty of seating upstairs or downstairs and they are happy to accommodate larger parties of families, friends, co-workers, whomever. They offer a great selection of beer, both domestic and imports. Drop by for happy hour daily from 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. They also make an excellent top shelf margarita and also serve several well drinks.

After you are nice and full, take a stroll down Broad Street and enjoy the authentic shops that can only be found in Downtown Augusta. Most are open later in the evening, especially during First Fridays.

I LOVE crab legs! It’s not something I usually like to order when I go out to a restaurant, though.  When I order crab legs I want to eat them and not worry about how messy it is while I’m enjoying my meal.  When my son and I get a taste for some delicious crab legs, we usually go to Crab King on Milledgeville Road.  We particularly like the Garlic Snow Crab Tray.

They have shrimp and fish, and a lot of other good stuff on the menu but, their name is Crab King, and that is really what they do best!
