Augusta's classic dive bar with delicious burgers and cheap beer. Yes it's dingy and the decorations are mostly old junk -- that's part of the charm.

Really good comfort food! Chicken & waffles, biscuits and gravy, burgers and other old fashioned favorites. This place is super popular so visit at an off-peak time or be prepared to wait for a table.

Since this is further down Broad Street, it's easier to get a table than at Mellow Mushroom on weekends. Nice quality pizza plus salads, appetizers and a good drink selection. We recommend ordering by the slice -- it's a good value and you can try more more than one kind.

Hip coffee shop with sandwiches and other breakfast and lunch options. Spacious patio is a great place to hang out. They have a full bar so feel free to get a mimosa or bloody mary with brunch! (They inexplicably close at 2:30 pm though, so don't get there too late)

Really delicious hot sandwiches and fries. Made to order, so be ready to wait 15+ minutes for your meal. It's about the only place for late-night food downtown, so it starts hopping around midnight and goes until 2 am!

The name makes it seem like a beer-focused bar but it's a surprisingly good restaurant. If you're craving pub food this is the place to go. Some of our favorites are chicken wings, fried mac & cheese bites, schnitzel, pretzel with beer cheese, and rice bowls.

Parks & Nature
Beautiful network of walking trails through forest and wetlands. Locals love to take photos on the expansive boardwalks that go over the water. There's a visitor center with educational information about the plants and animals in the area, plus a playground for kids. Free to visit, great for families or walking your dog.
