  • #6-Rhinehart's Oyster Bar

    With two locations in Augusta, The slug line alone says it best.  “Beyond Casual”  The food is amazing, the environment is very relaxing and you have so many food options.

  • #5-Applebee's

    Applebee’s comes in at #5.  A place that doesn’t get the attention it deserves.  So a first date at Applebee’s would be perfect.  So much Variety in food, a full bar and a very relaxed place to talk

  • #4-Waffle House

    Now I can get behind this idea. If you are going for a very low key first date and a fancy restaurant may not be for you. The Waffle House is perfect. Maybe your first date is a late night or after work date. Not just for a first date, But you can never go wrong with The Waffle House at any time.

  • #3-Olive Garden

    This is a favorite of most all the date, but a first date could really do great here.  It is a very laid back restaurant with really good food and wine.  Just don’t over do it on the breadsticks on the first date.

  • #2-Logan's Roadhouse

    So Logan’s Roadhouse came in strong on the list of best places for a first date.  The food is always good, they have a great bar and in some locations, live music at night.  So if steak is on the mind for the first date, Here ya go!

  • #1-Texas Roadhouse

    And voted by you as the #1 place for the best first date is Texas Roadhouse.  This place is so much fun to go to even it it’s not a first date.  Great first date location, food is great, the vibe is fun, full bar and, THE ROLLS.
