I had read some not so great reviews on here but went a friend's recommendation. Soooo glad I trusted her!!! Everything was unbelievable. We will definitely... More

August E's in of itself is worth a 4 hour drive to have dinner there. Period. But if you have never been, then you are in for a real treat. The main dining room is very beautifully decorated, and very generously spaced tables, so you aren't eating on top of the people next to you. The food is one thing... More

We got reservations anticipating it would be a high sought after spot on Thanksgiving Day. And it was as they were full, but the food just was not worth the money. The service was excellent, food was lacking taste. I ordered the Traditional meal and it was all mushed together and smothered in turkey gravy and the stuffing didn't have... More

We received a recommendation from our host at a local B&B to Visit August E's. Turned out on Tuesdays, in addition to the regular menu, they have a Thai menu as well ("Thai Tuesdays"). We tried it out and the food was amazing. Highly recommend it to anyone visiting Fredricksburg.

Ugh. Where do I start? This beautiful restaurant is completely ruined by poor service and high priced yet mediocre food. Our server was nice but either very inexperienced (and not well trained) or simply incompetent. We waited a long time for drinks, without status updates from our server, then after they finally arrived, one member of our party waited even... More

Our evening started out as amazing the minute we walked into August E's. The hostess was friendly and accommodating to the point of moving chairs to a position were we could both people watch. Then James arrives, WHAT a personality! In the future, all our waiters will be judged by James. Our meal was cooked to perfection; the lobster not... More

I took a group of 11 ladies to dinner here this past Friday to kick off our bachelorette wine weekend in Fredericksburg. The restaurant was very accommodating with such a large group & we had a beautiful table in the main dining room. Our server Joe, was the highlight of our evening. He was lively, hilarious and SO NICE! His... More

Great service, but food was nothing to write home about. Extensive wine list, which was nice. Very expensive (IE Overpriced). I'm all for fine dining, but the food was bland and not worth the money we spent.

Visited Fredericksburg and if you are looking for a fine dining place this is it. The steaks were seasoned very well and the axis deer meat was great. The sides were very good as well. Nice place to visit.
