Two Rhinehart’s Oyster Bars are in Augusta, but whichever one is closest is the best choice. One is in Evans, and one is close to downtown. Both serve fresh, well-prepared seafood, pub food, and sandwiches.
Nobody would wonder if they were owned by the same people. They look like beach restaurants attacked by graffiti artists. “People won’t get nervous if your restaurant looks like a broken down beach shack” is one of their sayings. Nope, we couldn’t find any!
“Beyond Casual” is their theme. Great food is what you get!
This isn’t exactly what I had, but spicy shrimp like the ones in this picture were a part of our $21.21 Friday Date Night Special. For that price, we got two meals. Mine was spicy boiled shrimp and Bill Ronay’s was medium chicken wings. Paired with awesome french fries, home baked bread, chunky cole slaw, and washed down with Yuenglings, our meals couldn’t have been better on any beach, anywhere.
The Yuenglings were part of the $2.10 Friday beer special. Coors Light is the other choice. They have specials every day. And if you are a Facebook friend who gets their emails, there are a host of extremely well priced late evening specials.
I have no clue where they source their shrimp, but they are big, juicy, flavorful and THE BEST I’ve had in I can’t remember when. I saw a bunch of fried shrimp meals around me. So if peel and eat doesn’t suit you, the fried shrimp is probably a good alternative. Or oysters… raw or fried.
“Ice cold beer make the world a friendlier place” is some more of their homegrown wisdom. Sure enough, you’ll find yourself in conversation with folks over at the next picnic table. People come from all over to chow down at Rhinehart’s.
Catfish, crab legs, fish sandwiches, and an array of beef choices are all good.
Anytime you are hungry in Augusta Georgia, fill up at Rhinehart’s. You’ll be plotting a return trip. Guaranteed.
