River And Rail’s Summerville Guidebook

Neighborhoods
"The hilltop neighborhood of Summerville was a distinct community separate from Augusta by the late 18th century. This small village on the sand hills west of town was situated astride the Indian Trading Road connecting Augusta with the Creek Indian Nation to the west. Part of that road is roughly followed by parts of today’s Broad Street, Battle Row, upper McDowell Street, and Wrightsboro Road... Augusta’s proximity to the river and surrounding low-lying marshland made it uncomfortable during the hot Georgia summers. People from downtown built summer homes on “The Hill” to get away from the oppressive heat below believing that the sand hills intercepted the westerly breezes and provided some cooling relief. As Augusta merchants became more prosperous, they began to construct summer homes on “The Hill” spending their entire hot season in them, thus the origin of the name “Summerville.”" Read more here... https://www.nps.gov/nr/travel/augusta/summervillehd.html

Favorite Bar's for happy hour and night life
Here are a few local favorites.
We love the craft cocktails and relaxed atmosphere at the Indian Queen. Our friends whip up the most delicious libations with fresh fruits and hand made mixers. From happy hour to late night, this place is always a good time!

Coffeehouse and pub combo with great live music on occasion. Open all day and closes late with live music on the weekends. This bar is special to me because I worked here for so long and we got engaged outside during a New Years Eve bash surrounded by all our friends. https://www.facebook.com/MetroAugusta/?rf=1418681538362620

Just your local casual downtown watering hole usually pumping out your bluegrassy vibes. Not so hipster anyone won't enjoy a cold beer from their large craft beer selection. Great cocktails as well. Worth the visit!

This self declared "casual fine dining" experience is a personal favorite for date night, solo dinner, or out with friends. The food is delicious and the oysters are so fresh. Enjoy the scene at the oyster bar or grab a seat in the front dining room. Or request a quieter table in the velvet wrapped dining room in the back. Either location will host a fantastic meal.

This is a local treat tucked back in a little community where you would never suspect it. From the legendary greenjacket house salad to the equally epic shrimp and grits, you can't pick a bad item on the menu. Weekends feature the $5 key lime pie martini and a few regular specials like the prime rib. My personal favorite is the blackened mahi mahi.
