Business Lunch Review: The Feed Sack – North Augusta

Food Quality: 4
Service: 5
Business Meeting: 4
Value: 4

Overall Rating: 4.25 out of 5

As a former ABD reporter, I often covered future restaurant openings and vowed to visit many of them when they opened. I tried some of these eateries, but there are still many others I plan to visit someday.

In March 2023, I wrote one of those stories about plans to open The Feed Sack’s North Augusta location following the success of its original location in Aiken. I wanted to check out the upscale restaurant at the time and more than a year later, I finally got my chance.

Before I visit a new restaurant, I always like to look at the menu and think about what I want to order. The Feed Sack offers a wide variety of dishes, including salads, sandwiches, steaks, and seafood, but I was pretty sure I wanted either a hamburger or a steak.

When my wife, Rebecca, and I visited the restaurant for lunch, we were instantly impressed with its romantic atmosphere. We first ordered our drinks and a charcuterie board containing salami, crackers, various cheeses, and olives. We both enjoyed it, but she said she likes the charcuterie at Craft & Vine better.

For our entrees, I ordered the Feed Sack Burger with no tomatoes, and Rebecca ordered the crispy fish sandwich. Both were served with a generous portion of fries. The food was delivered quickly and tasted great. The burger was so large, I couldn’t quite finish it, but that wouldn’t have been the case if we hadn’t ordered the charcuterie board.

As we ate, the restaurant became more crowded, but because its seating was spaced out, it never got loud, making it a good location for a business meeting. The Feed Sack can also accommodate large parties for businesses with many employees.

In terms of value, I would compare The Feed Sack to Augustino’s, which offers various menu items, such as steaks, salads, and seafood. According to its online menu, the restaurant also serves charcuterie boards for $22, which is $5 less than those at The Feed Sack. But Augustino’s charges more for its steaks. For example, its 14-oz. ribeye costs $20 more.

Augustino’s doesn’t serve sandwiches, but at The Feed Sack, the burger costs $16, and the fish sandwich costs $15, comparable to the prices at many other restaurants.

Now that we’ve discovered The Feed Sack, Rebecca and I have vowed we will return soon.
