The Partridge Inn is a gorgeous, historic inn that sits on a hilltop overlooking Augusta GA. Known as “The Grand Hotel of the Classic South,” it has been a fixture in the city since the early 1800s.

Why does she haunt the halls of The Partridge Inn? Come with us as we tell you her tale.

While in the Area

When visiting The Partridge Inn, you must dine in their award-winning restaurant, P.I. Bar and Grill. We joined them for breakfast, and the food was delightful. You can order off their breakfast menu or opt for the buffet – which is what we did. From applewood-smoked bacon to grits and fluffy scrambled eggs to biscuits and sausage and made-to-order omelets, there is certainly something for everyone. Their lunch and dinner menu items are a must-have, as well. The P.I. Bar & Grill serves guests traditional Southern fare and classic American cuisine in a relaxed, yet sophisticated setting.

Special Thanks

She helped us find the perfect spots in the inn for each shot and helped us tell our story so faithfully. We’d like to extend our gratitude to Annette and to the entire staff of The Partridge Inn.
