The food scene around the capital city has slowly been gaining momentum in recent years, but who's the best of the best?

Yelp is a rating website. From restaurants to auto repair, hair salons and gyms, Yelp users rate all of it giving you, the consumer, a good idea of what to expect.

5. Cushnoc Brewing-A fairly new spot in Augusta having opened in the fall of 2017, Cushnoc has made a huge impact by making it to the top 5 list. Pizza and beer, is there a better combo?

Heather F. of Old Orchard Beach, Maine had this to say about her experience:

A second night in a row of eating out with the housemates tonight. mmm, a really nice dry-rub BBQ is always so good. Everything was tasty, fall-of-the-bone ribs (half rack- there were 6 ribs), the seasoned fries, jalapeño cornbread, even the roasted veggies. They also had a small shelf on the front wall filled with many types of hot sauces... in case you wanted something diff on your ribs and wings. I forgot to take a pic of that ‍♀️. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #RiverfrontBBQ #RiverfrontBarbequeAndGrille #BarAndGrill #BBQ #Ribs #DryRub #SeasonedFries #RoastedVeggies #JalapenoCornbread #HotWings #BuffaloWings #Augusta #AugustaMaine #Maine #MaineEats

1. The Red Barn-If you've never heard of The Red Barn, you should probably just return your Central Maine card now. With the generous owner, Laura, at the helm, with her countless donations and fundraisers, this Augusta seafood restaurant has even earned the attention of Forbes and NBC's Nightly News!
