Masters week busy for restaurants

Posted: Updated:
AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

The Masters crowd brings great business for the CSRA, and these crowds are keeping restaurants busy.

Many places have been taking reservations for months.

The Wild Wing Cafe on Washington Road added more seating in their parking lot and added a stage for live music. Manager Randy Ranis says these aren't the only changes they had to make.

"We more or less triple our staff. We increase our seating by opening an outside area fenced out up front with a band starting at about 7 p.m., and then we bring them inside," Ranis said. "This year we have a Bud Light trailer that has televisions, bar seating, and we just try increase and bring in the volume."

Ranis also says no matter where you choose to eat, it's best to call ahead or get there early to avoid long wait times.
