My husband and I ate at the Glen-Ella Springs Inn Restaurant just a few nights ago. The place was small and cozy. The waitress very attentive...and the food was excellent and plentiful. It's a great choice for a special occasion. You will not be disappointed!

This will be our special place to celebrate, everything was wonderful...the atmosphere, the food, the service. We haven’t had a dining experience this good since leaving Charleston 10 years ago! Best beef tenderloin ever!

Charming yet casual. Wine/Beer. Food offerings are not fussy. Deserts are always made in house. Salads/apps are great.

Not a lot of restaurants in the vicinity of the Inn, so we ate in and were not disappointed. A nice atmosphere, you can choose to dine inside or out. The menue and service were very good.

The dress code for Glen-Ella Springs Restaurant will be dress casual. This is a fine restaurant with excellent food. You will see people in business suits, and Sunday go to church clothes. Then the next table might be jeans... More
