Most excellent brunch today at the Bear E Patch Cafe. Our friend loved her sausage gravy and biscuits. Hubby was thrilled with this sausage, scrambled eggs, French toast and grits. My Virginia Omlet was terrific and big! They were happy to substitute Cheddar for Swiss. I don't know where they get their grits, but they're exceptional. Biscuits were not perfect... More

I have passed this restaurant countless times and never considered it until some work colleagues wanted to stop for lunch. I had no idea that this is "the" place to be in West Ashley! Good food and service.

The BEST potato salad ever. I am never disappointed with the food or the service. Lobster bisque is phenomenal, along with the egg salad BLT.

I've heard great things about this restaurant and I decided to visit on a Saturday afternoon. It wasn't very busy and the food was pretty good. I'll definitely be back! My daughters also gave this place their stamp of approval!

This used to be a favorite place to go when I worked close to the area. It was also a favorite place to go if I was in this side of town. However, the last several times I habe been here, the servicehas been horrible. Some of the waitresses seem almost angry to have to help and the mixup in... More

We stopped in for a later lunch. The Specials Boards have lots of choices as well as an extensive menu. The servers were changing shifts apparently. Our server changed. The girl who took our drink order brought the water, but without the lemon wedges. Another very quiet guy took our order and was our server for the rest of the... More

Food was amazing! The dining room is a little small however the food makes you forget about space. The Seafood was fresh.

I've been coming to this place for years and can honestly say I've never had a bad meal. Breakfasts are always great and for lunch I recommend the Dagwood or Chicken Charlie. Service is always great and it seems like everyone truly enjoys working here. My only complaint is they are closed on Sunday. I get it, but Sunday is... More
