My husband and I decided to give this a try for our anniversary. The food was very fresh and tasty, on the mild side which suits us. A bit pricey. You have to pay for chips and salsa. Good chimichangas.

Service attentive and not rushed with server informed with menu items. Place is upscale south western cuisine. Food good but not great but that sums up most in the region. Parmesan crusted grooper was a little heavy on the topping which detracted from a very...More

Not your run of the mill Southwest/Mexican restaurant. Upscale, great atmosphere, linen napkins, familiar items but with a passion for great flavor marriage, quality, a sense of adventure and great attention to detail. Just for starters. My wife and I had their painted desert soup...More

We bring the very best of Southwestern culture and cuisine home to the Lowcountry. Our menu has been an Islanders" preferred dining spot for over 20 years and with dishes like our famous grouper, to our bone-in cowboy cut black angus ribeye, our outrageous chimichanga to even lobster fajitas, we're sure to have a new favorite waiting for you. From the sounds of the live Ranchero guitar player to the smells rising from our mesquite grill, Santa Fe Cafe is a much welcomed reprieve for the senses. Even when you're outside underneath the stars on our Rooftop Cantina, we've got you covered.
