Locally owned family restaurant and friendly atmosphere. Wonderful steaks and salmon! Terrific grilled veggies, baked potatoes and French fries... Best deal is the hamburger steak covered in delicious grilled mushrooms and onions Love the summer hours and my family goes once or twice each weekend.

I had the lobster special for Valentine's day early. What a surprise I had way more than I could eat brought home enough for two more meals. My wife had the blackened tilapia she thought this was excellent as well. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone who happens to be in the area. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable...

Let's start by saying the view is great and I love the cabin feel of the resturant. With their fire going it was very cozy. The breakfast was good and they served you plenty of food. The service was average but the entire staff is extremely friendly. We were hoping we could get a mimosa but they don't serve alcohol... More

This is a small restaurant nestled in a cove near a bridge on Lake Wateree. We docked our boat and walked up the dock and climbed the stairs onto the open air porch. Rustic pine rocking chairs greet you on the porch. Rustic ceiling fans and other decor are very charming. A hostess met us at the door and seated... More

WARNING. I'm a local, and with a limited number of good restaurants in our area, I tend to go back often to the few good ones. And boy, is this a surprise!

First time on Lake Wateree and here at The Retreat. Was just what we wanted and needed! Arrived by boat for an early dinner to beat the sun and heat. Zero wait at 4:30 on a Saturday. Two kids in tow and even with the lack of a kids menu we made do with apps - boneless chicken wings and... More

Food and service was okay. Although, the owner was very rude and inconsiderate to our needs. Planning on not coming back, and to add on to the displeasing visit the Mens restroom was in need of service BADLY.

I visited the restaurant while visiting a friend in Ridgeway, SC. My friend highly recommended we go to brunch before I left the area. The brunch was so yummy - huge Belgian waffles, fluffy scrambled eggs, crisp bacon and flakey biscuits. The view of the lake is gorgeous, staff are so friendly and helpful, and the food I highly recommend.... More

Great family owned restaurant tucked away at Colonel Creek Landing on rural Lake Wateree. Lovely rustic charm with a terrific view of the Lake. The best part - the food is awesome and the service is really good. It can get swamped on Friday and Saturday nights in season, so you may have to wait for a table, but it's... More

A log cabin styled restaurant tucked into a cove on Lake Wateree. It actually reminds me more of a place one would find in the Rockies, but it's here, for our benefit, in Kershaw county, SC. You'll feel at home here, even if all you want is a beer. The owners are great. They know how to make you feel... More
