Hampton's is one of three fine dining restaurants in the area, and while it has virtually no atmosphere the food, though expensive, is supposed to be good, however we have really never been satisfied with the package. Service is mediocre at best, with a hint of we are doing you a favor to wait on you. The food was OK,... More

The last time we were at Hamptons my husband commented, as we were leaving, we need to eat here more often. When I received my meal it was a feast for the eyes, so many bits and nibbles of various types of food all coming together in a rich harmony. Half the time I wasn't sure what things were, but...

Loved their quiche and fruit. Interestingly they have options to sweeten your tea - simple syrup, raw and white sugar cubes. Our waiter needs to be better trained. Business lunch with no tea refills and no checking on our food until we were done. Took us asking for our bill before we got it some time later and then he... More

Interesting brunch, unusual sauce on eggs Benedict but was ok, definitely need to upgrade the coffee, very light, maybe a problem with the brewer. "Hash browns" were fried, literally, service was good, need to upgrade the food.

We are world travelers and foodies. This place is simply one of the best restaurants anywhere!!! In Sumter SC!! The chef pairs the finest ingredients (think Allen Bros steaks, Berkshire Pork, fresh Grouper, real sushi grade Ahi) and then adds five star presentations. The wine list is adequate especially given this very small town. If you want some of the... More

Been several times. Food is good, but service is most definitely spotty. Lunch time offers more affordable options, but worse service. Dinner will easily cost $80-$100 with soup or salad and dessert per person. Add in a drink or two, will be over $100. However, servers are still slower than average, especially considering how much you are paying for a... More

We were traveling back from Northern Virginia and looking for the half way point for a stop over. Google does great things, including the suggestion that Sumter SC is half way between DC and Orlando. We booked a hotel in this tiny town, had little expectations on what to find in terms of dining - and surprise - Hamptons Restaurant,... More

Having heard how great this restaurant is, we decided to give it a try and drove one hour from Columbia to find out. The menu offerings and presentations were well above what you would expect to find in a small town or in any city for that matter. The food and service were excellent and on par with the finest...

We chose to dine on the back deck and listen to the music. The chairs were miserably hard and uncomfortable during the 30 minute wait for the staff to acknowledge us (I had to walk inside to ask for service). Three other tables were receiving service on the back deck but in the 30 minutes we waited, no one came... More

Surprising, but people travel here to this restaurant from towns nearby that have more money to spend in their own communities, but come here to this restaurant. Bakery goods are nice. Service is good.
