Read other customer reviews of this restaurant and decided to try it this evening as I was staying in Sumter on business. The service was outstanding - attentive and helpful. The cheese biscuits were just plain yummy!! I could have made a meal off of them. The shrimp and grits were great!! Highly suggest this restaurant if you are in... More

Try the prime rib sandwich! Wish they were open all day instead of closing and reopening, but I'd make time for that sandwich.

My wife and two friends dine there for lunch at least once a month and when our nephew is in town, we take him there for dinner. He loves their prime rib. The atmosphere is quiet, clean and friendly. The service is excellent and the complimentary cheese biscuits are delicious. The portions are generous and I usually have the half... More

Stopped en route between Charlotte area and Charleston for lunch because of good ratings. Dreary day weather wise so hot soup sounded appealing. Soup du jour already sold out even though we were having early lunch in an almost empty dining room. We opted for the she crab soup, which was was way too thick with too little flavor. The... More

My husband and I recently moved to Sumter and we love trying out local places wherever we go. My father-in-law came into town to help us during our home search, so we wanted to treat him to lunch. We came here because of the great reviews and the food sounded really good. I ordered the Fried Green Tomato BLT with... More

We have eaten here several times the last 3 years and it has always been delicious! Haven't been in quite awhile and chose to have our anniversary meal here because I wanted their shrimp and grits. The shrimp and grits have always been some of my favorite in town BUT they have definitely changed the recipe and in my opinion,... More

We stopped here for a late lunch on our way through town. The chicken and biscuit over gravy was very good. My husband had the steak sandwich and pronounced it perfect. The owner stopped by our table to make sure we liked everything and was very friendly. The food has a Louisiana feel. The Gravy was close to a Cajun... More

The restaurant is very quaint and has southern charm. I had the southern pit, fried green tomatoes and sautéed spinach with the works. Food was amazing! The wait was a little long for the food but the wait staff kept us informed and our drinks full the whole time. Enjoy the southern hospitality of the best restaurant in Sumter.

Thank sdbehrens
