A weary traveler arrived a little later last night in Walterboro looking for an adult beverage to settle down from a 12 hour drive. Carmine's looked open and I entered, there was five persons in the restaurant a server, bartender (who later turned out to be the owner's wife), the owner and another couple. They all could not have been... More

My husband found this place for me since I really enjoy seafood and Italian food. We both were happy with the meals we had....chicken parmesan and salmon in a lemon wine sauce. They were delicious. Service was great and we will definitely return there soon!

Carmine's is an intimate family friendly restaurant with very good food and friendly service. We had a wonderful Christmas Eve experience. They took a reservation for 12, had our table ready for us, and gave us just a delicious meal. We have had horrible big city experience with Christmas Eve reservations, and it was refreshing to have everything happen as... More

This is a quaint little place that is not bad. The chef is definitely not local. Not sure where he came from but I'm glad he came! Genuine Italian food cooked right and the gravy is the real deal. The prices are a little higher than other local places but they are fair for the quality of the food. Sit... More

We were staying the night at the local Holiday Inn and checked Trip Advisor for a place to eat. As we headed through the lobby the desk clerk was recommending it to another couple. The swordfish special was the best my wife ever had, and my veal Marsala was wonderful. Bread and oil was great, tiramisu desert was a perfect... More

Excellent food in a small town casual setting, with real candles and a real red rose on the tables...and white tablecloths. Lobster ravioli, good warm white bread with herbed/olive oil and salad: all yummy! We'll return.

We just love Carmine's. It is consistent and any restaurant that has someone like Nicole there waitressing year after year has to be doing something right! It is small town America at its best, located in the historic downtown. The linguine is fresh made and silky as are the gnocchi. I love the heart arabiatta sauce on linguine, my husband... More

Gravy almost as good as my moms is not often found in a small town restaurant off of I 95. The service was attentive the owner was lovely! Cant wait to get back to Walterboro and... More

Small and cozy and located right in downtown, this restaurant had really good food. The side of vegetables was particularly well seasoned. The wine by the glass was good as well.

We were looking for a 'different' restaurant during our trip south and that can be daunting while traveling the US95 corridor thru the southeast states. We were pleasantly surprised to find Carmines tucked in to a quiet business street in Walterboro. Not pretentious but well above the formica table restaurant with low lighted and attractive decor. Wait staff attentive and... More
