What Our Customers Are Saying

"Clark’s is easy to find, but hard to leave!”

"On our recent visit to some friends in Fayetteville, we stopped in Santee and visited Clark’s.

Our room was very comfortable and our meal in the restaurant was excellent. Staying at Clark’s was one of the highlights of our trip!

Also, we appreciated the gift shop and the Santee Digest.

Prior to our trip, I searched online for good places to stay. As I recall, we found you on the I-95 exit guide site.

We appreciate that Clark’s is family run and look forward to visiting again."


“Love this place. It never disappoints. Our traditional stop on our way to and from Florida so happy to find that they've reopened after carona shutdown ”

Clark's Restaurant, located in Santee, South Carolina, was a pleasurable dining experience. If you want the really good restaurants ask the locals. And the locals said to eat at Clark's. We sat outside in the courtyard, which was comfortable and quaint. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. The building is very nice, with an Inn attached. The food was good!

Mark M.

We stopped for the night this past Friday on our way home from Richmond and had a wonderful dinner in the courtyard. To the couple we met from Holly Hill who paid for our dinner, Semper Fi to your father and grandfather. We tried to pay it forward to our server and hope she benefits. Our fried chicken dinner was excellent. Our room was cozy and we met some great fellas from Millen Georgia (Go Dawgs!) and shared some laughs as well as drinks and cards. My wife had just lost her mother and the whole experience was salve to her heart. Looking forward to future visits.

“Just spent a beautiful weekend at Clark’s Inn – our little Williamsburg!! Love the Inn, the restaurant, the pub and the Gift Shop!! Thanks for a great weekend! Our 4th visit – and we’ll be back!”

M. Bisher

“We stay at here every time we drive down. The people are so nice ,the food from the diner is excellent. The breakfast is a full meal and they gave us a full container of coffee for the road. Great Place”

A. Weinberg

“We ate at the bar on the way up to Boston and absolutely loved the atmosphere and service. We decided to stay at the hotel on the way back. Rooms were beautiful and very reasonably priced. Had dinner at the bar and Jonathan, the bartender, remembered us! Made us feel very at home. We will definitely be staying here again and again on our travels!”

K. Manning

“Hubs and I fell in love with our dining experience five or so years ago, and make a point of stopping here every time we travel from Florida to North Carolina and Ohio. Finally spent the night this Spring and was delighted with our room and the swimming pool. Have recommended to many.”

T. McBride

“Awesome food and way above awesome staff! It’s Cheers x 10!“ A. Bendheim

“Absolutely enchanting! The atmosphere was beautifully relaxing, sophisticated yet unpretentious. My first, but certainly not my last, visit!”

J. Neal

“I had my wedding at Clarks inn on November 14th. I didn’t want to worry about setting up or breaking down so I left it up to them to set up the dining area and center pieces. It was absolutely gorgeous, I couldn’t have planned it any better! We got married in the small courtyard by the fountain and had ample room for our 60 guests. After dinner we moved across the parking lot to the Santee Room for the reception. It was so convenient having everything at one area! There was a set up for our DJ, the courtyard had a bonfire going for us with chairs as it was cold, and when the night was over we walked 30 feet to our honeymoon suite, can’t beat that!

Clarks was very accommodating, the food is beyond delicious! I highly recommend the tuna steak and I’m not a seafood person normally, it’s that good. The old charm and friendly staff make this place a must see if you’re looking for venues.”

J. Bush

Nice and clean, comfortable beds and included breakfast that was sit down restaurant quality. Great place to stop and rest if you are heading south on 95.

R Brittingham

Clarks is a long-term institution in Santee. The decor has dark wood splendor. The staff are always friendly and the food is above average.

S Weir

We enjoy having dinner in the bar area. The food is always very good! Since Clarke's INN is right off of I95 at exit 98 it is a hot spot for travelers.

S Rogers

Those Fried Mushrooms!!!! Well lit place to Supercharge your Tesla in the parking lot.

Paul Hoke

Always enjoy our stay at Clark's. Clean accommodations, great atmosphere and food!

T Eyre

What's not to love about Clark's Restaurant? Old time Southern charm and hospitality in a plantation looking building with a large bar area and separate dining room, even a gift shop! Delicious food, too!

G LeCompte

Stay here if you are on 95 near exit 98 in SC. The rooms are acceptable, each with it's own little library (bring books to donate) but the restaurant ambience cannot be topped! The bar, IMHO, is better than you will find anywhere on 95


Pleasant surprise on our stopover. Food is delicious and freshly made. Staff is very friendly. Would be back if in the area again

I Shashchuk

We went there for my mother in law's birthday. The room we had was quiet and comfortable. The staff were very nice. The food was amazing! Food service was slow but I promise it was worth the wait! We had the chicken, chicken livers, Monte Cristo sandwich (so awesome), fish, shrimp salad, and chicken salad. Everyone loved what they had!

T McClam

W Sadler

What a wonderful place great food and lodging is also great would stay here again.

E Andreas

Food was delicious. Service excellent. All staff members were wearing masks. We stop in here frequently to visit with our favorite bartender. Thank you, Danny.

J Lutz

I absolutely love this place. The food is really amazing and staff are so incredibly nice and accommodating. I use to cook professionally and also worked the front of the house too. If I was to open a a restaurant I'd want ppl like Edward and Dalton. Seriously made my day. This is an absolutely wonderful establishment and I will be back. Sunday evenings are my cheat night. This is been my favorite hamburger in quite a while. Fries and coleslaw were were equally perfect.

Brad B

delish! have the Sea Bass and check out the gift shop!

R Plunkett

Love Clark's Inn. Wished for softer pillows. Always like staying there.

K Kell

Very nice quaint surrounding southern flair. Good food good service

We stopped over night on way home to P.A. We both had the Filet and it melted in your mouth. Then we shared dessert, a large slice of Cheese Cake. VERY DELISH. Highly Recommended.

Amazing dinner outside at Clark’s... great food, nice ambience, top-notch service! Save room for dessert, the apple crisp is warm and gooey, complimented with ice cream.

M Olafsson

Thanks for supporting electric vehicle charging and sharing your space for restrooms!

Lauren H.

Great food, good service, and a very nice place to eat dinner

J Cosenza

Long journey down the east corridor, I found this establishment by the hotel. Very nice atmosphere and layout. Glad to see a rather super-sized portion of spaghetti and meatball, and a good sized red wine was a bonus. Bummer they had zero bread of any kind, but the very good service made up for that miss. I’d recommend stop here on your travels.

J Metz

Stopped in Santee SC on the way to Florida. Dinner at Clark's was excellent. Service was fantastic. Meatball appetizer was delicious. Fried chicken diner was very good.

Matt C

We were looking for a nice place to watch a virtual wedding and then have dinner after. They accommodated us so well. It was a lovely setting for a wedding. Great good and service as well.

A Brennan

The service was spot on. Our server Aaron was very kind and knew the menu well. The food was plated beautifully. Needed a little more season on the grits but overall good.

S Miller


L Dest

Thank you for providing restrooms for the Tesla Superchargers!

D Lemoine

Cute establishment with freshly cooked food. Quick too.

J Crooks

We've always enjoyed dining at Clark's when we are in the area!

B Race

Very nice Inn. Friendly management as well!

N Léger

We've always enjoyed dining at Clark's when we are in the area!

W Owens

Nice place!! Very clean and romantic

C Schoenfeldt Payne

Interesting old home motif. We stopped in for a Saturday lunch while traveling. Somewhat limited menu consisting mainly of paying sandwiches and salads with soup. Great atmosphere! Beautiful decor! It's well worth the stop if your travels take you by.

Jim O

What a charming lunch on lovely patio!
Pricey but a real treat compared to fast food options. The place reminds me of the way dining used to be. A nice relaxing stop when making the slog on I-95.

Patrick K.

Ordered delivery. This was the best meal that I could have ever dreamed of eating in a hotel room!!!! The COVID time we live in limits our options now a days but if I ever stop through Santee SC ever again I WILL eat here again! I wish I could have given them more stars! Great job! You guys knocked it out of the park.

M Thompson

Great food, friendly staff

R Tuck

After trying three or four restaurants that practiced "social distancing, face masks, etc., we walked into Clark's Inn and were immediately greeted and reassured they indeed followed these safely protocols. The servers were all wearing face masks and gloves. What a delight! In addition, the dining room was lovely, quiet, and the food delicious. This place is a real find.


Nice restaurant good food

S Jackson

My family has often eaten at Clarks when they travel and I finally got to experience just how delicious the food truly is. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The portions were generous and quite delicious. I would definitely suggest the Sea Bass or Roasted Chicken and the homemade desserts are definitely a great end to a delicious meal.

A pleasant surprise off I95!! We stopped here for lunch while traveling home. My husband got salmon and I had salad with honey chicken. We both had banana pudding for dessert (free with meals). It was very affordable too (less than $40 for us both). I still can't get over the price for such quality food. We cleaned the plates wasn't anything left! So good!!! Exit 98 in Santee, SC heading north!

If you own a Tesla, this is absolutely the best place around to stop for the night and get some rest. Clean and quiet rooms. Supercharger located in the same parking lot.

R Moore

We were visiting the area and stopped at Clarks for lunch. Greeted by a very friendly gentleman at the desk. It is a very pretty place. Our waitress, Sylvia was very nice. The atmosphere was beautiful and the food was great. We might go back one more time before we leave, it was that good. Social distancing and masks were worn. Highly recommend! I had soup and a salad, my hubby had a turkey panini. Date of visit: November 2020

Wonderful, clean and homey overnight stay and delicious restaurant!

I was traveling & enjoyed a meal at Clark's. The food was delicious & the service prompt and friendly. I was very pleased to find the restaurant practicing the social distant rules along with sanitation. The ambiance was was relaxing and quit unique. I am looking forward to my next visit.

Had Thanksgiving dinner here with 4 friends. We were taken very good care of throughout our entire meal. The meal was plentiful and delicious. I will definitely go back to try it again to eat from their regular menu. Very kind people working diligently to make your visit perfect.

The food was good and the service was great

B Kaserman

The chicken pasta is delicious! I’d come back for sure! The staff was very kind and we got our plates really fast.

A Paola Vasquez Díaz

All good is AMAZING, but the Apple crisp with ice cream is an absolute must!!!

K Elyard

Always excellent service and great food. Never a complaint with anything they do

E Lawless

The stay was fabulous; the room very clean and beds comfortable. Our dinner was very good and waiter, Tyler, was tops! We wish him well in his military career. We will come back.

J O'Hara

The place to go for dinner and cocktails!

S Burnette

My wife and I enjoyed a very good Southern Fried chicken dinner which came with green beans & mashed potatoes. Also shared a Bleu Cheese Cranberry salad. Had the dinner delivered to our Santee-area hotel room. Delivery person was prompt and very courteous. Highly recommend it!

Glenn R

Beautiful and classy restaurant. The food was excellent as well as the service. We had the seafood combo (shrimp oysters and scallops) and it was absolutely fresh and fried perfect. The house wine is amazing! I had no idea this place would be so nice. The dining area is so beautiful and the place was impeccably clean.

Glenn R

Bob is the best!! After driving all day through rain and fog...we were grateful for the warm welcome that Bob provided. I had a fabulous cranberry and pecan salad with a sweet Italian homemade dressing for my dinner. My husband had blackened seafood with coleslaw and corn Parmesan grits, which he enjoyed. We shared a special Valentine’s desert of pecan pie!


Awesome food and great service! Can’t wait to return

Cassie B.

Very nice. Shower was a disappointment as there's little water pressure. Otherwise very nice.

Angi D.

Outstanding fried chicken

Eric P.

We were traveling and happened upon Clark's Inn. We had a great dinner and everyone was so wonderful and friendly. The person in the gift shop shared the history and the story of this family owned grand establishment. Thank you and for anyone in the area make it your choice for dinner or a special getaway destination.

Tim S.

I had the Sea bass with grits and the vegetable casserole. Absolutely delicious. Unfortunately for me I couldn’t eat it all I will eat the rest later. My daughter had the filet with green beans cooked with charred corn and the mashed potatoes. She loved hers as well. My husband had the liver and onions. It was devoured. When we come back to this area we will definitely be back. Don’t hesitate to visit you won’t regret it

Robyn K.

Great food during the pandemic. Good service. Best restaurant in santee

Jon B.

Lovely decor, good lunch.

Kathy L.

Wife and I are from Canada. For the past 12 years we travel to Santee to play golf . Always stay at Clarkes . They treat us King and Queen for 8 days . We missed 2020 because of closed borders and COVID . It was a sad annual week . Cant wait for this year . It is an amazing stay . Everyone goes out of their way for you. Keep the southern feel and hospitality. And , the golf courses , to die for . See you again this year , I hope .

Excellent food, nice outdoor seating. Very classy place to stop and eat.

Matthew I.

Great food and classic “old school” Southern charm. You won’t be disappointed.

David S.

Good food, good service. Beautiful, traditional decor. Only negative is that it was cold today and the fireplace wasn't on

Rich and Mary Lou D.

Just stopped by for a quick meal along a road trip and was completely dazzled by the bacon cheeseburger! Hand crafted, nicely sized patty cooked perfectly rare. It made the whole drive worthwhile. Keep up the great work!

Bert N.

Great food and service as usual.

Timothy H.

Nice country setting, waiters are prompt and nice. She also check on her customers in a mannerly way. I will go their again whenever I'm passing through.

Kimberly H.

Great service, great food

Micahel G.

We ate at the restaurant. The food was good and the staff did a good job with mask use.

Alec D.

Didn’t expect to get such a great meal on a stopover along I95 and it was packed on a Monday night! We grabbed the last table in the bar.


Great service and great food!! The gift shop is adorable too. We will definitely come back next time we are in town!!

Charlotte R.

Just had the most delicious dinner......fried chicken livers appetizer, blackened bass with Creamy grits and salmon with honey syrup. Wish this place was in New Jersey!!

Luise Hynes C.

Pleasant place for lunch. Enjoyed my salad and sandwich. Nice patio out back for outside dining.

Marilyn S.

I love the ambience, the fact they were open on Easter and the food never disappoints. I will come back when traveling through the area.

Alan B.

My wife and I spent a few days at a Wyndham resort in Santee SC last Fall and was trying to find a decent place to eat. We really weren't in the mood for fast food so we asked a few locals at the resort for a few recommendations. Clarke's is one of the locations that was recommended as a semi-formal dining venue. We were still in pandemic mode so we dined outside in the courtyard. Since we were in the south I thought I'd go all in and order some chicken gizzards for appetizer. We weren't disappointed by these well seasoned and crisply fried treats. Continuing with the southern motif I went with the fried chicken entre. The chicken was also well seasoned, crispy on the outside and juicy and tender, but not greasy, just like Sothern fried chicken should be. My wife had the low country seafood medley; which was also well seasoned and tasty.

One of the nice things about Clarke's is that it's literally minutes from I95 which means that even if you are literally just passing through, you can stop and grab a home cooked meal in a very quaint and respectable establishment.


Great social distancing practices. Limited lunch menu, fast service, classy dining room. Convenient location right off I-95 for travelers.

Erik J.

Lovely inn. Chicken livers and shrimp corn chowder v good!

Laurel A.

Wonderful oasis in the middle of all the chains. Rooms were clean and decorated in the period. We spent time outside on the garden furniture enjoying the warm evening. Our dinner at the restuarant was delicious from the blue cheese cranberry salad, the low country stir fry to the housemade apple crisp. A great experience we will definitely repeat.

Michael M.

Food is excellent! A quiet romantic place

Jackie W.

Food was excellent. Very generous portions.

John S.

good food great service! awsome Atmosphere

Gary D.

What a lovely surprise! After a long day driving from PA toward Savannah we stopped here for dinner. Right off 95 so our expectations were not tremendously high. The food was fabulous. My husband got shrimp and grits and we ordered fried green tomatoes for an appetizer. I got the shrimp and corn chowder and salad for dinner. Everything was delicious. The dining room was lovely with the tables distanced, a nice warm ambience. Our server was Alexis and the service was lovely, including our bus person whose name I did not catch. Prices were very reasonable. Topped it off with chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream which was delightful. We will plan to make this a nice stopping point in the future. There’s a great gift shop attached to the restaurant to Mandarin.

Kathy H.

Great place to have a nice meal with an at home feel. I was in the town of Santee for work and we stopped in for a business lunch. Very traditional and charming decor. Great service, socially distancing between tables was enforced and the food was delicious!

Luisa R.

My husband saw their billboard sign. What a delightful restaurant. The staff is very attentive but not intrusive. There is a limited menu for lunch but with enough variety for everyone. The outdoor dining area is lovely and very peaceful. The food was very good. Portions were generous. My husband really enjoyed the Swai entree. All items include dessert.

This is the half way point between our homes. This place is worth stopping at. The food was amazing, the service was amazing and the rooms are quaint and clean. This will be our new midway point. Our only disappointment is we didn’t find this hidden gem sooner. This will be the first of many trips and we will share with our friends. #supportlocalfamilybusiness

Ginger P.

Great Southern Charm. Food is great, service is great, friendly people.

Ginger P.

Fabulous restaurant and awesome food! Atmosphere is tops and just chill and eat at the bar if you can!!

Robert H.

Great food and service. enjoyed it!

Bonny J.

My wife and I visited one of our favorite Santee restaurants, Clarks. My wife ordered the ribeye special and I ordered their famous fried chicken. The food was excellent and the service was excellent. Our waitress even reminded me that it would take a little extra time because the chicken is cooked only when ordered. It was worth the wait. Thanks for the excellent service and food.

Robert M.

Loved it; food, atmosphere and staff were wonderful.

Lynn L.

Definitely one of the best tasting Southern Fried Chicken meals we’ve ever had! Fresh, crisp, and so worth the wait!

Ingrid L.

Lovely spot with old school charm. Meat entrees were well seasoned and cooked, and the service was excellent. Vegetables however were canned and bland.

Matthew B.

Always elegantly excellent

William R.

Service,food and waitress were great,we will be back.Need to try the Blue cheese cranberry salad it is to die for

Bonnie H.

Food and the inn are great

Rick H.

We were a little early for dinner and came in through the patio door because it said restaurant on that side. We didn’t see anyone as we wandered to the front desk through the dining room and a quaint seating area with a fireplace. We didn’t find anyone at the desk but a lady came out of the office and even though they were closed she was very gracious and apologetic (although we were not supposed to be there) and said we could wait at the bar. She rounded up a server to take our drink order. We decided to eat in the bar and Mark took very good care of us. We had the appetizer of the day, meatballs with marinara sauce. Excellent flavor and texture! I had the seafood platter and hubby had the filet mignon . Both meals were prepared perfectly and were delicious! We plan to stay at the Inn if we are ever in the area again. I highly recommend Clark’s Inn and Restaurant


I stopped here years ago after a long PA start very early in AM. I remembered how nice it was right off of I-95 and how nice the people were. I looked it up today and was so happy to see Clark's is still there! You will really enjoy Clark’s

Kimberly G.

Good food, nice place, low on staff so you should be patient when busy.

Anthony B.

Lovely facilities. Room decor exceptionally well done.

Kerrie A.

The food is kind of pricey but it's such a nice hometown restaurant. The servers are great and they are practicing social distancing. I have been here quite a bit with my parents and they love it. They have this 60 year old apple crunch desert and it's amazing. To sum it up imagine an Old Cracker Barrel but completely authentic. Definitely a must stop and see.

Shelandria J.

Nice, clean, dog friendly, Tesla Supercharger

Ann H.

Food was great

Lynn F.

Lovely setting, attentive & friendly staff. We enjoyed our lunch very much.

Rosemary S.

What a great find!!

Patricia P.

Good food and hospitable atmosphere

Matthew F.

My wife and I stopped here, and it was very delicious. I think all the other complaints those people you just can’t happy! Service was great food was good and wait time was perfect. Will come back again!

Tony M.

Nice dining venue. Dining room followed covid procedures. Food was good as was the service. Nice selection of specials. Will definitely be back to try some of their other specials

Phillip D.

Our favorite stop on the way to NY for the last7 years. Great food and service!

Donna T.

It's lovely inside the bar. We had chicken livers. Yum

Patsy P.

Great lunch

Tom S.

Great food even though they forgot to put the kielbasa in my wife’s shrimp and kielbasa dish.

Jonathan R.

Stopped here many times , as always a great place to stay and eat .

Mike C.

Nice hotel and good people. But they need to rethink the pillows on the bed. Too little and flat. Disappears because the gap in the mattress and headboard.

Patty C.

We loved this family owned restaurant! The atmosphere here was upscale hunting lodge setting. Nice bar and gift shop! Baked chicken with rice and green bean casserole sides was delicious with plentiful portions! The Hamburger steak (topped with mushrooms &I minis:) dinner was also very good. It came with delicious mashed potatoes & mixed veggies! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The prices were just a little on the high side, but again, it is a bit upscale (but don’t worry about attire because causal dress is acceptable)

L Stanley

Terrific place

John P.

Food and outdoor dining was wonderful!!

Linda R.

Very nice sit down meal in a beautiful setting. I would not have expected such a lovely dining option directly off the highway.

Sarah B.

Excellent food. Friendly staff, very professional. Service a little slow but they were obviously short on staff.

Debi H.

Stopped here many times, as always a great place to stay and eat.

Mike C.

Nice place to eat on a Sunday

Phillip B.

Husband and I stayed at a nearby hotel on our way to Florida. We were delighted to find a”real” restaurant during our stopover. We arrived at dinner time without reservations, but were quickly seated in the bar area. Service was a bit slow and we could tell some of the staff were new. However they were all very attentive and took very good care of us. Nice selections on the menu leaning toward low-country dishes, but also a good variety of meats and fish. Our food was well prepared and delicious and compliments to the bartender for the martinis! The decor was elegant with paneled walls, etc. we will be driving to Florida again in late July and look forward to another dinner here when we stop for the night.

Bonnie C.

Stopped in during a Tesla charge. I needed coffee and after looking at the online menu, decided on the Apple crisp. This place also has an adorable gift shop. Both coffee and the crisp were excellent as was my service. I am going to tell some local friends about this place.

Dianne M.

We highly recommend both the restaurant and gift shop! Lovely people and delicious food about 2 minutes from I-95!

Linda W.

Traveling, we stopped and had lunch. Great food, beautiful place. Gift shop was rather pricey, but cute. Would definitely like to visit again. Cranberry Chicken salad is great!

Perry D.

We are very delighted with the fine dining and wonderful service at your restaurant. Bob was our server again for the second time. We drove to Virginia and we stopped for lunch, we liked so much that we decided in our way back to Florida to stop for dinner. This is a fine 5 ⭐️ restaurant. The food is delicious, the ambiance and decor very invited. The gift shop is a must to visit. We bought several beautiful gift in our way going North and again going back home. We decided to stay overnight. The room decor is colonial and very attractive. Location right out off 95. Highly recommended.

Inex P.

Great place, great service, great food, thank you!!!

Ruslan S.

Service was very good (Alexis was server), food was good as well. Outdoor seating was nice after driving. Wine list was better than expected. Was a nice spot along 95 for dinner.

Kristen S.

Excellent! Wish I stopped sooner. Why stay at a nondescript roadside motel when you can receive a warm welcome, cozy room and charming ambience all while being a stone's throw from I-95. Though I did not try the attached restaurant, it looks charming. The grounds of Clark's are lovely and well maintained. I'll be planning my highway trips around stopping here. They are doing a great job!

Pamela J.

The dining room is elegant and nicely lit to enjoy an intimate family meal after a long day of traveling. I enjoyed sea bass and my husband had a seafood stir fry. Both meals were delicious. Our son enjoyed spaghetti and meatballs which I tasted since we are from NJ and suspect that we are the only ones who can make this dish. They were very good. Our waitress was very attentive and the service was top notch.

Ellen M./p>

Delicious meal, a bit pricey. Food was delivered quickly after ordering our entrees. Waitress attentive.

Frances K.

Food was excellent, service good Charming rooms

Valerie B.

Nice place but the food was a bit off for my dining guests and I.

Aiden R.

Traveling, we stopped and had lunch. Great food, beautiful place. Gift shop was rather pricey, but cute. Would definitely like to visit again. Cranberry Chicken salad is great!

Perry D.

Five stars for this eloquent dining establishment. Yes I was originally drawn to the name but the idea of fine dining while on a road trip was quickly accepted thereafter. Food and service was excellent. The kitchen prepared the food quickly too so the experience was expedited and in our traveling favor. Should probably go without saying but maybe not the first pick for the budget thrift. If your tired of the chains and fast food, you’ll love this place!

Chris C.

Homey, clean and comfortable. Stop there whenever driving between Florida and New Jersey , New York

Lauren L.

We had a very nice dinner. Met with brother & sister in law, who were staying at Santee State Park. We had a table in the lounge, which at about 4:30 pm was quiet. Marc N was our server. Very pleasant and congenial. They had the Sea Bass and Cheeseburger entrees, while we both had the Low Country Stir Fry. Everything was delicious and well-prepared. Served promptly, but long enough you knew it wasn't a rush job. My sister in law & I shared a wonderful creme brulee cheesecake. Most definitely will return.

Laura H.

Ate at restaurant only. Good meal, great desserts.
