General Elliott Inn is a special place with great food, outstanding service, charming ambiance and unsurpassed hospitality. Owners Kay & Steve always exceed your expectations. This is my 7th or 8th time there and I never miss the opportunity to have dinner there when I am in the area. They earn my highest recommendation year after year.

This has become our favorite place for special evenings. The owners and staff go beyond what is expected each time we visit. This place is gorgeous, has great food, and an excellent wine selection. We had cocktails and appetizers on back porch. Just a perfect evening. Thanks to everyone there!

My husband and I have had the pleasure of dining at the General Elliott numerous times. We have dined there at least once a month over the past two years and have introduced several family members and friends to the General Elliott who are now frequent patrons. The food is some of the finest that I have ever eaten. With... More

We visited the General Elliot Inn for a nice dinner with friends. The setting is very rural, but attractive. The Inn, also a bed and breakfast, is a newer building made to look old. It is quaint and filled with antiques. The owners/hosts, Steve and Kay are charming and make you feel welcome. The service was excellent. Overall the food... More

Steve and Kay have created a marvelously warm and welcoming atmosphere in which to enjoy Kay's delicious meals. We love coming here and especially look forward to cooler weather the next two months when we will be able to dine outside on the wide front porch soaking up the beautiful Aiken weather. Reservations are a must and your dinner entree... More

This was the first time we went to General Elliot's Inn with some friends. We were greeted at the door by the owner. The service was excellent and very attentive. It was the best scallops I have ever had. The house is gorgeous and very comfortable. I will be going back to General Elliot's for sure. Love the owners, they... More

We had a private birthday party at The General Elliott Inn. Kay and Steve, the owners, along with their wait staff were outstanding. We had a group of all ages for a birthday celebration. Their attitude of service, the meal and atmosphere were all above and beyond expectations. This is an exceptional restaurant! We are never disappointed.

This will not attract your attention at first glance because this is a very special place. The food is awesome. When making a reservation you must also select your meal choice. That's a unique concept but insures freshness of everything on your plate. Don't miss this one!

A pretty place, inside and out. But the service and meal did not live up to the rep. Service started out promptly, then fell off as the meal went on, until by the end, practically nonexistent, except to pass out the checks. Our party had several different meals, though a few people ordered the same items. The vegetables were good.... More

Just can't please some people. This was a table of eight and we provided a server for specifically and solely for the table. The seafood the reviewer mentioned were crab cakes.
