Possibly the best steak dinner value in town. Great servers and great food. Very cool building and even better deserts. This is a must if your in Camden looking for a good meal.

We had a business dinner with 5 people, and the food and service was very good. Desserts were also very tasty.

We have visited several times, the service is always exceptional, very friendly and polite staff. On Sunday we took our grandson and his girl friend, home on Spring Break. They absolutely love it.

I thoroughly enjoyed my pork tenderloin dinner. It was seasoned to perfection and my rice and mixed vegetables sides complemented the flavors. They have a good wine list & I will definitely be back.

Sam Kendall's is the best upscale restaurant downtown. They have outdoor seating and a good menu with a nice selection of wine. The decor is pleasant and simple. Our food was delicious, reasonably priced and served in a timely manor. Our waiter was attentive and polite. When visiting the area I would return for steak or seafood.

We tried this restaurant, after recommendations from many of the local shopkeepers, who highly recommend it. The fresh fish was amazing and the short ribs were to die for, prepared in a Cabernet sauce. It's a little in the moderate to high price range, but it is a very nice atmosphere, ask for a booth away from the bar, so... More

Great menu and atmosphere. The staff could be a little more friendly but it will be worth your time to visit and try their selections.

A friend had recommended this restaurant some time ago and I am most glad I had a chance to sample their cuisine. Having roots of my own in New England I embraced the opportunity to partake of a lobster roll and was surprised to find one in the midlands of South Carolina that was equal to any that I have...
