So delicious! I have eaten here a handful of times, and everything I have ever ordered has been excellent. The chicken wings are deep fried and come covered in this tasty sauce (and I usually don't like anything deep fried). The Asian cauliflower is such a great side, better than french fries and the salads make a great meal as... More

Right in the quaint little downtown of Fort Mill. Felt homey and comfortable walking in and with about a 15 minute wait for lunch we had already checked out the menu. Ordered the tempura fried green beans that were lightly battered with a great dipping sauce. A must order. I had the chicken and waffles (finely chopped apple in the... More

I had the tempura fried chicken with mini waffles and it was one of the best meals I've had in quite awhile. My husband had the shrimp and grits, which he said was outstanding. We both shared an appetizer of fried green beans. They, too, were delicious. We'll definitely go back.

Lunch with family members. This place was recommended by someone we met the day before in another restaurant. Our server was Rebecca, who was very friendly, courteous and professional. Our questions on the menu and preparation were quickly answered and the results were outstanding selections of meals. Preparation and presentations were beautiful. Nice selection of wine by the glass. This... More

Great staff interaction. Nice wine and craft beer selection. The pulled pork sandwich was delicious as well as the 1/2 lb. burger. Fries need seasoning. Ambience was excellent. A couple of tv's at the bar. Overall, we will come back!

Wow - just wow! Unbelievably amazing food! Found this place on Yelp on a road trip thru SC. We had the wedge salad, the pulled pork nachos, the cole slaw, the scallops on goat cheese risotto, and most importantly the fantastic pork belly! All A+ dishes! And the maple syrup bacon ice cream for dessert was scrumptious!! Thank you to... More

Have come several times to Local Dish and always enjoy the visit. Service is kind and southern, and the food is delightful. Downtown Fort Mill is tiny but a throw back to old southern town. Simple tables in a simple square room. Get there early. On a Friday, seats are filled by 5:30 and on a weekday by 6pm. But... More

I chose to eat there for my birthday and I was not disappointed. Their menu has many choices and everything our group ate was perfect. It is a small venue, so be there when they open to get a seat. The ingredients were fresh as well and it was obvious in the quality of the food.

First time visit on Saturday evening, busy, 30-40 minute wait. In old Main Street facade, ample parking in back. Not much on decor but the dish I had was superb. John is the Owner, very cordial & knows not to bother the Chef at mealtime. Chef is excellent, creative & knows good food! We'll be back!

Thank John F
