The chatter in the foyer and the many patrons waving at friends seated at other tables were tip-offs that this is a local haunt, and the 20-minute wait suggested it is also very popular.

Thank you for the response. First of all I am very sorry you had a bad experience.

Second time eating at Chestnut Grill. The first time was a few years ago for dinner and it was not good at all. This time it was for lunch. I had clam chowder, fried shrimp, crab cake, sweet potato fries and a sticky croissant. Everything was good, nothing outstanding. Our waitress was great.

We happened to be in Orangeburg, South Carolina, looking for a late lunch and found the Chestnut Grill. Good food, good service, reasonable prices. Not particularly outstanding, but good comfort food and family friendly.
