Ate here on Mother's Day evening and expected a limited menu. Full menu was available. Had beef barley soup which was very greasy, shrimp cocktail was great and my husband had a steak which he said was very good. Wait staff very nice, although a bit slow. Would definitely return.....

We had 16 guys in Santee in early April for a golf trip. We called and gave them a 2 hour notice and they were able to accommodate us all in the same room. Food was fantastic. Seafood platter was my choice and it was great. Definitely making it a stop every year

Split a really great sandwich with salad at a reasonable price for very nice ambience. The gift shop is a cornucopia of well chosen items and at reasonable prices with something for everyone. Did some Christmas shopping! 95% of the cost of our visit was spent in the gift shop LOL!

This restaurant is conveniently located across the street from a Holiday Inn, making it a good stop for dinner on the way back North from Florida. The service was delightful, and my husband's tuna steak was large and cooked just right. My flounder was frozen not fresh and wasn't very good. Order carefully and stick with basics and you'll be...

So good! The atmosphere is very elegant, but travelers are welcome. Love the little gift shop on the way in. No dogs. RV parking across the street. Fried chicken perfectly seasoned & not greasy. Chicken salad was perfect. Tomatoes & lettuce with balsamic vinaigrette that was so fresh as well. Lovely lovely stop. Don't miss this!

We stopped her for lunch after visiting the Antique Mall and prior to continuing our drive into Hilton Head Island. What a GREAT find!!! The Inn is lovely with beautiful old-style decor that takes you back to a quieter time when things were slow paced and people took their time to relax over a good meal or a drink. The... More

Service was not quite up to par. Perhaps just an off night Facility looked fine. Somewhat dated decor-- old world First attempt at the rib eye was a bit raw but kitchen repaired to medium rare without any difficulty
