This is a meat and three restaurant. I had the grilled porkchop it was seasoned beautifully. Everything here tasted great and had so much flavor. I am definitely going back.

Compton's Kitchen is a family owned and operated restaurant famous for its breakfast fare. It is convenient to Knox Abbott Drive, Highway 1, Highway 378, State Street, and can be reached from downtown Columbia in 15 minutes. A friendly, "down home" feel, and generous servings. Not a clinker on the menu.

Visited Compton's due to the reviews in trip advisor and the restaurant was every bit as good as the reviews. The food was great! It's a local hometown crowd. Great food and good service. Would definitely recommend !

I enjoy the "down-home" cooking at Compton's Kitchen. The food is always great and the staff is always friendly and helpful and the food is served real fast. There are always friends there to talk with so this really makes this a special place to visit. Try it, it won't be your last!
