My husband and I have had the pleasure of dining at the General Elliott numerous times. We have dined there at least once a month over the past two years and have introduced several family members and friends to the General Elliott who are now frequent patrons. The food is some of the finest that I have ever eaten. With respect to Ronald F, I have never had a meal there that was over seasoned and the portions are generous.
Kay and Steve are wonderful and welcoming and make us feel like family every time.

We are always pleased to hear from guests, it makes all our efforts worth while. By the way, we never ever salt fish or seafood dishes.
Thanks

We visited the General Elliot Inn for a nice dinner with friends. The setting is very rural, but attractive. The Inn, also a bed and breakfast, is a newer building made to look old. It is quaint and filled with antiques. The owners/hosts, Steve and Kay are charming and make you feel welcome. The service was excellent.
Overall the food wasn't bad, but was somewhat lacking. The scallops were very good if a bit salty. The accompaniments were good but there is no choice, you get whatever is being served that day. The portions were on the scimpy side ; the gentlemen's fish were very small pieces. The walleye in particular was not a quality cut and the "mud line" had not been removed from the salmon. For the price, the food should be of highest quality and more generous portions.

Steve and Kay have created a marvelously warm and welcoming atmosphere in which to enjoy Kay's delicious meals. We love coming here and especially look forward to cooler weather the next two months when we will be able to dine outside on the wide front porch soaking up the beautiful Aiken weather. Reservations are a must and your dinner entree is reserved ahead of time so make sure to call ahead to find out weekly specials. The General Elliott Inn is one of the best kept secrets in Aiken and dining there is a special treat for us.

This was the first time we went to General Elliot's Inn with some friends. We were greeted at the door by the owner. The service was excellent and very attentive. It was the best scallops I have ever had. The house is gorgeous and very comfortable. I will be going back to General Elliot's for sure. Love the owners, they were so friendly and welcoming.
