Searching for someplace different not far from home, I eagerly read the reviews of this "fine dining" establishment in Aiken SC. The reviews were all so positive, we decided to give it a try. Its a bit different; in an inn (B&B), open only on the weekends, the menu for those days is posted on the website. Well, I can... More

We started the night with a drink. They were the best martini's. The filet was ccooked perfect and had great flavors. Fresh fruit and veggies are served. Not frozen! Great place for a quiet night out.

We found this delightful restaurant / Inn in Aiken and had dinner. The atmosphere was very nice, pleasing, and just so welcoming. The "Hosts" were friendly, helpful, the bar just made me feel right at home and comfortable. Very Lovely house. Wooden floors that were amazing. The atmosphere inside somehow made me think of Paris, France. A jewel in the... More

This was the perfect place for my birthday dinner. My husband and I were greeted at the door by the owners Kay and Steve which set the tone for a memorable evening. The meal was pre-ordered and cooked to perfection by Kay herself. We thoroughly enjoyed the amazing presentation of sea scallops and filet with all the trimmings. Also want... More

4 of us recently enjoyed dinner at the General Elliott Inn - it was a lovely evening so we started with a drink on the porch. Each of us ordered a different item from the menu and all of us were very satisfied! Excellent food and service! Thank you!

I had a romantic dinner here with a special someone! Couldn't have picked a better place. We ordered our dinner ahead of time. A unique approach. The bar is romantic and cozy. Food - wow!

We found the General Elliott to be an outstanding choice! The food, wine, service, and facility exceeded our expectations. It's both elegant and casual. The equine setting around the area just makes it more appealing. Owners Kay and Steve were gracious hosts. Put it on your bucket list!
