We just left the General Elliot and as usual the food was excellent and the country inn atmosphere is delightful. I read a couple of resent reviews and was not sure they were at the same place. I have been taking friends to the Inn for about 4 years now dining there about 4 or 5 times a year. The... More

Christmas dinner was wonderful! It was like eating with the family, but the food was even better than Mom's. The prices more than make up for the drive (which is a lovely one I must add). I suggest you try it out. Oh! You have to order ahead and have reservations.

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

Our main dining room has six tables and there are two wait staff in that room at all times. Our staff is... 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
