The General Elliott Inn is one of our favorite restaurants in the Aiken area. The owners, Kay and Steve, do a wonderful job in providing delicious meals with specials that change weekly in a quaint atmosphere that is relaxed, personal, and friendly. The servers are friendly, professional, and efficient. We enjoy bringing guests here for dinner because we know that... 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!

The service was impeccable and the food oh so delicious. Great meals in a friendly atmosphere. Best restaurant in Aiken. There were four in our party and everyone had an incredible dinner with a delightful experience. Lovely setting and extremely clean. The General Elliott is a five star plus - 5*+

My family and I visited General Elliot Inn this past weekend. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The staff was super nice and the food was impeccable. We're all very excited to bring more friends and family to enjoy this restaurant. Thank you for such an incredible night.

I attended a groomsmen dinner this past week at the General Elliot Inn. The wait staff and owners were very delightful. We did have a large group of children there that made things very messy for everyone. The parents were oblivious to them even with having a nanny there. The owner had to round everyone up before she served us... More

Owner Kay was rude to our guests and her staff. Told us we could not leave our seats in the dining room or her wait staff would get confused. The food was average at best and she and her husband treated the children in our party very badly. Would not recomend this place if it was the only place available.... More

I was looking for a nice restaurant to take my wife, four of my children, my son-in-law and six of my grandchildren. I found General Elliott. I thought it curious there was no children's menu on Mothers Day -- I had always thought having children was the usual route to motherhood. I called to ask about children's portions. The lady...

My wife, Kay, and I have owned the Inn for eight years. The Inn is fine dining and has seven tables, six in the main room and a large table in a formal dining room. Because of our small size, we have never pernitted meal sharing.This reviewer called two weeks prior to Mother's Day and wanted the formal room for... More

We (out-of-towners) treated our father to a special birthday dinner at this inn named after Brigadier General Stephen Elliott, Jr. AND our hosts. From being greeted at the door by husband and wife hosts, Steve Elliott and Kay General (General Elliott, get it?), and assistant, Jazz, to the farewell hugs, handshakes and wave from the front porch when we departed,...
