Rarely do I take the trouble of reviewing anything, let alone restaurants, but for Linda's Bistro I had to make an exception. On recommendation (this person must have terrible taste) I went to this restaurant with my elderly mother who was very excited about dining there. The restaurant is cute, a cottage/personal home, with the owner, Linda, acting as chef.... More

There is a fine quality to this place. The dining room is welcoming and tidy; the feeling is one of sports. Horse pictures - racing and others hang on the wall. A lovely stuffed bird flies over the bar. It is very tasteful inside. And the meals are tasteful too. Prepared individually by the chef and owner, the food is... More

My wife liked her steak very much (we both shared leftovers); I had a fish special that was OK but rather badly overpriced. Linda's years ago seemed like it was generally at the top end price-wise for the area, but is mostly competitive now with the better restaurants around, though not cheap.

Wonderful tasty food, coversation friendly atmosphere make this a great restaurant for a liesurely meal. Really enjoy the baby beef calve's liver, not a lot of restaurants carry this item! Salads are huge; easy to split across the 4 of us. Good wine selection reasonably priced.

Linda's Bistro is a small, quietly elegant restaurant thoughtfully decorated to reflect an "Aiken" ambiance.The service is professional and hospitable yet unobtrusive. Linda herself watches over her clientele carefully and her staff has been with her a long time, making for a seamless experience. The only criticism is the restricted, slightly expensive wine list.

Whenever we visit Aiken, we always make a point to stop at Linda's. The food is delicious and Linda is a hoot.

I have gone to Linda's for years and enjoy her menu and culinary skills. Linda's is a frequent stop when I visit Aiken. An added plus is her outstanding coffee. All menu selections are good so you can't go wrong regardless of your selection.

Lind's bistro is housed in an historic cottage - very quaint, clean, nicely lit and decorated. The menu is diverse - several choices under $20. My only criticism is the drinks. There is no real bar, so I think that the liqour is only whatever on the rocks. The alcohol is avg. $10 a drink - a carefullly measured shot... More

Her standard fare, such as lamb shanks, are good, but she is so erratic in her planning, scheduling holidays, etc. that she turns us off. We call for reservations as we are told to do and she either hangs up or says she has none, even before we give our names. Food is okay.
