I don't ever give five star reviews......

But if I did this place would get one. Great local fare with good service. The city just needs to get the vagrants under control and Anderson will get downtown revitalized as long as businesses like Summa Joes stay in town.

I sat at the small bar (4 seats), which is not really a traditional bar but a peninsula housing the beer pumps etc and tended by one of the wait staff but ideal for me with a view into the kitchen for those that like that. Even fairly early on a Sat all the tables were full and there were... More

Onion soup so salty, it couldn't be eaten. Sandwich nothing special, had to use a knife to cut the mozzarella.

Good food, but nothing to write home about. I tried it on a friend's recommendation and while it was good pizza, I don't think it had the wow factor people seemed to say it did. I would recommend it if you were looking for good pizza, but if you were looking for something truly special, probably not the best choice.

The grilled quail was delicious! We will be back again soon. Prices are reasonable and the service was great.

I have been to Summa Joe's a number of times and it has been excellent. Using the "farm to table" method of bringing fresh food to diners, it stays at the top of Anderson restaurants year after year. The only downside is the crowd - get there early if you want to eat as the place fills up fast. From... More

Wonderful locally grown fresh menu. Small and intimate atmosphere. Fun party lights on wall. Wait staff know their stuff. Desserts are not to be missed.

A nice dining spot in downtown Anderson. Good food and pleasant service (not speedy). Good for an occasional lunch.

Stopped at Summa Joe's for dinner based on Tripadvisor reviews. The restaurant is located in the downtown area of Anderson in an old storefront building. Seating choices are both inside or sidewalk table seating. The staff are all friendly and attentive as well as very knowledgable of menu choices. The menu offers a large variety of appetizers, salads, pasta, entrees,... More

One of my favorite local places to eat. House wine is really good. So many different and unique pizzas choices. Lollipop lamb chops are always good too. Everything is made fresh. Be sure to ask what kind of cake that have and share a piece. (or eat it by yourself)
