A little sad...

This place is a real paradox. Their food is actually pretty good. Not outstanding, but very good for Batesburg-Leesville. The service and apparent attitudes are a real killer though. It's like they are going out of their way to be less than welcoming. We too, incurred the wrath of the "lady at the... read more

Sunday lunch is always wonderful here! My husband and I also enjoy the Mike's Special wings and wing chips. The chicken salad is also delicious. If you are in the area, check out this wonderful cafe. Call ahead of time to make sure they are open.

Went in at 6:00 PM with a large party (14) for my sister's birthday supper. The restaurant was busy but they knew we were coming. They had tables ready and waiting. With the exception of 2 of us we all ordered something different. Every single order was correct and the meals were outstanding! Couldn't have asked for friendlier service or... More

A small cafe in Batesburg. I have eaten there with a friend of mine several times and each time the service has been poor. They actually start sweeping and mopping right underneath you as you are still trying to eat. The food is decent (not the best) but the service is just terrible. This last time was the straw that...

I have eaten here several times over the past few years. The food is always fresh and delicious! Today I had Mike's special spicy pimento cheese sandwich and it was sooo good! Better than the pimento cheese sandwich I had at a big name place in Columbia the other day. Offerings also include various sandwiches, soups, salads, burgers, desserts and... More

A wonderful little gem of a restaurant in the heart of BBQ country. Neighbor's Cafe offers an eclectic variety of food. From Pork Tenderloin to Chef Salads;Broiled Salmon to Hot Wings; Big Mike's Burger to Stacked Enchiladas. Everything is great. Oh, and did I mention the soups!? Shrimp bisque, Clam chowder and French Dip are just a few. Did I... More

Back to the Neighbors Cafe and had the pan seared Rainbow Trout special, and it was simply outstanding. Topped with crawfish and a light cream sauce, killer! Side of hot potato salad went perfectly too. Service was very fine, and a great place with a quiet ambiance that just fits the old decor. I will be back! BIG DOG

I live nearby and go here for lunch sometimes. Spectacular chicken salad, which is harder to find in SC than you would think (Just be sure to ask for extra mayo..). They offer different soups each day... if you are lucky enough to hit a day with the shrimp and corn chowder or the potato soup, you should give it... More

Have been to Neighbors Cafe in the evening a number of times, and regardless of what you order, the food is always impeccable. Set in the old historic Ridgell's Drug Store building, Mike, the chef, and his folks deliver a quality dinning experience every time whether an entree or my favorite of their sandwiches, the Triple Decker Club.
