The interior of the restaurant was nice and fairly quiet. The staff were friendly and attentive. The quality of the steak was good. The house salad was very plain. Limited, uninspired, side choices. I rated the value low because the entrees were priced quite high for a small town restaurant.

Husband and I went the night before Valentine's Day. Not impressed as usual. Bread was OK. Salad was small very elementary. Our stuffed mushroom appetizer was great. We ordered the filet. My husband got a large one - mine was a good bit smaller. And not tender. I asked for it medium but it was totally well done. The staff... More

This was our first visit to Sam Kendall’s, and I have to say that I was not at all impressed; especially for the money spent. The wait staff was friendly but a little slow, and not all were familiar with all of the menu items. We were asked if we wanted any bread. This should be automatically put on the... More

Let me start by saying that this is a review for spoiled Europeans. Cause that's what I am. I can't handle greasy, salty food, and I find pasta and rice generally over cooked in this otherwise lovely country. So this may have something to do with me sending my pork chops back, and hiding my uneaten chicken breast under the... More

Super slow service. Very dark seating in a booth. It was our wedding anniversary dinner. The waitress just shrugged it off and muttered something.Very "blah" food for $80. Won't go back.

This is a superb downtown choice in beautiful Camden, SC. The atmosphere is relaxed, friendly and inviting. The menu food is carefully prepared American//southern cuisine.

Food and service were excellent! Large group was well taken care of. Wine and after dinner Port were excellent recommendations. The atmosphere is lively (maybe a little loud for a very intimate dinner), but just right for a great meal with friends and family. Owner stopped by and chatted with us after dinner. Would recommend this place to my most... More
