My wife and I have been married 42 years today and wanted something different for an anniversary dinner but did not want to drive to downtown Columbia. Due to unavoidable circumstances I could not plan ahead so was looking for something a little closer and found Sam Kendall's on line this evening. Great find. The atmosphere is really nice in...

After visiting the Camden Revolutionary War Park, my wife, myself, and our grandson stopped here for lunch. Located in downtown Camden, this restaurant is in a historic building (men's store according to our waitress). The interior appears very elegant, but the menu prices were reasonable. Between the three of us we had the crab cake burger, the cheese burger, and... More

Visited this establishment about 5 times. Food is good and interesting choices but a little pricey for what you get. Nice atomosphere. Great for couples and usually ok for conversation unless it's Happy Hour...

We found ourselves in Camden South Carolina racing at Carolina Motorsports Park. We are on the road a bunch and always in search of good food and a quality place to wind down.
