Brand New Chef March 15

Ate on reccomend from a friend. Was concerned about poor reviews and small crowd. Give it a chance - the new chef hired is coming out with a new menu and service was very good. The crab cakes were divine and the lobster macaroni and cheese excellent. The chef will prepare any dish as you like it... read more

Went for my birthday with friends and there is nothing on the menu that isn't absolutely delicious. Great service, excellent food and nice atmosphere! Recommend it highly!

A friend and I stopped in historic Georgetown for a bite to eat while traveling between Charleston and Myrtle Beach. There were several restaurants along the waterfront, but we chose the Rice Paddy, having not check TripAdvisor beforehand. I wish we had. Even though it was nearing 2PM, we should have realized that an empty restaurant was not a good... More

I went here based on a recommendation of a local as the best fine dining in Georgetown. I should have read the reviews here instead. The waitperson was very nice and not at all knowledgeable. There are no signature cocktails, so I reverted to a scotch which was a skimpy pour. I had the beet salad expecting fresh roasted beets... More

I've been eating at the Rice Paddy for twenty years. Once the new owners took over they increased the prices and decreased the quality. I had never had anything from there that wasn't delicious until recently. I've eaten there 5 times in the last 3 years and each time it was sub par. It's sad to see my favorite restaurant... More

Terrible service waited 1.5 hrs for a soda. Food was awful and cold. My wife had to ask what it was when the server brought her meal. Waitstaff was not trained and not knowledgeable about menu or how to take an order

We unfortunately also had dinner at the Rice Patty in Georgetown SC, Valentine's Day 2015. First, when we ordered drinks our waitress asked us if we knew if the bartender would know how to make them. My husband and I ordered one of their speciality drinks which we had to return. We were informed that that drink is often returned!... More

Had reservations last night (Valentine's Day). Reservations for 7PM, got there at 6:10 to have drinks at the bar. Gave our name and sat and waited at bar. Pleasant dialogue with owner as it was starting out slow. By 6:45 business started to pickup. Folks at bar that came in waited as long as 20 minutes to even put a... More
