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

This review should be rated about 3.68 but not 4, so I had to go with 3. Slow night, 2 other parties. Beautiful space in an old bank. SUMMARY: rock star shrimp and grits. Failures were (1) Salad was attractive but not cut into bite-sized pieces (2) Cafeteria quality salt and pepper complete with obligatory clogging (3) Rolls served after... More

This old bank building converted to a restaurant offers the ambience of yesteryear with the high ceilings, large windows and ever present vault. We ordered the light, smaller entrees, and were pleased with the quality of the food. The portions, as expected, were more modest than the prices. Being the first customers for dinner, service was somewhat slower than expected.

This restaurant has changed hands in the past couple of years and has slipped a little still it is a nice restaurant. Do an excellent job with seafood. Desserts feature homemade ice cream with peppermint and fudge sauce being a must.

One of the reasons I love this little town is the people and how they make you feel like you grew up here. I did not eat here on this visit but I saw some really great looking plates going out to the tables. I heard everyone speak of the quality and friendly service. I met friends at the bar... More

I was looking forward to visiting this restaurant again (last visit was excellent but several years ago) however I was extremely disappointed. The prices remain high but the quality has slipped way down. Out of four entrees only one was rated as good. First of all, three dishes were not available from the fairly limited menu (8:00pm on a Saturday... More

Our family has been to the Rice Paddy many times over the years, but this year will be our last. Six of us had dinner on a Tuesday night and they were unable to serve us in a professional, timely manner. Our server left for 15-20 minutes and never checked on us. One of the salads was brought out 10... More
