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

Still good but maybe not as good as when the girls owned it. Crab cakes are good and fresh fish is always good.

A more formal atmosphere, but I still felt comfortable in my shorts and husband had a nice collared shirt on although most others had come from church or were dressed a bit better. Service was prompt as I would have expected and food took a little longer than I expected with arriving just before noon with only 3 tables being... More

Never, till now, had we returned 2 nights in a row to the same restaurant while traveling! Rice Paddy had a wonderful selection on their menu. The service was outstanding. Our server had been there 18 years (she didn't look old enough!), and now her son is working there. She was very attentive, without hovering. The fish (grouper) was amazing,... More

Check my earlier review of The Rice Paddy, one of the best lunch destinations, not only in the area, but even including Charleston, an all-time favorite for dining. I'll echo some of the latest comments. The Rice Paddy is in a perfect location. It's an excellent space with great floors, windows, high ceilings, good lighting, and filtered sunlight. And the...

Disappointed that the Rice Paddy is no longer open for lunch. Now opens at 5pm. Service good but something missing from the dining experience. Food ok, not great as it had been in the past. Bar still a lively option.
