Small café in the heart of downtown Georgetown. The staff was very friendly and the prices for lunch are reasonable, rice and gravy was very good but the fried chicken was awful dry. That's it!

A small, quaint, locals restaurant right on Front St. serves GREAT meals at unbelievable prices. Nothing fancy, rather plain, but you won't find a better deal anywhere. Can't wait to return there our next time we're in Georgetown.

We loved the shrimp & grits with fried green tomatoes and the key lime pie. It felt more like a diner (that hasn't changed in 50 years) than a cafe. Prices were very reasonable and the kids menu was great for our kids. Our 5 year old tried (and liked) the pickled okra. The service however was not particularly friendly... More

Once again, great selection of home town favorites, great service, wonderful unspoiled atmosphere and very fair prices. Always great to visit when home.

Thomas Cafe is a magnet for local residents and those who live in some of the communities over the bridge in Pawleys Island. You can taste the South in every dish, whether it is a simple preparation of eggs over easy or the indigenous shrimp and grits (frankly, the only way I like grits, so I am ecstatic that potatoes...

What a great way to start your morning with local families and visitors eating and enjoying themselves in a very casual and friendly atmosphere- no pressure, no worries. The food was exactly as expected, fresh, hot and had a hint of that local twist that makes you smile. The eggs, shrimp and grits and bacon were terrific. I sat next... More

Though we go to Georgetown often, we went into Thomas Cafe for the first time ( for breakfast) today.Lots of good food for a small price. They were out of hash but made me up some special and didn't charge for it. Eggs were fresh, bacon was crispy, and my dish came with pancakes and fresh from the oven biscuits.... More

Enjoyed the shrimp & grits as well as the high level service that we came back the next day for breakfast. Just as good food as day before, servers on top of things promptly and went out of their way for dietary request for breakfast, thank you. Old style café/diner experience and one of the "stand outs" of the many... More

This is a typical small town cafe that offers daily specials (meat and three) as well as sandwich fair. Since we were there for lunch, we opted for the crab cake and flounder sandwiches. Now you would think being on the water (the town sits on the river and the back of the restaurant is on the dock, but you... More
