Great Food!

The décor is 1970's , service is great and the food was really good! Had a shrimp and oyster combo. Cooked perfectly, seasoned just right. The cole slaw, an interesting mixture of cabbage, broccoli, bell pepper, dill, raisins and carrots was delicious. The side of fried okra was fresh and hot. The... read more

I was tempted to give an "Excellent" rating to Chestnut Grill, but since I have made only two visits thus far, I am being a bit conservative. I've dined here twice on trips between the Lowcountry and Midlands of South Carolina. It's a convenient distance at about halfway. The Grill has long lunch serving hours--longer than most--which is convenient, too.... More

I visited this restaurant was suggested by some of the residents of Orangeburg. The service was Great! Very attentive especially since it was late in the evening and it was several of us. My meal on the other hand was nothing special. I ordered a medium well steak and received a well done steak. My rice and broccoli was cold... More

Went to Chestnut Grill for a bite to eat and ended up in the bar area. We sat and enjoyed cocktails and ended up eating appetizers as the meal. Food was good and beverages appropriately chilled. There wasn't a crowd in the bar or the restaurant and it was a good place to relax and chill out. The last time... More

We went here for lunch after staying in Orangeburg for business meeting. Lunch was very good. Husband had lunch steak. Cooked nicely served with potato and fired okra. I had burger with sweet potato fries. Very good on both. We wanted dessert listed on board but not available due to back up orders as told by waitress. Take off board... More

Hubby and I stopped here for dinner tonight while traveling. They were very sweet and made a reservation for us. Scott was our waiter and he did a great job! We both loved our meals and don't miss out on their french fries! Way better than any we've ever had! Hubby had the prime rib and loved it. I had... More

A nice atmosphere and the waiter's are the best! The specials are the best pick of the night and much quicker to get to the table. A bar is always a plus if there is a wait time to be seated. This place has the freshest seafood in Orangeburg.

This was recommended by a local. Great atmosphere and the food was delicious. The prime rib was the best that I have ever had. Cooked to perfection. Had the scallops along with it and they were perfect as well. Staff was very pleasant too. A+
