Excellent food and service

Chestnut Grill is a few miles off the interstate but definitely worth the few extra minutes. We ate dinner while traveling by Orangeburg on our way home from Florida. We picked it out from the AAA ap. Be prepared to wait to be seated as this is obviously a very popular place. My wife and I had... read more

We were visiting the area on business and an associate highly recommended this restaurant. We arrived prior to the normal dinner rush to find a couple of groups waiting. So we waited for our turn. Both groups got seated and when the hostess returned our presence wasn’t even acknowledged. We asked if we could get a seat and were told... More

On our trip south for Thanksgiving we stayed in Orangeburg, SC. We read the reviews for the Chestnut Grill and decided to try it for dinner. We were seated at a table in the bar area within 5 minutes. I ordered the martini special which was a pomegranate. It was okay but by martini standards it was rather small. The... More

I have lived in Orangeburg all my life & had only been to this place twice up until recently. Now, I'm hooked!!! They have the best chicken salad (it has pecans in it!!) & I love their homemade ranch! I could literally eat it on anything! I usually get liver & onions with a salad & baked potato when I... More

I was looking for a good sit down place to eat while on business in Orangeburg and let's be honest...there aren't many. One of my employees recommended Chestnut Grill and I'm so glad he did. When I arrived I noticed that the parking lot was packed and it was a Monday night so that's a great sign. I was greeted... More

Nice restaurant if you have a large family and all are hungry. Sumptuous servings of really "rich" food that si reasonably priced. Nice ambiance, friendly staff. Busy place. Great for occasional heavy eating/ dining. They make a ginormous onion "flower" ring and serve it with horseradish sauce ( or tomato sauce if you choose). One of these can serve the... More

Excellent food is an understatement. Everything from the salmon, to the steak is cooked to perfection. Their chicken salad is BY FAR the best chicken salad I've ever had. I get a container out of the deli fridge every week. Friendly staff and prompt service.
