Juniper is like three different restaurants in one, depending on the day/time you visit. Lunch time it's delicious, fresh sandwiches, soups, and salads with a daily special (like shrimp and grits, herb chicken, or meatloaf). The corn chowder is on the menu daily and worth a trip on its own. Lunch prices are very reasonable. The atmosphere is rustic and... More

Went with friends on a busy Friday night. Had reservations so got seated right away. The staff was excellent - engaging and their recommendations were spot on. The food was fresh and nicely presented. Everyone had something a little different, and each entree was delicious! The waiter saw my husband sneak the fresh okra from my plate, and brought me...

It's off the beaten path, on SC Hwy 23 in the charming, and I do mean charming, little town of Ridge Spring, SC, but well worth the drive. The meat and three special of the day varies, but they also feature homemade salads, sandwiches, soups, and desserts. Being we were first timers, they brought a little sampling of their side...

Please take a detour to this wonderful family owned business in a beautiful little town. The inside of the restaurant is decorated with paintings from local artists and 70's themed table and chairs and you get your sweet tea or lemonade in a mason jar (which to me makes the tea taste even better and colder) they also serve a...

We have been to Juniper several times and each time has been on a Sunday around lunch time. There is always a nice selection of food, and the price is reasonable. I also love the old fashioned décor. The only bad experience we have had there was last July. The place was full of flies! It was a very hot... More

They have the best corn chowder I have ever eaten. We come here on a regular basis just for the chowder. Have eaten dinner here before too and it was just as amazing as lunch and the transformation of the entire restaurant is something to see for sure!!

Enjoyed a leisurely lunch with an old friend at Juniper Restaurant, Ridge Spring, SC. The restaurant is in a rural town in SC. Had heard it was the place to go from others in Aiken, SC and finally took their advice. Enjoyed a delicious Ruben and one of their signature side dishes, black-eyed pea salad. My friend had a grilled... More

Went there for lunch and had some great food....and better service. First let me say that the French dip.....which was recommended I would avoid. It was an OK sandwich....bread a bit too crunchy....not enough meat and the a jus was way typy to salty. Have the mushroom sandwich with turkey....outstanding. The corn chowder is amazing and the pimento mac and... More

We took a drive for the peach blossoms, and decided to try Junipers as friends had mentioned it to us. We walked back into time when we entered, not knowing what to expect. We ordered at the counter sandwiches and sat down at tables from the 60's. The sandwiches were good, nothing exceptional. The young man who brought our food... More
