Wades has been a Spartanburg mainstay for decades because of great food and fantastic service. Meals are homestyle fresh and filling, desserts are just like mom and grandma made, and you will want to come back... again and again!

My wife and I eat at Wade's Family Restaurant about every time we are in Spartanburg which is very often. Every item we have ever ordered is cooked to perfection. The grilled chicken is the best. We also love their soup and grilled cheese. There is a number of vegetables available. You must try the sweet potato.

Wades is a one-of-a-kind place; you will not forget your visit to Wades. It is quite busy, almost to the point of being chaotic, but that is part of the charm. Food is OK, as was the service and would be "average/good" at other places. But there is something special about the place -- it's fun.

This restaurant was a bustling place when we got there. We were seated promptly though and our server came quickly to get our drink orders. I would describe the food as more home cooking. For example, they had a chicken entrée cooked in cream of chicken soup(per the menu). Most of the entrees with just a couple of exceptions were... More

Wades is nothing short of amazing considering the massive amount of people that filter through in a day. The food is good, service is swift. If you stop by only to see a line wrapped around the outside of the building, don't fret.. It goes remarkably quick. The vegetables/sides are the main draw for me, the entrees can be a... More

It's the southern cooking mother lode. All delicious - my favorites are Mac and cheese, green beans, the dressing and gravy is some of the best around. The yeast rolls are served fresh and warm - a necessity for your visit.

We've been living in SC for 7 months and have been scoping out the area restaurants. Wades was rated #2 in Spartanburg, so we decided to give it a go. We arrived at 4:30 on a Saturday and were seated behind the server's station. The service was ok. I asked our server which of the daily specials she recommended, and... More

Hi! I'm genuinely sorry you did not enjoy your meal at our restaurant. We do understand that Southern Style cooking is not for everyone. I did want to touch on a few points from your review. I won't deny that many of a few of our vegetables come in cans, however we season them with our own family recipes that... More
