Great lunch

Just had lunch at the eclectic chef in Summerville. Great menu so was hard to choose. My friend and I each had a cup of homemade soup; corn, chicken and tortilla and red pepper w/Gouda. Delicious! Then we split grilled turkey and bacon and coconut cake. Yum! Very fresh and hit the spot. Service... read more

We shared a Cuban sandwich/cup of soup combo with an extra CUP of Tomato Basil soup and two small cups of java. Evert hinges was good but it came to the better part of a $20 bill. Bottom line: Good food but overpriced!

I found this restaurant via a $5 gift card I received via restaurant.com. Went on a Tuesday for lunch and had my small dog BayLee with me. I walked in around 11:45 and they were slow. As soon as I placed my order, people started rolling in so the busy lunch crowd arrives around noon FYI. I enjoyed a nice... More

Eclectic Chef was a pleasant surprise. It's located on a small, pedestrians only side street in downtown Summerville. The food appears to be locally grown and is very well prepared. It's really a hole in the wall, but one of the good ones.

I had a chicken, portobello, and brie wrap that was packed with fresh ingredients and loaded with flavor. I had the side salad that was very crispy and also full of flavor. The desserts looked outstanding but the wrap and salad were all I could eat. My wife really enjoyed one of the specials.

Eclectic Chef serves up unusual sandwiches and salads. Unusual in that the ingredients are fresh and creative and very tasty. We tried the turkey,Brie,bacon and Brie sandwich on crisp hot bread, and the chicken salad on a bed of greens. Will visit again for sure.
