Delicious and different

Stopped for lunch while running errands. I love this place. It is locally owned that serves high quality food. The menu is full of interesting combinations...nothing like boring fast food. Great place for lunch.

We really enjoyed our food there, will definitely go back. The food was delicious, service good, very casual, take out or eat in. Went there at lunch. Busy, but fast service.

I love eating here. I usually try a sandwich and/or salad--specials are always good. My hubby also enjoys their food. Never had a bad meal here. Inside seating is a little limited--we usually try to sit outside--nice little courtyard with tables/umbrellas. Def a must if you come to summerville!

Good place for casual lunch. Not a fast food dive. The food is fresh and service was good. Chef could do more business with more seating, but has been successful for several years.

I work in Summerville and must have visited the Eclectic Chef over 50 times. You cannot go wrong with so many fresh meals. The people are very nice and the food excellent. I can recommend it to anybody.

Get the chicken cordon blu panini. Or better yet, pick a bald sandwich with some sweet tea. Summerville is the sweet tea record holder.

Are there for lunch after shopping at the near by stores. Located on a cute little cobblestone street. You could either sit inside or at one of the tables on the street. I had a Strawberry/feta Salad most definitely.

Once you find this place, just off an alleyway in downtown Summerville, you won't forget where it is! Fabulous food, great selection and plenty of outdoor seating for the fabulous spring time weather. I had the homemade chicken salad on a spinach salad and it was excellent. Do not leave without taking a dessert home. The coconut cake was fabulous... More
