Excellent Lunch in Downtown Summerville

After a morning of shopping at the fresh fruit open air market in downtown Summerville, SC we headed over to the Eclectic Chef. We had a great lunch. The food was fresh and tasted great. Outside the restaurant on a cobblestoned road was several tables. A live band played at the end of the street. It is just a cute... More

I love tomato pie and always order it when it is on the menu. I was excited to see a very tall pie in the case when we walked in. As we perused the enticing menu two people ordered large pieces out of my pie - the only one. I rushed to get my piece and was very glad to... More

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.
