Loved it

Great food and pleasant service, we've been here several times and will keep coming back. They don't have an extensive menu but we've enjoyed everything we've tried. Unfortunately, I'm always too full to try dessert!

First time was OK but not the second time. The portions were small and the food was rather bland. For the price, we expected more.

Pleasantly surprised when I pulled up for dinner. Arrived @ 7 pm and parking lot fairly empty. Nice clean decor, friendly helpful wait staff. Food was delicious with substantial portions. Especially considering the price. Had fried oysters for appetizer that were cooked perfectly. Throughly enjoyed the special bone-in pork chop and sweet potato cheesecake. Highly recommend!

Every single time we've been (and that is too many to count), we've walked away with a smile. The food is always delicious with excellent variety in lunch specials. Because Sumter is drive for us, we've always eaten there at lunch; so I cannot comment on the dinner offerings. However, even lunch is special...my last one being fried green tomatoes... More

The Osso Bucco is our favorite! There are a lot of great things on the menu. Their specials are usually great. The service is great too.

I had forgotten that everything in the south is larger but especially portion sizes. This isn't the case at Simply Southern Bistro (which is a GOOD THING!) About 15 minutes from Shaw AFB this little gem served up a tasty BBQ pork sandwich special for lunch with one side. My friend and I both had this with sweet potato fries... More

To say this is my favorite restaurant in nearby Sumter is an understatement. Everything I and my family members have had has been excellent. My gluten free issues are no problem here and the waiters are very eager to help with options. Portions are good but not excessive, prices are very reasonable and although none of us has had a...
