We had a group of folks visit for lunch, we called our order in ahead as we had a group of 9 folks. The orders ranged from Salads, to Chicken, etc. It was great! The service was good, and we left very satisfied. I would go again!

had rather average experiences on both of my visits to simply southern. The food is good but pricey and I always find myself thinking "mediocre". I think it's good food but for what it is it is way overpriced. The best thing ordered between the people in the group I went with was the prime rib.

First off, I know the owner through a prior work connection. He and his lovely wife, Gail, do a very nice job hosting, at the front of the house. Wayne's son, Jeff, is an excellent chef. The food is uniquely representative of low country South Carolina cooking. It's worth breaking "the chain habit"! Give it a try, for lunch or... More

We had dinner here recently and were pleasantly surprised by the food and the service. The restaurant itself is very simple, in a small plaza off a main road. We shared a special appetizer of pimento biscuits with ham and cheese that was perfect. Entrees can be ordered in half of full portions, and luckily we ordered half portions and... More

I really enjoyed the food here. The menu reminds me of a low country type menu from shrimp and grits to sweet potato fries.

My wife and I recently dined at Simply Southern Bistro in Sumter, SC. My wife ordered the salmon with cucumber sauce and raved about how good it was and how she can't wait to go back for more. I had the shrimp and grits and it too was delicious. The wait staff too was friendly, attractive and knowledgeable about the... More

I was here with family and friends over the weekend. The staff was very kind and the establishment was clean. First off, the Half portions of food is more than enough to satisfy you. So, keep that in mind. It seems everything is fried, which is a bit of a bummer, but my Seafood Platter was good. The Friend Mac... More
