Good food and friendly service!

I have just recently discovered this little gem of a restaurant in West Columbia and have enjoyed having lunch there. The food is good and the servers are friendly. It has a down home atmosphere and I will be returning soon to enjoy their food and hospitality.

Compton kitchen is one of the best places to eat in lexington sc. The wait staff is always on top of things. The amount of food you get for the price is outstanding. We eat here at least once a week.

This is one of the best local restaurants in town. Great food, especially the fried zucchini, served with a smile. Always happy to support small businesses.

The Hungry Man breakfast is excellent for someone who is hungry for breakfast. Lots of eggs, sausage, bacon, hash browns, grits, and pancakes. And as a special added touch, they added cheese to my grits, and substituted French toast for the pancakes. A lot of food, but it was so good that I ate every bite. Very friendly service. And...

Southern hospitality at its best. The staff at Compton's Kitchen make you feel like one of the family even on your first visit. The food is good country cooking at very reasonable prices. It's definitely worth your while to try this spot!
