This is a small, unassuming restaurant. We stopped because it looked like the locals were there. We were not disappointed. Wait staff was great. We enjoyed a good ole country breakfast.

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.
