If you are every in Lexington or West Columbia and need some good breakfast to start your day, Compton's is your place! Amazing taste, all fresh and at a price that beats all others. Very friendly staff, like family!

Compton's is a local place, not near the interstates and is frequented by many of the same customers on a regular basis. My wife and I go there occasionally for breakfast mainly. The staff genuinely seems to like working there and is friendly and attentive. The place itself is clean but not fancy. Can be too cold for us in... More

I visit my Grandmother in Columbia SC and we've always gone to the same restaurant (not to be mentioned). So I googled to find a new place that served a good southern breakfast and Comptons delivered! They had the Liver Pudding and Onion Sausage my Grandmother loves. Steaks were cooked well, pancakes were yummy and staff was very friendly. It's... More

The breakfast deals here can't be beat. You get plenty of food for a reasonable price. Their onion sausages are really tasty. Try the "Dixie Crat".

Great local diner serving great food at great prices. The staff is friendly, they try to get to know your name and once they do, they greet you by your name when you come in or when you leave. I normally go for breakfast, but they do serve delicious lunch specials with several meats and a variety of vegetables each... More

I am a new patron at Compton's and have found their lunch offerings to be a great value. The fried chicken and the country style steak were both nicely flavored. My favorite part is the variety of fresh tasting sides.... real mashed potatoes with gravy that tastes homemade, fried zucchini, and green beans that haven't been over-cooked to a tasteless... More

Compton's has been serving the best breakfast, cooked to order in Cayce-West Columbia for decades. And the biscuits? They're the BEST in South Carolina.

Compton's Kitchen is simply a staple in West Columbia. Nothing about this place is overwhelming, but they doing everything just well enough. Service is good, location is a bit grungy yet never dirty, and food is always simple but delicious. The thick-sliced bacon and omelets are some of my favorite menu items. If you're in West Columbia, pop into the... More
