“WONDERFUL!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

While visiting the area for a few days, we celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary by dining at Low Country for the first time. I cannot say enough about the food and service. I got the seared salmon, which was cooked to perfection. The sides were great and more than plentiful. My husband got the fried flounder and shrimp. He said the best he's had since living at the coast. The batter was very light and portions quite big. We were so impressed, we returned for our last night in the area. Everything was just as great as the first time.

“Slow service and average food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

We stopped there on oiur recent trip and were less than impressed. Service was slow and less than friendly - probably since we were not one of the locals. My wife passed the kitchen on the way to the bathroom and saw the reason for the slow food production. There were three cooks working off one or two small tables.

Food was ok, not great. Veggies were not fresh but came straight from the can - ugh! Not a lot of choices in Marion but i'd recommend going elsewhere.

“Glad we stopped in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

This restaurant/bar was one of the best values of our vacation. The quality of the food is far beyond the price. The staff and owners are friendly as well as all the patrons we encountered at the bar. If/when we're ever anywhere near Marion, NC, we'll come back to Low Country Dining.

“What a plesant and happy find. Try it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant has the old 1940's type of decor. Top that with melt in your mouth steak good fries and sides that are wonderful and you have to ask why did I not find this before. Try the tomatoes and blue cheese it's outta sight. Great meal all the way around I will be back when I pass through.
