Oh my, if you do nothing else go here to eat the candied bacon waffles. It comes with chicken tenders that are melt in your mouth and is what I get most visits here. Their biscuits are great and the orange juice is fresh squeezed! Yum!

Our friend drove us up here from Savannah. He said that the place would be special. He was right. The outside of the building is meager. The inside is a store and cafe. Our service and meals were exemplary. We had a passing storm while inside. The rain on their tin roof only added to our dining experience.

I'm a local, and this is the best homecookn' you will find. Amazing "meat and three". Family owned, have their own farm and market. Simply excellent. Never disappoints!

Cahill's has good food but service is questionable. I'm not talking about the waitress service but the owners absolute refusal to allow any substitutions. My wife and I recently ate breakfast there and my wife requested to substitute toast for a biscuit and the owner refused. This was not a isolated instance. I once asked to have a coke rather...

The place is definitely Southern country ambience with comfort food! Our chicken entries were good not great...collard greens, grits, sweet potatoes w/pecans, etc. the bonus was to buy fresh produce and other canned or jar foods in the store area.

Stop with the family for their home made ice cream. A good variety of tasty fresh ice cream. Lots of farm produce on sale in an old style store. Also have a dining area for lunches. Nice out door seating and farm grounds to walk.

No fancy dining here but wholesome, delicious seasonal farm-to-table vegetables & chicken as well as local seafood. Beef & pork are also good choices. Southerners love their fresh vegetables and Cahill's offers plenty to choose from: Field peas, butterbeans, okra & tomatoes, sweet potato souffle, fried okra, fried green tomatoes, macaroni & cheese,...Meat choices are farm-fresh chicken, chicken livers, gizzards,...

A local favorite. Parking Lot has 20 Sc cars, one from GA and a California transplant! Famous for their chicken. Dark or light meat. Includes 3 sides. This is country cooking! Willie and Hank on the speakers. Had to summer beans, collards and cuke salad= all good! 99% of food is grown or raised nearby. You will love Cahill's!
