Went in a couple days ago with my girlfriend. We ordered breakfast. She had a skillet and I had the country fried steak. Both meals were very good. I recommend the raisin bread! They make it in the restaurant and it is awesome.

Saturday morning breakfast with friends was fun and delicious at Bear E Patch. All our meals were large portions and delicious. I had the "Farmer's Skillet." It was yummy and plenty for two people.

As a restaurant owner service is very important to us. Staff is attentive, courteous. Food prepared on site on an open kitchen set up. Basted eggs to perfection. Bacon club was well prepared. Would recommend for a late breakfast or early lunch.

So much food, I had to take some home. I had Sues special: 2 eggs, potatoes, choice of meat and a pancake (blueberry with a blueberry syrup/jam concoction on top). They serve breakfast all day. And even have cakes, pies, ice cream, bread, cookies for sale. I will be back before I leave to Atlanta.

This restaurant has the best breakfast in the Charleston area. Rivals all the great ones on the peninsula. Incredible crab omelette, great fish and cheese grits. Friendly service. For true southern food and hospitality, this is the real deal.

The menu offers a large variety of meals with something for everyone to enjoy. They also have daily specials. The portions are large and the food was... More
