We had lunch here last week, and it was very good. I had the baked chicken. It was very well -seasoned. My friends had great looking sandwiches. But the desserts are spectacular! They bring around a sample tray to look at and then bring your choice. Very large piece. The decor is interesting-beautiful quilts. Cheraw is a charming little town.

We happened upon this place while touring Cheraw, SC. We stopped in for coffee and desert. The owner was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Our waitress, Holly was very sweet and friendly. We could have talked to her all day. So refreshing. We will definitely go back for lunch and dinner sometime. You cannot go wrong with... More

While traveling from the Triad NC to Florence, SC, I passed through the delightfully historic town of Cheraw. I found the Main Street through downtown, and found The Rivers Edge, a restaurant and bakery. I was early for lunch...about 10:30...but they were open and welcomed me. The restaurant is Amish owned. I had a delicious chicken salad sandwich, on a... More

Today, we took a 30 minute detour to this gem in downtown Cheraw (said Sher-aa) for pie. If you have read my reviews ever, this is a welcome detour time. I had the pork chop special and Anne had a smoked gouda turkey sandwich and both came out so hot and fresh that they had to prepare each order, to... More

An Amish owned and operated restaurant, so it is "Death by Pie"...its like a lot of Amish restaurants in which the food is wholesome fresh made from scratch comfort food but not unhealthy/greasy. Be prepared to be tempted by many deserts!!!! Everyone there loved it and so did wife, kid and myself too!

Very good, hearty traditional cooking. Try the deserts. Seriously, these Mennonites baked goods are amazing. Also, try the chicken salad. I think they sprinkle it with some sort of addictive chemical. If you're there for lunch on a weekday, it will be crowded. You'll get sat quickly, waited on quickly, and served quickly, but it will take a while to... More

We stopped here for lunch enroute from Greensboro to Hilton Head as it was top rated on Trip Advisor. I endorse a top rating for this restaurant. They serve great food and seem to have a flair for baking in particular. The owner is a very pleasant Mennonite lady who sees to it that you are taken care of well.... More

I was in town for a field trial at Cooper Black. A local told my friend and I about this place. We weren't disappointed! The food was excellent. Dessert is not to be missed. Cakes are very moist and my friend's pie was delicious. Everything is fresh and scratch made. We are going back again this weekend!!!
