This has to be one of the best restaurant experiences i have ever had. Out waitress was awesome. The Manger was great once she found out we were from out of town she gave us a sample of their chicken(which is really good) and bread. They made sure the food was good and let us know about locations near us.

I visited twice for breakfast twice this month and was very satisfied with both visits. Sure the service might take a little while, that is because the place is packed. Our servers were great both times. I tried an omelet the first visit and had the chicken curry skillet on my visit last Sunday. Amazing amount of food. Great flavor,... More

Stopped in on a Saturday morning for breakfast. It was pretty crowded but we got seated right away, but thats where it started. Took about 10 minutes to get waited on and we ordered our food and drinks at that time. It took 1 hour and 5 minutes to get our food. There was a big group seated next to... More

Although Florence, SC was not a planned stop, Long Grain Cafe was a nice pit stop for breakfast on my road trip along the east coast. It offers moderately priced diner style food. It's not necessarily a place I think warrants going out of your way to dine but if you are in the area and need a good place... More

Maybe I'm used to very good Thai food where I live. This was just OK but also a nice alternative to lobster, crab, clams, etc! The coconut soup was not very good, there was bones and gristle from the chicken. The dumplings were good and the special noodle dish with vegetables and pork would have been better if the meat...

We stopped for late breakfast before boarding AMTRAK for DC. Large menu, supersize portions, quick service. The country ham and grits were excellent, biscuit was a bit under cooked and the bacon was a bit salty for my taste. Worth the stop for a hearty meal at a reasonable price.

Environment was clean and neat. Service was adequate and food was prepared in a timely manner. The egg roll was unfortunately inedible. The flavors of both our entrees were average. The prices were reasonable, but I would hesistate to have dinner here again.

I have been for only breakfast and lunch meals. Both of these were huge portions and the food is great. I would definitely try them if you have a large appetite.

I have eaten here a few times and while I have had really good food, I've also had the opposite. Still worth a try.
