Food was very good. I had fajitas. Fish tacos good. If you're seated upstairs, it's rather hard to navigate if you have any leg issues at all.

There were 3 of us last night, outside, upstairs - heaters on to take the chill off. Live music that was wonderful. Great atmosphere. Chris, our waiter, was awesome. Food was good. Great wine. Can't wait to go back. Headed to comedy club afterwards.

Stopped here tonight because our seafood place was closed. Sat upstairs and although our serve took a while to warm up she did fine. The fried oysters and the grouper was perfect. This is a good stop. Not Mexican.. southwestern. You can only eat so...More

You will read some reviews that make no sense, this place is Southwestern not Mexican. The painted desert soup is dead on Southwestern. Then the meats and other dishes are cooked extremely well. I find the service can vary here from one to the next...More

We bring the very best of Southwestern culture and cuisine home to the Lowcountry. Our menu has been an Islanders" preferred dining spot for over 20 years and with dishes like our famous grouper, to our bone-in cowboy cut black angus ribeye, our outrageous chimichanga to even lobster fajitas, we're sure to have a new favorite waiting for you. From the sounds of the live Ranchero guitar player to the smells rising from our mesquite grill, Santa Fe Cafe is a much welcomed reprieve for the senses. Even when you're outside underneath the stars on our Rooftop Cantina, we've got you covered.
