Very good food at fair prices. While staying in Orangeburg during hurricane Matthew we dined twice at the Chestnut Grill. Was slow to get seated but after that the service was excellent. Best place in town for dinner.

Nice atmosphere and food was fine, but everything about this visit was slow. Slow to be seated, very slow to even be acknowledged once we were at the table. Slow to take order, get bread, get food,slow to process the payments. We were so tired of being there by the time it was over.

Beautifully redecorated, charming place for lunch or dinner, popular bar, good wait staff, but above all the food! Moderately priced, southern food, steaks and seafood. Look for daily specials by owner/chefs. Great clam chowder, best liver and onions anywhere, terrific seafood, great steaks and reasonably priced. Just off Hwy 601 heading into town, a five to ten minute drive but... More

Mine came with French onion soup. It wasn't good. Over salted, no cheese and three croutons on top. Possibly canned? The platter came with two scallops, three shrimp, a crab cake, and... More

This was our first dinner of our annual road Trip in search of cooler weather. I had read the reviews on Trip Advisor and had to try this place. Our server gave us great recommendations and we were so glad we listened. I had the Rib Eye (cooked to perfection) and my wife had the chicken salad with grand berries... More

I went here for lunch today around 1:30 so the lunch rush should have been over. On recommendation of the waitress, I ordered the Orangeburg burger lunch special as she said the stir fry special has been a bit slow to come out. It took a long time for my burger to come out, so I can only imagine if... More
