On our annual trip to Aiken, SC each year we go out of our way to stop at Juniper for lunch. The food is consistently tasty with well made special sandwich combinations all the time. On this Monday, the place was filled for lunch with a line of customers waiting to order. Orders are placed at the front counter and... More

Great find and great prices for lunch. The Cuban sandwich and chicken and dumplings were awesome. This lunch didn't empty the wallet as it was well priced. The staff was welcoming and helpful during our visit.

For a reasonable price, this is a surprisingly good buffet. My favorite things are the salads, things like mushrooms and tomatoes in a vinaigrette, an outstanding cous cous salad and others that change each week. Yes, there is plain lettuce and if the blue cheese dressing isn't on the table...ask for it. There is some kind of southern dish like... More

Had lunch with friend. This was second visit and it was consistent with first visit. The corn chowder is the best. Everything was delicious and service was prompt and friendly.

We have lived in Aiken for years and have been hearing of Juniper for a long time. We finally took the pretty country drive to Ridge Spring to give it a try. What fun! Excellent fresh food, family friendly, great service. Absolutely delicious. We will be returning!

Got the herb crusted chicken with tomato sauced rice and squash. All I could do not to re-order a second plate. Very tasty

For a small town this restaurant will surprise you! This place reminds me of a fancy restaurant that you find on the coast. Sure you will pay a little more for the food but here you pay for QUALITY. If you want something cheap...go somewhere else. I suggest go on Sundays for the buffet. The bacon is AMAZING! The chef... More

Finding Juniper is only the beginning of the adventure. You are not likely to 'happen by.' It is well off the beaten path, in what looks like an old General Store from Mayberry. The tables and chairs don't match, but don't let that stop you. At night, it is white table cloth, although with paper napkins(!) The wine list shows... More
