This place is always awesome!! It is in a perfect place for a little downtown shopping with great shops all around it and the food is always terrific. They do have to prepare it fresh, so it isn't fast food, but when you get it, just YUM! If you haven't tried this place, GO!

Stopped in for lunch here with my parents. I just moved to the area and have been trying out different places to eat in Summerville. Most places we've been to have been just wonderful, but E Chef was SO good, I had to write a review. The food was exceptional - their pick two combo was a wonderful choice. Anyone... More

Eclectic food which is fresh and their service is great. Off of the belated path, but worth looking for.

Much smaller space than I imagined. You have to order at the counter and then they bring your food out to you. I had a brisket quesadilla and my husband had a reuben sandwich. I had a side of pasta. Quesadilla was really good but very light on cheese. Pasta would have been good but swimming in a very vinegary... More

Had the Reuben with turkey with a side of pasta salad, as recommended by the waitress. Fast service, so fresh, nice people and very reasonable prices. You can sit inside or outside on Short Central at their umbrella tables. Music outside on Saturdays too! Nice beverage choices, including flavored teas, sweet or unsweetened and fruit infused water. The sandwich was... More

The food here is always delicious and freshly prepared. My favorite is the chicken goat cheese Portobello wrap. It is fabulous! My sons love their tacos and french dip sandwiches. Always great, every time!

Love eating here when in town. But this is a review for a special dinner. Our son recently got married and we had the rehearsal dinner at the Eclectic Chef. There are not enough words or ways to describe how wonderful everything was. Setting my wife's mind at ease about fitting everyone in, working with little decorations we brought in,... More

They have a great variety of option on your ordinary breakfast food from granny's grilled cheese to there grilled cheese with bacon and... More
