Staff is very friendly and food is amazing! Asked the bartender for recommendations on a new beer was NOT disappointed with the results which is rare. I will definitely go back and they are a must try for any visitor in the area and don't forget to try the alligator cheesecake!

We will go back to see him and so glad the food was fantastic too. We started with bacon wrapped scallops-yum with our beer. The beer menu was handed to us on... More

This is my wife's favorite Sumter restaurant, and one of my favorites. Probably my only complaint is that they have no fried potatoes, just raw fries, which I do not like. Having said that, the atmosphere is fun, the appetizers are great and the service is outstanding.

My father-in-law was in town and we wanted to treat him to lunch. We decided on the PO House since we had not tried it yet, but had heard good things about the restaurant. We came for lunch and it was not busy at all so we were seated right away. Our waitress was friendly and the menu was varied.... More

I have eaten here several times. I usually eat here when I am in this area. I had fried oysters and shrimp, steamed shrimp, red potatoes, corn and iced tea. All were delicious. Had a problem when food first arrived but the owner quickly addressed it. A good choice.

I went with a group of 12 on a Wednesday evening. Palmetto Oyster House gladly took the reservation. Wait staff extremely professional - matter of fact it would be hard to name an improvement. It was perfect. Everyone in my group ordered a different type of food. It all looked good (matter of fact it all looked real good!). It... More
