We decided to try the local food scene in Sumter and we're not disappointed. The duck sandwich and crab cakes are phenomenal and ordering online makes this an easy transaction, easier and faster and better than the local "fast" food restaurants. The food here is...easily among the best I've ever had. I know that if I stop through Sumter again, I'm making it a point to eat at simply southern bistro.More
There is no better restaurant in Sumter. The food is wonderful and the chefs are willing to work around food Intolerances.
The environment is peaceful, warm and inviting.
The staff is accommodating, friendly and professional.
This find is in a small strip mall, but it is worth the time to find. I ask you, where else are you going to find a duck sandwich that will leave you in 7th heaven? Or how about a turkey sandwich which is really...Thanksgiving on a roll? Or a beautiful piece of salmon, with a cucumber/dill sauce that makes you wish you had ordered the larger portion? Well, you will find it here and a lot more. I very reasonable wine list, and service that is second to none. And I know it will be great every time I go since the son, a classically trained chef runs the kitchen and Mom and Dad run the frontend. If you are in Sumter and looking for a great lunch or dinner, Simply Southern Bistro blows all of those chain restaurants out of the water for both taste and price!More
Hadn't been here in a few years, and my friend and I were trying to go some place different, so we thought of the Southern Bistro. Forgot how Much I had enjoyed it, particularly the duck. Always a bit out of the ordinary, but always...good. Will return sooner rather than later.More
The restaurant offers several specials for lunch and dinner. I ate there four or five times during my time in Sumter. There is usually a seafood dish that was excellent. Customer service is excellent, prices can be a little higher than normal for lunch, but...very reasonable for dinner. I didn’t eat any of the deserts but that looked fantastic. I highly recommend this restaurant.More
Been here a few times. The food is always good. Had the bacon blue burger and it’s scrumptious. Wife had the duck. Mother in law had the low country shrimp and grits.
Duck was tender and flavorful
Shrimp and grits are pretty good
