Stopped there last Friday. I had the country fried steak. My wife had chicken salad on croissant. Everything is homemade, tasty, and reasonably priced. Menu is Southern/American. We didn't have the salad bar so can't opine on that. The space was a furniture store when I was growing up there and they haven't done much to change that other than put the tables out so ambiance isn't great but very kid friendly...lots of room to spread out. We didn't have dessert but their cakes seem to be a specialty and looked good. Service was very friendly and quick.

We first discovered this little gem of a restaurant about eighteen months ago and eat there at least every two weeks. It is over an hour's drive from our home and we have taken friends and family with us each time and they love this place as much as we do. Located on a side street in Cheraw, SC, "the prettiest little town in Dixie," Rivers Edge is owned and operated by a Mennonite family, and the food is always fresh and delicious. All the breads are homemade - including the buttery croissants, which are incredible when stuffed with the cranberry-pecan chicken salad. Everything is homemade, actually, and it is hard to choose what to try, although the fork-tender pork chops, corn casserole and mashed potatoes and gravy tends to be the meal of choice most of the time for our family. The salad bar is incredibly fresh, and the potato salad, made with red potatoes and sour cream is the best ever. Friday night is steak night, and the ribeyes are grilled to tender perfection.
The dessert tray, loaded with at least a dozen varieties of cakes and pies, is brought around by friendly servers just before you push yourself away from the table, thinking you cannot possibly eat another bite. Whole cakes, pies, breads and casseroles are for sale as well. The service and atmosphere is just wonderful - the friendliest folks you would ever want to meet, always kind, always smiling. After dining at Rivers Edge, you will leave with a smile on your face as well! NOTE: Before making the drive, be aware this establishment is only open for lunch five days a week, and on Thursday and Friday nights.

I have eaten here a few times on my way to GA. The food is pretty good. It is a small town place with home style food. Different specials every day. The plates are about $7 each. They have some good and pretty desserts but a bit pricey. ( 3 of us -3 plate lunches, 1 drink , 3 pieces of cake-$43).We had porkchops and 2 veggies. It was good but not incredible. The decor is simple-homey. I noticed that a lot of locals eat there. If you wand a good, healthy meal -try it out. Keep in mind that the desserts are good but not cheap.
