“Unique and delicious food. The Best Ever.”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

In Columbia SC, BBQ restaurants abound. Only at Saluda's was I able to try something I'd never before seen on a menu, SKATE (which is like a small stingray), and it was absolutely delicious. Delicately prepared to retain tenderness, it tasted buttery and sweet. Phenomenal. I've eaten at Saluda's half a dozen times so far and I have never, ever been disappointed. They have a stellar standard menu, but please try their specials of the evening, mind-blowingly good. You can bring friends to this restaurant and be guaranteed there will be something on the menu that they love ... and Saluda's prepares it to perfection.

“Delightful ambience, food and service!”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

My husband and I decided to make Saluda's our anniversary dining spot this year, after making the choice and reservation, we happened to stumble upon a groupon for this restaurant as well, which certainly sweetened the pot a bit! It was a lovely evening, great table, our server, Chase was excellent and very attentive. We had the crabcakes as an appetizer, which are yummy and not overly breaded and the garnish and sauce was to die for! He had the filet with herbes frites (fancy name for french fries) and it was delicious! I chose the shrimp and scallops and they were excellent as well, along with the rice and broccolini that accompanied the entree. The bread was fresh and hot out of the oven. We finished the meal with a chocolate lava cake with ice cream that we shared and enjoyed it as well. We decided this would be a spot we would definitely put on the top of our special occasion places to celebrate. We usually travel out of town to celebrate at fine dining establishments, but after our wonderful experience at Saluda's we no longer have to do that!

“Spectacular!!!!”
Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

Sometimes you get a GROUPON and visit a restaurant....you say "that was nice" but you never visit the restaurant again. Saluda's had me at "Hello". First off, the staff was SUPERB!!! Everyone was nice and helpful. Our waiter was David. It's rare to get a waiter that speaks of the specials in a tone as if he thoroughly enjoyed them personally....David did.
My best friend and I went to Saluda's to celebrate her new promotion. She had the Sweet Tea Pork Chop (stellar) and I had the Coq Au Vin (like butta).
The service was amazing and the food was incredible. We decided that Saluda's would always be our celebration destination. Thank you to David for a memorable evening.
