“Great place to eat”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Constantly good. Departure from same old fried food. Grilled grouper with sun dried tomatoes and olives was tasty and healthy. Beautiful interior and the best servers ever.

“Elegant but comfortable atmosphere”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I loved the ambiance of the place.... from the old brick walls and wooden floors to the white tablecloths and picture windows. The A-frame sidewalk board lured us in with the specials of the day: Charleston Crab soup and Prime Rib sandwich with homemade potato chips. Everything was delicious, service was good and the prices fair. I would definitely go back when in Georgetown.

“Elegant dining fine cuisine in Historic Georgetown”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

We met friends from Charleston here for dinner. An historic building sets the stage for elegant dining and outstanding cuisine. The old bank vault has been reincarnated as a lavishly stocked wine cellar. There are crisp white linens & prompt knowledgeable servers all in support of an urbane menu.

The owners & Chef support local vendors/farmers and create the menu based upon the highest quality ingredients available. Local oysters wrapped in bacon--ohhhhh yummmm-- steak--that I cut with my fork--accompanied by a unique pepper sauce--fish grilled to perfection & delicious desserts prepared on site. Desserts are so often an afterthought in many restaurants--not so here. Each offering of every course reflects the care and talent of the Chef.

We just wanted to thank the owners for a lovely evening.

“One of the best meals we have had in years of travel.”
Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

We had been sailing for several days and pulled into Georgetown, SC for a few days. We needed a good meal and that is what we received. Not only was the manager excellent, but our server was as good as they come. We asked to sit in an unmade table in the bar window and they did not skip a beat - made the table up no problem and in no time we were eating. The food was superb and the ambiance was great as well. It was a wonderful night that we will always remember and we will definitely come back here when we are in town.

Thank you Rice Paddy!!!

“Always so delicious!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

Everything at The Rice Paddy is so yummy but there isn't a cheeseburger in the whole world better than theirs! It is the J Burger! Topped with jalapeño pimento cheese, lettuce and tomato and made from ground fillet it melts in your mouth! Just had one today and can't wait for my next one! If you can eat another bite the Brownie dessert if fabulous also!
