15 minutes for the drink order. 1 hour until food arrives. After waiting 25 more minutes for drink refills we had to track down the waiter for this tall request. 3 meals were served wrong, another came out 10 minutes later than the other 8. Some of our food was cold. Talked to the manager twice about the the service. Instead of trying to fix the problem, he felt ignoring us was the best method. My portion for 2 adults & 2 children was $80.00. How much more fun can an indivdual take over a period of 2.5 hours. This was a 75th Birthday Diner for my Mother-in-Law. WOW what a diaster. Save some time and money and go to Mc Donalds ! Atleast you know what to expect!!! Chestnut Grill 1, Hanesy -0. You win Chestnut Grill! You'll never have to worry about me getting burnt at the Chestnut Grill again! Please, If you are in the area save yourself some time and money and go any where else but here.

I have heard many good things about Chestnut so we decided to try it out. The service was awful it took atleast 5minutes to get our drink order. I was with a party of 6 and every ones steak was cold. 6 cold steaks that were atleast 15.00 a piece or more were served cold. Our server was not even concerned with the fact that all of the food she just brought out were cold. The server never came and asked how was everything....did not bring our bread out until we had our cold entrees. At the end she was more concerned about the check being paid .....rather than offering us dessert or coffee. We never saw a manager or another co worker. Where is the team work! I will not go back to chestnut grill to get bad service and cold food.

We travel extensively but live in lower S.C. Chestnut Grill is a favorite. The Prime Rib with Horseradish sauce is as good as we've had anywhere. Everything on the menu is delightful. I also especially enjoy the Spinach Quiche and salad. If you get there late or don't make reservations, prepare to wait... but it's worth it. There is often a table in the bar if you don't mind slightly closer quarters. The wait staff is very good, well trained and polite. The managers are experienced and accessable.

Apparently a local favorite. Dinners ran $15-20 per plate. Steak, ribs, & seafood favorites. The ribs had a great flavor and were as tendor as could be. It got busy at about 7PM although we dined early. Dress code seemed to run the range from khaki's and oxfords to shorts and pull overs. Service was VERY personable and VERY attentive to our every need. Appears to be recently remodeled and has good ambience in the dinging room for an intimate dinner or a gathering of family or friends. Enjoyed the service and food but value for dollar, I'll look for a new experience next time.
