“Great local Diner”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Great local diner serving great food at great prices. The staff is friendly, they try to get to know your name and once they do, they greet you by your name when you come in or when you leave. I normally go for breakfast, but they do serve delicious lunch specials with several meats and a variety of vegetables each day. I love the meatloaf. Awesome burger as well. Whether you are a local or visitor to city, check out this great little diner.

“Solid choice for meat and three”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

I am a new patron at Compton's and have found their lunch offerings to be a great value. The fried chicken and the country style steak were both nicely flavored. My favorite part is the variety of fresh tasting sides.... real mashed potatoes with gravy that tastes homemade, fried zucchini, and green beans that haven't been over-cooked to a tasteless mush. Although the title of the review says "meat and three", I have only been partaking of two sides with each meal which has been a little less expensive and still satisfying.

“Best Breakfast in Cayce-West Columbia”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Compton's has been serving the best breakfast, cooked to order in Cayce-West Columbia for decades. And the biscuits? They're the BEST in South Carolina.

“Great hole in the wall for breakfast”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Compton's Kitchen is simply a staple in West Columbia. Nothing about this place is overwhelming, but they doing everything just well enough. Service is good, location is a bit grungy yet never dirty, and food is always simple but delicious. The thick-sliced bacon and omelets are some of my favorite menu items. If you're in West Columbia, pop into the Avenues neighborhood and a pay a visit to Compton's. You'll be glad you did!
