Visited the restaurant twice this summer and was impressed by the quality of the food, the friendly and helpful waitresses and the overall ambiance of the establishment. And now they have patio seating in their new location just down the street from the original site.

The food here is great and the service is okay. We've enjoyed lunch and dinner here on different occasions. Love the fried green tomato BLT sandwich!! But the sweet potato cornbread with the honey ginger butter is FANTASTIC!! Probably could eat two pans by myself!

Sweet Potatoes has a great bar, pouring nice drinks. The food is decent but I have never had good luck with the service.

Very good southern soul food. Delicious hush puppies, collard greens, fried chicken and waffles, sautéed spinach and cornbread. The service was pretty good, we were a party of 5, they pushed two tables together and were very accommodating.

I have been hearing about Sweet Potatoes for years. I've been there 3 times. First time, awful. Gave it a second chance, just as bad. Third time, a charm - YET AGAIN, AWFUL. That is really it. Expensive, TERRIBLE food, worst service I've EVER experienced....More

We stopped here for dinner on our way thru to Myrtle Beach and it did not disappoint. We had a party of 6 so we called ahead and the exceptional service started right from the first phone call. The staff was very attentive and were...More

If they have one I didn't see nor asked for it. I feel they would accommodate you the best they could. They were very attentive to us and other patrons in restaurant.
