Enjoyed a great dinner here and had a great steak. The Filet was perfectly cooked and the crab pasta dish my wife had was also very tasty. We enjoy the atmosphere and have always had great service.

We got two to-go boxes (crab cakes and seafood pasta) while we were traveling through. I wish we could have sat down and eaten here. Delightful restaurant in the old downtown of Camden, SC.
