We actually thought the food was good and loved the astmospere. There seemed to be some tensions for a working environment but we still would visit... Hopefully it opens the doors again as it has huge potential.

This restaurant just needs to shut the door. Most of the stuff looks wasted and those who may be good people are handicapped by sorry food. Stay away from this place. Not worth a visit.

This was a booming business not too long ago but... between the legal/financial issues of the original owner of the Old Armory and the new owner not having enough class to hold the door open for a female patron and berating his staff in front of bar patrons it hasn't taken me many bad experiences to decide that I didn't...

The Old Armory Steakhouse is in downtown Camden, SC. Our server was extremely nice and efficient. We had gulf fried shrimp and ribs. The ribs were tasty without being buried in sauce as you find in some places. The fried shrimp was lightly battered and very good as well. The salads were good as well with fresh greens. Don't miss... More

I had heard from a visitor to Camden that the Shrimp and Grits dinner was the best ever. Always skeptical at superlatives I decided to try the Old Armory again (last trip was too ordinary to be so expensive. You can imagine my disappointment to find that the dinner I had come to sample was not on the menu. But... More

My husband and I went for dinner admittedly at an off hour (3:30pm) and we both ordered a rib-eye steak that came with a salad and two side dishes. We both commented that the salads tasted like they were left over from lunch. The croutons in the salads were almost inedible because they were so stale. We split a bowl... More

No longer open. I don't know if it will open again. I ate here in 2014 and it was a great restaurant at the time. I don't know why it is closed now.

Local restaurant closed by Feds, Taxes is the rumor. Old local's restaurant. Always good staff that partially make up for the uninteresting food. Located off the main drag, on Rutledge St. Other restaurants near-by you might want to try them first!
