Found this to be a very pleasant lunch. Food was better then most. The New England clam chowder is excellent. If you do go ask for Austin to be your server. Very nice and very efficient server.

We frequent this place often, and I may be a little biased, but the food is always great! We also always seem to have excellent service. I am very glad that a sleepy little town like Orangeburg has such a gem.

We were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. The food was great and was reasonably priced. You can't go wrong with this joint. I wished I lived closer to it. Boom!

The chatter in the foyer and the many patrons waving at friends seated at other tables were tip-offs that this is a local haunt, and the 20-minute wait suggested it is also very popular. Easy to see why --- the service is friendly, the portions...More
