This is a small restaurant nestled in a cove near a bridge on Lake Wateree. We docked our boat and walked up the dock and climbed the stairs onto the open air porch. Rustic pine rocking chairs greet you on the porch. Rustic ceiling fans and other decor are very charming. A hostess met us at the door and seated... More

WARNING. I'm a local, and with a limited number of good restaurants in our area, I tend to go back often to the few good ones. And boy, is this a surprise! Shawn, the owner, announced on Facebook that he was doing a "Baked Stuffed 1 1/3 lb. lobster special this week end. In South Carolina? Lobster? Backed Stuff Lobster?... More

First time on Lake Wateree and here at The Retreat. Was just what we wanted and needed! Arrived by boat for an early dinner to beat the sun and heat. Zero wait at 4:30 on a Saturday. Two kids in tow and even with the lack of a kids menu we made do with apps - boneless chicken wings and... More

Food and service was okay. Although, the owner was very rude and inconsiderate to our needs. Planning on not coming back, and to add on to the displeasing visit the Mens restroom was in need of service BADLY.

I visited the restaurant while visiting a friend in Ridgeway, SC. My friend highly recommended we go to brunch before I left the area. The brunch was so yummy - huge Belgian waffles, fluffy scrambled eggs, crisp bacon and flakey biscuits. The view of the lake is gorgeous, staff are so friendly and helpful, and the food I highly recommend.... More

Great family owned restaurant tucked away at Colonel Creek Landing on rural Lake Wateree. Lovely rustic charm with a terrific view of the Lake. The best part - the food is awesome and the service is really good. It can get swamped on Friday and Saturday nights in season, so you may have to wait for a table, but it's... More

A log cabin styled restaurant tucked into a cove on Lake Wateree. It actually reminds me more of a place one would find in the Rockies, but it's here, for our benefit, in Kershaw county, SC. You'll feel at home here, even if all you want is a beer. The owners are great. They know how to make you feel... More

The food is great and you get big portions. I can make two meals off of one entrée. The best part is the incredible view of the lake! Who could as for more?

Sunday brunch of eggs benedict, one with salmon, one with Canadian bacon was superb. Waffles were outstanding and french toast dipped and coated beyond compare!

Great tasting food. A little pricey, but my burger was so BIG that I really had to use two hands to eat. The tomato was just as big as the burger! Yum. I heard that this restaurant is open only a few days a week, so check the web page for operating hours before you go.
