We stayed at the Hampton Inns and Suites right off the freeway but did not want to eat at the restaurants near the hotel so we asked someone at the front desk and she suggested Chestnut Grill and gave us directions. The food was very good.

Edisto River Creamery

Reviewed By Erik G - Chattanooga, Tennessee

We were so happy to find this place! This was our lunch spot after we detoured to get away from interstate road work.

The lady at the counter was friendly and appreciative of our business.

The hamburgers and fries were hot, well-prepared and delicious!

We all got shakes for the road and there are many flavors to choose from.

We would detour to visit this place again.

Thai Lotus

Reviewed By Jean W - Tampa, Florida, United States

Based on TripAdvisor recommendations we tried this restaurant when in Orangeburg. The location and exterior are a bit off putting but the food and service were very good. We both ordered mild entrees but next time will order one step up. They were a little too mild for our taste. Will definitely visit when next in Orangeburg.

Rosalia's Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By SportBikeDoc - Simpsonville, South Carolina

Excellent Mexican food and dining experience. An amazing gem here in Orangeburg, SC. I went to check this place out based on good reviews. Not disappointed. In this bastion of fast food and chain restaurants, Rosalias is a breath of fresh air.
The restaurant is clean and nicely decorated. Subdued lighting for dinner. Mexican music on the sound system, but not annoying Mexican music. The bathroom was clean, spacious, and well decorated
I ordered guacamole dip for an appetizer. It was definitely freshly made and delicious.
For my entre, I ordered shrimp fajitas. They came out sizzling. Very generous quantity of large shrimp with onions, peppers, etc. Not greasy at all. It was served with generous retried beans, veggies, and guacamole. The tortillas were fresh and hot.
As for the service, excellent. Fast service. Friendly staff. Very attentive.
I have no idea how these people and this restaurant found themselves in Orangeburg SC, but glad they did. This is a great Mexican restaurant and I will be back. Choose this place any day over all the fast food choices that abound here. Highly recommended.
Salud y buen provecho!

Reviewed By Rella03 - West Columbia, South Carolina

Don’t eat here if you like clean. Every single thing in sight was covered with grime. Afraid to see the kitchen if public areas are this bad. Waited a long time to be seated, should have taken the warning and escaped, but family was hungry. After we got seated, they brought another family with a screaming child and sat them right next to us. Ruined our meal. Do yourself a favor and keep going. FATZ in Columbia on Broad River is much better.

Duke's Bar-B-Que

Reviewed By Tresleches - Tampa, Florida

Amazing flavor in all. It is not your typical BBQ place. Self serve small Buffett but don't let that fool you. Great selection of meats as well as side dishes. The pork was excellent and the fried chicken was juicy and full of flavor. Loved, loved, loved the hushpuppies.

The Brown Derby

Reviewed By Morgan2010 - Lebanon, New Jersey

Ribs were good, but not as good as the pork, which rates close to excellent [without the sauce - which they put on way too much, so tell them to go easy on it, or not at all. My lady mentioned a couple times that the lima beans were best she has ever had. The corn is good too, as are the yams. Its 3 miles off the highway toward Orangeburg

Avoid this Chick-fil-A at all costs. The service and food are not anywhere near chickfila standards.
