I have eaten at many S & S cafeterias over the last 40 years and still love it. They have so many things to choose from. I love most all of it but especially the trout almondine.

Many choices. Friendly Staff . Very reasonable prices. Short lines. Staff serves but you carry trays to table unless you need assistance. Two vegetables, meat, bread, drink for less than $9.00.

Our waitress took forever took serve us and we had the wrong drink order. When she finally came she had an attitude and did not apologize for taking so long (the restaurant was not full). When she came and asked if everything was ok I said no and she just walked away. Usually the staff are really nice except for... More

My sister and I went to this cafeteria for dinner because we wanted to eat a wide variety of food which you can do at a cafeteria. She was able to get fried chicken by the piece and I had the chicken n dumplings. Love comfort food at the end of a busy day. The desserts were great also !

Best desserts, good home cooking. Apple pie and peach cobbler very good. Good chicken and love the liver and onions. The takeout is quick and fresh.

Since they closed our S&S in Columbia, we were excited about finding this unit still open in Charleston. If you want a basic "home cooked" meat and veggies, you can't go wrong!

This is about the best place in Charleston to get an inexpensive meal with an entree, salad, dessert and a great selection of home cooked vegetables all for under $10. S&S Cafeterias has been in Charleston since the 1950s, first being located in downtown Charleston before branching out into West Ashley in the 1970s. The Sam Rittenberg Boulevard location is...

I took a group to eat here and the food, service and setting was very good. Our group ate a sampling of the meat entrees and side items and everyone was well pleased with the food presentation and taste. I had the baked spaghetti, congealed salad, sweet potato suffle, and broccoli cassarole. All of my selections were hot, tasty and... More

I ate here twice while on a bus tour. The first night no one at my table liked their meal. I had their baked steak and it was the worse I have ever had. It tasted like a low end frozen dinner. I ate the green beans and the custard pie which was good. Another person at my table said... More
