This is one of our favorite places. The people are so friendly and the food is always great. I finally got my husband there on a Friday. He loves catfish and they have a boneless catfish special on Fridays. He ordered it with the creamed corn and mashed potatoes. It also comes with a dessert. I ordered the flounder with... More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch. The menu is extensive but we chose the chicken pot pie off of the specials menu. It came with 2 sides, for me apple salad and cole slaw, for my husband corn nuggets and mashed potatoes. We were also served a combo of corn bread and biscuits. Everything was fabulous. Generous serving... More

Good food at a decent price. Meatloaf special was sold out, so I had chicken pot pie which was quite tasty. Good sides & sweet tea. Cash only--no credit cards.

We stopped here for dinner and were impressed with the quality of food and the service also. We both had the Friday special dinner (Flounder with two sides) and really enjoyed the meal. Can't beat $7.50 for a dinner. The young lady who served us was both friendly and helpful. I would recommend this diner for value and quality.

My husband grew up here in Summerton and I've lived here 20 years. The Diner does not disappoint! Friendly waitresses and delicious food make this an easy choice. :)

Instant mashed potatoes, a real turn-off. Fried chicken was dry. Corn was cooked to mushiness, inedible. Turkey and dressing was pretty good. Cherry dump cake was average. Mac and cheese side was the best part of the meal. Prices great. Overall, a forgettable place to eat (but one of few in the immediate area).

There are not many home-style cooking diners left in this area. This is one of the better ones. It's not fancy, but it is clean and the food and service are good. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of I-95 and enjoy a relaxing meal!!

Many years ago a hurricane took us off our normal route and we found Summerton Diner. We had a great, inexpensive meal. I remember one of the sides was rutabaga which I had never had, so the waitress brought me one to try in a little cup. My most recent stop was excellent as always: Broiled flounder, hush puppies, collards,... More

Why anyone would give this diner any stars is beyond me. My partner and I, upon recommendation from an acquaintance, ate dinner here recently. I ordered the chicken special. I was severed what looked like pigeon, it was so small. My partner ordered the liver. It was thinner than shoe leather and just as tough! The sides were so sweet... More

On a recent road trip to Hilton Head from NJ, my family and I stopped for a late lunch. We loved the hush puppies, and ordered some separately to eat later. The special of the day happened was beef tips with rice, for around $7.50. My mom ordered them and said they were tender and delicious. Their baked macaroni and... More
