Great food, great service, nice wine list. Can't say a bad thing about this restaurant except that some will find it pricey for the small-town location. Nice place for a special occasion and the setting (in an older structure) has a lot of character.

Not worth it! Food is overpriced and you can find better for less in Sumter. Save your money and go to one other places in Sumter.

Nice little place in Sumter with a small but interesting menu. We've only done lunch but will try supper soon.

Hamptons is a starred restaurant experience, which is kind of a surprise in a town the size of Sumter. Attractive modern atmosphere, superb service, fine food, and the check won't knock you over at the end of your meal.

To celebrate a wedding anniversary, my husband and I had planned to visit this restaurant for a Friday lunch, but our plans changed and we went for Sunday brunch instead. Everyone in the area talks the place up and so we were excited to experience it for the first time. I was sure that the atmosphere, the food and the... More

The ambiance is stunning. The alley way is the perfect place to spend an evening enjoying the night air with good food and friends. They often have musicians playing. The food is top notch and the service is great! The burger is referred to as the Best Burger In Town.

Stopped in before the theater. First visit to Sumter in years. Great dining experience. Wife's ravioli was so good with fresh pasta and my chicken on Gouda grits was super. Service great and price worth the value. Will return when in the area.

My family wanted to share a special meal so we decided on the Hamptons since its the best restaurant in Sumter. However on this visit, the food was perfect but the service was very poor. I had the chicken and waffles which were extraordinary. My wife had the fish tacos which she said were amazing. The portions were large and... More

This was my third visit to the Hamptons, and my first for dinner. Quite empty for the evening yet we received tremendous service and there were plenty of people there to assist in our dining experience. Sharing a great bottle of Pinot Noir and an appetizer, the calamari, my friend and I chatted casually over business. He had already had... More
