    Dining at the Hamptons is truly unique. From the time you enter the restaurant and you leave you are pampered by the entire staff. All of the staff greet you and have genuine smiles. Seating arrangements are intimate and perfect. If you are looking for a place to wind down, experience a perfectly prepared meal and be treated like royalty, The Hamptons should be your destination. Definitely will return and encourage friends, family, and strangers to dine here.

    We always like to find that "off the beaten path" dining experience, and this was it! The warm welcome from the staff was a great way to start off the night. Such a genuine & friendly staff here! We started with a classic martini at the bar which was made to perfection. We followed with an amazing dinner and excellent choice of wine from a list that even the most picky wine enthusiast would appreciate. We live in the Midwest, but will most definitely make it back to this gem. You know you have found a great place when you're still talking about how wonderful everything was 4 days later. Thank you for providing us with a fantastic dining experience!

    We went for my husband's birthday. The food is excellent!! We had to wait quite awhile for our food, even the 1st course which was soup and salad. So if you go, don't be in a hurry to eat. We were seated at a table right by the phone near a kitchen which is not a great place to set. That table should only be used when there is no where else to seat couples.

    Enjoyed a fabulous dinner here. Food was beyond words. Every bite was packed with flavors only a seasoned chef could create. Scallops were devine but almost matched by the fabulous sauce and gnochi they were served on! Best steak we've had in years! Great wine selection. Desserts to die for. We were dead set on the sticky bun with caramel sauce but selected the Boston Creme Pie in the end and were wowed with every bite! Pricey but well worth it. Immaculate service. We shared the steak and grouper and they were very accommodating in plating them together. Only negative was the closeness of the table to the neighbors. Felt a little like we were all one party, but still a fabulous meal! We will be back!

    Again, Hamptons did not disappoint. Had the amazing fresh local heirloom tomato capresi with fresh mozzarella which was divine. The tomatoes, were straight off the vine could taste so good, simple, fresh and delectable. The Scallops (my favorite dish) were fantastic, seared perfectly. Service was friendly and helpful. Looking forward to another great dining experience again soon!

    This was our first dining experience at the Hamptons. When we first arrived we sat at the bar and enjoyed our conversation with the lady tending bar. When we got to our table and looked at our menu, we were pleased to see a line at the top congratulating us on our wedding anniversary--what a special & personal remembrance for us. We each ordered a different entrée and we could not have been more pleased-- portion size, presentation, taste, etc. We definitely plan to go again and take friends and/or family. Have already recommended it to others. Thank you Hamptons for a fine dining experience on our anniversary!

    It's very difficult to find such a wonderful dining experience like the one my family and I experienced at Hamptons! The food was spectacular; there was not a single thing ordered that wasn't enjoyed. You can tell the chef puts a great deal of thought and personal experience in his menu. The service was great as well: from the greeting at the front door, to the waitress, to all the other employees that were working that night. You can tell that everyone enjoys working there and that definitely added to the overall positive vibe of the place. I will most definitely take friends and business partners out to this spot again!

    We've been to the Hamptons many times, because its the best restaurant in Sumter. It can be a bit pricey especially if you also order wine, but I think its worth it. I like that the chef likes to experiment a bit and the menu is always very good with many options. They have very good desserts and the cupcakes are outstanding. I especially like the mignardises, the selection of mini desserts. Besides good food, they also have a nice cocktail menu which changes regularly. The whole ambiance of the restaurant is outstanding and they have a very nice outdoor patio with a big fireplace and sometimes live music in the weekends. They also have a nice separate room for big groups and events.

    Started with the bibb salad. The pickled radishes, candied cashews and homemade dressing made this salad both unique and delicious. Had the tenderloin for the main entrée. It was cooked to perfection and the sides of fresh vegetables and homemade ravioli were amazing. Service was great as usual. Can't wait to come back!

    My wife and I have eaten at the Hamptons twice and it was our anniversary both times. As usual the service was excellent. We were greeted with smiles from the time we walked in to the time we left. The waiter did an outstanding job of checking on us at just the right times. What really made this experience special was that I had read another review of a couple celebrating their 38 year anniversary, and the restaurant had it printed on the menus! I had made my reservation, so I called to see if they could do something like that for us and I was very surprised (wife was pretty happy also) to see they had done the same thing for us. It just made the moment that much more special. And of course to top it off the food was very delicious.

    My wife and I love Hamptons, the food is always excellent! We decided to take my mother-in-law for dinner to celebrate her birthday. I would not recommend this Trestaurant for children, but we had our two in tow. I think they did a great job of accomadating us, and our children were allowed to share an entree that they brought out already halved on separate plates. The kids were well behaved and enjoyed the meal almost as much as the adults did (though they were a little disappointed with their drink options). Overall we were very satisfied and may be willing to try the whole experiment again! Nana was a little sad that steak wasn't on the locally grown, ever changing menu, but she still loved her meal.

    We just celebrated our 38th anniversary at The Hampton's with several of our friends in the Alleyway. They had set up a table for us and each guest had their very own special menu. They printed menus up with the heading being " Congratulations on the 38th Wedding Anniversary for the Weissenstein's " How wonderful was that ? !!!!!!!! The menu had a picture of a wedding ring in the middle and a dove. It was just lovely . It was very special . We appreciated the thoughts and efforts the Hampton's made to help make this a special occasion. The food and service was just as special . I certainly would recommend anyone to go and enjoy dinner at The Hampton's. Thank you all for a great evening.

    We select Hamptons over all restaurants in Sumter and over serveral we could choose from in nearby Florence and Camden. Every special occasion we celebrate at Hamptons and purchase gift cards from there when we want to do something for friends. Ambiance, service and food make every visit memorable. The menu is never tiresome but is refreshed from time to time so each experience is new. Each time we go to Hamptons we comment that Hamptons is what others are trying to achieve but don't quite make it. Just a great place.

    The occasion was my wife's birthday. They have an extensive wine list and unique mixed drinks. The food was excellent well seasoned and the portions satisfactory. My beef was perfectly cooked medium rare, as I requested, and was very tender. The service was excellent. Reservations are strongly recommended for dinner, and we were seated immediately. I will recommend The Hamptons to anyone.
