Diner Reviews
  • "Aana was our server this week; she and Lisa are the best servers at Rice Paddy! Always great to get such special attention. Owners are always there in the bar or smoking outside. They never bother checking to see whether customers are satisfied. And they never say goodbye or thank you as you walk right past them. Thank goodness for Alana and Lisa, who were part of RP before new owners took over!"

  • "We have dined with you 3 times over the past few years. The first 2 times were really special, but this past weekend was not very pleasant. The service was very slow, and for what we ordered it should not have taken so long to prepare. The restaurant was not crowded, so that should not have been the problem. We never saw more that 2 waiters (ours and one more). Our food was good, with the exception of the fried oysters. We were disappointed that the menu on your website had been changed, and that your prices were higher. Sorry, but we cannot recommend the Rice Paddy to our friends who might be coming to the Plantation Tours in the future."

  • "As always, Alaina, our server was most attentive. She and Lisa are why we keep coming back. We have been eating at the Rice Paddy for 15 years. Fortunately, the new owners have kept the signature dishes we love. The owners are always there but never speak, just hang out at the bar or stand outside the entrance smoking. Very annoying to have to fight your way through smoke to enter sometimes. At least the bar and restaurant is non smoking."

  • "No refills on water, not asked about a second cocktail, requested additional bread not delivered. Main course was very good and would reorder. Will eat there again."

  • "I have always considered the Rice Paddy to be one of the best restaurants in South Carolina and have patronized it for more than twenty years. On this occasion (Valentine Day), we chose the Valentine special which included salad, entree and dessert to share. Service was good, ambience also good and food, for the most part, was good. Unfortunately the prime rib, which was cooked to just the right degree of pinkness and had excellent flavor, was not tender. I thought I would never finish chewing, chewing and chewing some more before I was able to swallow. I would prefer that they use a little better cut of beef even if they have to charge a little more."

  • "As always, a great place to eat, a gem of Georgetown. Comparable to any downtown Charleston but with better service and ambiance."

  • "We tried this restaurant after several recommendations from local residents. We were not disappointed. The food was Excellent, service just right. The restaurant is a converted historical bank. The excellent wine cellar in the Historic vault, lovely bar adjacent to the restaurant that was quite Busy as well. THEN THE food, each member of our party ordered a fish dish or crab cakes. Some meals were served with delicious grits(I don't normally like grits, but these were great), others with fresh veggies and rice. We were delighted with our meals, the decor, ambiance and service. Our one disappointment was when it came to order dessert, they were out of the recommended "derby pie". So we settled for an excellent coffee. We will be back."

  • "The Rice Paddy restaurant not only has great food, it has all the charm of the old south. It is a classic."

  • "We've been to the Rice Paddy on more than a few occasions and always enjoyed the experience. This past visit was no exception on many levels, but if I had to think of something to "complain" about it would be that the shrimp and corn chowder seemed a bit cool and the oysters Rockefeller were a little chared. Still and all, a very nice dinner with friends who had never been here before."

  • "Dined here on New Year's Eve. The menu was limited, but the food was delicious. We had the bisque, grouper and lobster Rockefeller; great sauces and presentation, and the peppermint parfait. The service was very good; we were not rushed; had a nice leisurely dinner."

  • "As usual when near Georgetown, SC, we have dinner at the Rice Paddy. This time, a few weeks before Christmas, was no exception. And as usual, nothing disappointed. Service and food were excellent. The Christmas tree this year was the prettiest we've ever seen there, and the location at the front of the restaurant was perfect. Thank you for another fine evening!"

  • "The scallops were perfectly seared. The gumbo appetizer was excellent but a little too filling"

  • "The entire experience was first class, from the generous pour of Scotch through three courses and a cognac. The service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive, and each course was interesting and well-executed. I would recommend this restaurant to any of my friends, especially since the other restaurants we visited in Georgetown were far below this high standard."

  • "Awesome dining experience. Food was superb and so was service. Pricey AND well worth every penny. Thanks for an evening of dining with my new wife that I will never forget."

  • "We arrived about 15 minutes prior to our reservation time of 5:30 and decided to have a drink at the bar, although we could have been seated immediately. Bar service was impeccable and drinks were exceptional. Beastly Bill, my partner, said his Bourbon Old Fashioned was the best he had ever had (and he's had quite a few - lol!). My cosmo was excellent also. Once seated for dinner, I ordered the appetizer special of roasted brussel sprouts with a béarnaise sauce - Bill and I both really enjoyed it. My main course was crab cakes over creamy grits and Bill had the Prime Rib special. Both were excellent - in fact, Bill said his Prime Rib was the best he's ever had. The evening was very relaxing and satisfying - highly recommend."
