Excellent in all respects.....food, beverage, service. Main course always takes some time at Hampton’s, but the wait is worth it. Background music is contemporary rock....not what one usually hears in a top of the line restaurant.

Yet to have a bad meal/experience. An outstanding place to dine regardless of the occasion.

Best place to go in Sumter for food. But the service here is terrible. Hosts are often rude, timing between courses is glacial at best, dishes were not removed before next course was brought to table, many reminders required before the wine list was brought over (on a print out rather than a book), asking for any substitutions was met with resistance - overall not the experience you would expect from a "high-end" restaurant The Hamptons fashions itself to be. Yet sadly, there is not any competition for this restaurant in its category. The food is good - but that should not be a reason to provide lackluster service.

The food and service were equally amazing. The atmosphere was very nice but I did find it a little loud. An acoustic issue.

Fantastic dining experience. We both had the chicken pot pie and it was absolutely delicious. There's nothing like cooking from scratch and this place nailed it. I will cone here more often.

I was expecting an average restaurant. Fortunately, I was impressed with the waitress, food, and overall experience. Nothing short of a top notch place for a date night. I will definitely refer friends and family to this establishment. Great atmosphere and food. I will be returning!

The food was excellent! I really felt like we were dining on King Street in Charleston. At the last minute our daughter from college surprised us with a visit and the staff was very accommodating to change our reservation so she could attend.

I loved the atmosphere at The Hamptons! The food was incredible. There’s nowhere else in town to get such an experience. We ordered quite a bit of food, but the scallops and ravioli were delicious. I wish we would have saved room for dessert, because they looked amazing. We can’t wait to go back!

Exquisite as usual. The only thing I’d suggest is dimming the middle bright lights to create a better atmosphere. We enjoyed a cocktail in Rafters above Hamptons before descending to the dining room. The hand-made ravioli is always my go to. Love love love Hamptons!!

We dined on Huevos Rancheros and a second entree, Beef Brisket. Both were excellent. We enjoyed A Mimosa with our meal. Service was also excellent and unhurried. Don’t plan on a “quick lunch” at Hampton’s.

Great, great food. Service is above average but not excellent. Prices are moderate to high. Alcoholic drinks are good but pricey as well. Appetizer, glass of wine, entree will cost you around $50.

Sunday lunch was exquisite. My wife enjoyed fresh baked trout with wafer thin potato slices on the trout that looked like fish scales. The salmon with asparagus that I ordered was tender and flaky, and the seasoning was superb. All guests at a table are “plated” simultaneously.....a characteristic of high-end restaurants. But Hampton’s prices are reasonable given the food quality and service. Plan to have a leisurely meal. This type of cuisine takes time to prepare properly.

We had lunch on Valentine’s Day. I ordered salmon & grits. Everything was cooked perfectly, and portions were enough for one sitting. We also ordered the lemon blueberry desert with rosemary ice cream. The dessert was a small square, warm, and decadent. The vanilla ice cream was strange due to a savory spice like rosemary on ice cream. That’s the only thing that we didn’t enjoy. The restaurant was only about 1/5 filled at the time. The staff was friendly as always. Unique menu that tastes great!

Once again, Hamptons satisfied our craving for high end food and incredible ambiance in Sumter, SC. Recommend the scallops starter and beef tenderloin entrée. You won't be disappointed.

It was a great dinner but I was met with much surprise when I got there and was told I didn’t have a reservation. I opened my app and showed the confirmation text and they seemed shocked. The food more than made up for the mishap on the part of their reservation system.

Above expectations. Was greeted and seated right away. The exact right amount of time was given between food and drink. The meatball app with bread was delicious and had the right amount of zest. The lobster course was our favorite by far with light vegetables and creamy raviolis and sauce. The management and wait staff were superb. Compliments to the chef. To be an annual if not more regular holiday treat.
