A nice little place in Spartanburg. The food is very good and the wine list is nice. If you are looking to get away from the chains for dinner, this is the place.

Made reservations online, table was ready when we arrived. Service was very good and so was the food. They had a solo musician who really added to the ambiance. There was a large party seated next to us who was extremely loud and this took away from our "quiet evening out" but can't blame the restaurant for that. Will definitely return.

We had a wonderful meal at II Samuels. Everything we tried was to die for. The scallops were perfectly cooked, juicy and flavorful. The buttermilk fried oysters literally melt in your mouth and the seafood farfalle was full of crab, shrimp and scallops. they do not skimp on portions here. my husband got the buttermilk fried chicken but didn't like how it tasted; they took it back and gave him another entree for free. Our waitress was very attentive without being overbearing. We will definitely return.

Favorite Spartanburg restaurant. Highly recommend their fried chicken breast served with sweet/hot chili sauce. Also love the flat iron steak, salads, crab cakes. Slowly working my way through their menu! Never disappointed.

Dinner on the patio, even though it was near a busy road the great selection of music covered most of the noise. Great food for the price. Will definitely come back again to try some of the other dishes.

The cheese bread was very good. That was about it. We were overcharged for drinks. The fried pickles were greasy. The pasta needed sauce. The pork tenderloin was tough and dry. The red snapper was also greasy.

The service was extremely slow and they appeared to use the extra time to over cook the food. The menu is somewhat limited. Overall nothing special or inspiring. Will not be back anytime soon.

Out of town guests escaping Hurricane Irma. Great food and a quiet atmosphere where you can have a good conversation. Most restaurants in Spartanburg are too noisy for my taste. Soft background music over the speakers and a very nice, friendly (but not invasive) waitress. Candles on the table would add to the ambience. Enjoyed the evening.

Enjoyable dinner experience on our anniversary. Good food and great service. Especially liked the hot pimento cheese app and the horseradish mash (potatoes) side. A little noisy with a large group nearby but overall atmosphere was good. Might dine outside on covered patio next time. Thumbs up for II Samuels. Special thanks to Morgan for her great service.

Server was excruciatingly slow!! I order Salmon and my wife ordered chicken. It seemed to be a unusually long wait our food. Both were overcooked. Salmon was supposed to come with a pineapple topping but it was an onion apple something. Wife's carrot souffle was mostly black and it looked unappetizing.
Server rarely checked on us, never refilled my water, didn't offer us dessert and after much waiting we finally got the bill then another 10 minutes passed before she came to finally check us out. It wasn't busy and the other waitress had more tables and was extremely efficient with her customers. Not the best experience in one of the few restaurants we have in the area.
