Fried snapper was good, but the veal orecchiette was very bland. Service was good and food is reasonably priced.

Good food and service, upscale for the area but not pretentious. They did not have our first wine selection and did not offer non-alcoholic beer, neither of which was a problem, but worth noting. Very friendly staff, and food quality was excellent.

Visiting our kids over the weekend and chose II Samuels for a double birthday dinner. What a great choice! Service was great and the food was excellent. I personally had the fried red snapper. Being from Charleston and surrounded by the best seafood restaurants in the world, I was blown away by the red snapper. We all will definitely dine there again on our next visit to Spartanburg. I did not get the waiter's name (James C. was on the receipt), but he was very attentive, personable, and gracious. Thank you for a wonderful culinary experience!

One of my favorite Spartanburg restaurants. The service I experienced on my most recent visit was outstanding. I have food allergies, and the waiter went above and beyond to make sure that everything was safe for me. Food is always delicious--this place never disappoints :-)

The food was not good. The food did not have any seasoning or spice to it. The waiter was really nice but the overall experience was not up to par.

Excellent service. Food is delicious. The red snapper and grits were outstanding. One suggestion: add one or two options for lighter dessert, like sorbet.

Great service from our waitress. One weakness of hers was that she was not sufficiently familiar with the ingredients in the dishes. One person in my party asked for entrees with no meat, but was served bacon in his entree. We had to send it back, but this should have been avoided. I was served a petit salad and shrimp and grits. I think both were good but not great. I will keep this restaurant on my list of ones to use but I will look for alternatives as well.

I love this restaurant. We live in Greer and travel to this restaurant. The food is excellent. We love Twinkles too although she was not there this past weekend. She's a great addition and bartender. She really knows how to make a great drink from the old days. Busy night in there on Friday because of Restaurant Week. Will definitely return. First trip was on our Living Social. Great deal.

I am leaving this feedback based on the comments that I received from my co-workers that attended the dinner. (I didn't actually go to the business dinner.) Our managers were very pleased with the overall dinner. They were also excited to have another option for dinner in Spartanburg. I think you will see more of our team for buisness dinner outings in the future.

Thank you - Ritrama Inc.

Another fantastic meal from a Spartanburg favorite. Start with fried oysters and a customized salad with poached pears. Next up was seafood farfelle with just the right combo of shellfish, and amazing vodka sauce. And a chicken mushroom penne that was to die for. And half sizes were perfect amount of great food. Top off with champagne (compliments of the house), and some wonderful Malbec wine to top off a perfect night.

As a Department of a company my group came for our Christmas Luncheon together. We don't get to sit and talk amongst ourselves much since we are quite busy. The ambiance and location gave us a quick place to go and not to loud that we couldn't hear each other. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. Will definitely recommend for business lunches and for brunch with friends.

The seafood farfalle was very filling. Ordered by two people at table. I ordered duck which I asked to be crispy yet while tasty was definitely not crispy. Overall I would try again.

A family member from out of town came into town for a wedding. We and our spouses met at Two Samuels for dinner, and had an excellent time. I chose Two Samuels because of the wide variety of excellent food that was offered, and the restaurant did not disappoint. The food and service were both excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant!

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.

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.
