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.

Service was very good. We enjoyed the flatbread pizza although it wasn’t as spicy as described. The potato soup was delicious...very rich & creamy.

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.

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.

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.

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.
