It’s a cute space but definitely not a quiet spot for dinner. The staff was nice but service was on the slow side. I’d guess that our server was newer or this is her first service job. My friend and I were about 50/50 on the food. Some we liked ok, but there were a couple of things I didn’t care as much for. I’ll probably give them another shot and try some different items! Little touches like having the creamsicle float served with a glass bottle of orange soda instead of a can of soda or boxing guests’ food for them would go a long way.

Food thoughtfully prepared. An experience. Watching chef at the counter is great. He uses interesting smoking methods under glass for some items. Fun!

This was my second visit to Kounter and I must say that I am truly impressed. I indicated at the time that I placed the reservation that I would be bringing my friend who was the widower of a Friendship 9 to celebrate her birthday. I asked them to please make her feel very special. From the moment we arrived the staff greeted my friend with a birthday wish and made sure we were seated in the area that displayed her husband's name. The lunch was awesome. Chef Rob, as well as his staf, made sure she felt celebrated and he even came to our table and introduced himself. He made sure that she knew in every way possible :-) that she was welcomed and special. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the food is very impressive. I am grateful for the acts of kindness that was shown and I can tell that it was very genuine. I pray for their continued success and I WILL BE BACK

This was our first time at Kounter. We had a reservation and were quickly seated. The menu looked great and my husband and I shared the chile garlic shrimp appetizer, which was delicious! I had a Cheerwine Sangria and the salmon. Thumbs up to both!! My husband had the shrimp and grits (which were delicious)... I might have tried them. The chef stopped by the table, which was a nice touch.

I took my daughter for a mother-daughter lunch to The Kounter. My daughter is a vegetarian and kind of picky. The Kounter is her new favorite place. Once again, it did not disappoint. Everything I try here is off the charts amazing!

Everything was absolutely delicious! So glad Rock Hill now has a more upscale dining option. Service was great & each bite was perfection. 10/10 recommend the smoked tuna poke appetizer and seared scallops/lobster gnocchi entrees. Make sure to save room for dessert also!

We were blown away with our experience at Kounter. One order of scallops, one of shrimp and grits. Presentation was excellent, shrimp and scallops were prepared just right; also had draft beer and fancy drink. Enjoyed Mom's chocolate pie for dessert. This restaurant is not to be missed and e will definitely repeat soon.
