    Second visit to 151. Enjoy the relaxing entrance through the hotel ‘living room’ and the open spread out nature of the restaurant. We had 3 very delicious chef touched meals - steak, pasta, and scallops. Vegetables and sauces were wonderful. Be sure to try the amazing Caesar salad. My wife and I split the spaghetti squash salad and it was also so so tasty although actually a little heavy for a salad.

    Excellent place with very good food & service! We decided on this place while visiting my daughter in college. The place was very nice with a lot of history. Our waiter knew his stuff and was very attentive to our needs. The food was excellent. We would definitely go here again. The added touch was the chef personally coming out to greet the guests and see how things were.

    The menu offered a decent variety of options at a fair price. The food was good but was not outstanding. The caesar salad was overdressed and the chicken and waffles were good but lacked a little taste. The waffles were bland and the chicken was slightly dry. Our service on a busy day was very good and the ambience was great. I would eat here again but would hope that they refine the cooking just a bit.

    If you are in the Anderson SC area, this restaurant is a must. The Lamb Shank and Short Ribs were cooked perfectly. This was our first trip and we'll definitely be back several times. The restaurant opened 5 months ago so most people are still unaware of this hidden gem. If you love good food in a nice quiet environment with great service, (Special thanks to Dave!!) then you must eat at this place. You won't regret it!

    Wonderful dinner from start to finish in celebration of my husband’s birthday. We started with mussels to share served with amazing hot house made sourdough bread. Entrees of lamb shank and seared scallops followed. Each course was perfectly seasoned and prepared. We topped it off with a shared orange chocolate pot de creme. Our meals were accompanied by a lovely Sauvignon Blanc and a serviceable Pinot. Our waiter David was friendly and knowledgeable. We will definitely return!

    My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with lunch. Warm, friendly, professional staff. I had the french onion soup followed by the pimento cheese, praline bacon and friend green tomato meal. An absolute pleasure. My wife had the tomato bisque soup with a salad and salmon. Very enjoyable. This is a hidden gem. You will not be disappointed and we made reservations for lunch. Give them a try.

    I was ready to write a review before we even received our food, we were that impressed! The wait staff is very intentional and personal. Everything felt very high end. The food was amazing and Chef Farr went around and checked on us twice while we were there. They made sure we weren't on a time schedule since it was our anniversary. Everything was top notch and more than what we were expecting, just what Anderson needs! They are definitely doing something right, and I highly recommend giving them a try, especially if your celebrating an event.

    Had a wonderful experience at Restaurant 151 on a date with my wife. The manager seated us promptly and was extremely welcoming and hospitable. The food was as good as you'd expect from a restaurant of this caliber. Delicious and very hot. Our waitress was also attentive and friendly. The Head Chef also came out and checked on each table individually before they left.
