Our family of 14 enjoyed a wonderful meal here with out of town guests. There is huge variety and everything we tried was good. We especially likedthe fried catfish, yeast rolls, sweet tea, and egg custard pie. The child's special is a great bargain. Reminds me of the many cafeterias that used to be in the South. Glad this one... More

A feeling of the old days still a good stop. I had not been to a cafeteria in many years and saw this restaurant during my travels. It was a pleasant surprise. Many hands to wait on you and then so many good choices. Just good old fashion food at a very reasonable price. Many choices and a low price.

I have eaten at many S & S cafeterias over the last 40 years and still love it. They have so many things to choose from. I love most all of it but especially the trout almondine.

Our waitress took forever took serve us and we had the wrong drink order. When she finally came she had an attitude and did not apologize for taking so long (the restaurant was not full). When she came and asked if everything was ok I said no and she just walked away. Usually the staff are really nice except for... More

My sister and I went to this cafeteria for dinner because we wanted to eat a wide variety of food which you can do at a cafeteria. She was able to get fried chicken by the piece and I had the chicken n dumplings. Love comfort food at the end of a busy day. The desserts were great also !

Since they closed our S&S in Columbia, we were excited about finding this unit still open in Charleston. If you want a basic "home cooked" meat and veggies, you can't go wrong!

This is about the best place in Charleston to get an inexpensive meal with an entree, salad, dessert and a great selection of home cooked vegetables all for under $10. S&S Cafeterias has been in Charleston since the 1950s, first being located in downtown Charleston before branching out into West Ashley in the 1970s. The Sam Rittenberg Boulevard location is...
