A true dining experience – that is the best way to sum up the Culinary Critic’s latest adventure. The Old Edgefield Grill is where one can savor not only the food but the atmosphere as well. It exudes Southern class and charm. Set in a two story Victorian style home built in 1906 and shaded in front by large magnolia trees, this upscale restaurant uses the four main rooms on the first floor of the home for serving patrons; the back area is used as the kitchen. Weather permitting, seating is also available on the large front porch. In the front room off to the left of the long, narrow entry hallway is a bar area. This is the only room in the restaurant that disrupts its historical feel, and only then due mostly to the two televisions found in opposite corners of the room. To describe each of the three dining rooms in detail would take too much space, so we will concentrate on the one in which we dined. (However, just telling that of the other two one is dedicated to Senator Strom Thurmond and the other to the National Wild Turkey Federation, one can get a sense of their décor.) We were seated in the front right dining room which is painted a deep red. On its walls hang various framed pictures. It holds five to six square tables able to seat four and in the far right corner of the room is a fireplace on which was sitting a large floral display. Dark hardwood floors accented by large area rugs are present throughout the restaurant, and a mixture of jazz and golden oldie tunes drifts through the air. Large uncovered windows allow plenty of natural light into the rooms which are also lightly lit as night time falls. Each table is covered by a white linen tablecloth over which is a protective white sheet of parchment type paper. On the tables rest ready wine glasses as well as ornately folded black linen napkins. The look of all three dining rooms is both sophisticated and inviting.
The set up of The Old Edgefield Grill is such that it is intimate and romantic yet lends itself comfortably to conversations with fellow patrons. It can be as private or as open as one wants to make it. The Old Edgefield Grill is “swanky but relaxed.” It is a great little place right in the heart of Edgefield S.C. where one can get gussied up (or not) and eat fine food. This was a great dining experience for us. The ambiance, the service, the food – it exceeded our expectations.
