Outside the City Limits: Savory Summerville

Summerville is the savory sort, folks! A 90 minute drive for supper is nothing short of normal for many around Columbia who crave to get out of the city and head out on a day trip looking for adventure. This gem of a town is also on the way to Charleston, so you could even stop in here on the way to or from. Lengths are taken for savory, healthy, fun food, so this is us encouraging you to get Outside the City Limits and try something new!

“My kinda place. So cute inside. Loved the mason jar glasses. I loved how it was very fresh, clean, and trendy but still SOUTHERN. I went there for lunch and had the smoked salmon salad and thai eggplant wrap. I will definitely be going back. ” – Em

“We were looking for a local place to eat (not a chain) we found Five Loaves on the web. We decided to try it. So glad we did. They have a daily special which is continually changing. We tried the pork tacos as an appetizer. So good with green tomatoes. We had the yellow fin and the shrimp. Both were fresh that day and outstanding , very flavorful and the presentation was very appetizing. Service was great. Very friendly. The owner came out and talked with us. Loved it so much we went back a couple of days later for lunch. Best sweet tea I have ever tasted. This is THE place not to miss in Summerville.” – Patricia

“Loved this restaurant, from the historical charm to the wonderful food! The Cajun pasta and the peanut butter & chocolate cake are amazing!! The staff was very nice and helpful! I would definitely come back!” – Julie
“This place is a hidden treasure in Summerville. This was our first time eating here. My wife and I were very impressed by the food quality, service is good also. The interior of the restaurant is very relaxing as well. We arrived 30 minutes before the evening crowd rolled in so we were just about done with our meals when we noticed a two man band arriving. We will definitely be back.” – John
“Husband had short ribs with mashed potatoes and I had filet mignon with blue cheese butter. Over the top-perfect. Price was reasonable for two with dessert at $45.00. Guitar player on Friday night made his guitar “sing.” We did not want to leave. Service was spot on-not too fussy but there when the drinks were empty with refills. Old world charm of the building and the comfy bench seats were nice touches to make you feel comfortable but yet very homey as well.” – Angela
Monday – Sunday: 11:00am – 2:00am
