Savory Summerville

Eva’s on Maineva's on main restaurant logo

71 years is a long time!  Eva’s on Main St. in Summerville has been serving hungry folks since 1944!  Awesome Southern comfort food is served up every day of the week (open for breakfast and lunch weekdays, brunch on Saturdays and Sundays plus on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings for dinner until 8pm). This place is definitely a South Carolina treasure and well worth the ride to Summerville!

Here’s what some of their customers have to say:

“5 of 5 stars
An old-fashioned southern-style gem. Loved the food and the atmosphere. I felt like I stepped back in time. The service was warm, welcoming and attentive. The freshly brewed sweet tea was absolute perfection; smoothly rich… a true taste of the South. I appreciated the fixed menu. The fried chicken was epic. And the greens…slowly simmered in a ham hock…yeow! Every single item we ordered tasted so good…”

“We had a FANTASTIC meal at Zest! The Lamb was prepared perfect and the tenderloin was out of this world! The atmosphere was laid back with a very warm modern feel. The staff was friendly and fun. A good beer and wine selection along with perfectly cooked food made our experience a 10 out of 10. Can’t wait to go back again!…” -UrbanSpoon Fan

“A friend & I visited the first time for lunch & were delighted with the food & service. I had the pork tenderloin grilled cheese with gingered peaches & my friend had the salmon salad. I took my husband for dinner a few nights ago & we were equally pleased. It was hard to choose because everything looked so good but I decided on the rack of lamb & my husband had the special which was Cajun fried chicken with red rice & collard greens. Yum!!!” – Facebook review
