Visitors to Hartsville have a lot of choices when it comes to dining. Here are a few favorites:

Indulge yourself in the fun and food of the Midnight Rooster and enjoy tasty daily specials, the smell of freshly ground coffee beans and a wide variety of food options crafted from local ingredients. Breakfast, lunch and brunch are offered in a hip and funky atmosphere that represents good times, good people, good coffee and good food. The quaint American cafe is vegetarian-friendly, stocked with vegan dishes and offers gluten-free choices for all palates.

Homey and comfortable with an upscale twist, Sam Kendall’s specializes in classic and contemporary American cuisine. Its talented team of chefs takes pride in serving seafood, steaks, house delicacies and mouthwatering daily featured items like veal or lamb. The full-service bar features Kershaw County’s largest wine selection, sure to please the seasoned connoisseur. Be sure to add this popular hot spot to your mandatory stops. You won’t be disappointed!

Ruth’s Drive In has been family-owned and -operated since 1945. Ruth’s specializes in hot dogs, hamburgers and Southern-style lunches. The business started as a grocery store with a sawdust floor. In 1948, Ruth’s began selling hot dogs out of the back window. In 2009, Southern Living launched a quest to find the top pimento cheeseburgers in South Carolina and Ruth’s was the only small, family-owned restaurant included on the list. Drive up and order a famous, juicy pimento cheeseburger to see for yourself why its a top pick.

Bizzell’s Food & Spirits offers an upscale dining experience in a calm, informal environment. Open for lunch and dinner, it features an outdoor patio, full-service bar and a varied menu of local and regional dishes. Whether you're looking for a place to enjoy a low-key lunch with friends and family or a more formal dinner setting for celebratory occasions, Bizzell’s Food & Spirits fills the bill.
