Michael's Rock Hill Grille

Voted Best Place to take a Date, and Best Patio

Reviewed By barberrr - Charlotte, North Carolina

My wife and I had an enjoyable lunch. Both of us ordered the soup du jour, split pea with ham. Tasty -- the peas were slightly underdone but a little more than true al dente. Not mushy like Campbell's, and definitely not out of a can. My wife had the Maryland-style Crab Cakes, I ordered the Chicken Fajita Wrap. Both came with a pile of crispy homemade potato chips. Very good dishes, although the "remoulade" served with her Crab Cakes was not very good, tasted like vinegar and tomato. The restaurant is a converted home, with a nice outdoor dining area under a shady pergola in front, but not for a wintery day like today. Pretty nice-sized lunch crowd, mostly older folks like ourselves. We will definitely be back to sample more. Brunch is served from 11am to 3pm. The Benedict Arnold sounded tempting.

The Dixie Pig Rock Hill

Reviewed By 717letsgotraveling - Warfordsburg, Pennsylvania

A long trip home, and we stopped for a late lunch at the Dixie Pig. We had the barbecue hash, which included chicken, pork, and potatoes over rice. We chose this dish, because it came with three sides, and the list of sides were mouthwatering. My mother and I both had macaroni and cheese , and she had potato salad and cabbage, while I chose red slaw and collards with black eye peas. We shared, and everything was Southern-fied good. I used some hot sauce on the collards for enhancement, and the hot food, including the hush puppies, became cold very quickly, but it was still a good experience, and I would go back. If you’re in Rock Hill check out this local joint, The Dixie Pig.

Legal Remedy Brewing

Please Note: Kitchen service ends one hour prior to closing. Our kitchen area is small and we mix our breading daily, so we cannot guarantee a gluten-free environment. We will be happy to accommodate dietary needs as best as we can. Legal Remedy Brewing was founded in 2009 by five Fort Mill, SC friends who turned their collective passion for making and enjoying great beer into a craft brewing business. After entering and winning their first formal homebrewing contest in 2012, the group continued to refine their recipes and hired its first full-time brewmaster in 2014. In 2015 a vacant Rock Hill, SC car dealership was purchased and converted into a craft brewery and brewpub. Legal Remedy Brewing beers, including Alibi Pale Ale, Sequestered Saison and Pro Bono Porter are presently served at the brewpub alongside food that is just as crafty as the beer. In addition to on-site sales, Legal Remedy Brewing beers are available in restaurants and retailers throughout the Carolinas.

We had a fantastic breakfast here and enjoyed the concept of the community table. I had the El Heffe Burrito which was just the right size and so good! They have many interesting things on the menu but also the more traditional breakfast fare. They had good coffee, too.

The Flipside Restaurant

Reviewed By ArwenElf - York, South Carolina

The location is small and narrow and somewhat confusing to get to, but the food is very good!! Well seasoned and good portions. My appetizer was the avocado toast and it was amazing!! I had actually never had avocado toast before, but I certainly will be wanting to have some again! My entree was the lamb with the vegetable medley which was very good, perfectly cooked and seasoned. For dessert I got the pound cake. The atmosphere can be casual or dressy. Also the biscuits were very good!

Mario's Pizza & Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By Dan556 - Rock Hill, South Carolina

We've heard about Mario's and finally had an opportunity to visit there for dinner. We were greeted upon entering and chose a table.

The menu is varied and full of delicious-sounding food choices. My wife and I ordered lasagna and the Chicken Parmesan, each of which came with a side salad and garlic bread.

The food was brought to the table more quickly than we expected. As usual, we each ate only half of the entree and planned to swap the leftovers for lunch the next day. The food was really good...sort of a melt-in-your-mouth experience.

I'm sure everything else on the menu is just as delicious. The service and friendly atmosphere will definitely bring us back again.

White Horse Restaurant

Met for dinner with a few friends at 5:30, we were seated right after a table large enough for our group of 8 was assembled. Later, there was a large group waiting for a table - timing is everything. The menu provides a good variety, the servers were prompt and friendly - it was a very good visit at the White Horse.

LongHorn Steakhouse

Reviewed By William N - Rock Hill, South Carolina

Had an early dinner there last night which was an excellent experience. We were seated quickly. Our Server, Brenna, was prompt and attentive throughout the meal. I had the 6 oz Filet with Lobster Tail and the wife had the 6 oz Filet with Crab Cake. Both meals were cooked as we requested. Both were tender, delicious, and servings were ample. Our desserts (me: Key Lime Cheesecake in a Jar; wife: Lava Cake with Ice Cream) were quite delicious and almost too large to finish. Brenna kept a close eye on us and topped off my iced tea and the wife's coffee regularly. Atmosphere was great and not so subdued that you felt like you had to whisper; yet not so loud as to be raucous. Our booth was clean when we sat down. The Dining Area was clean with no evidence of stains or dust/dirt in the traffic areas. Pricing was equitable and fair for the size and flavor of the foods.

We went for a birthday dinner and we were not disappointed! The food tastes just like my Italian grandmother's food! We enjoyed the chicken and veal parmesan. The breadsticks served with a side of marinara sauce were delicious! They did not have those the last time we visited.
