Fish Market Seafood, Bar and Grill, Fort Mill, S.C. – Restaurant Review

 
What a pleasant surprise to find such a jewel in the middle of Baxter Village in Fort Mill, S.C. The Fish Market Grill is a treasure within a treasure, residing within a quaint shopping area loaded with charming retail establishments. The Fish Market looks like an antebellum home with attached carriage house, as southern as can be. White with black trim, a wraparound porch with white columns and ceiling fans, and black wrought iron tables and chairs spaced conveniently for outside service, you know you are in for a treat as soon as you arrive. It is fronted by a white picket fence and a small park with a three tier fountain, a large pole clock and many azalea bushes and other flowering plants, with walk ways for strolling.
That, my friend is only the entrance. The interior is upscale in design, quiet and welcoming. The menu is outstanding. We were in a fish market restaurant but enjoyed high quality beef. For our appetizer we chose a crab and spinach fondue that was fluffy and perfectly blended. Served with tri-color chips it was as visually pleasing as it was delicious. Next we enjoyed spinach salad with balsamic dressing followed by tenderloin of beef brochette with roasted vegetables and rice. The meat was so tender I couldn’t eat it fast enough, cooked just right and accompanied by vegetables that were also grilled to complement the beef. We were on a roll so we opted for dessert, or I should say Bob did. He thoroughly enjoyed his chocolate bread pudding but I couldn’t hold another bite and was forced to pass on dessert.
We loved the quiet atmosphere and attentive service. Our only complaint is that they are not in Houston. I do wish we had time to try their seafood. I know it would be as high quality as the beef and it is my loss to have to leave without even a taste.
Their website states “Fish Market, Seafood Bar and Grill is York County’s premier destination for fresh fish and quality seafood. Conveniently located off interstate I-77 in Fort Mill’s Baxter Village, Fish Market Seafood, Bar and Grill is just a short drive for residents of Charlotte, NC and Rock Hill, SC.”
I am pleased to highly recommend this restaurant to you, in the spring it will be even lovelier. There are many more delicious items on the menu. Tell them we sent you and it probably won’t get you any perks but we will be pleased you did.

The Great American Grill at Hilton Garden Inn in Rock Hill, South Carolina – Restaurant Review

 
Bob and I have had quite a weekend. We attended a conference in Fort Mill, SC this past weekend and stayed in the Hilton Garden Inn in Rock Hill, SC. We have been busy, busy and thank goodness our accommodations were excellent. I must say the breakfasts were surprisingly above excellent, at least a 4.5 star meal. Think indulgence to the max. Think down home delicious in a restaurant. Think “I’m not going to skip breakfast today!” The Great American Grill chefs, Scott and Chris put on quite a spread. Scrambled eggs, two kinds of sausage, perfectly crisp bacon, yummy grits (very southern dish), fluffy biscuits, hot oatmeal, make your own waffles, yogurt treats, fresh fruit, pastries, coffee, juices, and milk. That was the basics, there are also on-request pancakes, French Toast, and omelets, plus more. Each day there is a specialty item in addition to the regular menu, the first day we had chicken fried steak with cream gravy and the next we had southern fried chicken. The restaurant is open and attractive, very clean and inviting, the service impeccable with the waitresses attentive to our every possible need. Being a breakfast lover I was in heaven, and ate more than I should. It was a delight to get up to such a wonderful meal so I succumbed to temptation day after day and so did Bob. I think I need to walk home to Texas now. If you are ever in the area, please stop in and check out the Hilton Garden Inn, Great American Grill and Chefs Scott and Chris (pictures). You will be glad you did. The Grill is open to the general public so anyone can stop in for breakfast, and be sure to tell them Down Home Delicious sent you.
