The food is just like eating at home. The staff is nothing but wonderful and over-willing to help. The atmosphere is like sitting down with friends and enjoying a wonderful meal. You need to try it out to discover real Southern Hospitality and cuisine.

Compton's Kitchen is a family owned and operated restaurant famous for its breakfast fare. It is convenient to Knox Abbott Drive, Highway 1, Highway 378, State Street, and can be reached from downtown Columbia in 15 minutes. A friendly, "down home" feel, and generous servings. Not a clinker on the menu.
