I'm no help, but curious to see the replies! Every time I make the trip to the Tack Room I wind up eating somewhere quick like Subway, because I can never find any other options. I would love to include a nice lunch spot for my afternoons spent shopping there.
FYI, Lunch in Camden mean lunchtime...like noon til 1....MAYBE 2. If you want lunch at something other than a chain, you need to get it done. I spent several winters in Camden, and we always seemed to suffer from forgetting this!
The Armory (I think?) is good for lunch.
I once ate at The Pearl for lunch. It was a kick. Like sitting down in someone's grandma's dining room! Lemonade and iced tea. It was good, too, if I recall.
I don't know if I ate at Sam Kendall's, but I KNOW I ate in that space. Whatever it was, it was delicious.
I also really like Indigo Jones, if it is still there.
There's a funky place outside of town...it was in an old general store. May have even been called that. It had a cool atmosphere and lots of good, southern kind of food. I ate fried alligator there.
Jealous. I love the Tack Room! That and the hacking out on hunt country are the only two reasons to go to Camden (sorry, Camden folks. It's sooooo sleepy for my taste!).
Was that general store at Boykin's Mill? I had lunch at such a place when we were stationed at Shaw AFB in the mid-90's. There was also a really good restaurant at the same site where DH and I had a 15th anniversary dinner. Pricey, but one of the best meals I've ever had.
You are correct on Boykin Mill outside of town, heading toward Rembert if I recall correctly. Neat place!
Another vote for Everyday Gourmet. I always stop in for lunch after emptying my pockets at the Tack Room. The brie & bacon is very good, but I always get the same thing everytime: turkey & swiss on sourdough all the way (lettuce, tomato, sprouts, horseradish...) Yummy!
Hate that the Paddock closed. There is a good sushi place in town too, but can't recall the name. Maybe someone else knows. Have fun~ Camden is a 2 hour drive from where I live & my favorite daytrip besides Charleston!
