Reviews for Workmen's Cafe

What a generous, friendly, authentic establishment...oh and they create amazing food! The service was quick and friendly...very 'neighborhood' place...not formal...I like that when I travel. My grandsons (8 & 5) could not get enough of the fried chicken, rice, cornbread and mac & cheese! The fish & shrimp was delicious and the collard greens were on point! The Workman's authentic eatery!!!

Food did not look that appetizing at first since it is served cafeteria style. However, once you bite into it, that all changes. Delicious home cooking! The beef ribs were fork tender and the gravy is full of flavor. Sides were all delicious. Corn bread, mac and cheese, collard greens, broccoli casserole were all super delicious.

This place is awesome! Might be easy to miss but you'll be glad you went. Was looking for some Southern food before I left Charleston and ended up here. The two ladies who were working were super sweet. The fried chicken was hot, crispy, and juicy on the inside. The ribs were sweet and fall off the bone tender. The Mac & cheese was great--cheesey and not mushy roux. I loved the Broccoli casserole and the sweet potato biscuit too. Yeah, this place is simple; don't let the full review
