"We'll make you feel special"

Welcome to The Armory Steakhouse & Seafood

My name is Demetrios and I am the owner and Master Chef. I am originally from Athens Greece and I take great pride in my Greek heritage and bringing that sense of good food and warm atmosphere to each of my customers dining experience. We pride ourselves on making you feel special, with our freshly made foods, attentive service and diverse menu.

We use the freshest ingredients from local farmers and vendors whenever they are available. We bake our own breads and specialty deserts, we also hand cut our meats here at the restaurant. We have unique special Greek dishes you cannot get at any other restaurant. We also offer full catering services for all your special events.

Please come and dine with us in a charming atmosphere in one of Camden's rustic historic old buildings or enjoy South Carolina's beautiful weather and dine on our outside patio. I promise we will make you feel special and you will want to come back time and again..
