Restaurant Impossible - Sweet Tea - CLOSED

Sweet Tea Restaurant Impossible
Chef Robert Irvine visits Chapin, South Carolina, to help turn around Sweet Tea, a relatively new restaurant Southern style restaurant being run by a couple with no experience in the restaurant trade. With the owner's father's life savings and retirement fund depending on the success of the restaurant Robert is determined to turn the restaurant around. Christine and Jeffrey have been struggling to keep the restaurant afloat for a year and there isn't much time or money left. The food comes straight out of a packet, can or the freezer, nothing is prepared fresh in the restaurant.  Robert turns around the menu adding new fresh dishes and helps them to make proper sweet tea. The restaurant is also given a makeover with a more light and airy feel to the decor. 


What Happened Next? 

Reviews after Robert's visit are average with negative comments on service and food. There are however noted improvements in the taste of the sweet tea they were serving. The restaurant closed in the fall of 2011. Ava’s Copper Pot Bistro opened it's place, reviews were very good but this closed in 2014.
