    Highly recommend! We are new to SC and it’s been hard to find a place where the food and service are both great. The food was amazing and the staff was phenomenal. We will definitely be returning.

    The food quality speaks well for itself. But, the service was 2nd to none. Our server Trey was just the perfect mix of attentive, pleasant, and engaging. And, he was well supported by the supplemental staff. Very highly recommended.

Discover Columbia

Situated smack-dab in the Midlands of South Carolina, Columbia is the state capital and home of the University of South Carolina. A diverse community with a distinctive Southern flair, Columbia possesses a wide variety of dining options. From easy-going barbecue shacks to countless ethnic eateries, there is truly something for everyone. And don’t forget about the formidable fine-dining scene. Best bets? For something casual, stop off at a college pub, grab a handful of boiled peanuts and sink your teeth into a pimento cheese burger. Looking for something more upscale? Go downtown, pick out a trendy eatery and order a plate of locally sourced shrimp and grits. If you have room, seek out a big piece of bourbon cream pie.
