Although hard to find! Not clearly named we drove in circles. However lovely once inside. The restaurant was not too busy but it was cold inside. Food and service excellent. Food portions average but beautiful presentation. We left full but nothing left over. Tasted excellent but a bit pricey for more than a special occasion. We would definitely come back More

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.
