Best shrimp & grits. Server could have been a bit more accommodating; it was early & not busy. My online message to the restaurant mentioned we were there to celebrate a birthday; the hostess asked if we were celebrating anything....we said, a birthday. The server didn’t get the memo. More

Discover Columbia

Home to the SC Gamecocks, Columbia is a lively university town with dozens of festivals and an active foodie scene thanks to the large population of college students. If you want to dive right in and dine like a local, be sure to try a pimento cheeseburger, one of the most iconic dishes in the city. This spicy burger features multiple types of cheese, bacon, pimento peppers, and a unique sauce made from horseradish, pickle juice and mustard. Don't forget to try some South Carolina barbecue. Columbia is home to some of the best pulled pork, braised beef and ribs in the state, so saddle up to one of the city's many casual eateries and dig into some soul food.
