Good food and service. Ambiance was nice. I highly recommend.
The overall experience was good at Motor Supply. We ordered our appetizer and entrees at the same time. We waited for what seemed like an excessive amount of time for our entrees. When our food came out the proteins were cold while the sides were hot. The food was sent back and warmed up but this unfortunately affected our experience. The food was not worth the price based on our experience.
Delicious duck duo and Wadmalaw Island shrimp and grits!
Outstanding food. We will come back. Definitely a go to place if in the area
Very warm and welcoming and food was amazing. Don’t be too
Late for brunch they were out of a couple items but overall it was amazing and will go back.
Duck duo was incredible! Fantastic selection of signature cocktails and canned/bottled beers.
Awesome, Awesome Experience. Friendly, accommodating and great food.
Well, we'd just come up from Charleston where we had been indulging the myriad of options available; this place was not a disappointment but slightly a step down from the previous couple of dinners. Everything very good, no reason to eat elsewhere (at least from my research - I don't live here). And why wouldn't anyone at least consider dining at a place named Motor Supply Company Bistro?
This was a superb, joyful discovery in downtown Columbia. I was here on business and met an old friend for dinner. We were both delighted by the service and the quite superb food and interesting menu. It is also very reasonably priced for what it is. I am sure it is the best place to eat in Columbia.
Great food, great atmosphere, great service. Lovely old building adds to the ambiance.
Food was very good, service wonderful. We came in for an early lunch and were very happy with the entire dining experience.
Went in last night for dinner after a movie. They were totally out of white wine. After about ten minutes a band started sound testing. Really loud and annoying for dinner conversation, so I asked if the noise could be lowered to which I was told, “it’s about to get a lot louder”. Really? We should have been informed that a band was about to start and it would be too loud to hear each other at dinner.. not to mention it wasn’t music but 30 minutes of “check” and loud screeching noises. Server was fine, Food is not bad, but rude staff and bad vibe..
We believe you are mistaken and are reviewing a different restaurant. We do not have live music or bands. We certainly didn't run out of white wine either. Please correct this on your end. Thank you, Motor Supply Co Bistro
The brunch was cold, but burned and very salty. The service was exceptional.
Great menu, service, and atmosphere! Convenient on-site parking, too.
Family lunch before we scatter for the holidays. One of our fav restaurant restaurants. Never disappoints.
As always, exemplary service of delicious and creative dishes in a lovely environment.
Service was disinterested. They seemed tired and bored. Potions were shockingly small. On a brunch platter of eggs, grits any a biscuit, there was more visible plate than food. I'll never return.
Unfortunately it was underwhelming. Some of the apps were good, but from our party of four no one was impressed with their entree. For reference we ordered cocktails, apps, entrees, wine, and desserts and we left feeling underwhelmed. Maybe it was an off night though, because the restaurant was full.
Motor Supply never disappoints. Our go-to for an outstanding dinner. To make the night even more special, our favorite server, Stephanie, has returned! Yay!!!
I have eaten at MSC Bistro several times and enjoyed the meal. This time it was sub par. I ordered a beet salad and the strip steak. The steak was the most expensive item on the menu, however, the steak was cut thin and tough. The flavor was suitable but you needed to chew small small pieces in order to swallow. My husband finished my steak, but I should have sent it back. The side vegetables were hard and under cooked as well. Beet salad was fair.
We really enjoyed dinner and service at Motor Supply.
Motor Supply is, hands down, the best restaurant in Columbia. The menu is amazing, wine list is extensive and their cocktails are amazing! Our server was Stephanie and she was so attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. If you have never eaten at Motor Supply, you are missing out!
We so enjoy office lunch meetings here, the ever evolving menu means a new chance to taste something new without any disappointment!
The food is fantastic here! We have never had anything less than an amazing meal at Motor Supply!
Amazing food and the simple man was delicious! Highly recommend to just get away from it all.
Another great Sunday brunch at Motor Supply. The menu is different each time and is always interesting.
My favorite restaurant in the country
Food was fantastic! Service was super slow. Waited too long for cocktails
Excellent food and consistently good service
The food was amazing and the service was great too! The portions are a bit small but still the value is good because it tastes so yummy that you leave very satisfied. Will definitely be back whenever we visit our son at U of SC!
Excellent service and ambiance!! Amazing food. The New York strip was pricey ($45) but had wonderful flavor. Duck gumbo was also amazing. Our waitress was knowledgable, attentive and gave us wonderful descriptions of the entrees. Great recommendations. A memorable meal and dining experience! We will be back!
We found this gem while traveling from the coast back to the mountains and used it as our halfway point, and it was quite the find. We were greeted at the entrance with complimentary valet parking, and then we were seated in less than a minute with our reservation. We ordered the blackened catfish, which was seasoned perfectly and served with local red rice. We also had the brioche French toast and creamy scrambled eggs. A mimosa and excellent gin cocktail rounded out the meal. The service was on point, and the setting was intimate and relaxing. We will definitely make this our go-to when in Columbia.
Good atmosphere, great brunch food, and good drinks. Recommend!
Great service and food.
Another great meal. Both the Red Fish and Lamb entrees were outstanding. The salted chocolate peanut butter bar dessert is awesome.
One of our favorite dining spots in Columbia. We try to dine here whenever we come to town. Locally-influenced menu, enticing specials, nice wine list, and great service.
We always love Motor Supply when we are in Columbia. Las night the food was great.
Motor Supply is my favorite Columbia restaurant and never, ever disappoints. We met our Granddaughter (a sophomore at UofSC) for a dinner treat and that it was. It’s wonderful to have such fine dining in our own backyard!
