Motor Supply Company Bistro
I was fortunate to bring two "first timers" to Motor Supply to celebrate Boss's Day. They were absolutely blown away. I requested my favorite waitress, Stephanie, and she was cheerful, professional, and informative to my guests. We all had the oyster salad and the redfish entree. I think the redfish was the best fish I've ever had a MSC and I hope it becomes a staple on the menu. The sausage and okra sauce gave it just enough spice without overwhelming the fish. Magnificent!!! One guest had her first creme brûlée and I think she practically licked the dish. Thanks Stephanie and MSC for always coming through for an excellent meal and dining experience. I consider myself a "regular" and absolutely can't wait to come back!
Motor Supply Co is our go-to place when we pass through Columbia, SC. This was our fourth visit and as each previous visit it was excellent. Their menu changes daily and is very interesting. I started with a roasted vegetable salad that was warm and tasty. My husband chose the potato leek soup which he enjoyed immensely. We both had the crispy duck entree served with farro and carrots. I probably would not have picked farro if it had been a menu which has you choose sides. But it was delicious with the duck. They have an extensive and interesting wine list. Our waiter was very formal at first until he learned that he could joke with us. He took good care of us. All wait staff pitch in to be sure that meals are delivered from the kitchen the minute they are ready. I always appreciate this type of service. I would highly recommend Motor Supply Co Bistro.
Alice was awesome, food was above average
Every dish we ordered was a winner! Each item was exactly as described.
Usually Motor Supply is the BEST! That night:::duck was wayyyyyy too salty. The sauce on the tuna was also too salty!
Our group of 6 all thought the food excellent and the dessert choice improved.
Motor Supply had an extremely nice ambiance and great service, but the food left a little to be desired. I had the duck thigh, and my girlfriend had the cobia, and neither of us were overly impressed by our meals. The flavors were nice and the food was cooked well, but were overly salty and greasy. I am glad we finally made it to Motor Supply, and it was a super nice environment for a date night, but I don't know that we'll be going back.
Night club booming sound was very annoying among with large table of very loud patrons
Motor Supply is a great restaurant and bar for business meals, dates, or just friends getting together. I was seated on the porch on this last visit, and it was very comfortable, busy with dining activity, but still quiet. Food choices and preparation was fantastic, Salads, Oysters, Grouper special and steak specials were all cooked to perfection and very high quality. The drink menu is always creative, seasonal, and made with the freshest ingredients by an expert mixologist. We even had a perfect dessert cocktail with a flan and creme brule. The wine list is as affordable or pretentious as you want for the occasion. Wine by the glass is great quality, and the list covers any style to quaff or pair with food.
Service was excellent. Good suggestions and around just enough to service the table. A class act all the way around!
Dinner before the concert. A very enjoyable experience.
Great food. However the restaurant was freezing.
This was wonderful. It's my favorite restaurant, but I've been living in Memphis and it's been a long time since I could go. Did not disappoint!
We enjoyed the food and wine. Nice space a d good service. Good choice for parents visiting U of SC
Great food and atmosphere, always a little noisy
Great food and environment... Motor Supply is my go to when I want to expose out of town business partners to our great cities food culture
Very good meal on a Sunday night.... reasonable prices and excellent food....I loved the scallops and my wife enjoyed her steak....the peanut butter chocolate dessert was nice to top things off!
Food and service was excellent. Hostess very nice and everything very clean. Food was excellent.
Wonderful meal- will definitely be back next time we are in Columbia!
Took my Daughter, a junior at USC out to dinner while visiting her from Virginia for Parents weekend!
We had an awesome meal and an awesome meal.
We both had the snapper and almost licked our plates clean. So delicious!!
Amazing food, everything tasted great! Everything comes out in a timely manner and the cocktails were delicious.
Motor Supply was the perfect place to celebrate our 6th anniversary. Everything from the cocktails to the food was delicious and unique. Our server Alice was extremely kind, timely, and knowledgeable about everything. Wonderful experience! Can’t wait to go back.
Everything about the dining experience was exceptional. The service, food, drinks and value. Although we were there for an “occasion”, it will now be on our rotation of regular dining out.
All fresh daily
Great food and lovely atmosphere
We loved the food at Motor Supply. We were there on a busy Friday night and luckily had reservations. Entrees(duck, steak and halibut) were all delicious. We really liked the mussels just wish it automatically came with bread or crostini but our server was very accommodating and brought us some when asked. Service was attentive but did not hurry us out. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
Very nice atmosphere and menu and service. The food would have been better with less salt.
Motor supply Company: Simply the beat in Columbia.
Great lunch place with a great menu and locally sourced food
Food and the atmosphere was great as always. We sat in the bar and had dinner. The Bartenders are professional and personable. Good for the lone business person travelling by themselves. The rest of the restaurant was very busy and all seemed to be having a good time.
Service was great and the food always is terrific. The sign at the street should be more visible though.
Amazing chicken thighs like what was that purée!!!!
The dinner was superb, service was outstanding!
Always a great time. Food is creative yet well thought out. Will be back soon.
It’s everything great! My husband ordered the aged steak which came out to perfection, portion size, taste and temp. I ordered the snapper. It was cooked and prepared to perfection, and not over seasoned. Our server Alice took great care of us with frequent visits to our table. To finish the dinner we split the cream brûlée, which had a good sugar crust torched on the top. I
Food was a bit too salty in general, but I guess it’s pretty norm around here.
We celebrated our anniversary at Motor Supply with a delicious dinner, wine, and desserts!!! It was the perfect night!
Teriffic food and the staff was on point. Wonderful evening
Excellent food, terrific service and just all around a great experience. Probably the best cosmopolitan I’ve ever had. We will definitely go back.
Had a very nice dinner. The pork chop was incredible and several of my guests really enjoyed the snapper.
I love the taste of the food but every time my family has eaten here, we all have stomach problems afterwards. My son and I both had the grouper for our entree. We had the cheese board, roasted beets, and oysters as appetizers. Our server was “ok” but could have been more attentive. “We discontinued the bread service” with no other options offered. I asked for a side to go with our cheese board and he said “maybe”. 4th time there in 4 months and will probably be my last.
