This was not my first time at the restaurant, but will definitely be my last. Although the wait staff was pretty good, the restaurant was absolutely dirty. Our table was skipped often with the most expensive cuts of meat. Seems we were limited to the basic cuts, while tables around us got the best. Alcoholic drink was too pricey for the size and watered down. Seems the restaurant has changed owners from my last visit, and it was not for the best. I have no problem paying for an experience, but the cost to eat at this establishment should be 1/3 the price. Save your coins and go somewhere else!

It was cool, but they tried to not give us the earlybird special. When I called them on it they went back and changed the bill, but still didnt give me the early bird special that they show on the website.

Food was amazing lots of variety. The service wasn’t great but I think had to do with the fact that our waiter was also the bartender.

In this time of a pandemic I was not comfortable with many guests walking around without masks. The management should be in control of the restaurant. The ambiance was cold and loud. The food was good and the service was great but I will not return or suggest to others.

Food was very tasty. I chose not to get anything from the salad bar but those at my table had a wide variety of great items. They say there's not an order as to what comes out but make sure you try everything.

Service and food was excellent. Happy to see that the restaurant was taking the social distancing precautions seriously. All servers and waiters wore masks/gloves. They even provided gloves to each diner for our protection as well as protecting other patrons. I would definitely come back.

For the first 30 minutes they were bring the meat every few minutes, after an hour they service just stopped. They serves walked by our table at least 10 times and didn’t even offer us the meat (our chips were on green they whole time) while offering it to the table behind us. We had to physically wave them over to let them know we weren’t interest, after three attempts we just stopped asked for our check and left.

The food, service and value are some of the best in Columbia. Their total disregard for customers entering without masks made it impossible for them to be masked at the salad bar. We will not be returning until the pandemic is over.

The salad bar was a complete joke. The website made it seem like there would be an expansive array of options on the salad bar. You can get better variety at Jason's Deli. None of the items on the bar were very good. The croutons were soft and soggy.

All of the meats were excellent and the ability to try a wide variety was nice, but for the price there was not enough of value.
