Be prepared for a wait. But while you wait, enjoy locally brewed beer. Food never disappoints whether its appetizers, the main course, or dessert. Service is always good.

I have been to this restaurant a few times and there is always a long wait. The beer and food is worth the wait. On this visit I had a vegetarian hummus wrap with a side of pickled cucumbers. Both were outstanding. The Irish red beer is great. We always sit inside because the wait for outside tables is longer.... More

Long wait to sit out on the patio but the food was good. Pretzels with artichoke spinach dip, great drinks, and a portabella burger that is really good. One thing I did have that wasn't good was the "famous" grilled romaine salad, it was terrible. My romaine wasn't cleaned properly, so dirty it actually made mud on my plate. I... More

We used TripAdvisor to find a restaurant when we were passing through Columbia and came up with Flat Branch. We were definitely not disappointed! The beer was great, the staff was friendly and the artichoke dip in the bread bowl is some of the best we have ever had! The steak was good, but we've had better. We will go... More

This was not my first rodeo at flat branch. The IDPA I enjoyed complimented the pasta very well. Another great combo is their brown ale with meat loaf. Nobody in our group of 8 was disappointed. Great food and drinks with good prices and excellent service.

Not forgetting the home made root beer & cream soda. Good friendly service. Food is decent with a wide selection of pizzas, burgers, sandwiches, bar snacks & ribs. Great for hanging out with buddies especially... More

It was a Sunday night of Memorial Day weekend, and we did not have a long wait. We ate on the patio and it was so relaxing. The waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. The beer sampler is an amazing value. There were 6 of us, we all loved our food and would have gone back the next day if it... More
