I really don't like places that don't take reservations. We haunted the bar and got seats pretty quickly, but the bar is huge and only 2 or 3 people are working it. We ate dinner and had 1 beer in an hour. No chance to get a second beer, out of a couple of the beers. We ended up leaving.... More

Recommended by hotel receptionist as a great place to get local , craft beer. We did not really expect great beer AND great pizza, but that us what we got the beer is creative and interesting. The margarita pizza was out standing. Gray place.

Flat Branch is my wife favorite restaurant, so I have had a chance to taste many items on their menu. The pork fritter was a new item and it, once again, did not disappoint!

Flat branch is probably the busiest restaurant in Columbia. Anytime I have to wait a long time for a table I wonder why so many people love it. The food is good and always consistent. Service can be slow but they are very busy. Always friendly people there. I think their are better meals in Columbia but I always do... More

I absolutely love Flat Branch! Their pretzel appetizers with mustard dipping sauce is to die for. This is one of the only restaurants I will eat meatloaf at & their horseradish sauce is delicious.

Looking for a great place to relax for a casual business meal or someplace for date-night with that special someone, then Flat Branch may be the place for you. It's a little noisy most of the time, but that adds to the social atmosphere. Although it has a bit of Pub Bar ambiance, there are lots of families that go... More

We visited on a Saturday night and wanted an outside table. Surprisingly there was only about a 7 minute wait. I had the hobgobbler turkey sandwich. It was very good but mostly bread so I picked out the center portion. The fries were amazing as usual. We also shared a beer sampler with six varieties. That was a good way... More

When we travel we normally just stop to eat at a chain restaurant or something along the interstate or main highway. On this trip we have been using our AAA travel guide and TripAdvisor app to find eateries. This was the case with "Flat Branch" located down town, plenty of parking along the street and seating inside and out and... More

Went here for dinner on Friday night. The place was noisy but that was to be expected. We were able to find a parking space very close. The food was very good. We ordered an appetizer of hush puppies which were huge and had a good spicy flavor top them. My catfish and chips was also good, the fries were... More
