While the entree selection was excellent, we went for the salad and pizza. They also have a good selection of beer. My husband had a Pale Ale and liked it. We had a pizza. The price reflects it is a small personal size. We had The Iberian pizza and the cheese was great with proscuttio. It was flavorful. You do... More

It's a great place to stop and get a beer and a snack or meal if you're visiting USC or the Statehouse because it's within walking distance of both! The beer is amazing and their food is even better! Definitely a place you should stop and try!

Seeking refuge from the monsoon also known as the Gamecocks/UGA game on September 13, we stopped in this delightful little brewpub, nestled on a corner location in downtown. They have a small selection of freshly brewed beer - we tried the Pale Ale, which was excellent. As an appetizer, we went for the hummus platter, which was excellent. The rest... More

Decided to go here for lunch. Tried the HG burger with smoked Gouda with a side of hash browns. The burger was juicy and very tasty. Seasoned well. The hash browns were cooked just the way I like them. Will be making a trip back to try out their dinner menu.

We got there at 8 pm on a Saturday night and the place was packed. We only had to wait 10 minutes for a seat for 5 of us. I had the duck and it was cooked perfect. The mussels appetizer was the best dish on the whole menu cooked in a light sauce with chiriso, celery, and garlic. Beer... More

Only a few blocks off the USC campus. The goat cheese salad was excellent. Good size portion, great flavor combinations. Really good pale ale on tap. The service was quick and pleasant.

Our family stopped in for lunch at Hunter after a visit to USC. They had only one waitress that was covering most of the restaurant. She was doing the best she could, but did create some slow service. I got the BLT which was just okay. I wish I would have tried some of their beers, they looked like they... More

Did a mid-week dinner here with coworkers traveling to Columbia on business. We shared the ESB Pimento cheese to start. Really good stuff. I did the lamb gyro, which was good. My companions did a pizza and a smoked chicken ravioli. The pizza was not the greatest but the pasta was quite good. I also had an in-house Pale &... More

Initially, my wife and kids were a bit concerned when we pulled up, but the food was fantastic. Don't pass this one up!
