Good Food & Service

Had a quick meal on the deck prior to a basketball game and it was a good time. Definately recommend this place if you are attending an event at the Colonial life Arena.

We ate here before touring USC. We read the reviews on tripadvisor and decided to try it. Parking was easy in the lot, the covered patio was perfect. My daughter and husband had the Italian cold cut, my son had a 1/2 pound burger, and I had a grilled cheese with tomato. Everything was fresh and the portions were huge.... More

Had never been but always heard it was good and it was true. I had the chicken fingers and the portion was large but they were so good I couldn't stop eating them. My boss had a salad that looked great and he kept saying how good it was. Everyone around us ordered the pizza and it looked very good.

Good restaurant near USC campus. Good food but not a bunch of seating so be early for seating and parking. Outside dining as well.

We are always looking for some new place to eat in Columbia and some how never found this place until last weekend. There was an event going on in the field next to the restaurant so the bar was chocked full of college kids. But there were also families with young kids. Everyone was happy and having a good time...

The last time I ate their the salad with fried goat cheese and pear was delicious... but the time before that my sweet potato fries were quite greasy, not crisp and... More

We went on a cold, rainy day, so I had the Cheeseburger soup, which was tasty. My daughter had the chicken sandwich, which I tasted, and this was yummy to. The food was fresh, hot, and the Sweet Potatoe fries, with dip were the best I have ever tasted. Also our waiter, Ramsey was great.
