I've eaten here on every trip to Columbia - had something different each time and have NEVER been disappointed with the food.

I decided to have brunch for the first time here and was not disappointed. Me and my date arrived a little after 1pm. I was afraid there would be a long wait but we were seated within seconds of our arrival. I ordered the Shrimp and grits not really knowing what to expect. I'm use to getting that particular dish...

Took our daughter back to USC and stopped here for dinner while exploring the Vista. We sat in the back in the biergarten, which is indoors and very well lit and airy. The deviled-egg appetizer was delicious and my steak was perfectly cooked and juicy. Service was prompt and the patrons were a nice mix of young and older. Didn't... More

It's a shame that the service wasn't better because the food was decent. Our server seemed lost and several servers couldn't find the owners of the food they ordered. Not what we had expected based on the good reviews I read.

Food was delicious - my daughter had meatloaf and mashed potatoes that she enjoyed very much; I had a cheeseburger and fries that was cooked to order; servings were generous; service was very good; great selection of beers on tap and bottled

I went here with friends while I was visiting. We have been to a few brunch places but this was one of the less fancy yet equally amazing ones we visited. I loved the Lincoln hash, and I can say it truly did cure my hangover. They also serve very yummy mini blueberry muffins as you wait and their shrimp... More

My son and I attended freshman orientation at University of South Carolina in late June, early July. We watched one of the World Cup soccer matches while seated in the bar area. It was a very convivial atmosphere and would be appropriate for a date night, hanging out with friends or a family dinner. We both had salads which were... More

Because this restaurant is so close to my usual hotel in Columbia, I eat here almost every trip. I love the Shea Crab Soup, but it can be a little inconsistent. I also really enjoy the Asian Tuna Sandwich.
