Great veggie soup

I especially like their vegetable soup and cornbread. They have it year round and it's consistently good. That's my favorite along with blackberry cobbler; I also like the fried chicken salad.

First time for supper at Lizard's Thicket. Amazing prices for real country home cooking. The corn bread are tasty, the staff very accommodating and so many choices. This LT was great, hopefully they are all the same. Everyone should try it at leapt once.

This is a southern style restaurant. The menu is on the wall. You select one meat and three vegetables. You may also select a dessert, if you are a big eater. But wait, there is also a printed menu on each table with all sorts of sandwiches and other less-regional dishes. But this is southern cooking at it's best. Our... More

Lizard's Thicket is well known in the South Carolina Midlands as a ("Hi Darlin'") popular " meat and three vegetable" restaurant. The food is good generally ("Hi Sugar") unless you get there between the lunch and dinner shifts. At that point, the food tends to have been sitting under lights and tastes like leftovers. The waitresses ("Hi Y'all") pour on... More

All your southern favorites are here at Lizard's Thicket. Fried Chicken, Beef Stew, Catfish, etc. cooked well and served promptly. Consistently good food at a good price. Servings are sufficient that you only leave hungry if you want to. This is a standard stop when we go out for a casual dinner. Don't dress up, but it won't break the... More

Have eaten in this restaurant a number of times in recent months with my partner. They always seem to assume that the man is paying the bill and leaving the tip and they come and ask me if everything is OK and whether I want a refill, but totally ignore my partner, who is often the one who is actually...

Visitng relatives in the area and they wanted to try LT. We had a variety of the menu and all of it was good for the price. I had the grilled chicken breast. It was over cooked and over salted. The black-eyed peas were bland, the candied yams were just ok and the potato salad was salty and under seasoned.... More
