Southern style home cooking

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... read more

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

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

This is very good old timey Southern soul food that Southern natives of all races love! Very broad menu. A "meat & three" restaurant. If you have never had it as a breakfast meat, try their "liver pudding" well done along with grits and eggs. In cold months their spicey bean soup is very good. This is among our regular... More

My first visit was better than expected. The chicken fingers and fries were good. Next visit, terrible. The chicken fingers were chewy, fries not cooked, and the rolls were clearly our of a bag. The sweet tea is good, and staff friendly, but the food tastes like frozen food.

This was my first meal at this particular restaurant, though I’ve dined at other Lizard’s Thicket restaurants in the Columbia metro area. I ordered a classic southern meal -- country fried steak with mashed potatoes. It’s a pretty basic test of the regional cookery on which Lizard’s Thicket has built its reputation. Alas, I received a sub-par tasting meal consisting... More
