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

Friendly service and great food always! Meat loaf is excellent. Creamed corn tastes like candy! Corn bread is just sweet enough. Catfish is excellent too! Try the sweet tea.

If you are someone who likes fried chicken and collard greens then this is the place for you. It is very homey in a southern home way. We like it.

My daughters are picky eaters, the loved the ham dinner with macaroni and cheese and apple sauce. I had the chef salad with baked chicken with French dressing and wafer crackers. Waitress was pleasant and kept our drinks full.

Southern fare served fresh daily. Its like eating in your grandmother's kitchen. Their famous salad with fried or baked chicken is a must. A hearty helping of fresh vegetables. They have one of the beat hamburger steaks with grilled onions in the Midlands. A true hometown gem!

What was not to like, the prices were great, and the food was very good, My wife is a Filipino and she really liked the food of this place. The food was very fresh tasting, unlike some where you can taste the salt, this had the flavor of the vegetables come thru, the fish I had was very good along... More

Here visiting family and ordered takeout. It was good not great. I had a salmon patty. Could not taste much salmon, lots of bread inside but was tasty. Black Eyed Peas were cooked well except a little salty. Fried okra a little overcooked and not very seasoned. Cornbread a little dry. Mac and cheese was pretty good. My husband liked... More

If you want a traditional southern meal, this is the place. They do the "meat & 3" or you can choose 2 vegetables if you prefer. They also have a good chef salad for those that eat healthy. If you splurge for dessert, get them to warm up a piece of their pecan pie! Yum!

The Thicket is a stand-by when you want solid food. They strive to serve fresh vegetables and a good choice of meats. Good cornbread and butter. We like their breakfast menu also. Good place to pick up food and take home.. Very reasonable prices and good quantity and quality.
