Food was very good, service was pleasant and efficient, sweet tea was very good and wait staff kept glass full. Prices seemed a little high. All in all it was a great dining experience.

Love this restaurant. Everyone I have brought here has loved it. Mostly we have lunch but sometimes they have entertainment at night so we will go for dinner. Columbia downtown is so picturesque.

Wonderful soup and salad. I esp love the tomato bisque. I enjoy bringing out of town guests but don't come at noon. Come early or you won't get a seat. The staff is really nice.

When I want to have delicious lunch, I head to the Square Market. Delicious soups and sandwiches! Cute, quaint atmosphere, although it is a bit cramped. It's a good sign, though, that the place is always packed. There's a reason! Don't skip dessert!
