I have been to this restaurant many times over the years and feel I have a good grasp of the place. I went for lunch over the weekend with my husband and my brother's family. We were told a 15 minute wait and it turned out to be 30, but this is to be expected for Sunday brunch. You get the mixture of the church crowd and the just-rolled-out-of-bed crowd, so brunch is always busy in Columbia.
I ordered the salmon cakes and beheld a sad sight when they arrived at the table. They were served with grits, which covered the circular plate; the cakes were placed on the very edge of the place and a quarter-sized dollop of tasso ham gravy was i the middle of the pathetically white mass. Presentation was horrendous. The cakes were okay, although not well seasoned. However, the grits and gravy had a good bit of flavor that helped bring up the taste when eaten together. It was okay, but probably would not order again.
My husband's breakfast crossaint, on the other hand, looked delicious and he said, unlike my plate, its looks were not deceiving. I might get this instead next time.
The hash brown casserole is deliciously cheesy and the benedict dishes are pretty good, as long as you don't get a stale English muffin (which has happed to my party a few times in the past). Also, they do not have any kind of alcohol license, so no mimosas or bloody mary's, which are usually a must have for me when it comes to brunch.
You can also order from their extensive lunch menu, which has very good sandwiches and salads. Definitely try the pimento cheese!
