While visiting Columbia SC, had a great lunch at The Flying Saucer Draft House. Really good service and the food was delicious. Hopefully I will be able to visit a few of their other franchise sites here in Texas.

We stopped in for a drink before going to a concert where our server, Caroline took such good care of us, we returned after the show was over for another drink and appetizers. The Bavarian pretzels were amazing! We also enjoyed the live music.
