My wife had a small pizza with 4 toppings ($1 ea) and was very disappointed. The pizza was barely warm and not much in toppings. The banana peppers were 3 tiny strips for the whole small pie. Pizza had cheap stringy cheese and was not...More

We started going here because it's dog friendly, it's always a go to place. The pizzas are good but the omelets at brunch are tasty too. My favorite drink is the southbound greyhound, hubs loves the beer.

I had the chicken sandwich with a side of the homemade chips. What topped it for me was that the bartender asked if I wanted malt vinegar for the chips. Yes, please! Frosted pints as well!

Just a great package for lunch or brunch. Outside seating is always a favorite. Servers are always a plus and have never been disappointed with food or beverage. NOTE: Not sure what management is thinking with a Clemson home basketball game being televised.

Wonderful service. Food was wonderful and the serving sizes were huge. Atmosphere was fun and packed with Auburn fans. I will definitely visit again when in Columbia. A fun place with great menu selections.

Large family (10 adults, 4 children) get together over the Holidays. No available seating together inside (largest table seats 10), so the heaters were fired up and we were seated on the deck. Breezy (a wind barrier shade would have been MOST welcome), but the...More
