Very disappointed in the country fried steak, I have had better from Marie Callendars. I also gave a low rating because the menu said black eyed peas and they served crowder peas. Anyone from the south knows the difference. That being said, the peas and collards were good.

Very much enjoyed great southern food, like Grandma used to make! Had green beans, lima beans, collards, and cabbage. Delicious! And the prices are very inexpensive!

It's not Ruth Chris but it's as dependable as they come lots of vegetables and good ole southern cooking. One of the best meat and 3 places you'll find.

Great steady menu of home cooking favorites, meat & 2 or 3 veggies depending on how hungry you are, daily specials, great to-go service, kid's menu, salad options, and comfort foods, all with a southern flair. The waitstaff is always friendly and I never leave hungry. If you have room, their desserts are pretty good. For Thanksgiving I ordered a... More

Outstanding home style cooking like momma made it! The fried chicken is Southern. The veggies are like momma made. The mashed potatoes are "real!" I've never heard a bad word about this place, which I believe is family owned. The banana pudding was great! Prices are decent too, so bring the whole family because they appear family-oriented.

When Bob and Anna Tronco came to Columbia, Sc to open a restaurant, they were not fooling around. "The Thicket", names after a crossroads in Alabama, serves some of the best country cooking around, and they have been doing it for over 25 years. These family owned restaurants are very well know in these parts for their "Meat n' Threes"... More

We eat here often... Lots of choices, veggies, no longer loaded with sugar and fat....more heart healthy, if you stay away from the fried foods. Best to order the baked chicken breast during the lunch hour, as it is the freshest then. I do believe by dinner it is what is left over from lunch. Easy on the wallet... Service... More
