“Family Favorite for Breakfast”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Lizard's Thicket has been around as long as I can remember. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Our family only goes for breakfast because 3 out of 4 of us do not prefer their classic southern lunch and dinners. That is not to say they are not good, but rather that we prefer to eat lunch and dinner elsewhere. I have had lunch and dinner there before and it was good. Most people rave about it.

Breakfast - They have it all! My husband gets the western omelet, cubes hash browns, and toast. I get the French Toast - some of the best I have ever tasted and made with Texas Toast. My daughter gets a Belgian Waffle, and my son gets a Mickey Mouse pancake (not on the menu, but they will fix it if you ask.) They also serve all kinds of meat, fish, etc. for breakfast if you like that kind of stuff.

Service - The service is great when we go, which is usually early on a weekend morning (b/w 6-7 am.) There is hardly anyone there and the waitresses are great. The two waitresses in the section we always sit in even remember our orders. :) Everything is served fast and refills usually arrive before you even have to ask for one.

Nothing negative to say about this great locally owned restaurant.

On my way to business meeting in Myrtle Beach. Stopped into the Thicket in Columbia. Haven't eaten here in a long time. Excellent fried chicken and Mac and cheese!!! Great sweet tea too!

“Taste of Southern Cooking”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Asked the front desk at our hotel for a place with good local cooking. We were not disappointed. We walked in at 8:30 pm they close at 9 which we did not realize until we sat down. We were not rushed. The country fried steak and fried chicken was great. The sides were good I was a little disappointed in the fried apples. Service was very good and the waitress helped us with our choices we had a lot of questions. I realized I had been at this restaurant quite a few years back and loved it. Will stop here again on our next trip to Florida.
