Just ate the vegetables. The waitress joined me for dessert. Which was great because that was the only part of the restaurant I... More

They have many types of Southern food, to even include "liver pudding"! It is a daily posted "meat & 3" plus a menu. Fried chicken livers and fried catfish are very good.

Nothing fancy about Lizards Thicket. Meat and three is what they offer, and it is southern country cooking. If you don't like that, don't eat here. The tea is cold and sweet. Many items are fried. The vegies are seasoned with meat. Good eats. I don't recommend either one of the squash dishes. Other than that, you're good to go.

Located off interstate 26, Lizard's Thicket us a great stop for good southern cooking! We were looking for something specific to Columbia during a layover stay. With approximately 14 locations in Columbia, Lizard's Thicket seemed like a no brainer! This is a full service seat yourself establishment. Upon walking in we were greeted and quickly tended to. Throughout the meal... More

I had to go to Columbia on business and was recommended to Lizard's Thicket. Best food I have ever had for a meat and three. A definite must!

Our experience couldn't be better. I ordered the southern fried chicken which was excellent. My husband had the beef stew which was also good. The service was great, with an abundance of food for the money. I will return again when we are in the area.

We stop by here on Garner's Ferry Road on our way to the beach to have a vegetable lunch and friendly service. There are so many choices of good southern style food you want to taste a little of everything. The fried chicken is particularly good here. Stephen is our favorite server, but all the servers are great. Sunday lunch... More
