Great food, friendly people
Staff good nice manager and food good I will tell friends about place one my friends I go play cards here staff will nice to us
Good home style food and wonderful waitresses
Food dried out, tough not worth the price
We love this place! Great place for lunch or dinner when passing thru the area!
I ordered a fried chicken salad. The lettuce was fresh but the serving size was very small with minimal fried chicken (maybe 5 tiny kitten size bites). There were no other vegetables except a hint of carrot for color . The chicken was dry and filled with gristle. The salads there in general need to improve dramatically by adding fresh local vegetables for those of us who prefer healthier options. As for the fried chicken on top, what a disappointment!
Great Food friendly people...
Grilled cheese done right!
Because it has good food and good service and the people are polite
Like the variety of food options. Very good food. Fast service.
The food was wayyy better than I thought. They gave us healthy portions. That was a plus for me because I love to eat. Everyone here was so friendly. I will be returning.
Looked around for somewhere to eat on Thanksgiving Day since we were traveling away from home. Someone suggested we give Lizard’s Thicket a try over Shoney’s or Denny’s. This was a great meal and reasonably priced. We didn’t leave disappointed.
Lunch was good, went through drive thru , meat loaf and mash potatoes and gravy and squash casserole and spinach, rolls
The food was cold. The service was good.
Always great food. Good pricing! Service is always nice. Highly recommended!
The food was good. The staff was friendly. The restaurant was clean and so was the bathroom. Great place to get a home cooked meal.
Fantastic food but service was lacking today.
Good service. Good cooking today
Large portions. Most of the food was hot, however, a couple of the items could have been warmer. Great service by our server, Crystal. Next time we drive through Columbia, we will stop again.
Good food and great service. Get your money worth.
Oooooook. This was the best chicken I ever had. End of review. But no seriously, I came to get some low carb/high protein meal and ordered 2x the 6oz chicken with vegetables. Chicken on it's own has never tasted this good. The food was so dense and tasty we barely finished it. Really good price too, only paid $17 for both meals I had.
We were able to purchase a meal with no additives and cooked with minimal oils which is good. They use natural seasonings such as bacon , fat back or butter. This is a healthier meal and the staff was so helpful answering questions about how the meal was prepared. Thank you guys!
First experience at a lizards thicket and ohhh my goshhh it is to die for! I'm from up North and have never experienced such delicious food for such a great price
Disgusting food. Chewy potatoes, clumpy grits and cold everything. Didn't know it was possible to underseason and overseason something at the same time but apparently so. Bathroom is filthy.
Love their 1 meat 3 veggie & reasonable prices
Ate with my grandmother's church people. Took a while to get drink and food orders. Even longer to get checks so we can leave. But waitress was polite and food was great
Great food, great service!
This is another once a week lunch stop for my coworkers and I. Wait staff is very friendly and the food is consistently good. Waitress Kim is amazing. We purposely sit in her section every trip. Super friendly, very attentive, she is the definition of what customer service should be!
Love stopping by the Lizard's Thicket for lunch when we come to Columbia!! Food is always great and pleasant staff and environment!!
Always good food and friendly service.
Dark meat chicken in the chicken tenders?? Really? Hardees next door has better. Other things were good.
The drive thru was slow. The food was hot and tasted fresh.
The food was delicious and waitress was very nice.
Loved the veggies today. Kale salad, carrot raisin salad and squash casserole we're delish! Always love eating here when I pass through Columbia. Been eating at Lizard's Thicket 40 years. Never disappointed.
My server was Holly and she was adorable and very fast .. The food was great and the atmosphere was good. Definitely will be returning.
I think it's a great place to get a good home cook meal that is great taste
Small portions. They changed the plate size and thought no one would notice - WRONG!!! Staff is wonderful, food is good, too many bean counters in management. They shot themselves in the foot on this one.
Needs to work on hand washing skills. Got up and left. Saw a server pick up ice off the floor and then continued to handle food. Unacceptable !!!!
Cold food! Order wrong! Manger was a completely disrespectful. The reason the pick up time was late because I was sitting in line waiting to get my food. Was told If you get a call in order they box it and just sit it on the counter under nothing to keep it warm! Sounds very nasty to me. Also something about the cats that roam around the parking lot should be done. NEVER will I eat here again
Loved my waitress Vanessa
Have been here four times hoping the food would get better. It's still just okay. Very salty veggies with no other seasoning than maybe some pepper. Nothing is very flavorful.
The food is good. I frequent the establishment. There are time the food taste better but most of the time it is tasty. The window service is also inconsistent for good service. Like much of SC.
Their food is always on point. The wait staff is friendly and provides excellent service.
We love Lizard Thicket. We normally go to the one on Forest Drive. But we decided to come here since it's closer to our home, but the service was not good. Our breakfast was delivered to our table with slightly warmed grits with cheese. The grits couldn't even melt the cheese. Told our server, she took our plates back and someone microwave the plates and brought it back to us the same way we sent it. They put fried flounder in the microwave and brought it to us mushy and greasy! I was EXTREMELY disappointed with this particular Lizard Thicket!
Wasn't seasoned to my taste
A great restaurant down home country cooking.
I had heard of Lizard's Thicket, but I don't go to Columbia often, so I have not had the chance to try it. The food is very good, there are lots of options, the portions are filling and it is reasonably priced. If you are looking for home-style cooking, this is the place to go.
The food was good and service was fast.
They always give a bone to my dogs
Nice place to visit with family, and have a good meal.
We brought 3 toddlers to eat with us and our waitress was incredibly helpful. She brought them booster seats right away, water in to-go cups, coloring pages, and she brought them animal crackers when they were done eating. Any parents of small children knows it can be challenging to go out to eat, but Lizards Thicket is always so accommodating. The food was delicious, as always. The collards, mac and cheese, and fried chicken are out of this world. Great food,great staff!
Great food, great service, pleasant staff.
Very good service and food, very short waiting period between ordering and having it in front of you!
I never been disappointed with this place, but this is my first time going on a Sunday. So I'm hoping the food wasn't tasty, the cornbread was burnt, and the drive thru wait being over 15 minutes, was because of the crowd. But still, they need to do better!! The drive thru cashier was a sweetheart though!
Service was very good and our female waitress couldn't have been more nice. I gave 3 stars because I have never dined with you but was told how GREAT the food was. I was ultimately wanting lunch but arrived a little too early so I tried the breakfast. On the menu the biscuits and gravy looked so appetizing in the picture and it made my stomach growl even more loud when I initially saw the picture. So I ordered with a side of 2 scrambled eggs and honestly couldnt wait to try it. While we waited the server was very attentive to our table and kept our drinks full which is number 1 in my book especially if there isn't anything like an appetizer or anything ordered and she continuously checked on us but not too much. Our food arrived at the table and honestly what I saw in her hands was something I thought was meant for another table. Very quickly I realized this was the biscuits and gravy I ordered and I couldnt believe my eyes when the gravy looked like some weird over floured gelatin type gravy. The one huge GLOB OF GRAVY jiggled as one big scoop as the plate was sat on the table. The sausage pieces that were supposed to be an even blend in the gravy looked like something that came out in pieces from someone's back end. I couldnt believe that this is what was pictured in the menu. Its partially my fault I was to worried to say anything as I didn't want to anger the kitchen or the server and tried to shovel it down as I was extremely hungry. Thank goodness the biscuits were good as I found myself scraping off the sauce and trying to piece together the bits of sausage to make a sausage biscuit. Other than that the experience was good but putting generic pictures in your menu that doesn't represent your product at all was appalling to me. I do want to give your lunch and dinner a try and hope that it's not the same experience. 3 stars for great service the servers were all very nice and were truly amazing in the dining room, the pictures however for the menu need to be updated. It's just not right!!!
Awesome food great service
This is one of best home cooking restaurants I've ever ate at. It rivals Cracker Barrel. We ordered BlackBerry cobbler and, oh my, you would've thought granny had been cooking all day!! Went both nights we were there. Staff was friendly and prices were great!
Today the chicken was overcooked and the collards weren't cooked enough. Mashed potatoes and gravy was good. Service was good.
Decent food for the price.
Friendly atmosphere and good home cooked meal.
Ok, great food, nice atmosphere.
Home style cooking , really good food we eat there everytime we are in Columbia, also very affordable
Good selection of food .Customer service was good meal came out in a timely manner reasonable price also
This particular restaurant has gone down hill over the last month. The waitresses are great, but the food has been terrible. Long waits for food to be served after ordering. Sides are often cold. Nothing worse than cold mashed potatoes! I understand they've possibly had problems with keeping or hiring good cooks which makes sense per the bad food. Hate to quit going here because the waitresses are like family, but until they get their food and cook issue straightened out, we won't be going back. 5 stars for waitresses. 1 star for food.
The service was wonderful and the food was great. They serve southern comfort food yum yum.
Always a great place to go
Went there Sunday 3/24/19. The service was terrible. All of my food was not in container (which I should have checked it before I left). I called back and was placed on hold for over 10mins. The young lady was very rude and told "hun we're very busy today" this was after O asked to speak with the manager. The manager obviously didn't have control over his staff who was too busy taking care of family members. One young lady left the drive thru to talk to her family who came to pick up an order. Another young lady stopped assisting customers to greet her children and mother. Several of them was preoccupied with nonsense. I watched them get a lady order wrong and the lady left; which I'm sure she came back because her order was missing some food.. the manager wasn't much help and seemed to want to defend the actions of the staff. After being on hold and speaking the rude young lady she hung up in my face... I've been going to this Lizard's thicket since they opened and I've NEVER encountered disrespect like this.
Oh my! What an epic fail. A simple order of a chicken breast with Mac and cheese and fried okra turned out to be less than a meal. The chicken and okra looked as though they were prepared in old 20W50 motor oil. The only thing I ended up eating was the Mac and cheese. Hope they improve as I used to like the food there.
Service was good, we had a great waitress and the food was delicious. The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is because the food was not hot enough, it tasted very good and the portion size was just right.
Wifes fried chicken was a little dry. Other than that every thing was great as always. Would recommend to anyone.
Great food and smiling faces!
Only complaint was there was a long line. Lol. But no problem at all. That is soooo uncommon today. Smh
If you're visiting South Carolina you must eat at Lizard's thicket. Authentic Southern food and friendly staff!
I love it great tasting food
Sign said seat yourself, but all available tables were dirty. Advised staff but they didn't seem interested in our business. Waited a while and decided to go somewhere else. Service stinks!
Good food nice atmosphere employees were nice and polite
I was really excited by the variety on the menu although I was not impressed by anything once it hit my mouth It wasn't horrible but it didn't stand up to what I was looking for. The staff was amazing and the restaurant was cute.
The first two times I went was great but after that it wasn't good. The fish tastes fishy and unseasoned.
Good food. Reasonable prices. Wonderful staff. We were there with a group for breakfast. They gladly accommodated us and moved tables so we were all together. (ten of us). If you want good southern hospitality and food. Don't miss this one !
It was pretty good food. Never had mustard based bbq sauce before so that was different! The bbq chicken was good and the fried okra was good too. Had banana pudding for dessert and it was good as well. Not a bad place to get some home cooked meals and not too expensive.
I came in about ten minutes ago to pick up my lunch. I didnt get the ranch i asked for and the meat was white meat i asked for dark. I am not very happy cause my lunch break isnt long enough to run back. Eww
Great southern cooking! We really enjoy eating here when we are in town. The food is great and the service excellent!
Food was not great, but the service was awesome
Good food. Specials run out a lot of times by 7pm so order ahead if you really want something like roast beef. Dessert size pretty small for the amount you pay. Very southern style food. Fried everything available!
The Food Comes Right out of a #10 Can 1st time eating there and had diarrhea for 4 days. Server was great though.
Good service. I meet there regularly for business meetings and dinners. You should drop in when in the area; servers are very courteous, and the cook is great. Anything not made to order or expectation; you do have the option of having it remade. Good job Garner's Ferry Lizard Thicket. See you again next time!!!
I ALWAYS get the Cheesburger with a side of fries and baked apples. They get it right everytime.
We had a great meeting in the private dining room. The staff was really good to us. We were a little rude when we did not leave at closing time but they were nice to us anyway. We plan to visit a lot more often but we will not be so rude next time. Thank you so much for your wonderful treatment!
Great service n got there in time for restaurant week n all desserts were .99
My wife and I love eating here they have great food and good service
Good local cooking.
The Mac and cheese where cold. The fish was right out of the grease hot.
Nice service was nice and kind and the food was great
Happy the food and service was great appreciated the professional service
Good food. Very fair prices. Friendly staff. AND GOOD FOOD.
Been going there for over 20 yrs..nuff said..
A good meat and three. Many choices and the food was good. I expect if I'm in the area again I might eat here again. A much better choice than fast food.
Father's Day outing with Dad resulted in us visiting one of his favorite restaurants! The service was friendly and the food FABULOUSLY delicious!
Love the food!
This place was soo good! Loved it!
Good food and waitres!
Great Food & Great Service
Always love stopping here for their fried chicken.
Food was horrible no flavor among other things
OMG it was delicious never tried the Cubed Steak but I did today and I Loved It and also the Cream
First timer at Lizards Thicket. I had no idea what to expect, but I was not disappointed. I brought my family and the menu is huge with plenty of options for everyone. Service was exceptional, and the food was delicious. Definite 5 star eatery.
The food was great the first time and the. Second with my leftovers.
Waitress didn't give eating utensils. Cabbage, Lima beans, and steak had no favor. The bathroom was very very nasty!
I went in where we normally use the drive thru and asked for the manager. I explained to him about the problem with our previous order and the totally unprofessional and disrespectful phone conversation I had with another manager right after my last visit. He listened to me and told me he would make it right. He too my order and soon after came back with it ready to go. He wouldn't even let me pay for the desserts I had ordered and said all he wanted was happy customers and my business.
New to the area i stopped by to try them out. Here is my 1st time experience . The service of the drive through was slow and there was no one ahead of me and after waiting so long to place my order which was for corn muffins and 2 baked thighs. I get home and get the chicken out only to find I had 2 pieces of old fried chicken thighs. I was so mad I thought to take it back then I begin to laugh at myself for even going there and waiting in line that London to get a messed up order. I should have left after waiting the first 5 minutes. I'll Never Go there again.
Delicious food. You won't leave hungry!
Good comfort foods
Lizard's Thicket is fantastic every time we go. Excellent food for what you are paying. We take people there whenever they come into town.
Good Food some waitress forgetfullness!
Vanessa our waitress couldn't have been more attentive! She exceeded our needs, kept our cups full and was very sweet! The food was delicious too! Wednesday's meatloaf is superb!
The food id very good, great service, excellent atmosphere. Food tast like in home cooking. If u havent u must try it.
Good food and good service
My family and I always enjoy eating meals at Lizards Thicket. We frequent this restaurant often because it is affordable and the food is very tasty. For a family of five, it gives us the opportunity to eat out as a family. As a mother, I'm very appreciative for that.
Stopped in for lunch, tried the fried chicken and would definitely recommend eating this while your there, stop in, get your food on!
Didn't hate. However ordered ham omelet.no cheese got a ham n cheese omelet. It was very easy order not waitresses fault cooks
Very good home cooking and friendly service
Food is always pretty good. The only thing is, you don't get as much anymore for your money and the light skinned/ mixed girl behind the counter isn't to customer friendly. Other than that, it was ok
Great Southern food and great service!
Food is expensive..you dont get alot..not enough seafood selection..not everyone eats meat
Good diner style food with good options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Fast and home style cooking
Food was good & warm except for the corn. There was a long line for the drive thru. The car in front of me left after 5+ minutes trying to place an order. It took about 5 minutes after placing my order to get to the window to pay...then it took about 6 minutes after paying to get my food
Friendly staff and good food
Very good every visit!
Stopped because of the name. Food was really good. Would have given a 5 but bathrooms were dirty.
I go to many places for my bosses for breakfast and lunch. I go to this Garners Ferry Lizards thicket at least 6-8 times a week. Lizards thicket itself has an amazing menu. What makes this the best one around is the staff. They were amazing , friendly, and efficient. The cooks always do a great job and never had a problem with what I ordered. The ladies there are just awesome to be around and make my breakfast and lunch experiences absolutely amazing!! A place can be great but service could ruin it. Not an issue here they have both!! Thank you ladies for always making me smile!
Great friendly service, one of the better places around to get country style cooking for reasonable prices.
Great food and nice environment
Good staff and always quality food
Great food and amazing service!
Good food, fast service and reasonable prices!
Meals prepared as ordered. Well worth the price.
Great food for good price. Not too much seasoning and not too less. It’s generic soul food in its most professional sense. If you want that soul food that granny cooked with grease and too much seasoning go to another place. This place has great servers, a clean environment, quiet atmosphere and professional service.
Man food was great workers were nice and friendly. Everyone seem to enjoy there food as well they were busy and yes we will be back to eat again. Good food good people now let's eat!
Got take out order. Quick, correct and hot!
This is some of the BEST country cooking in SC!!!!! We always enjoy our meals here and the serve is ALWAYS AWESOME, too! Vanessa was our server and she was so professional and knowledgeable!!!!! She delivered FANTASTIC service with a smile!!!!! She was very friendly and personable!!!!! We really enjoyed meeting her!!!!! We will look for her on our return visits!!!! The dessert menu here is a MUST!!!!! You MUST have some after your meal!!!!! THANK YOU LIZARD'S THICKET FOR ALWAYS DELIVERING EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICE!!!!! We look forward to our next visit to COLUMBIA, SC because we always have to stop at Lizard's Thicket!!!!!
I always stop as I’m driving back home! Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Food is always on point!
Eating here regularly since this restaurant was new, I've seen it roll downhill. The servers are generally neither polite nor competent, and the management does not take action to correct the problem. Many potential customers have left after only a few minutes because of the shear rudeness of the staff at the front counter. I used to enjoy this place, but I'm done with it.
We are in this evening from Ohio and was recommended this place for dinner. Not dissapointed at all. Waitress was very nice and attentive. Food was delicious and was nicely priced. Only negative was the cashier could have been a little friendler. No hello, thank you or anything. Have had better hospitality from cashiers in the North.
Food is awesome people are always nice. Great place for good old southern cooking
Awesome as usal. I'm from Georgia and every time I come to visit my cousin, we come to Lizards Thicket . Food is great and so is the staff. This place is a winner.
Good country cooking and great service! Wish they were in Charleston!!
One of the few restaurants that you can actually an actual southern cooked meal.
Great service and French toast was wonderful
Everything is really nice especially the food but I think the waitress can be more customer service oriented and smile and be polite
The worst food I have ever had. My sons chicken was still raw and bloody and my steak was cold in the middle. I mean ice cold. Never going back.
This Lizard's has a Drive thru, that's why I drive all the way out to this one versus the one near my work! After a long day of slaving I'd rather sit in my car and order than walk on my tired legs lol Thanks for helping me with that friends!!
The drive through line wait was too long so we left. The food is usually good.
