Northern folks we aware...they don't make sausage gravy like we do...they add it after the gravy is made. It is sprinkled in. The eggs were cooked perfect. The biscuits are awesome. Pancake were...

Despite the off-putting name, this was delicious! Good home cooking with an extremely friendly waitress. I had the fried chicken. It was juicy. My husband got the pot roast and like it. Their sides are varied and delicious. The Mac and cheese-yum. Green beans, grilled vegetables, black eyed peas and more!

This is a family-owned business that has grown from one location 35 years ago to 15 restaurants today. Their claim to fame is country cooking. The restaurant is open from 6AM to 9PM. Breakfast is served until 11:30 on weekdays, until noon on weekends. Decor is country charming. Our breakfasts consisted of a “build your own omelet” and the “hearty... More

Excellent breakfast. Lots of options. Health choices too. Plus the traditional southern home cooked ones too. Have the biscuits and skip the toast. The biscuits were very good. Excellent coffee. Excellent service.

Saw this place online and it seemed to get good reviews for southern cooking particularly their fried chicken. We got seated immediately, waitress was nice, food was delivered in about ten minutes. The fried chicken was swayed overcooked, the beans were lukewarm, and... More

Wanted some home cooking so though I'd try this place in spite of its name. Jennifer waited on me and I couldn't decide on the Cole slaw, so she brought me a sample. I had the fried chicken, potatoes and gravy, and the slaw. A veteran and his wife heard where I was from, after talking with the wait staff,... More

Vegetables have that canned taste and not good fresh that I would like. Not my favorite place to get vegetables which we need more of in the Columbia/lexington area

If enjoy good southern food, you will really like Lizard's Thicket. It is a family owned and operated business that puts the customer first. I highly recommend it. I think you will enjoy the food and the atmosphere
