Simple, clean restaurant with excellent food. This Thicket is very convenient to the airport. The staff is pleasant and helpful, the food is delicious and the prices are reasonable. I stopped in for breakfast this visit but felt like I missed out on their various tasty vegetable dishes offered every day.

On the way from Charleston to Atlanta we cut through a little town called Lexington and stopped at this restaurant. Luckily they're known for pretty good southern cooking and it did not disappoint. Best value is their "small plates" for $3.99... order two of these and you have 2 meats and 4 vegetables Plus muffins or rolls for $8 that's... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch after a business meeting. There was no waiting which was great since everyone had a long drive ahead. The service was great and our food was served quickly. Everyone enjoyed their lunch. We will stop in here again when in the area.

We were out for a drive looking for a place to have dinner when we stumbled upon Lizard's Thicket. With a name like that we had to stop. and I am glad we did. Their shtick is "meat & 2 (or 1 or 3 or 4) meaning order your meat, and then add one two three or four veggies. Meat... More

Ate here on a Saturday afternoon with the family. The waitress was very nice and helpful. I ordered the country fried steak with extra onions. I also had a side salad and fried squash. Everything I ordered was very good. Only complaints we had from anyone at the tables was the collard greens.

Service was prompt and very friendly. Every dish of our meal was a bit overcooked. Nothing was very hot.

We stopped for breakfast on the way to golf. Service and food were good. You will not be disappointed. I have never eaten anything but breakfast at any Lizard Thicket.

I used to live in this area of South Carolina and Lizard's Thicket was a great "Meat and three" place to go to. However, on my last visit, it seemed to be under new ownership or something. The meat was hardly edible, the veggies were warm at best even when I complained and asked for a redo and the service... More
