This hole-in-the-wall restaurant in West Columbia was a wonderful find. Service staff was very accommodating of our 5 person party on a busy Saturday brunch time. All orders got raves - especially the Spanish Tortilla and the Steak and Eggs. We went back for dinner and loved the tapas style offerings as well as the satisfying wine list. Once again... More

I called on Easter afternoon to see if they were still serving lunch. They said they were still serving and the last seating would be at 2 pm. I gave my name, said to save us a table for 2, we're on our way! My husband and I were very excited to try this restaurant after reading the reviews! We... More

This used to be a place l loved to go to but my last visit there we noticed that the prices had gone up by 1/3 but the portion had remained the same. These are small plates and in the past like I said were priced accordingly, but now that prices are about the same as regular sized plates in... More

I'd love some more specific feedback on your latest visit. With our new menu (4/10/2017) the most expensive item (entree not small plate) is $17 and the menu as a whole averages out under $10. We will offer occasional entree specials $18-$20 all of which feature locally raised/caught seafood, heritage pork, beef etc and local produce, which obviously costs a... More

The food is consistently good. One small issue...the hash brown situation. They are great but they only come with diced jalapenos. Some times they are hot. We can never let our 10 year get them. Small dinning area but it has a nice intimate feel. Also has outdoor tables.

We are always happy to make hashbrowns for you without peppers. We cook everything to order. Just let your server know! More

Found the place and liked the reviews so we tried it for dinner while visiting USC with the daughter and staying in West Columbia. Walking towards the restaurant we passed some bars which looked a little rough but the location is ok. Nice cocktails and we started with small plates (brie with mango chutney, fried eggplant and chorizo+clams) which were... More

The brunch here is outstanding. Get there early and usually there isn't a line. The service is wonderful and the menu is amazing. My favorite is the three potato hashbrowns with two eggs. You can't go wrong.

This place has a great environment - lot of energy in the room with mix of older folks and college students. Small but nice seating area outside too. I had the fried chicken and waffles which was very good. The sauce was fantastic but I wish it came with more than what they provided. I thought is was a little... More

I had dinner here with family and we ordered a wide range of foods. Caesar salad was ok and interesting as it had sundries tomatoes. The fried eggplant we thought tasted like an elephant ear, with no real eggplant taste. Other dishes we tried, pizza was great; scallops were ok; tuna was good; ravioli great and the mussels were just... More

some of the best food i have ever had in Columbia. We learned about this from our son who lives downtown. Went there for brunch…the omelet was delicious with each item in the omelet having flavor coming through. There signature cinnamon buns were large, warm, and full of great flavor but not too sweet…we so enjoyed the brunch we went... More
