Thirsty Fellow Pizzeria and Pub: Known for their pizza, but also provides a comfortable atmosphere with a bar full of tv’s. Also known for their “Gorgonzola Chips” and come with their gorgonzola sauce.

Liberty Tap Room & Grill: Located in downtown Columbia, this local chain is known for their steak, American fare and microbrews. Offers a relaxed, stylish setting making it a popular spot.

Bernie’s Chicken: Walking distance from Willams-Brice Stadium, this is one of the best places in the entire state of South Carolina for fried chicken. Bernie’s looks like a fast food joint, and arguable may be. But the quality of food is far from it taste-wise. Their broasted chicken is deep fried under pressure which makes it essentially grease-free.
