Columbia, South Carolina BBQ, Boiled Peanuts, Fried Oysters

Good-Ol’ Southern Eating!

Columbia, South Carolina, is the capital of the state, and perhaps is also the capital of good Southern-style eating too! Columbia, the “Capital of Southern Hospitality,” is jam-packed with culture, arts, theater, dancing, waterfront fun, as well as top-notch eateries and bars. If you’re new to Columbia you might take note of Columbians yellow BBQ sauce made of mustard and sugar cane or their famous boiled peanuts, however, regardless of whether you’re a local or a passerby, you don’t want to miss the opportunity to take your loved out for a lovely evening at Mr. Friendly’s. At Mr. Friendly’s you can start off your meal with buttermilk fried quail medallions and round it off with entrees such as sesame seared yellowfin tuna or house-ground meatloaf. If you want to keep things a little slower, sample the classical Midland region cuisine at War Mouth, where we’re more than confident that you’ll go crazy for their wood smoked ribs. Conversely, you can dress things up a bit at the Solstice Kitchen & Wine Bar. At Solstice Kitchen & Wine Bar you’ll find yourself sipping a cocktail while waiting for your buttermilk fried chicken breast or shrimp & grits. Basically, whether you are looking for classic Southern soul food, seafood, or BBQ, Columbia has you covered!
