Columbia, Sc - Lake Murray area

We are spending the weekend on Lake Murray in Columbia, Sc and need some dining options. After reading the boards, I've decided that we'll definitely eat BBQ at Granny's one night. Any other suggestions in that area?

  1. Granny's is ok but their BBQ is not as good as Boar's Nest which is close by and a better choice. If you want the best country all-you-can-eat buffet in the South and featured in publications such as the Stern's Road Food, I'd make the short 30 minute drive to Shealy's in Leesville. I've eaten all over the world and it's still my favorite. Their BBQ is good but nothing beats their fried chicken and saw mill gravy. It's closed on Sunday and Wednesday night but open the rest of the week.

      Sadly, Boars Nest has closed. But drive south a little ways on 378 off I-26 and try Hudson's Smokehouse for very good BBQ.

      I wasn't thrilled with Granny's.
