Mr. Friendly's is a comfortable, casual spot - conveniently located near the University and the City's Five Points district.

Always a great place. Not large place and getting stable can be tough. But if you get a table you will have a great meal and nice time.

We have been going to Mr. Friendly's for 20 years. The owner & staff are wonderful! The food is phenomenal. It is Southern Cuisine with a great atmosphere. The only thing that is negative thing is they do NOT take reservations.

Very quiet and relaxing place. We ordered the skillet pimento cheese New Orleans style appetizer. Grilled cob salad, and a burger. The pimento cheese was A-mazing!!! The burger was not memorable and the grilled chicken on the salad was rubbery, but the greens were fresh. Overall, the appetizer rocked!

Mr. Friendly' is my very favorite lunch spot downtown! It's our go to place for birthday lunches with girlfriends. The Charleston chicken salad with the peach chutney is to die for! But save room for one of their delicious desserts! Friendly service and reasonable prices make it even better! A must try!

Went with my wife a few times now. Food is so good. I didn't think it was too pricey for the value of food. Good drink selection too.

Ordered special blt with soft shell crab. Delicious. $5 for a glass of wine. Parking on site. Hip spot. House salad was good. Would return if in Columbia.
