Small older diner on Hampton St in Columbia,SC. Real home cooked food on a budget. 3 veggies and 1 meat deal. Better and quieter than Lizard's Thicket. Friendly staff. You can smell the food cooking while you wait.

In September Debbie with Nathan's Restaurant catered a dinner party of 50 people for me. She prepared a classic Southern Buffet with fried chicken, BBQ and a variety of sides, desserts and beverages. The food was wonderful and plentiful. Debbie went out of her way...More

I had the baked chicken, potato salad, collard greens and butter beans. Everything was very good and not over seasoned. The place is small, quaint and eclectic. A really good place for a traditional southern lunch downtown.

This place has amazing Southern comfort food. Better than Lizard's Thicket or Cracker Barrel, this meat and three restaurant is on Hampton Street in downtown Columbia. It was created and still is run by a local hard working family and they are really good people....More

Very very small portions. Also they don't advertise prices and will change prices on you from week to week..... Owner doesn't need to be in this business.... If I go again I 'll take a Pic of these ridiculous small portions...

Nathan’s is one of the most inconspicuous restaurants in Columbia. This quirky little restaurant is located in a re-purposed pharmacy building and situated at an intersection where no restaurant should logically belong. I’d wager that most motorists wouldn’t recognize that it’s a restaurant even while...More
