Came in with group and had split waiters. One was terrific, the other one the worst ever. We were a group so we automatically had to pay the 18% gratuity. Half the group had lunch (delicious) ordered delivered and eaten. The other half did not receive ANY food before the the first waiter's tables were done eating. Over 45 minutes. It took twenty minutes for the second waiter to tell the table they were out of the chicken wings they ordered. Then continued by coming back and asking the second half about what they ordered on 3 seperate occasions before finally delivering cold food 50 minutes after it was ordered. No remorse, no comp offer, just the full bill and an excuse about being understaffed. We had a $260 bill and then after waiting for an hour and getting cold food had to pay a $44 service fee for lousy service

I love this place! The breakfasts are great. My eggs are always cooked to perfection. The coffee is delicious and they use real half & half and not some artificial junk for creamer. The dinners are like home cooking. I've never had liver and onions cooked any better. Their sandwiches are good too. The waitresses are friendly and will go out of their way to please you. The service is fast. This is my kind of place!

I really, really like this place. I've never actually eaten dinner, but have gone numerous times for happy hour. It's quite a deal during that time. Crab Rangoon, Pretzel bites, Buffalo Chicken Dip, asparagus.....it's all yummy. The only draw back is the size of the place. If you don't get there early you might have to sit on a bench seat with a table the height of a coffee table. But it still might be worth it!

Super great place. Nice selection on the menu and something for everyone at prices that don't break the bank. Only drawback is that it's always crowded and generally you have to wait for a table and it's really noisy inside. But food is great as is the beer.

Flatbranch was amazing... yet again. Food is very good, inexpensive, and consistant. The staff is always friendly and do their best to keep up with the crowd. By far, Flatbranch is the best dinning out experience in Columbia.

We always enjoy a meal at Mackenzies. Sad to say we don't eat out a lot but when we do, we prefer to go someplace where the good and service are excellent. Mackenzies fits the bill!

Tips & Advices
Interior designers can generally work on every type of room, but one should not assume that all of them can work on every type of space. More complicated projects--for example those in buildings with historic preservation strictures, or those that are going for sustainability certifications--will be suited to interior designers with specific expertise. Also, interior designers that have experience in a certain type of project may not want to take on projects that are outside their expertise. For example, an interior designer who has only worked on commercial projects may not want to do a small private home.
Every interior designer has their own style, but some designers are more versatile than others. Some really do specialize in functionality and code compliance, whereas others are more focused on aesthetics. Interior decorators are completely focused on visual impact, and therefore should be reviewed and selected based on how well their style is a match for the client’s tastes.
Full-service interior design starts with an assessment of a site and the client’s long-term needs for that space. It encompasses concept design, floor plans and lighting plans, providing project specifications to contractors, supervising  contractor negotiations and installations, applying for permits, and shopping for all the materials and pieces for the project. On top of this, there are the “decorator” deliverables, i.e. creating the aesthetic of the space, selecting wall colors/covers and furniture pieces, purchasing products and installing them.
An interior designer may come into a development project very early on, working with the developer and architect from the pre-construction phase. They may be the one to design floor plans, decide where to place interior walls, and supervise contractors that are installing elements of the build. They often work on commercial projects, although many of them work on residential projects. Interior designers can “switch hats” and do interior decoration, which means they are only focused on the aesthetic elements and visual components of a residence.
An interior designer or interior decorator should ask a potential client what the scope of the project is, what the projected budget is, what payment structure the client wants, and what the timeline for the project is. Also, they should be asking whether the client has any samples of other projects they like, and would like to use as a guideline. They could also ask what the client’s budget for furniture/accessories/art is, since that in many cases is a separate amount from the budget for the designer’s labor. If an interior designer is being interviewed early into a new build or a renovation project, they might ask questions to determine whether they can collaborate with architects and contractors from early on, to execute their vision for the space. If that is not in line with a client’s wishes, the client can then say that the project scope is for interior design only.
