South Carolina’s Home Cookin’
“Let’s cook just like we do at home,” said Bob and Anna Williams, when they opened the first Lizard’s Thicket in 1977. They only wanted to use the highest quality food and ingredients. Anna would batter the okra herself and she fried chicken in a skillet. As the restaurant grew, the cooking equipment had to change to keep up with the demand, but Bob and Anna’s attention to detail did not. Even today with Lizard’s Thicket serving over 12,000 meals a day (and much more on Sunday), no shortcuts are taken and the ingredients and food preparation still speak to the same high standards that Bob and Anna worked so hard to instill from the very beginning.
Today, Bob and Anna’s children and grandchildren are working in each of our 15 restaurants on a daily basis to ensure that customers enjoy the same level of service that’s always been a hallmark of Lizard’s Thicket. And it goes without saying that our country cooking is prepared with high-quality ingredients.
We’re proud that our traditional Southern menu offers a wide variety of well rounded nutritional meals at a great value. It is our pledge to you that the Williams family and Lizard’s Thicket will continue to serve you and your family the finest, tastiest country cooking around. Like we’ve always said, “y’all come!”
Look what folks are saying about our restaurant!
Had Sunday dinner with the family at the Two Notch location. Giving a SHOUT out to Hattie! She gave us absolutely awesome service to a party of 18! She was beyond awesome. We’ve been out to lots of places with a group that large and NEVER had service that superior! WTG!

The Thicket does have great food, excellent service, fair prices; but, what they don’t advertise is that each “thicket” is a meeting place for the locals who gather daily to spend time with friends they normally wouldn’t run into.
