In 1977, in a home on Broad River Road in Columbia, S.C, Bob and Anna Williams opened the very first Lizard's Thicket. The phrase "home cooking" is exacting! All of our Lizard's Thicket meals were based on Anna's own recipes. In the past forty years, we have grown to 15 locations with over 700 employees! We still pride ourselves on being a place where families and groups of friends can gather for a hearty, southern cooked meal and catch up on their days. To this day, we are still owned and operated by Bob and Anna's children and grandchildren.
