Howdy y'all! I am soon to be divorced and am moving to Columbia, where my elderly parents reside. As a new 55 year old single woman, I do enjoy a drink but am NOT into the bar scene. I will be living off of Forest Drive, past Richland Mall from the direction of The Laureat. I am very familiar with Mr. Friendlys, as this is my parents to go to lunch place on Wednesdays and LOVE it. They used to go to Motor Supply, but a few months ago they said the food and service fell off, so now they usuall go to Za's on Friday for lunch. I'm not especially into 5 star dining, LOL especially when I'm paying the bill. I like a nice relaxed place with good food that's reminsence of the old TV show Cheers. I currently live in Alabama (ROLL TIDE #1) where we are chain restaurant city. One thing I LOVE about Columbia is all the independent places you have there. So any recommendations in that aspect will be apprecited. Unfortunately my palate runs to American type food, so I'd like to know more about restaurants in that food range. Thanks in advance!
