We’re so thrilled to welcome you to Columbia SC and the University of South Carolina. Columbia continues to grow and thrive, and we can’t wait for you to see where we’ve come and where we’re going. Whether you’re here for orientation, an alumni event, Parents Weekend or a football game, we hope you enjoy every moment of your time here—and every single bite of food you put in your mouth. 

We know you want every fork-full to count, so we’ve compiled a list of delicious places to grab a bite to eat (and they’re all close to campus). Fast-casual or fine dining, meatless or a steak dinner, we’ve got you covered. And if you’re on the lookout for a quick cocktail or even just dessert, we’ve got you covered there, too. Let’s eat, y’all!
