Our family frequently eats at this establishment, and we are always satisfied with the food and service. The food is just like a home cooked Southern meal. It is a family friendly environment suitable for all ages. The staff is always friendly, and go out of their way to make sure the customers are satisfied. They have a great selection... More

A good alternative to fast food. Country style food in a diner/family restaurant atmosphere. The staff are friendly with a country twang, and the food is....well country kitchen that's been franchised. The burger I had was good, not bad and not outstanding. At least it wasn't served on a brioche bun.

Very busy place for lunch, and pleasant staff. Busy menus too. My mistake was having the beef stew. Eh, like out of a can. My colleagues' quartered chicken looked tasty... Choose your "meats" wisely.

Simple, clean restaurant with excellent food. This Thicket is very convenient to the airport. The staff is pleasant and helpful, the food is delicious and the prices are reasonable. I stopped in for breakfast this visit but felt like I missed out on their various tasty vegetable dishes offered every day.

On the way from Charleston to Atlanta we cut through a little town called Lexington and stopped at this restaurant. Luckily they're known for pretty good southern cooking and it did not disappoint. Best value is their "small plates" for $3.99... order two of these and you have 2 meats and 4 vegetables Plus muffins or rolls for $8 that's... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch after a business meeting. There was no waiting which was great since everyone had a long drive ahead. The service was great and our food was served quickly. Everyone enjoyed their lunch. We will stop in here again when in the area.

We were out for a drive looking for a place to have dinner when we stumbled upon Lizard's Thicket. With a name like that we had to stop. and I am glad we did. Their shtick is "meat & 2 (or 1 or 3 or 4) meaning order your meat, and then add one two three or four veggies. Meat... More

Ate here on a Saturday afternoon with the family. The waitress was very nice and helpful. I ordered the country fried steak with extra onions. I also had a side salad and fried squash. Everything I ordered was very good. Only complaints we had from anyone at the tables was the collard greens.

Service was prompt and very friendly. Every dish of our meal was a bit overcooked. Nothing was very hot.
