The Carolina Strip Club Ratings and Reviews
Very succinctly it was good. On no level ...
Very succinctly it was good. On no level was it great nor would it ever be confused with great but it was good. Our server Todd was extremely accommodating, pleasant, interactive an overall joy. However, the food never reached that level whether it was the strip, or fillet or ribeye or piece of fish. The wine list was pedestrian and even the "good" wines weren't of high quality. Nonetheless, the company and the service and to some degree the ambience made this a fine stop.

Food was good, steak was cooked to my request. Portions were large. Had some trouble when we first arrived receiving service. Had to ask the Manager for a waitress. Drinks seemed watered down a bit. The atmosphere was nice, quiet and had a piano player softly playing in the background. I would say they could spend some money on the porch and the overall decor. Looked like they had taken over the restaurant from a previous owner and had not put any money into making it their own or sprucing it up.

I had been there before but was very disappointed this time. First thing was the onion soup was cold with hard piece of cheese on top (2 orders). When I told the waiter he informed me it would eventually melt so I had to explain that it would not melt unless the soup was hot so he brought back and heated to a luke warm temp??? The next issue was they brought out three meals together and informed us that it would be another 5 minutes for the last meal since they did not have pasta made. We sat and waited over 15 minutes(no exaggeration) for last meal and when it came out the rest were cold as ice. I had asked if our meals could have been kept warm until all meals were ready and was informed that they didn't have anything to keep warm. Expensive meal that no one ate and was not offered any compensation.

We are from out of town and wanted a nice place to take our UofSC student and our family for Parent's weekend. The steaks were fantastic. The service was very attentive and we would definitely go back in the future.

So, rough night. We chose to have dinner here before a concert and they seated all 9 of us upstairs. When we sat down, no exaggeration, the thermometer said 87 degrees.
Our server finally had the owner come upstairs to turn some air on.
Service/Kitchen was bad, between order being wrong and forgetting simple things, it was painful.
Owner did stop by and apologize and gave us a 10% discount.
Not sure if we'll stop by again, positive after an hour of waiting, when our food arrived, it was great.

Shanna was an excellent waitress-very attentive but not intrusive. Jed, the chef, was very personable and accommodating. We both had the small ribeye-cooked as we requested and seasoned appropriately. The collards are the best in town! My favorite item, however, is the crispy shrimp appetizer-with the pickled ginger, I could make those my meal. We find this to be one of our favorite restaurants in Columbia.

Very quiet, nice piano playing, food was pretty good, not the best steak in town, but solid. The collard greens were on point however! Our table was a 2 top, and was between a tall table and the door to the kitchen, so probably the least ideal spot in the whole place. We were very envious of many of the other tables. Other than that, it was a great date night location.

The waitress, bartender/manager and two customers thought it would be appropriate to continuously inform my date they thought he was good looking and if he and I were a couple. It made the dinner uncomfortable to say the least. Very inappropriate for staff to engage in and instigate this type of behavior.

The only problem we had was how long it took to get the food! It was an hour before we got appetizers and another hour to entrees. We know it wasn't the waitresses fault but the there were very few other patrons in the restaurant so there is no reason it should have taken that long. We love the food there and were glad it wasn't busy so we could enjoy conversation but it was ridiculous for the food to take that long to get to us!

We had 7:00 reservations on a Friday to celebrate our anniversary and let our 8 year old daughter accompany us. This was our first visit. The server was so nice and made our little girl feel welcome as well. The piano player was a great touch. We had the green bean fries with wasabi ranch which were addictive! The bread was delicious!!!! The manager came over to speak with us and make sure all was well. She was very personable and even sent over 2 glasses of champagne for my husband and me for our anniversary. They prepared a plain burger for our daughter but wasn't seasoned for our kid. She can be picky and I didn't expect a kids menu or kid friendly menu so not an issue but just be aware of yours is like mine. The sides were very tasty and the proper temperature when brought out. They were collards (my husband raved), Gouda Mac n cheese, roasted brussel sprouts, and garlic mashed potatoes. My husband had the 12 oz NY Strip and said it was just average. I had the 6 oz filet and ordered it medium but was medium well. It had good flavor but was dry to me. All in all, I'm not sure we will return even though everyone was so great. The food just wasn't enough to bring me back for the price.

Of course, it is a steak restaurant, the best choices will be steaks.
The remainder is so so, the starters lacked some freshness, particularly the soups, probably in the warmer for too long, turning saltier and thicker.
The ribeye was reasonable, the temperature was correct, and it was aged, I would prefer a longer dry age.
Service was good, not intrusive and cordial. The ambience is tradicional and dated with wood paneling and dark.
Overall, a reasonable place, but not my first choice.
We were there with our family celebrating our daughter's graduation from South Carolina. We had a party of 6 and were shown to a booth that was not big enough. We were given a chair to put at the end of the table. OK. The room we were seated in was very dark. As the daylight faded it became clear that our table would be very dark. We asked about the lights and our waiter said they didn't work, but offered to get us candles etc. Another party was seated and their waiter turned on another set of lights, but our table was still in the dark. We then moved to the next table which had a little bit better lighting. We ordered a bottle of wine and our dinners. My daughter and I ordered the Tuna. Our waiter recommended it be cooked barely seared. We agreed. When our food arrived her tuna was cooked completely through. Mine was a little better, but was no where near barely seared. We ordered another bottle of wine. No luck. They didn't have another bottle. Our waiter was gracious and none of it was his fault. There are some serious flaws at this restaurant and it was expensive. I am happy to pay for good food and a good experience. This was not it. I would recommend you stay away.
Great service and awesome food.
We hosted a business dinner in April 2016 for 12 people in the private room. The service was great; the water glasses, drinks and appetizers were consistently flowing. There were only a few food options but everyone loved what they ordered. The appetizers were good but difficult for groups, meaning they were not finger foods, small and there were no chips or bread with them. We had our annual meeting here last year as well. I enjoyed the private room much better, the table was in a square and you could see everyone.
The name catchs your attention
The strip steaks were flavorful and the salads and she crab soup were tasty. The service was a little spotty and it was a slow night in the restaurant, but all in all an OK experience. We were told later that there were better steakhouses in Columbia, but we had a pleasant meal.
Good steaks without the noise
We celebrated a birthday here in March. The steaks were excellent albeit a little on the salty side. The service was attentive. Plus, they treated my 7 year old with appropriate respect. The only thing I would ding them on is that there are several "premium" sides and salads that we weren't told about (or that was mentioned in the menu). There is a 2.00 up charge for these items. Any time you have that, it should always be mentioned by either the server or the menu. Otherwise, I would return.

The service was terrible. We waited for over 20 minutes to order and our food took over an hour and 15 mins to come out after that. We ordered 2 medium rare filets, neither was cooked correctly (both way over) and the place was empty. Also, the qualiry of yhe food is not on par with other similarly priced steakhouses. Outback and longhorn have better quality. The servers did not even come by to refill water or drinks while we waited. Place is over priced, do not waste you time kr money. No compensation was offered by the restaurant.
Great Service, Good Food
Arrived and reservations were ready. Got seated and ordered drinks. Food selection was good.as well as service thanks to Vale. Food presentation was good, and steaks were cooked exactly as ordered. Were not rushed to finish and leave. Great spot for a good steak and conversation with friends.
Only wish they had Valet Service since parking around there is a bit difficult.
Would return, and have told other about this hidden treasure.

We travel to a lot of different places and eat at some of the finish restaurant s , your food has always been wonderful .
Service was not good , slow . With a little re-decorating and a new waiting staff , your restaurant could be excellent.
