In honor of tomorrow's Thanksgiving turkey looming, highlighting the most popular restaurants in Lake Carolina’s exciting Town Center only seems appropriate. While you may feel the need to lay low after your inevitable holiday food coma, these two locally-owned hotspots are community favorites and a ‘must’ for anyone in the market for a delicious, top-notch meal. Both Allean’s Southern Cuisine
and Post Call Bar
are located in the heart of Lake Carolina’s entertainment center, on 5 Lake Carolina Way, Columbia, SC.
Allean’s Southern Cuisine
Have a craving for home-cooked southern goodness? Allean’s Southern Cuisine not only offers a tasty menu of yummy comfort food, but guarantees that you’ll “leave full and pleased!” With a Facebook rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars, this local establishment has become a favorite for Columbia natives. Founded and run by the Wright family, the restaurant offers a “home away from home” atmosphere, with a menu ranging from Momma Mary’s fried chicken to a baked chicken dinner to peach cobbler and sweet potato pie. After getting your fill of authentic southern comfort food, check out the Town Center’s local shops and services right next door. Allean’s is closed for Thanksgiving and Black Friday, but will resume their regular business hours (11:30am - 7pm) on Saturday, November 28.
Post Call Bar
“Sports, spirits and friends” is the tagline for this locally famous, family-friendly sports bar. The name originated from the founders’ desire to have guests arrive on their own time, to relax and recharge. Not only does this atmosphere combine the feel of an upscale sports bar with a serene place to relax after a long day, but it offers a number of community activities on a weekly basis. Sing your heart out at Monday Night Karaoke, experience great live music on Jazz Wednesdays and Thursdays, and celebrate the weekend with a delicious Sunday brunch. The menu encompasses casual meals such as wings and sandwiches, as well as fine dining dishes and an extensive wine and drink collection. Post Call’s specials are a favorite for locals, with deals such as “All You Can Eat Crab Legs” and scrumptious Post Call chicken and waffles. Post Call is closed for Thanksgiving, but reopens on Black Friday for a live DJ and game night.
