The Backyard Cafe

COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) -- Our Natalie Parsons headed over to The Backyard Café for this week's Food Friday brought to you by U.S. Food's CHEF'STORE, a hidden gem located Old Barnwell Road in West Columbia.

The restaurant has been serving families from across the Midlands for about 10 years now.

Owner Peg Mead says that it’s a place that food lovers don’t just stop at, but make it a destination and end up staying for hours at a time.

Parsons went into the kitchen with their chef, Frank Finders, to cook Steak Alfredo, Mediterranean Chicken, Backyard Burger and Southern Delight.

Parsons also had a taste of their Pecan Cake that comes with a scoop of The Backyard Café’s homemade Ice Cream.

Mead says that the restaurant is able to cater any type of parties and is planning to have eclipse specials on August 21.
