It’s time for MARDI GRAS y’all!


With Valentines Day heading our way this weekend, it could be easy to overlook one of the best Southern holidays of the year, but not us! We’re gearing up to serve y’all the best of Louisiana cuisine Monday, Feb. 16th, through Wednesday, Feb. 18th, at both lunch and dinner.

Everything from Jambalaya and Etouffee, to Gumbo and Muffulettas, we’ve got you covered. Oh, and don’t forget the Hurricanes and Sazarecs from the bar! We don’t take reservations, so just show up & get your MARDI GRAS on!

Dining With Dogs is Back!

It’s time to take your pup out for date night!

We’ve partnered with Pupcakes Boutique to bring you another “Dining with Dogs” patio event! Owners (aka the humans) order dinner from the regular menu, while your dog enjoys a pet-friendly, 3 course dinner prepared by Pupcakes.

The cost is $12 per dog and you must make a reservation to attend, as space is limited. To book a spot, please call Pupcakes at (803)467-0171.  Reservations are not available through the restaurant.

The next date is either Tues, June 17th at Solstice Kitchen or Wed, June 18th at Mr. Friendly’s.  Both events start promptly at 6pm.

Thanks for reading, and we hope to see you at the next Dining with Dogs event!


Holiday Hours

In observance of Memorial Day, Mr. Friendly’s and our sister restaurants, Cellar on Greene & Solstice Kitchen, will be CLOSED on Monday, May 26th for both lunch and dinner.

We’d like to take a moment to remember all of the US soldiers who lost their lives fighting for our country, and to thank those who are currently serving.  While it might not seem like much, we will be offering a 20% discount to active duty military and veterans on Friday, May 23rd & Saturday, May 24th, at all three of our restaurants!  Just show your military ID to get the discount!

We hope you have a safe and relaxing holiday weekend!

Soft Shell Crabs Are Back!

photo (10)These active little guys were delivered this morning, marking the beginning of Soft Shell Crab season!  We here at Mr. Friendly’s LOVE these crabs, serving them at both lunch and dinner whenever they’re available.

At lunch you can expect to see them Buttermilk Fried, and served on a toasted baguette Po’ Boy style, or on top of a garden fresh salad.  At dinner, enjoy them as an appetizer or entree, typically served with our creamy stone-ground grits.

Keep in mind, these crabs won’t necessarily be available every day!  We get them as often as humanly possible, but make sure to check out our “Food & Spirits” page to see a complete list of our daily specials and keep up with us on Facebook to see if the latest shipment has arrived!

Mardi Gras Celebration Starts Next Week!

Monday, March 3rd – Thursday, March 6th 

Mardi Gras is possibly our favorite holiday here at Mr. Friendly’s. Also known as “Fat Tuesday,” Mardi Gras refers to the practice of splurging on richer, decadent cuisine before fasting.  And nobody does the holiday better than New Orleans, Louisiana! That’s why for both lunch and dinner we’ll be serving up all that is Cajun and Creole.

Here’s just a sampling of you’ll find…

Creole Jambalaya, Chicken & Andouille Sausage Gumbo, Crawfish Etouffee, Muffulettas, Red Beans & Rice, Fried Oyster Po’ Boys, Sweet Corn Maque Choux, plus Hurricanes & Sazeracs from the bar!

Mr. Friendly's is open for lunch Monday-Friday from 11:30am-2:30pm, and then for dinner Monday-Saturday starting at 5:30pm.
