For wings and ribs -- it is okay. Other places in the Vista though for a better meal at the the same price.
NO CRAB LEGS !!!!!!!!! – NOT EVEN 1 STAR BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE ANY OF THEIR SPECIALS THE WEBSITE BOASTS ABOUT !!!
I CALLED AND THEY STOPPED SERVING ALL YOU CAN EAT CRAB LEGS !!!!!!!
I WISH THEY WOULD UP DATE THEIR WEBSITE !!!!! AND FORGET ABOUT THE " SPECIAL" HAPPY HOUR DRINKS
love the food – we dropped in and had a salad and wings and we were happy with the food and the waitress. we are making a habit out of going there on weekends, i would recommend it to my friends.
Carolina Wings & Ribs,600 Gervais,downtown Columbia – Wings, ribs, & wing chips very good! Service is horrible,rotten, stinks.
Carolina Wings rocks! – Okay, completely biased view of Carolina Wings because the food is awesome! Although we don't come downtown as much as we like, it's always a must stop for food at Carolina Wings. Sure, there are way too many places to have a couple of beers - although CW's draft lineup has gotten progressively better (not quite Flying Saucer), but you gotta fill up on CW ribs and wings - or a little secret,...their burgers are phenominal. the servers are friendly (albeit mostly young college students) and prices are reasonable - ENJOY!!!
As a former server... – I too am I former employee of the Vista's Carolina Wings (06-07)and while I can agree that service is not always fantastic, I can attest to the food. The chicken is freshly breaded and fried and I do love their wing sauces. My personal favorites are the Doc's BBQ and the Teri-Cajun (as for the bbq fanatic-you're an idiot... SC is known for it's wide variety of bbq flavors but columbia's area is known for mustard- you can divide the state into BBQ flavors like you divide it into counties). Keep in mind that most of the employees are also full time college students (and making $2.13 per hour + tips) and most of the managers are making less than the servers so... be considerate. Don't expect fast service on a game day though most week nights you'll find a quiet family restaurant and bar. They also have great specials (think 40 cent wings, all you can eat crab legs, etc.)
Amazing Food! – Okay, I'm not like all the other "goofs" who rave about food at a restaurant just because they're still in business when all the others are dropping like flies, but Carolina Wings is undoubtly the best bet for your buck in the Vista. Sure, it's not glitzy like many of the other places down there, but it's phenominal food with great service. Even though they are known for their wings and ribs, I personally order their burgers most of the time. Great place to go watch sports, too! I hope they can weather this economic storm,...I'll do my part!
Worst Service In Town – I've been going to Carolina Wings in the Vista since it opened. I must say that over the past 2-3 years I have seen the quality of the food and service going downhill. I have also noticed a significant change in the staff as well. The waitstaff used to me more knowledgable about the menu, what is offered at the bar, etc... I have also noticed that there seems to be a high turnover of managers at all of the locations. What has happened to the people that worked for the company for years???? Those who helped build the company? Looks like they have been replaced with younger, less-paid managers. While I do understand this kind of move in this economy, I hope you realize that your business has changed and not for the better. I will not eat at another Carolina Wings and Ribhouse again due to the quality of the food and the service.
NASTY – I worked at Carolina Wings for a few months and let me tell you....I never ate the food. The kitchen is a mess, the dishes dont get cleaned all the way and frankly the cooks and most of the servers just dont care. Customers would ask me what I would reccommend and I had to make something up because I was so disgusted by all the food. When eating at Carolina Wings, use discretion.
GREAT FOOD - Horrible Service - Christopher Wayne Rosenbeck – I would give a 5 star for food, however service is horrible. Make sure your server is not named "Christopher Wayne Rosenbeck". He shows up at the west columbia store. (I can't say he actually works, but he shows up) I will never go back even though the food is GREAT
