We loved the atmosphere from the moment we entered. Immediately ahead was the bar. To the left and right were dining areas where the walls were lined with photos of people dining here, as well as horse memoribilia. Just right for Lexington! We bought had the tenderloin...we didn't go the Nighthawk style, but opted for the garlic butter in a... More

Got tables together for our group of 45 quickly. Friendly staff. Good food. Checks could have come out a little faster, ended up taking a little over two hours. Still did a great job with a huge group.

If you like steak then you need to go to Columbia Steakhouse, especially when they are running their special. They have a great price for their signature steak and you will love their house salad. I am particularly fond of their broccoli caserole.

The atmosphere of Columbias isn't the nicest, but don't let that fool you. The food will not disappoint you! The Night Hawk Filet will melt in your mouth! It has a wonderful garlic butter melted over it. The baked potatoes are HUGE and the Diablo salad is a must try as well. Again, the building isn't in best of shape,... More

We ate there 2 nights. First night was great, 2nd night was just average. Service was really bad and slow. Husband had the lamb fries and said they were great. Daughter and I had the Filet and 1st night it was really good 2nd noght was really fatty. Overall, we would eat there again.
