I happened to come across a review of this place that mentioned its selection of craft beers, so I sought it out. It is really kind of hidden in a strip mall, and had I not sought it out, I certainly never would have encountered it . . . but I'm so glad I did. It had a great neighborhood... More

I am a bar girl-- and i am continually looking for a bar that has great beers and food-- hard to find. This bar makes all its food in house and it shows-- the mozzarella sticks are unreal- like nothing i have had as they are fresh! The fish tacos- well better then any Tex mex place I have had...

We were attending a lacrosse tournament in Columbia. We had three hours between games and were looking for a place for a bunch of us to go, cool off and get some food and cold beverages. Someone found the Second Chance Saloon. It really was only 5 minutes from the fields, though a little tricky driving through the planned community... More

This a little great neighborhood bar. Tasty fresh food. My favorites are the burgers and wings. They also have great happy hour specials. Tuesday is half price burgers and they also have wings and drinks on special the other days of the week. Staff is friendly. They also have an outdoor patio, which is great on a nice day. They...

Second Chance is my First Choice in Columbia. We have gone there many times and have never been disappointed. I really like their chili. The french fries are awesome - and of course the selection of beers makes it tough to order just one - and of course who does that. A place to go and kick back.

Other reviewers are right -- it looks sketchy inside, a hold-over from its original roots as Channings, a 1970s seafood restaurant. My experiences have been from group Happy Hours, with great appetizers (Old Bay wings done right), and a good selection of beers, often including Baltimore's Natty Boh in $1 bottles (National Bohemian, for the uninitiated). Local bands do play... More

First, there was Last Chance, which had an amazing selection of beer and decent food. Then, once it closed, there were two restaurants that came and went. Then, lovers of Last Chance took a chance and opened Second Chance in the same place. And they have done awesome. There's a fairly small bar, some high-top tables, and some booths in... More

So, the place looks a little sketchy from the outside, and a little sketchier inside. But the people are nice, on both sides of the bar. The menu looks like decent bar far. And then the food comes. And its all prepared fresh, from scratch. Its really, really good. Had different kinds of wings, very fresh, crispy and meaty. Pickle... More
