Two of us for dinner - we each ordered a salad, one was spinach with salmon, the other apple, gorgonzola, spinach. Both salads were outstanding! Nice outdoor seating, indoor looked nice too.

Saturday evening dinner for four. They have an outside patio, and since the weather was so nice, the patio was full. We opted to order drinks/apps at the bar and wait for a table to open. It was only 10-15 minute wait. The inside atmosphere is very nice, dark wood , great bar. Several draft beers.......and several $5 martinins. 3... More

I had lived in Columbia for 9 years before I visited Coley's and wished I would have visited sooner. The food and drinks are great as is the service. It is on the west side of downtown so parking is easy which is a plus. Coley's is now among one of our Columbia favorites!

It's on the edge of downtown, away from a lot of foot traffic, but that means its easier to find parking. Casual atmosphere, middle of the road pricing for Columbia. After about 10 visits or so, no problems with anything. The food and service are always excellent. We like the outdoor seating a lot too.

Was in town for a business convention and we just picked this restaurant randomly driving down the street. Waiter was very personable. I ordered the chicken, which he recommended, and enjoyed it very much. Nice patio to dine outside if the weathers nice.

My wife and I have been going to Coley's consistently since it opened. Given that our sample size of going is well over 100 times, you can expect a nice meal. Weekends can get busy, but we have never waited over twenty minutes. (Even on True/False weekend) Over the years we had one bad experience. The owner took care of... More

We wanted a nice place to go for my husband's birthday and our friends were all submitting suggestions to us. Coley's landed at the top of the list as we were looking for a non-chain, smaller venue with great food at a reasonable price. It did not disappoint! Our son had to try the nachos for an appetizer. It could... More

Coley's is a locally owned restaurant that has great food and a nice relaxed atmosphere. While the menu is not huge, it ranges from sandwiches to fish to steak to pork and great appetizers. Anyone should be able to find a great meal. They have a great bar that includes a good selection of beer and wine as well as... More

First, the food is wonderful. Local restaurant. Love to support local. My friend and I suffer from severe food allergies. Dining out can always be an adventure (sometimes not a good one). We know that we can go to Coley's and not worry. That alone makes it one of our favorite locations. The menu is small, but allows for exceptional... More

Went here for the first time on recommendation of my son. Food was OK, but my son stated it was not up to the usual level. His pasta was slightly undercooked and the sauce was only fair. His beer (tap) was warm. My wife has the chicken salad and said it was very good. I had a burger. The bun... More
