Just a great place to go

Coley's is a great place to have an intimate dinner together or to get together with friends. The menu has a nice grouping of wonderful food. Their mixologist continually develops unique cocktails for the current season.

We went on a Friday night for our first visit and were seated on the patio right away. The menu is not extensive but the three of us each found something interesting to try. The salads are very large and they have an extensive selection of interesting dressings. The entrees were reasonably priced and prepared just right. They also have... More

High quality restaurant downtown. Love their cajun chicken philly. Good burgers also. Nachos are huge. They had some new seasonal salads on the menu last night. Chocolate gooey butter cake is usually great but last night it was hard. When I asked, it seemed as though it's now being made by someone different. Still, one of my "go to" restaurants... More

Every year, all the women in my family, sisters, daughters, nieces, get together for a fun day out. We start out at Coley's American Bistro because we love the atmosphere and the food. The patio area is nice, weather permitting. Otherwise, we sit in the elevated "stage" by the windows. They have delightful Sangria's and their food choices are delicious.... More

Traveling through Columbia, we were looking for something local new the Mizzou campus. Coley's met that desire. It is a smaller, local place, which was not very busy on an early Sunday evening. We were certainly ahead of the dinner rush. The service was outstanding. The items we ordered were very good. they had a very nice selection of entrees... More

Especially side dish of man and cheese. Do not leave without trying it. Your won't regret it. Here's a little pros and cons summary for ya: Pros -Location not too bad.... More

I was just going through trip advisor's top restaurants in Columbia, and was shocked to see this as the 15th best restaurant. My title says it all. I have never been to a restaurant that was so average. I want to say that I liked the food or I didn't like it, but it was just ordinary. The service wasn't... More
