Delicious and a little fancy

Went for lunch like I have many times. The service is always great and the inside of the restaurant is a little more upscale. The price is not that bad though (generally $8-$12 for an entrée) and the food is great! I had the portabella on ciabatta bread and was very impressed,

Saw favorable reviews so I drove a little out of the way to check out Coley's, and what a treat it was. The atmosphere is very mellow and cozy. Apparently they get busy on the weekends, but Monday had plenty of open seating. I wanted to diversify for my taste buds so I had the Artichoke Cakes (taking the servers... More

My daughter took me here for dinner. We started with the pretzel beer dip appetizer which was awesome. I ordered the pork tacos and she ordered the chicken fettuccine. We both had leftovers. I loved the atmosphere. The section we sit in only had about 8 tables. The prices were pretty good and the meals were fresh and awesome. My... More

Had a very disappointing experience at Coley's. The evening started with the hostess spilling my water and got rather worse from there. Took 10 minutes or so after placing our order for my date and me to get out glasses of wine. Took even longer to get our entrees ... pushing 45 minutes. And her salmon and my pork chop... More

Coley's has the feel of a neighborhood restaurant; a place where you always feel comfortable and the food is always good. The prices are reasonable, the service is excellent, and it is a family owned and run establishment. The cuisine is innovative using fresh ingredients and served with a flair. The most important part is that it tastes great! No... More

After a long morning at the VA hospital, I deserved a nice lunch and Coley's provided. My mother and I shared the ham sandwich and each had the spinach salad. Both were quite tasty. The only this I would have improved would be the quality of the ham. It wasn't bad, but not up to the quality of the rest... More

Came in for dinner and ordered the most expensive meal on the menu which happened to be a ribeye steak special. The steak was terrible. It was just a giant piece of gristle. Sent the steak back and ordered a different meal, this time the tacos off the app menu. They were soggy. This was my third or fourth time... More

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!
