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

I recently took my mother to Coley's for a Thursday night meal. We both had the salmon, and enjoyed it very much. It was well-prepared, just the right temperature, and well presented. The restaurant was not too busy at the time, so it is hard to judge how the service might be if they are busier. But based on our... More

Many very unusual but thoughtfully chosen choices. Loved the shrimp appetizer, but don't forget the nachos! They are to die for! Will return!

I came here to have lunch with a girlfriend. I ordered the kale salad with chicken. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was seasoned just right. The salad had a great mustard, creamy taste that made the somewhat crunchier kale taste great. The menu is not extensive, but it looked like everyone was enjoying their meals. The atmosphere... More

Lightly crisped and perfectly cooked. Topped with thinly shaved almonds. I also tried my wife's pork chop and it was excellent as well. She had sweet potato tots as a side and they were quite a treat!

We've lived in the Columbia area for decades, but had never even heard of this restaurant. (We do remember when it was Sachs Sixth Ave.) We got there about 5:15 pm on a Saturday, and there was only one other group eating. By the time we left at 7:00, the place was full, but nobody standing in line waiting for... More
