Nice Find

We were looking to try something new in Columbia and we found Coley's on the internet. There were three in our party and had a nice table near the window. After ordering wine from a nice selection, we sat and visited for quite a while. We were not rushed nor neglected. Our server was new and... read more

Food and drinks all good. Nachos are huge! Beef stroganoff was yummy. Friendly but non-intrusive waitress. Families mingled with people on dates. Comfortable.

In columbia there are over 600 restaurants to choose from. We like to always go to Murray's, but the crowd, noise, and wait is a negative. Coley's has excellent food and a dining area to seat about 50. I enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and delicious food. Plates run around $12-$15.

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
