We have gone here many times for their breakfast specials: lunch and supper, not so much. But. Enough to offer a review. The restaurant has been here for a lonngg time, but has been updated through the years so it is not dumpy inside. There is room for large parties and plenty of parking. Mostly tables but some counter seats.... More

I recently moved to Columbia & decided to try the Columbia Family Restaurant. The Chicken Cordon Bleu was pretty decent. As the time approached 8:00 PM I noticed that the place was just about empty, so I asked the waitress for more coffee with which to finish my meal. (This was at 7:50.) "There is no coffee left; would you... More

We decided to stop here for a late breakfast. The service was fast and friendly. A family kind of place. The food was great. It was nice and quiet. The prices were very good.

My boyfriend and I recently ate here on a trip to Columbia, PA. We were staying at a Bed and Breakfast nearby and were unpleasantly surprised to find that most of the restaurants (excluding fast food like Domino's and Subway) were closed on Sundays. After walking around for a while and striking out 4-5 times, we stumbled up to the... More

I ordered the lunch special chicken parm sandwich which came with a little bag of chips, a soup, and a pudding. The chicken was one of those frozen breaded chicken patties you can buy at the store. I ordered French onion as my soup choice and the waitress said "there's no bread or cheese in the soup...is that ok?" That... More

Nothing fancy here, but it was decent for Sunday lunch, the server was helpful, and the food was average. I couldn't find a lot of places to eat in Columbia, so I appreciated this one.

Although we live in town, my family's first visit was also our last. I had a taco salad which consisted of a burned shell filled with flavorless meat, soggy lettuce, and soft tomatoes. Son had chicken nuggets which were so greasy as to be inedible, and mashed potatoes. The potatoes were clearly homemade (not instant) and tasted good, but were... More

I ordered a philly steak sandwich. What came was some some slivers of thin beef on a hamburger roll - not want I expected at all especially since I came from Philly. The 2 people with me were also disappointed in their lunches.
