I bought a gift card for a couple for their wedding. When the couple went to use the card, the restaurant had closed. I called and asked for a refund but they refused to give back my money. They suggested we go to their new restaurant in Narberth. If I wanted to eat in Narberth, I would have purchased a... More

I had a great dinner there years ago, then went back. It's got good solid food, unless you are a foody and expect a slightly better execution and menu. It was great when I didn't know anything about food. The first couple of times the food and apps were great. The service is really good too. Worth a try if... More

We ate here for our anniversary, which fell on a weekday. The place was completely empty (we ate fairly early -5:00) . We had the place to ourselves.The filet mignon was delicious! I enjoyed the lovely decor and historical aspects of the place. Service was great. We will definitely be back!

The Columbia has been a fixture in Phoenixville for years and the building reminds me of a New Orleans style building. They have a patio on the side of the building that has a cabana bar along with tables/chairs to enjoy a meal or drinks outside during the summer. Its a pleasureable atmosphere. Friendly staff, good drinks. Try the buffalo... More

I used to live in Phoenixville a long time ago and this place was then called the Columbia Hotel. I had many fine meals and quaffed more than a few libations in this establishment. Indeed the Comubia was once a hotel that in its prime served the business travelers who visited this thriving steel town during its heyday. Today, the... More
