I have been to Vella’s several times and have never been disappointed. The food is great, especially the Vella’s prime burger. The chicken tenders and quesadillas are also excellent. But, what I really like about this place is the happy hour. It’s one of the best in the Columbia area. You won’t find better prices during happy hour anywhere else... More

My cousin and I came here to eat crablegs. They have a special on all you can eat crablegs on Mondays. When we got there it was already a full house. So upon waiting for a table we sat at the bar. The atmosphere was very mellow and relaxing. I love crablegs so I am looking forward to returning.

Reasonable prices on beer and food. The selection isn't bad at all. This is a place to go when you want a burger or some wings and you want to wash it down with a pitcher of beer.
