This is a family owned group of restaurants in the Columbia, SC area. The menu is largely Grecian and the recipes are flavorful. Zorba's is a good place to go for a family gathering or lunch with friends. Try it on a Friday or Saturday night - it's fun.

One of my employees recommended Zorba's so I decided to give it a try. I will say the interior is interesting but very clean. The food was good and the prices can't be beat. The waitress I had was top-notch, never had to wait on anything and was very personable.

The food is very good here. You get plenty. If you leave hungry it is your own fault. Great place for girl's lunch.

On my recent visit to Zorba’s I was served a blackened flounder filet that was so small, overcooked, salty, and outrageously spicy-hot that I would have sent it back if I could have done it without embarrassing the guy who was paying for my lunch. There was no covering of any sort on our table, the surface of which remained... More

Thank you for dining with us, and we hope you will try us again. Your review is a perfect opportunity for us to bring up a point that is very important, and that is to remind the public that we do business in the restaurant, not on these sites. Most if not all of the negative reviews on this and... More

We have been going to Zorbas for 30 years and have never had a bad meal. The eggplant is particularly good, the Greek potatoes are the best anywhere and the salad is yummy.. It is not gourmet but if you want a good meal for a fair price, you cannot miss with Zorbas.

We eat at Zorba's fairly often and have yet had a meal we did not enjoy. If you're looking for something glitzy, this isn't the place, but if you want good solid food with ample portions and don't want it bland, by all means give Zorba's a try. Their Greek Salad is so huge my husband and I will often... More

We went here as family.. a group of 5 adults and 2 kids. The food was just average and service was poor. I would not recommend this restaurant if you looking for a new family dinner experience.

Thank you for dining with us and we are sorry you did not enjoy your visit. We find it kind of baffling though that nothing was said to management at the time. It would have been a great help to us, if something was amiss with either your service or food, to have had you share this with a manager... More

I live in Columbia and this is my favorite restaurant in the city. There blackened Salmon is the best thing on the menu. I have never been to a place where you can get such a large portion of great fish for only $16. I would definately recommend.

In my opinion, Zorba's was once a Columbia Icon. Unfortunately, while it is still a popular place to eat, it is not a pleasant place to eat. The food is good, portions good, staff is average...the problem is the condition. i am not sure how they get the health ratings they get. The last three times I have been there... More

What a shame that tripadvisor has allowed this 'review' to remain on this site, it has been sitting here now for a month and a half, and what a shame if somebody actually believed this stuff and chose not to visit Zorba's because of it. Just a shame. What would make a person say these things? To intentionally seem to... More

Jimmys special pizza is great. Nightly specials never disappoint. Something for every appetite. We have been eating here since it opened. Always large portions, with good food and service. Family dinner last evening was no exception. Large groups, small groups, families, and couples are accommodated with ease. If you go there often, you'll see the same families eating there again,...
