I feel like I need to write 3 or 4 reviews to say adequately praise 116. Their brunch is the best in town. Their dinner is the best value in town.

So says Warren Buffett, who would love 116 State Street. It's easily one of the best places to eat in the Columbia area, but it's incredibly affordable. Small, but with personality and service that defies its size. Get there early on a weekend or you'll be waiting for a seat. The hashbrowns are legendary, but it's more than just brunch;... More

116 is by far the best kept secret in Columbia/West Columbia for an outstanding dining experience. It is hands down my favorite place to go for a delicious meal. The atmosphere is great and the wine selection is excellent! If price is a concern, don't worry...116 is quite reasonable.

This is way more than a great little coffee shop and wine bar. They use locally sourced foods and the menu always offers delicious specials. Great staff and atmosphere.

Yes, it's a small restaurant but the service and food is mighty good! The menu is quite varied and there were lots of options for vegetarians. I had the samosas and the dipping sauce was something quite wonderful! Also had the Mediterranean plate which was great too. Wonderful wine selection and lots of amazing combinations for the entrees. Also tried... More

I was surprised that I'd never heard of this restaurant in my own home time. The service was great. The menu well selected. And the food was wonderful. Can't wait to go back and try other items on the menu. The watermelon salad was fab.

I've eaten at a lot of places in Columbia, but nothing compares to 116. Phenomenal for brunch or dinner any day. All their specials are always fantastic. Incredibly inexpensive too for the quality and quantity of the meals.

The hostess made me feel very welcomed from the moment I walked in the door. The food, drinks and service were exceptional and definitely worth the wait. So many great choices on the brunch menu . . . it was hard to choose and I look forward to return visits to check out some of their other selections.

For brunch, try the potatoes and add the sausage or get the one with the duck. Holy cow you will not be disappointed. Dinner is always great - try a drink special.

This small, bustling restaurant offers a very eclectic mix of top-notch food at affordable prices with fabulous service. All of the food is very fresh. Every item on the menu seems to be very unique. I literally wanted to try every single thing. They also have a much larger selection of wine, beer, and mixed drinks than most restaurants of... More
