Where can you walk into a local bar, order a great craft beer and have your choice of fantastic fish specials, delicious hamburgers, perfect chicken wings and nice people? This is where the locals hang out, for a reason.

This bar/pub has been on the corner of Columbia and Lockwood in downtown covington for years. It attracts a big local crowd, sometimes spilling out the door on Fri and Sat nights (live bands then). Repeat customers (so many come to know your name). Very large selection of bigs on tap and many bottled offerings. Friendly and knowledgeable bar tenders.... More

Stopped here to break up the drive from Tallahassee to Baton Rouge and meet a couple friends for a drink. The bartender seemed frustrated by me when the first three beers I asked for were beers they didn't have. When I then pointed out to him that they were on the beer list, he got upset because the beer list... More

Cold beer and great po boys! A local's favorite for lunch. Eat at the bar, a table, or a high-bar table. The owner Steve is always around and makes sure the food is fresh and served hot. Turns into a music haven on week-ends. Party City!

This place used to be great, had good bartenders, good prices, good food and good drinks. Unfortunately it has gone straight downhill. Prices of food and drinks have gone straight up while other place's prices have remained stable, the good bartenders have all left and the ones there now don't care about anyone they serve, the food is now just...

After a tiring day of driving 5 hours and touring the Abita brewery, I was ready for a meal and a few more beers. The Columbia St Tap Room fit the bill perfectly. There are about 30 taps and an equal number of bottled beers. I drank local, trying a few from the Covington Brewery. The crowd at the bar... More

Your average bar and restaurant with mostly bar food (plus specials). It has an old timey feel to it, has a stage for music groups in the evening. Looks dated, but it was clean. Service was excellent.

Great neighborhood bar with great food and a nice atmosphere. This is not your average bar food. Try the burgers, salads, and wings. Extensive beer selection.

One of the best, large burgers in the area which compliments the significant numbers of beers available.

Located in the Columbia Street Tap Room building, this is an elegant place for a great meal. The menu varies depending on what fresh fish and vegetables are available. Our party enjoyed a number of fine dishes the night we ate there including swordfish and baby drum. Good drinks are available to accompany your meal. Not a huge place. Service... More
