This is a hip little restaurant. Not very big, but big enough. The crowd is a mix of hipsters, families, couples... etc. And nobody walks away disappointed. The food is eclectic. They take old standards and put their own twist on them. Little twists like batter-frying banana pepper rings in with the calamari for a little zing, or using pepper-jack... More

Food was excellent, but a little noisy in the resturant. I had grilled chicken and corn fritters. Other in my group had pork chops.

Enjoyed a Sunday night dinner. The service was pleasant and efficient. Food - awesome. The sweet potato and corn salsa tacos Rocked!

Plus - 2 good salads, great clam chowder, 2 excellent pasta dishes, tacos, wine, beer and coffee = $75. We... More

Coley's has been one of our favorite places to enjoy drinks and appetizers...until tonight. We ordered calamari and nachos from the app menu, and the grilled salmon spinach salad from the dinner menu. Also ordered a carafe of sangria. $14 was the menu price. Everything was fine until we noticed that the calamari seemed to be banana peppers, lightly breaded... More

We were looking to try something new in Columbia and we found Coley's on the internet. There were three in our party and had a nice table near the window. After ordering wine from a nice selection, we sat and visited for quite a while. We were not rushed nor neglected. Our server was new and struggled with opening a... More

Food and drinks all good. Nachos are huge! Beef stroganoff was yummy. Friendly but non-intrusive waitress. Families mingled with people on dates. Comfortable.

In columbia there are over 600 restaurants to choose from. We like to always go to Murray's, but the crowd, noise, and wait is a negative. Coley's has excellent food and a dining area to seat about 50. I enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and delicious food. Plates run around $12-$15.
