The entrance is quite welcoming through the patio entrance on the parking lot side of the building. The full menu has some unique items. Samples of their beers are available. Portions are generous. Waitresses and servers were really nice and helpful. I would definitely go...back.More

Having moved to Southern Oregon, we missed this place. We were so fond of Flat Branch that we opened up our own pubs out in Oregon. After a long bout of Covid-19 cabin fever, we came back to Columbia for a quick visit, and we...met some friends here. We had great service, great beer and great food.More

I was in town for the weekend and our group went to Flat branch for dinner. Great atmosphere, lots of beer choices and the food was good. Great for a group.

1st visit out anywhere for a year. Food quality and service always good. Tables properly spaced due to Covid19. Good visit. Recommended!

My most recent experience was disappointing. I absolutely love burnt ends so thought I would try the ones here. Basically large chunks of flavorless leather is what I received. Even the bbq sauce, which I had to ask for, could not save the dish. Basically...a decent place to grab a beer however I suggest eating elsewhere.More

Hello. Are you sure you are reviewing the correct restaurant? We do not have burnt ends on our menu, and never have had them.

My first visit to FBPB. I had the chicken wings and onion rings from the appetizer menu for my actual entree. The wings were perfectly prepared; crispy, moist and seasoned very well. They were tasty! It would be hard for me not to order them...again if we ever visit FBPB again. My spouse had the brown sugared pork chop, grilled veggies and applesauce. He didn’t care for the steamed veggies as they were not really seasoned. Everyone has had the bland-like steamed veggies and that is what these were. The pork chop was very good and applesauce looked like grandma had just made it fresh from the orchard. I had an Amaretto sour. It is a huge drink. And a bit much much unless you are gathering with friends for drinks, then you are on your way to a fun filled night. Upon delivery, the drink was very bitter and sour; no real amaretto taste at all. I requested they add some ameretto. He brought me two shots and it was perfect for the large glass (an extra $4.50 charge). Dale had a dirty martini with gin. He said it was very good. We both had unsweetened tea. It was ok. I would go with fountain drink, water or coffee next time. Our meal was around $63. Not bad for what we ordered and it appears to be an avg cost for dinner in Columbia. Very easy to find for newbies in the area. Very tasteful sitting and the patio area looked like real fun! The inside seating was nice, comfy and industrial. Very clean. They have a very large bar area. Would recommend.More

Excellent!! No other way to describe the service and food. Everyone in our party was very happy with their choices. I had the macaroni and cheese with ham at suggestion of our server. By far, the best macaroni and cheese I have ever had at...a restaurant. Anyone visiting Columbia MO, must make Flat Branch Pub & Brewing a dinner destination.More

Great place for outside dining during these Covid days. Service was good. Food is consistently good. I selected the grilled Romaine salad with salmon rather than chicken. It was very flavorful and well seasoned. My grandson had the keto salmon and broccoli plate. He said...it was delicious as well. I also enjoyed a glass of my favorite brew, honey wheat. Definitely a step above the usual pub fare and can't beat the patio for a nice outside dining experience.More

Met up with some friends for a mid day lunch (3pm) on a Saturday and the place was packed. We were told an hour wait but got in about 20 minutes. Great beer selection; totally covid prepared. We ate inside but no one was near...us. Great service and menu selections. Have been going here for years and will continue.More

We don't currently have a call ahead wait list. The best way to handle something like this is for some of your party to come down to the pub and get on the wait list, then call in the rest as you get close to being seated... More

Sorry, but Columbia health ordinances prohibit animals, except service animals, in places where food is served, including patios.
