This is my favorite place to eat, drink beer and relax with friends. The price is also reasonable. We are vegetarians who also eat fish and love a good selection of local beer. They have a great salmon and turn entree, great pizza and really good vegetarian burger. I like brown ales or dark beer and they have great draft... More

Good time at a very popular eating establishment. Food, brew and service is top notch in my opinion. Outdoor seating is a plus. Would definitely eat here again.

Our waiter was horrible! We arrived within 30 minutes of opening so you would think that we would have been treated well. Nope. He took our drink order and it was well over 10 minutes before we received water, tea, and a beer sampler. Our appetizers arrived in a timely manner and were incredible but did our waiter know this?... More

My wife, grandson and I ate here a couple of days ago. Being from New Mexico, where green chile is king, I had to try their green Chile beer, it was excellent. My wife and I had a warm Romain salad that was much better than it sounds. Our grandson had a turkey sandwich. All was excellent and the service... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Columbia! Delicious food, reasonable prices. I always get a burger with sweet potatoes fries and I'm never disappointed. Every time I've gone there (which has been during typical dinner hours during the week and lunch times during the weekend) there has been a wait time so plan ahead.

Was in Columbia on business and upon recommendations from friends and hotel staff, I went to Flat Branch. It was a gorgeous evening so chose to sit out on the patio. The patio was very large with several trees and great landscaping that created an overhang. Just a great atmosphere. I ordered the Honey Wheat beer since I arrived in... More

The menu was diverse and they offered plenty of brews. Burgers were awesome and my wife said she never had better crab cakes. Outdoor dining was shady and pleasant. Service was very good.

Excellent! Loves the chokes and cheese!! Amazing! The pizza was excellent too. I got a hamburger that was good, but not the greatest. The beer was good as well. I loved the Hefeweizen the flavor was wonderful with notes of banana!! I will definitely return!!

Thank feikertfam4

Gold Medal winner for Best Overall Restaurant the last six years, Inside Columbia Magazine Best of Columbia readers poll!

Flat Branch Pub & Brewing opened its doors on April 18, 1994 in historic downtown Columbia Missouri. The pub gets its name from a nearby creek which was the water source for Columbia's first settlers. Flat Branch was Columbia's first brewery since 1841. The pub occupies a 1927 brick warehouse with a curved, barrel-trussed roof that was once a Hudson car dealership.

We offer a diverse menu as well as award-winning hand-crafted beers on tap. Enjoy your stay in the upscale industrial setting of our restaurant, on our spacious outdoor patio, or belly up to Columbia's largest bar. Our fresh handmade food compliments our brews while still being delicious enough to stand on its own. Try traditional pub favorites like Catfish and Chips or Bratwurst and Kraut, or perhaps our signature Charbroiled Romaine Salad. Enjoy your meal with our in-house baked breads and desserts. After dinner, sip one of our many single malt scotches or small batch bourbons may be just the thing to wrap up an excellent evening.

The managers and staff at Flat Branch Pub & Brewing are committed to providing the best food, beer, service and value in the Midwest.
