We ordered the steak and shrimp special. The steak was wonderful. The fried shrimp was okay. The portions were big most people took home a box. I would highly recommend this resturant.

Ben and Mrs Too decided to have lunch in Columbia on our way to Lancaster this trip, and selected Union Station Grill from TripAdvisor listings. The restaurant was easy to find, located on an attractive corner lot. Ben ordered his usual old fashion and a sandwich appearing on the menu as a Red Eye, a combination of thin sliced roast... More

There's no reason not to rate this with 5 stars. The atmosphere, service and food were outstanding. Would love to return for a couple of cold ones. My colleague and I visited for lunch. He had the Reuben while I had the Havana with a side salad. The Havana was similar to what we know as a Cuban Sandwich with... More

A friend recommended this restaurant to me so my wife and I decided to go. I'm so glad that we did. Their burgers are fantastic. They were cooked as we ordered. They were very delicious. They have a great bar as well.

The help is friendly and welcoming. You feel like you are at the neighbor's back yard for a cookout...except that the cooking here is a lot better than what my neighbors can do!

This quaint eatery in Columbia, Pa Hamas everything you're looking for for "nice" food, great service, cold draught beer. Columbia's best burgers and salads, home cut fries, soups and amazing wings. Dine inside or out. Prices that fit the quality meal you'll enjoy.

We were excited to try the crab cakes for a date night. We chose to dine indoors due to approaching inclement weather. We sat in the back of the dining room near the kitchen door. We both ordered the crab cakes platter and a crab dip appetizer. The appetizer was good, warm and a generous portion. Unfortunately, the evening went... More

Food was mediocre at best but the service was terrible. We won't be back here. Don't waste your time or money here.

We like trying new places and this was on our list so we made it there y'day on m'cycles. Street parking was sufficient but probably be an issue I guess. Outside bar and seating was nice, not too much traffic on street to fume you out. I will say I was surprised at the prices. $4.25 for a btl of... More

Came here for a drink and dinner and nearly closed down the place. The bartender was chill and super friendly. We ended up watching tv by the end of the night. Ordered the cheeseburger wrap and it was so filling.
