Well after this evening's experience, I won't be going back here. Things started out badly when the server managed to spill salad dressing over me and my husband. She then somehow managed to get more dressing on my mother-in-law. The salads came out and were unbelievably salty. We have eaten here before and they have never been this bad. And... More

My husband and I just returned home from the worst Valentine's dinner to date. I know on Valentine's Day you can expect a wait but tonight was ridiculous!! We waited a little over one hour but there were many empty tables all around during our wait. They called two couples that came in after us before us because they stated... More

Call to see if they excepted reservations on the week in for a party of 12, which they said they did not. But to come in early before the full party gets there and ask for seating for 12 and should not be a problem. We arrived 45 minutes early ahead of the rest of the party to arrange the... More

I called this restaurant to make a reservation because we had people in town who had requested steak. We had gone to this restaurant before and actually had instances where the food was not good but the service was great. On my last trip before this we were given one of our meals free and the manager suggested we give... More

The place was nice. The waitress was lovely, the crowd freindly and they take care of their regulars you can tell. My steak was good, the rolls were good, the burger and broccoli casserole were average. Nice atmosphere, I would have sat at the bar if a knew better.

We ate at Columbia steak house last night for the first time. It was a Sunday evening, and we didn't get there till around 8pm. We were greeted by Jason at the door, who proceeded to seat us in a room beside a fireplace. We had the room to ourselves. We had cocktails, which were not disappointing. We shared the... More

Went to Columbias for a work luncheon where the food was served buffet style. The salad had brown lettuce throughout and the tomatoes were not ripe. On the buffet was Steak tips, grilled chicken, Broccoli Casserole, Green beans, Corn pudding and potatoes. The waitress served our food on our freezing cold plates. This room was absolutely freezing, had to wear... More

As we walked into the restaurant, we were told to pick a seat. As this was our first time here we walked past the bar into the dinning area, it was like walking back into the sixties and we were the only ones there (Tues. Evening 6:45). Ordered the Nighthawk, their special steak covered in garlic butter, it was okay... More

Maybe it was because I went on a Monday night and it was rainy, but I was pretty underwhelmed.The steaks were cooked properly and seasoned well and the baked potatoes were large and delicious, however the bread is hollow and bland; caesar dressing tasted sour; rice was undercooked. The service was good however a little slow. The host was welcoming... More

Our waiter Tely was excellent! We both had the 8oz NY steak! The dinner came with 2 sides! I highly recommend the twice baked potato and the cornbread pudding! Delicious! The side salad was just so so!
