Nestled deep in an office park surrounded by buildings gives Nottinghams the perfect cover for fun. Parking is no problem. They have a greeter/security at the door which i thought was cool and a bar dedicated to keno players...nice touch! The place is huge with restaurant seating, a huge bar, pool tables in the rear, and an outdoor area dressed... More

It's a meat market with very little meat most people I know would be interested in. Singles types only. LOTS of cheesy car salesmen types lurking about. More than a few obvious drunks scattered about, need I say more?

We went to Nottingham's on a football Sunday and they were ready for a crowd, but there were only a handful of people there for a while. Even with multiple games running, it seemed very quiet despite great drink prices and good wait staff.

Waiting for someone to service the table for 25 minutes and finally had to place the order at the bar. The sad thing is that the place is not even busy. All the staff seems to be too busy on their phones than paying attention to the surroundings!!

Great neighborhood hang out. Grab a table, have a drink, and relax. The prices are reasonable and you won't be sorry.

It's a very standard dive bar -- it appeals to some and not to others. It can get pretty busy, and service can suffer as a result. But if you like dive bars, this is the place to check out.

I have been going to this place for years. It is pretty strange how growing up in an area and coming back years later makes you realize why you left in the first place. This establishment serves its purpose as far as I am concerned.

We came here for a going away celebration and I didn't know what to expect. Now I know there is a type of divey bar scene in Columbia that every once in a while you need. Service was okay. Drinks weren't awesome but okay. The next time I come back I'll spend time outside on the outdoor bar.

Finding the place first time out was a bit difficult. Visited several times for after work social gatherings. Each time I noted that MANY other work groups do the same. Very crowded, very loud location. Food and drinks are nothing to brag about and the wait for anything is excessive. There were a few better points however... Outdoor bar was... More

Lived in Columbia ten years ago and this place was ok, was always open and was a decent spot to get a pint. Most recently went back in the fall and the service, food, and atmosphere were all dreadful. Seems to have just gotten worse over the years.
