Fine dining place about a block from Main Street and the state capitol complex
We had tried a couple of fine dining places on prior trips to Columbia. We had not eaten here, though, and it was just a short walk from our hotel.

Great food, great service, great experience
We had a large party of 10 and we were accommodated as if we were a VIP party of 4. The service was professional, friendly, attentive, and accurate. The food matched.

This place is top tier and a must return. If you’re not interested in sitting at the high top tables (for 2) next to the bar, reservations are highly recommended.

Had a wonderful experience in June 2023 at Cola’s. My husband and I showed up without a reservation on a Friday evening for dinner around 7. There weren’t any regular tables immediately available but was seated at a high top table in the bar area.

Cola's is awesome all around. The food, service, and ambiance. I have been here several times and have been more impressed each time. My goto is the lamb chops.

I came here for a group dinner and we were seated in the back room.
Their events menu is quite creative and I got to try a few things that were new to me.

Went out for a date night and this place definitely fits the bill. Food was reasonably priced, but a little more upscale. We had the fried deviled eggs (good, but probably wouldn't order again) and the bbq pork egg rolls.
