Located in a lovingly restored 1930's RC Cola bottling plant, Cola's is a "casual" fine dining bar/restaurant specializing in seafood, steaks and other culinary creations influenced by a broad range of ethnic cooking. There is an emphasis on fresh ingredients and locally grown food where possible.
Weather permitting, two garage doors open up the restaurant to views of the Statehouse and allow our guests to enjoy the bustle of downtown Columbia. Cola's boast a 40 foot long bar, equipped with a rolling ladder to access our extensive wine selection. If preferred, try one of our house cocktails or choose a brew from our large selection of bottled beers.
Cola's has ample room to host your private functions in either of the two private dining rooms, seating up to as many as 50. Large booths adorn the main dining room and there is table seating for small and large parties.

A birthday celebration started with an appetizer special, Oysters Rockefeller and the Blood Orange Martini. Both were delicious! Our waiter Cameron was very helpful with menu suggestions and descriptions. I had the Braised Beef, wow, so tender and flavorful with an amazing sauce. My husband had the Pork Tenderloin, also very tender and flavorful. For dessert we split the toffee cheesecake. Overall, this was one of the best meals I've had in Columbia! Food and service were perfect.

Fantastic food and venue. We had the braised beef and the Chicken Rojo and both did not disappoint. We will be back.

Our first experience at Cola's was stellar. Everything we tried was delicious. Our server was knowledgeable about ingredients, preparation and flavors. Her table service was spectacular. Can't wait to go back and try more items on the menu.

Been several times now for both business and friends getting together. We absolutely love their food, atmosphere, and service is always outstanding! The friends and business dinner guests we've taken here also love the food. And if you're a wine drinker, this is the largest wine list we've seen at a restaurant, and we have traveled quite a bit across the US.

Food and service was great as always. We were seated in a small room beside two large groups so the environment was rather noisy this trip.

Thought we’d try this place for our 40th anniversary dinner. Heard good things from friends and coworkers. Turned out they were right. Great service, great food. This is now one of our favorites.
