Waterfront dining at its finest! Family-owned and operated for 115 years, Columbia has earned acclaim for its old-world charm and award-winning Spanish/Cuban cuisine. Casual attire is fine, but we don’t allow sleeveless shirts on men in the dining room. Choose a table looking out onto the radiant blue waters of the Intracoastal Waterway from the Mediterranean dining room, or experience the casual atmosphere from our outdoor deck on the water. Join us for century-old family recipes like Paella a la Valenciana, Roast Pork a la Cubana and fresh seafood specialties. Sample a fine Spanish wine like Montecillo or Campillo. We are a sister to the Columbia in Tampa's Ybor City, founded in 1905. Children's menu available. Open 365 days a year, including all holidays.

    This was our second evening in a row dining at Columbia; we loved it so much the first night we came back with our son so he could experience it too! Milton, our server, couldn’t have been better — he had the training of an old-world fine dining waiter, who has the timing and the attentiveness down to a science. You just don’t experience that much anymore. Each dish was expertly prepared. Can’t wait to return.

    We had the best experience at this restaurant, our server Jess was unbelievable. Jess was very attentive. With six hungry and thirsty guys and all the other customers she was serving, we never waited for anything. Before our glasses were empty Jess was there filling them up. Great job Jess.
