Columbia Restaurant - SandKey
Casual attire is fine, but we don’t allow sleeveless shirts on men.
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," Filet Mignon "Columbia," & 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.
We have never been disappointed dining at the Columbia Restaurant. Food is wonderful and service is excellent.
As usual the food and service where good. The back ground music was overbearing.
Amazing dinner and sangria. Our server was fantastic! It is a bit pricey but worth the splurge. We enjoyed the pampano, paquillo peppers and a seafood pasta dish. No room for dessert!
A delicious meal and excellent service
Columbia Sand Key is always a favorite for wonderful food. My husband loves the seafood dinners and I always order the 1905 salad as my entree. The bread is delicious and the service is very good.
This restaurant has amazing food and service! We go as a family to eat there everytime we come to the area. The service is fantastic and we have had a great server named Stephan twice. He always takes the best care of us and is just a terrific person all around. Would recommend to anyone who is in the Sand Key area near Clearwater Florida!
Always a good experience at Columbia.
We had not visited in a bit and it was better then ever! Mariah was our sever and did a great job making sure we had plenty of what we needed at all times. Lots of staff and management on hand to make sure everything ran smooth. Ordered Paella’s that were better then when what we had in Spain last month! More tapas then we could eat and any meal there is not compete without their 1905!!! Too full for dessert, but will try and save room next visit.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening from our excellent server, James Costello, to our delicious meal. This has become one of favorite places to dine whenever we come to town!
Always great food and fabulous service- we enjoy both locations whenever we go. This location is more casual and quite enjoyable
Always a fun experience
Wonderful authentic Spanish food! From the loaves of Cuban bread to the dessert, everything was well prepared and exceptional
Very attentive service. Great food and portions size was just right. A must for dinner when in Florida.
We went for our anniversary and were not disappointed! Reservations through Open Table, and mentioned it was our anniversary. Lovely table with water view! Excellent sangria, prepared table side. All of our food was delicious, and the service was excellent! Authentic Spanish cuisine, well prepared. Only downside is that it’s a bit noisy, especially when there is young children.
Food, atmosphere and service were outstanding, the drinks and salads made tableside were a treat, and the view was perfect. Great experience to finish off our vacation.
Outstanding experience, staff and especially the Paella. I wish I was back in Sevilla. 👍
Good view and food very nice waitress had out of town company and she really enjoyed it
My employer and his wife were in Florida for a wedding, from Ohio, and suggested we get together. Friends suggested the Columbia for an excellent dining experience that was close to their hotel. We truly enjoyed the atmosphere, the service and the excellent cuisine. This is the place to go for dinner in Clearwater.
Great view and great food. you can order whatever you want , it's all tremendous and authentic.
This was our first time and we totally enjoyed it. I want to especially give a great thank you to Stephan for his great service. And the food was marvelous!
Awesome food and service. Will come back next time we’re in the area.
I have been going here for 40 years. I have never been disappointed. Consistently great,
We stumbled upon Columbia near our conference hotel and had heard good things from friends who had been to the area. We had a wonderful waiter, waterside dining and delicious food!
Food was amazing. We went with the family and had no idea it would be as good as it was. The staff was incredible, made the whole experience very upscale. We went with a pile of kids, probably not the typical clientele and they treated us all very well. Could not have been happier with the whole experience.
Ivana did a fantastic job, I had her select my entree and it was spot on. It was one of the best seafood dishes that I have had in a long time. It was a seafood marisco and she subbed the pasta for yellow rice. The shrimp, scallops and mussels were fantastic.
The place is really good, service was outstanding, the view from the patio is very nice. The food was good specially the Tapas.
Always a great experience.
Wonderful dinner , dessert, and wine. Cafe con leche was delicious. service was exemplary! would recommend!
The scallops, Cuban sandwich and key lime pie, bread pudding, and flan were good. Two salads were served on warm plates; it was like eating a hot salad. I was looking forward to the paella; it was just ok. It certainly didn't warrant a $24 price. Nothing was 'exceptional'. The service and staff were all very good.
Energetic atmosphere, beautiful décor, great views. Food is excellent, service is top notch.
Lousy food (read: dry, tasteless, peasant food), noisy, no parking. Mediocrity (and overpricing) at it's best. Location was great but a poor excuse for Cubano dining.. My first and LAST visit.
awesome!!!!! fabulous place to eat, sitting on the deck is great, would definitely would recommend to friends/family!!!!!
What an incredible meal! And a breathtaking view doesn’t even begin to describe how gorgeous it was looking out on the water while eating that famous salad! And the Cuban plate had to be at least 5 lbs of food. I was so impressed by how attentive the service was and do your self a favor: get a pitcher of the red sangria! You won’t be disappointed!!!
Service and food were fantastic
A little noisy on a busy night
Amazing place for a birthday surprise for Mom.
We love the one where we live, in St Augustine. We always go there for special occasions. So it was great to be able to celebrate Fathers Day at the same restaurant, but different location. Love the waterfront view and the waiter was so nice and accommodating. But my only negatives were the random people walking by in bathing suits staring, or the smokers standing right by the waterfront view. I'm sure that can't change with how the setup is with the jet skiing place right there, but it kind of ruins the ambiance and the $ meals you are paying for.
Make sure you ask to be seated with Adam. Best server we’ve ever had there. Made my Fathers Day dinner even better.
Very classy restaurant. Our favorite restaurant for special occasions. The food is always delicious. Service is top botch. A bit pricey.
Very nice Father's Day dinner. I treated my daughter and her father to dinner and everyone was extremely pleased with their meal. The server was very good. The food was excellent as always. The sangria is delicious; however, the pitcher was old, cracked and broken along the top. Not very pleasant to pour from but the sangria is delicious. My reservation was ready when we arrived and my special request to sit by the window was granted. Overall it was a delicious, very pleasant experience. I always enjoy visiting the Columbia. I've never been disappointed! Thank you
