We absolutely loved it! We were there for a birthday/anniversary dinner and it was simply perfect. The wait staff was spot on and the food was incredibly delicious. The ambiance was perfect. We can’t wait to go back again.

Our first experience with Brunch at CI proved to be outstanding overall - Noah supplied great service, the brunch format is a winner as were all of the individual preparations. Our meal consisted of a well dressed salad, fresh cut fruit, our two well executed entrees (Filet and Eggs + Shrimp & Grits) and the family style plate of crispy bacon, breakfast potatoes and sausages. From greeting to departure, we very much enjoyed the options and delivery. And, for those who care - and everyone should - they observed all Covid protocols.

Awesome experience. We started with the meat and cheese board which was a nice variety and good deal. We all had sandwiches which were also delicious and filling. We sampled a few cocktails which also hit the spot. Our server Joe was pleasant and professional. We dined outside on the patio which felt very safe. They are definitely taking all the necessary precautions during this tough time. We hope to visit again soon before it gets too cold for outside dining.

Quiet because of the time we are and lower occupancy of COVID social distancing, but the waitress was amazingly friendly and engaging, food was fresh without flaw, and the ambience and decor added to the experience. We'll be back!

First...........the Food was GREAT!
We were seated RIGHT next to the kitchen. Too distracting.
Our server was nice, but repeatedly reached over plates to put items down.
We had to ask for water and drink refills each time.
Just not what we have come to expect from Columbus Inn.

My husband and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary at Columbus Inn. We sat on the patio. Tables were adequately spaces apart for social distancing. All staff members were wearing masks. Guests wore masks as they moved around the restaurant but we were able to remove masks when we were seated. The Summer Garden cocktail I had was devine. Our server was great. He even brought us a complimentary appetizer courtesy of the chef for our anniversary. The food was the BEST! I highly recommend the Columbus Inn for a date night.

Great outdoor dining experience. The server even found my phone in the midst of a downpour. The hostess offered to bring me a bag of rice - hoping to save the phone from damage. Really above and beyond! Smashed burger is a must try!

We couldn’t have asked for a great dining experience! We were promptly greeted, seated and served. We started with the cheese board which was carefully curated to compliment each other. The avocado/seafood crostino over toasted sourdough bread excited the palate favorably. We ordered the MBFG salad and the seafood cobb salad which were portioned just right to hit the spot. The courses were served at a comfortable pace, not rushed and not a moment too late. There’s a wide selection of wines to our liking. Overall, Columbus Inn Restaurant provided a pleasurable table d’hote - a reason good enough for a recommendation!

Our first time at The Columbus Inn and we wished we’d found this gem sooner! Beautiful outdoor seating area, lively indoor bar area, and the food was fresh and delicious. We had the tomato mozzarella salad and crab and shrimp cocktail to share. Both were fresh and very well prepared. The seafood Cobb was out of this world delicious and my husband tried the seared tuna with fried pineapple rice and said it was one of the best tuna dishes he’s had. All staff were in masks, very attentive and it was clean so no worries there. Highly recommend!
