I hadn't been to the Melting Pot in several years and it was a totally wonderful experience. The layout and decor of the restaurant is perfect. The food was delicious. Our waiter, Jason, was outstanding. He has years of experience working at the Melting Pot and it showed.

About the restaurant
SakiTumi boasts an authentic menu, with both fresh sushi (we have tuna overnighted from Hawaii) and flavorful grill items. Located in the heart of the Vista, we are down a quaint alleyway in a historic building that used to house the production of Model T fords.

Awarded "Best Sushi Restaurant" by the readers of the State newspaper, we continue our ethics of quality by ordering fresh, #1 ahi tuna along with salmon, butterfish and more. Our flavorful grill items include a variety of hibachi-style plates, tacos and even a Wagyu beef burger.

Serving Columbia as a local, independent restaurant since 2006, we have made friends and family from all over the southeast and continue to provide delicious food in a casual, upbeat and energetic atmosphere. Music videos or sports are playing on our large tv's behind the bar, and we have a nice collection of wine and speciality drinks to compliment our food.

We invite you to get fresh with us anytime.

Fabulous dinner! We dined early and had most of the restaurant to ourselves. We sat in the corner booth which was quiet and private. Maddie was a kind, pleasant and helpful server. She made a number of recommendations - all of which were spot on. The quality of the food was outstanding - every bit of other reviews and information on the website. We truly enjoyed our dinner and will be back!

About the restaurant
Time counts at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we've continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ's a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we've put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven't just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it's because of them we're continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ's, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.

We had 4 adults and 2 children. We had 6:30 reservations and were promptly seated. Server very attentive. Vast and varied menu. We had heard that there was a bit of a wait for food to come out, so we ordered as soon as our drinks arrived. The atmosphere was lively and fun but sound level a bit loud. Had trouble conversing across the table. Overall enjoyed the experience.
