Anthony’s Dairy Bar

Friendly service. Always seems to be a steady stream of customers. My go to place for a quick order of gizzards.
Absolutely the best chicken livers I've ever had!! Seasoned perfectly and large livers. Definitely a local spot. Never would have stopped if someone local had not told me about it. Make sure when you order livers to say 'cook them soft' because if you don't they will be cooked soo hard that they aren't edible. Best tip ever, I learned the hard way.
Best livers and chicken gizzards hands down. This is a jewel only the locals know of. Do yourself a favor, try it and you won't be disappointed! I wish we had one like it in Irmo. I use to go to it often when I worked over that way. Sure do miss it! But don't worry I'm heading that way as soon as I can.

This is the best bakery I've been to! I went there to see if she could make wedding cakes. I didn't want the traditional tower of cakes with fondant, I wanted four different cakes. Let me tell you, I was expecting the cake to be good, but they were beyond every expectation! Especially the double chocolate cake - it's still delicious even after being in my fridge! Best cake ever! Aleka is very professional and easy to work with. She went out of her way to make sure the cakes were delivered on time and were just perfect. I highly recommend her shop. You can't go wrong.

The Saloon

812 Harden St
Columbia, 29205
Favorite Thursday night bar! $1 beers, funny karaoke and a good time all around. If it's not Thursday night, the crowd is substantially older for the Five Points scene. They are very strict for underage people--among the most strict in Five Points, so only go if you're legitimately 21.

China Kitchen Chinese Restaurant

2419 Forest Dr
Columbia, 29204
I loooove the food here! I've been coming to this restaurant since I was a kid. Some of the patrons are undesirable but the food and service are excellent!! The shrimp egg foo young is amazing!! I love chicken wings but I much prefer the "flat" portion of the wing. At this establishment, you can request either all flat pieces or all drummettes! SCORE!
This is the best damn Chinese food in Columbia, hands down. I live out in Lexington and I have no problem driving over to Forest Drive to get their stuff. Their wings are impeccable, their lo mein and friend rice are just the best. Don't let the walk-in clientele run you off - the outside looks like the backdrop for New Jack City but the food is something straight out of Food Network.

China Village

Even though I live not too far from China Village, I usually order food to delivery. The food has a huge portion with flavorful and fresh ingredients. I have tried different Chinese restaurants in the area and this place is the best. 5.50 for the lunch special with food and drink included, this is definitely a reasonable price. Another plus for this place is that they do not put too much oil into the food so it is healthier and more flavorful. As a Chinese, I find this place is pretty much a good quality and cost effective restaurant.

Worth the wait because the line was crazy. The ice cream was crazy good and the cup cakes help me make new friends at work.

I eat there everytime I visit my brother in Lugoff. I love the food and the ppl are so nice. I have never been disappointed.....I seem to gravitate toward their Lasagna most of the time but I have tried other dishes and they are all superb.........try them sometime, you will like them as much as I time I might try the pizza......haven't tried it as of yet. So looking forward to my next visit.

Villa Tronco Italian Restaurant

1213 Blanding St
Columbia, 29201
This is one of the oldest restaurants in Columbia and it is a favorite of older generations as well as new. It has been operating in the same location - a historical firehouse - for nearly 70 years. The pizza recipe is exactly the same since the day they opened for business and it is amazing! Thin crust, with fresh cheese and toppings and real homemade sauce! You can also request that they cut it up into appetizer pieces in case you want to try it and also order an entree from the menu or the nightly specials. The food is ALWAYS great and the service is friendly and reliable, and they have an incredible wine list. And don't forget to make room for Carmella's Cheesecake. In the Fall season, her pumpkin flavored is the best! People sometimes forget about this little gem of a restaurant tucked in the business district of downtown Columbia, but your dining experience will always be a memorable one!

This place rocks. Seriously, the pizza is good and dependable. But what blows us away week after week is the amazing customer service. We get carryout and everyone is always very polite, kind, and happy. Yes, and I am talking about a Dominos Pizza walk up and delivery place. Give this location your business if you like Dominos pizza. We always get the 5.99 med 2 toppings to go. Can't beat it! Online ordering and app are very user friendly as well.
