Ordered two specials tonight. The steaks, which are supposed to be filets, were knotty wads of beef that I could not identify. The Diego salad was mostly lettuce with very little of what made it a centerpiece back in the day. Fries were heavy and...More

Do not order from here! Ordered 2 dinners and 1 was cooked wrong, after calling we were told they couldn't fix it unless it was paid for again. I do not think so! Very bad business to mess up an order and not correct the...More

Friends who live here told us we have to have true Lexington food. Now I know where to go for boiled, overcooked steak and a boiled potato. If you want flavor, be sure to have your own salt and pepper. Very, very disappointing....

Columbia Steak house is a wonderful place to eat. The restaurant may look at little dated but it is clean, has great service and food! We go for Lunch there a lot and I have been to dinner there too.

I had this for lunch recently and was quite shocked at how much it cost. However, I paid a delivery fee, so that added on a bit. The fish sandwich was HUGE and very good! I wasn't very impressed with the wedges, though.

I've been eating at Columbia's since 1968 when the downtown location was all there was. I've ordered from the carryout place their signature special. The salad (combo of head lettuce and cabbage) is just wonderful, but the buttery sauce on the steak will certainly clog...More
