    Great Restaurant

    Love this restaurant! We always make it a destination on our vacation from KY. Best food and atmosphere. We dined on the patio overlooking the bay. We brought our Mini Golden doodle, and the hostess brought him ice water. They were so friendly. The 1905 salad prepared at the table is my favorite, but everything is delicious,

    Wonderful Dog Friendly Restaurant

    On the bay with beautiful views, Columbia continues to be a great Tampa Bay tradition. I have always enjoyed visiting Columbia whenever we have visited the west coast of Florida. When we arrived our two dogs were given a bowl of cool water. We enjoyed the food, they enjoyed the atmosphere. Be warned, the patio looks out on a pedestrian pier and there are lots of people walking by. If you have a hyper dog, they may be very excited with this. Other than that the staff is friendly and attentive and the restaurant views of the water are magnificent. Would definitely return.
