Columbia Restaurant 5.0

Highlight of the State

The Columbia is Florida’s oldest restaurant. It is absolutely delightful! I look forward to dining here whenever I am in town.

Nestled on 7th Avenue in the heart of Ybor City, The Columbia offers a wonderful atmosphere to enjoy a relaxing meal. This is cigar city and the restaurant sells its own. This is the only place I ever shared a cigar with my father. It was a wonderful experience. We had purchased some hand-rolled cigars down the street and enjoyed them after a fine late-afternoon meal here.

I am a fan of Pompano and The Columbia’s
Pompano en Papillot is stellar. The yellow rice served at the restaurant is outstanding.

In addition I have enjoyed the Snapper “Alicante”, which is a signature dish.

Pompano en Papillot

Awesome! Pompano is a fish I love, but is not available where I live. The Columbia’s is superb.
