Food scene

Catfish Johnny's and Rusty Anchor Marina is accessible by car or boat and are a must if you enjoy waterfront dining and entertainment. Eat a meal at Rusty Anchor which offers a delicious full menu while Catfish Johnny's serves high quality bar food with a small scale menu. It has a large upper deck covered bar area that is family friendly and a lower deck with a smaller tiki bar, music entertainment, and a dance floor. Whichever you choose, you will have lake views and can enjoy a meal or just a drink and watch the beautiful boats galore! Me, my children, and grandchildren have spent many days here. The folks you meet here are always very friendly. FYI, seating at Catfish Johnny's is first come, first serve, seat-yourself.

Hendrix is a newly renovated restaurant/bar on Main Street, Columbia. They have an amazing chef who serves up farm-to-table fresh! The interior is very trendy and hip. Walk up the stairwell to the rooftop bar (open year-round) that has a sit down bar, sofas with large tables, table seating under an umbrella. In the winter, the gas "coffee" tables are heated, they have plenty of stand up heaters and large cozy throws to keep you warm. The city views from the rooftop are gorgeous!

For fine dining, visit Halls Chophouse. The food never disappoints and the State House view from the bar is my absolute favorite.
