I went solo to Colombiana for lunch, and I felt welcomed and very comfortable there. I ordered the french toast with cream cheese in the middle and a few fruits on the side. It was basically American, I didn't really want American , but their other dishes were a bit heavier with meats. So it worked out in the end. It was nice and filling, but....I wanted something that had Latin flavor. I also ordered a hot chocolate, it wasn't mixed all the way, so, eh, attention missed there. I also got another drink that was alcohol infused, but I can't remember what it was. Maybe something with mango in it. I ended up spending some dough on myself that afternoon. Almost 20 bucks, including tip. But, oh well, I found a place that I'll go to again. Parking was easy, but since the area has small blocks, I can see where you might want to go a little early before the upstairs opens for dancing for the night.

I just wanted to let everyone know how rude and hateful these people are. I worked there they are a bunch of wackos the woman Pricsilla sleeps on the floor in the middle of the kitchen. The bartender, that calls the cops on everybody looks at Playboys behind the bar. Do you really want him serving your drinks with those hands. They make fun of there customers and when there is a problem with the food they will never refund your meal. They also only pay the waitresses $2.50 an hour when the minumum pay for servers is $3.65. They treat there employees like crap. Thats why you rarely see the same faces. You will not see these people next year. They smoke cigerettes in the walkin cooler which is filled with food. The place is a joke. Also they hate familys with kids that come there.

I couldn't believe what I witnessed here. A couple next to us ordered their drinks and meal. After an hour of waiting for food they just wanted the bill for drinks and were going to leave. The owner called the cops and said they were trying to skip out on a meal they hadn't eaten.

If you want to pay too much for food, get small portions and crab cakes that stink like a sewer this is the spot. Our salads came after the dinner, perch dinner came and the accompanying potatoes came 5 minutes later. The waitress even asked my brother if his crab cakes stunk before he tried them. When we sent them back, they took half the price of the dinner off. No free drinks, no real sense of apology. Never again. It is a nice spot to sit on the water though.

We went to Top Flr last night for an early dinner. Since it was a nice day, we chose to sit outside, on one of the four ikea-ish tables that were lined on the sidewalk. It was nice, I got to see a lot of people walking their dogs, and my date found entertainment in making fun of the size of people walking in and out of Mary Mac's. (It really did look like they gained twenty pounds between walking in and waddling to their cars. Good ole southern cooking!) We didn't order drinks, since I wasn't feeling like wine and they didn't have any kind of cocktail list to choose from. (though they did have absinthe on the menu, which I have been meaning to try. I know I won't see any green fairies, but I would still like to have some.) We placed our order: Hummus to start, duck pizza, pork tenderloin, bacon roasted potatoes, and macaroni and cheese. The hummus came out, and I honestly could not stop eating it. The chili oil on top was so good, and the flatbread it was served with was wonderful, with the perfect doughy to crunchy ratio. We happily accepted when our server offered extra flatbread, even though it was just to take home with the leftover portion. We had to save room! Next came our entrees and sides. My pork tenderloin was amazing. The Vadalia jus on top was so flavorful, sweet and rich. The duck pizza marked the reappearance of the flatbread, this time topped with pesto, mushrooms, cheese and duck. It was a huge portion, and also perfectly done. The roasted potatoes tasted like potato skin appetizers you find at any chain, and I mean that in a good way. The potatoes were infused with the bacon flavor, but still maintained some of their potato integrity. The macaroni and cheese....was bad. The noodles were soggy, and the whole dish tasted like oil, yeast and sugar, nothing else. That misstep was big for me, considering how much I love mac and cheese, but the other dishes were so good that I just pushed the macaroni to the side and forged on. After all of our leftovers were boxed up (There was a lot to box, believe me.) we ordered dessert to go. One bad part of this is that all they have to put to go food in is cardboard boxes, which meant we could either get something without the ice cream or get one of the few that had no scream to speak of. We ordered the flourless chocolate cake without the tobacco ice cream, but out waitress recommended we get the bitter chocolate topped with lemon oil and served with a cookie, instead. Of course I dug into the dessert box within half an hour of getting home. It was all right, though I didn't really like the lemon mixed with the rich chocolate and the salty cookie. I would much rather have the chocolate bruschetta at Krog Bar for the salt/chocolate combo. Instead of finishing the dessert, I went back for another potato wedge (or two). All in all, this was a good dining experience. We spent a little under sixty dollars (before tip), and have enough for leftovers for the next two days. Duck pizza for breakfast? Yes please.

Cool place, good setup upstairs- don't let the pool table when you first walk in deceive you...This isn't a hole in the wall bar. Great looking polish chicks. You actually feel like you're in Europe
