Last Friday night our party of four tried to get into two local establishments around 5:30 and we were told there was an hour wait. Nobody was in the mood for that so we wandered and found the Villa Nova West on Columbia Blvd. The parking lot indicated that a wait was not necessary and we headed inside. We were... More

Apparently, you need to be a regular or sit at the bar to get service here. The food was good, but our female server was super slow. We were there yesterday and the male server was attentive and friendly.

Our food was excellent! The establishment was clean, menus appeared new, food was excellent and staff was friendly! I read the other reviews and have no idea how they could be about this place. It's a comfortable restaurant/bar. Good bar food and friendly atmosphere. Thanks for a great dinner! We will be back!

There are too many places on Columbia Ave that take pride in their establishments and don't have shady things going on. "The slow animal in the forrest gets eaten." The sister joint Austin Ray will meet a similar fate. Both have gone downhill in the last 10 years big time.

This was my second time coming here and this time I'm not giving it another chance. First off we were the only table seated in the back and it took the server 10 minutes to come and get our drink order. Second, a majority of the food came out wrong. My dad order a regular cheesesteak and instead he got... More

We had steak tenders on rice and spaghetti with meat balls. Both meals were more than enough amounts. The !eat balls may have been the best I've had in a restaurant. Price was reasoable but did not include anything ,( salad extra). The average rating comes from the setting. .Inside was dinghy even for a sports bar. The porch where... More

Second time here is 5 years. Not much changed from first trip. Service of. Food is barely edible. Same as it was 5 years ago. Place was empty. We know why. Will never go back.

First of all this place has a nice wait staff. However it is in desperate need of paint, maintenance and cleaning. Ceilings are stained and falling down. Lots of evidence of roof leakage and many holes from prior wiring, old tv stand not taken down and remains there just supporting lots of dirt over the tables. Ceiling fans also holding... More

OMG...all I can say is we should have left when we were given the menus that were caked with old food and dirt. Worst burger I've had in decades, sticky old seats, good steam cleaning and paint job needed desperately, horrible men's room, great waitress but she must have had 15 to 20 tables to take care of so we...
