You have to love this place, The broasted chicken is like going back to the 70's Tastee Freez...only better! The chicken and fries are great, plus, they offer a $9 all-white meat plate my wife and I were able to share. Add to it the best ice cream in Columbia and this is just a great place to eat. One...

We were referred to this place to get a "Great burger". I ordered the cheeseburger all the way. The toppings were fresh and the patty seemed fresh and not frozen. The Patty was small though and the toppings and bun overwhelmed it. The bun was average. Fries were average. We also ordered chicken fingers. Average. They came with rolls that... More

Ok. Looks can be deceiving, and this place is old and run down, but not the food. It's American burgers, fries, cola, etc at its yummy best. No it isn't gourmet or going to win any prizes, but the steady line of customers and friendly staff and cheap good eats is what has probably kept this place going since 1942!... More

They had only soft serve vanilla and chocolate for ice-cream choices, ran out of chocolate mid order and we would have had to wait for a new batch. They got 2 out of 4 items wrong on our order. I don't think I will be back. We did not try any of their food options.

Just burgers, hot dogs, onion rings, ice cream but this is a place that obviously has served generations. If you want to enjoy the ambience of true Americana, this would be a good choice for you. You can order and take out or eat in their simple enclosed dining room. A family favorite!

Had the Dairy Bar Burger, a classic double deluxe type of sandwich. Very good. My small cherry milkshake was ok but most of the cherries were still whole in the bottom of the cup & I was not given a spoon with which to fish them out. Glad I found this throwback place while visiting here.

The Rosewood Dairy Bar is one of those places you have to experience. Old time drive up short order place. The short order food is consistent an very good! Wife loves the Sundaes and we enjoy the challenge of guessing which servers make the biggest mess with the Sundae! Dripping chocolate and ice cream....can be pretty messy but DEEELICIOUS! Oh...

Largest small dipped ice cream cone I have ever had. Service at the window was unique and friendly. It was a small town feeling establishment in the middle of the city. Casual tables in ac room to sit and enjoy.
