On a very rainy night we drove down the street to Five Columns restaurant it wasn't busy but that could have been due to the downpour. I ordered the Greek ribs and did not like the seasoning at all, the Greek salad wasn't what we are used to either. My husband had a rib steak and spaghetti, the steak had... More

I have eaten at Five Columns many times, breakfast, lunch, dinner. American and Greek cuisine. Servers have always been very knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive without being overly so. Love the food. Greek Ribs fall off the bone, Gyros are wonderful, as is steak, souvlaki, Greek salad, Greek pork chops, dessert, drinks. Hummus!! Gotta have the hummus. Everything has exceeded expectations.

Accidently discovered this gem while looking for a place to grab a snack or appetizer. Ended up going there several times during our week in Bellingham. The restaurant is spotlessly clean and I loved the added touch of linen napkins! This is a family owned and operated business and we immediately experienced their friendliness. Tried everything from salmon to moussaka... More

We visit every time we come to Bellingham. The service is excellent and the staff extremely friendly. We always go for the Greek food but if that isn't your thing the breakfasts ordered by other members of the family always look delicious too. It is always a hard choice but the Souvlaki is the dish that always grabs me

We like to go here for their breakfast! It is a nice restaurant and the people are friendly. Also like their selection of breakfast items there. They are not very crowded on the weekend either, so that makes it better!

Our meal was quite good but way too much greek salad. The rice and chicken slouvaki were nice but the salad really wasn't a Greek salad at all. If you were a rabbit you would have been happy. Excellent service and friendly staff rescued an average meal at best. Loved the chilled glasses of beer however.

We loved the authentic Greek cuisine and friendly service. There's plenty on the menu for the less adventurous, but at least try the tzadziki and bread--you won't be sorry.

I have not been in for awhile but got an email about their Wednesday gyro lunch special. We happened to be in the area and wanted to give it a try. I couldn't remember the exact wording so I told the server we wanted the gyro lunch specials. I asked if we could have one beef/lamb and one chicken, one... More

Thank you for your review and we appreciate your feedback and comments. The gyro & soup special applies to only the beef/lamb gyros, but we did look into this and your gyro (the beef/lamb one) was over charged at 9.45, instead of the special 8.95 price. We apologize for the lack of communication to clear this up on your visit... More
