Harvey's

Great food, great service, and a great atmosphere are the three things we offer to ensure you have a GREAT dining experience. Harvey's is a contemporary restaurant with an atmosphere set by old brick, decorative woodwork, and great music. We serve everything from specialty salads and sandwiches to our signature 48 hour marinated ribeyes and famous prime rib.

Last couple of times I placed To-Go orders with Harvey’s they really dropped the ball. They have the potential to be a decent restaurant given that there’s not much competition in Columbus. This establishment should really take pride in take out orders. Customers shouldn’t have to go through the hassle of checking orders with car side. I should be able to place my order and give a brief description of what I want and have it in my bag. Well, the last couple of times I’ve had items missing from my orders and unfortunately there wasn’t anything offered other than a ‘sorry’ for the inconvenience. I expect this from fast food but not from the Eat With Us group. Its not always convenient to just return food or come back to pick up missing items or bring back food that contained hair and to hear a weak apology! Do better

The classic Krispy Kreme doughnut is always good, but it's great when the red sign is on. I got a couple of doughnuts as a snack, and enjoyed them thoroughly.

Downtown Columbus

Reviewed By blandboy - Quad Cities USA

Cool atmosphere in downtown Columbus. Live music the Thursday we were there. Shrimp po-boy was generous and delicious with lots of shrimp on a just-right roll. My wife’s pan-fried chicken breast drizzled with a delicious honey-butter pecan sauce was very yummy. Price was right, too. Lot’s of cajun (including crawfish), steak, pasta and other choices on the menu, I’d go again!

Beans and Cream

Reviewed By Pik6y - Columbus, Mississippi

I like B&C over starbucks anymore. The staff is great the joe is great and the price is a heck of a lot more reasonable!! PLUS you can trade your books. Take a book you've read, leave it and pick from the ones they have there. LOVE the atmosphere, more family and home town then the trendy spendy alternative.

Old Hickory Steak House

Reviewed By LindaAnn58 - Columbus MS

When we want a steak, we go to Old Hickory. The steaks are always cooked to perfection. Even well done, which I prefer, are juicy and tasty! This is a steak house...salad, steak, potato, garlic bread, tea. It has been at its present location for many years. The food and the service are great! I highly recommend.

United Deli and Grocery

Reviewed By Nick M

My wife and I visited United Deli and Grocery yesterday and were unbelievably impressed. I got the gyro and chicken salad sandwich. She got the French dip. We also sampled a basket of fries, cookie, and baklava. Now let me tell you, the place isn't fancy, but that should by no means deter you. The staff were amazingly pleasant and considerate. The food arrived in literally 2 minutes. I'm not just using the "2 minute" saying. It was 2 actual minutes. We were stunned. The portion sizes were preposterously large, in the best way possible! We got the sandwiches in the six inch size, but ended up taking home enough for a full meal for dinner later. The gyro was piled so high with delicious lamb that I had to take half of it off and eat it with my fries, which was a delight. The homemade bread on the sandwiches is just fantastic. The roast beef on my wife's sandwich was tender and flavorful, and the chicken salad was sweet and had a perfect consistency. One special thing they had available was ice cold glass bottle coke and root beer, which makes you feel like a kid again. We will be returning often, considering you can't beat the price. All of this was like $25. Outrageously awesome! Go visit at once.

Reviewed By Donna D - Columbus, Mississippi

Food here is always served fresh and tasty. The restaurant is clean and service is friendly BUT plan to wait when you order. I have used the app and still had to wait in line just to pick up my item for carry out. Food is good enough for this not to be a deal breaker but when I crave a good salad during my work week I go elsewhere since time is limited.

Reviewed By DarlaCG - Gulfport, Mississippi

This is a great restaurant. The food is good and service is great. They have a Sunday brunch with a Bloody Mary bar. Several choices for appetizers. Try the egg rolls!There is a parking lot for easy parking. Only problem I have had is when I have been alone they always sit me by the bar. This has happened at different times of the night and day, even when several other tables available.
