Movie Theatre
“Whether you have ties to the military or not, this is at the top of our list of places to take guests. The freedom we enjoy today comes at a price, and this museum brings that to light. Our hope is you will have a greater appreciation for those who have served and are serving after going here.”

Coffee Shop

“One of my favorite coffee shops in town, they roast their own beans locally. If you’re looking for a extra morning boost try the “Jacked” blend. Also, try a build your own breakfast sandwich or try one of the freshly baked scones. The blueberry white chocolate is amazing. ”

American Restaurant
$$$$
“At the tip top of dining experiences in Columbus GA is a sit down affair with few peers. This menu changes often, so it is difficult to recommend specific items. I have gotten she crab soup a few times and keep getting it when offered on the menu. Simply listen to the specials and pick one! Jamie Keating (owner/operator) will not disappoint! Dress up though and bring the Amex, because it's pricey....but you will definitely no regret it!”
