“His name, your place”

Coley’s was designed to be a restaurant for any day of the week.

Because of this, you’ll find everything from the ambiance to the menu reflects a casual charm that seems to be appropriate for any occasion. The end result is an inviting, unassuming eatery where we hope you’ll find yourself right at home. Since opening the doors in 2008, Coley’s has strived to become a favorite downtown restaurant.  We attribute our success to a guest-first approach.

Success in this industry is determined day-to-day. Everytime a guest decides to give you a shot, you have to make sure they leave happy.
— Brian Coley, owner

Our approach is simple: we want to create items that we like to eat. We think you’ll like it too!  Using fresh, top-quality ingredients is fundamental when creating delicious food. With an increasing demand for locally sourced, non-GMO, sustainable, and gluten-free products, we are constantly modifying our menu and practices to join the effort.  

When you sit down at Coley’s for the first time, you can expect a knowledgeable staff that is ready to serve delicious food, and a perfect space for you to enjoy time with your compadres!  So take some time out of your busy schedule to let us take care of you.


About the owner

Chef-owner, Brian Coley, doesn’t consider himself a chef. Entering the University of Missouri with a path toward Engineering, he graduated with a degree from the Hotel & Restaurant Management program. His ultimate goal upon changing his course of study was to open a restaurant of his own one day.  

We love our town!

Coley’s is very proud to be a part of the community and the The District in downtown, Columbia.  Since 2008, we have had the pleasure to play a role in rehearsal dinners, first dates, wedding receptions, book clubs, happy hours, Christmas parties, graduation celebrations, date nights, ladies’ nights, birthdays and anniversaries.

We have had the opportunity to employ some of the coolest people, whom we consider family.  Relationships have formed and even babies born from the connections made at Coley’s! We are so proud to be a part of the community and hope that our community will continue to have us around for many years to come.
