Saluda's Story

The largest VFW officers club was built at 751 Saluda Avenue after World War One for the specific purpose of entertaining and celebration on a grand scale. After six years of renovation, the condemned building was reopened in 1996 as Saluda’s Restaurant, with nothing less than white linen tables, crystal glassware and an executive chef. The solid mahogany bar, an antique from the Blakely Hotel in Philadelphia built in the late 1800’s, now graces Saluda’s dining room.

Saluda's now exists in the spirit of our veterans' celebrations of special occasions. Our unique ability to provide excellent service and incredible fare for parties of two to two hundred makes us the perfect choice for all special occasions. There is no other restaurant that exists in the city of Columbia, which can offer you such a grand dining experience.

Located in the heart of Five Points, just steps from the University of South Carolina's campus and less than a mile from the state capital building, Saluda's has been impressing Columbia residents and visitors since it opened to much fanfare in 1996. Saluda’s boasts and outstanding reputation as one of the Capital City's finest restaurants. Owner Steven Cook and his staff are dedicated to providing a dining experience unparalleled in Columbia with emphasis on outstanding food, extensive wine and cocktail selections, and elegant Southern service.

Saluda's Executive Chef

“I love what I do and I have respect our crew, guests, and - most importantly - respect for the Ingredients. Every day is a chance to improve myself and my skills. We are committed to using fresh, seasonal, and substainable ingredients; and, knowing their origins is very important. At Saluda's we are all one team and work together to make sure that every guest is satisfied.” ~ Blake Faries
