5-Star Review

Join us - for any meal!

In the mood for breakfast? Come on in. Stopping through town for lunch? We’ve got you covered. Even dinner favorites are served up every day in our kitchens.

Come in today and experience this landmark and legacy of Columbia. You’d think 131 years in business would teach us a thing or two about people and food. We’d tell you, you’re right.

Our History

Hinkle’s Restaurant and Pharmacy opened its doors to the people of Columbia over 131 years ago. After a long history and many ups and downs, Hinkle’s revamped the business in October of 2017.

Although the original pharmacy is no longer an operating part of the business, Hinkle’s Restaurant has been joined with Murphy’s Mercantile & Co. to deliver locals and tourists quality food, hand crafted gifts and a warm and welcoming atmosphere for all.
