Our Story


Hinkle’s Restaurant and Pharmacy opened its doors to the people of Columbia over 124 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.
