Want to feel special? Go to Chris McD's. Everything is sooo good. My favorite is a lobster tail with asparagus. Small duh and so tasty. Their steaks are cooked perfect. Best, Chris ( the owner) is always there and his waiters and waitresses are the best. Drinks are creative and very good❗️

Best filet I've ever had! It's served with rock shrimp and asparagus then they cover it in cheese sauce! The service is always great and they have signature cocktails that make for a fun night out.

Chris Mcd's is by far the best restaurant in Columbia, MO! Available certified black angus beef, also dry-aged. Filet, Crab legs and Lobster tails available. Daily fish specials like Hawaiian ahi tuna, red ruby trout, and Norwegian salmon. Flown in fresh straight to the dinner table! Local Amish Chicken and fresh herbs out of Chris Mcd's Garden! 😋

After taking a look at the menu we decided we didn't want to run up a $100 bill on dinner so we opted for 3 of their small plates.....the pepper crusted sirloin, lamb, and crab cakes. All were nicely done but the bill ended up being $50 anyway. This is an upscale restaurant, which normally we would embrace.....somehow it just... More

An ideal dining atmosphere for bringing the family together after a long semester in college for me, my brother and my sister, and my mother's long day of work! It is my belief that as a family, we have never visited this place before, so we gave Chris McD's a try! It didn't take us too long to get seated... More

Had a great business dinner here last evening. Great service and the food was excellent. (Except my salmon was a little over cooked.) The only reason I did not give 5 stars is the seating spacing. It's a little crowded in the restaurant. Just makes having a business discussion a little challenging. I will definitely go back, as there are... More

Chris McD's is an old favorite in Columbia. It has a great menu and wonderful desserts. The food is well-prepared, and the atmosphere is good. Good wine list. I highly recommend it.

American restaurant that has been a Columbia staple for many years, yet still keeps a fresh menu. A good friend summed it up for us, "Can never go wrong with hris McD's."
