Holiday Hours, Christmas & New Years 2016

In observance of Christmas, Mr. Friendly’s will be CLOSED Saturday, December 24th through Monday, December 26th. We will resume our normal business hours on Tuesday, December 27th.  We will also be CLOSED on Monday, January 2nd. We hope you all have a safe and relaxing holiday!

Wines for Charity Week, Sept.26th – Oct.1st

Join us to raise money for all those still in need in Louisiana!

In August massive flooding devastated the southern part of the state, leaving many displaced. Columbia residents are no stranger to the destruction flooding can cause, as we were in a similar situation in October 2015. Many Louisiana residents stepped up and helped us when we needed it the most, and we are happy to be able to do the same! Starting Monday, September 26th, we will be donating 20% off all dine-in wine sales to the American Red Cross Louisiana Capital Area-West Chapter. Not just for the one night, but for the whole week…and not just at Mr. Friendly’s, but also at our sister restaurants Cellar on Greene & Solstice Kitchen.  That gives you an entire week, and three different restaurants to pick from, to give back. It’s as simple as drinking wine!
