We were shocked to find that Chris McD's has removed their signature item, Braised Pork Shank from their menu. It was complimented with a delicious "demi glaze reduction" sauce. There was no other meal in Columbia that could top it and I could go on and on! Oh well, it forced the four of us to try something new! Our... More

Great atmosphere - the food is always so good - very consistent. We had stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer - very good. Also just fun to sit in the bar and have drinks.

Went out on a Friday night for my boyfriend's birthday. Had a total of 7 people. We brought our own cake and they were very accommodating in taking it to the kitchen and then cutting and serving for us. Food was very good.

We met friends for dinner on our way from KC to St. Louis. Would not have guessed that a strip mall housed such an upscale fine-dining restaurant. From beef carpaccio and ahi poke napoleon to grilled salmon and vegetables with a wonderful honey glaze and mushroom risotto, we thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

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
