Saluda's Story

The largest VFW officers club was built at 751 Saluda Avenue after World War One for the specific purpose of entertaining and celebration on a grand scale. After six years of renovation, the condemned building was reopened in 1996 as Saluda’s Restaurant, with nothing less than white linen tables, crystal glassware and an executive chef. The solid mahogany bar, an antique from the Blakely Hotel in Philadelphia built in the late 1800’s, now graces Saluda’s dining room.

Saluda's now exists in the spirit of our veterans' celebrations of special occasions. Our unique ability to provide excellent service and incredible fare for parties of two to two hundred makes us the perfect choice for all special occasions. There is no other restaurant that exists in the city of Columbia, which can offer you such a grand dining experience.

Located in the heart of Five Points, just steps from the University of South Carolina's campus and less than a mile from the state capital building, Saluda's has been impressing Columbia residents and visitors since it opened to much fanfare in 1996. Saluda’s boasts and outstanding reputation as one of the Capital City's finest restaurants. Owner Steven Cook and his staff are dedicated to providing a dining experience unparalleled in Columbia with emphasis on outstanding food, extensive wine and cocktail selections, and elegant Southern service.

Saluda’s Executive Chef

Josh Rogerson was brought up in Italy and embraces that country’s rich culinary heritage. As a child he spent hours at his mother’s kitchen table studying old cookbooks.Josh Rogerson He lived in Bologna, the heart of Italian cuisine and later attended school in Germany where he continued learning and experiencing the food and culture of Europe. He enrolled at the University of South Carolina for two years studying linguistics and business before eventually deciding to commit to cooking full time. Josh started at Saluda’s in January 2014. His menu is influenced by both his Italian heritage and the European cuisine he grew up with while also integrating classic techniques and ingredients native to his new home here in the South. “I want my food to be as close as possible to the best meals I ate growing up, and hopefully give someone eating it that spark and that excitement to remember it years down the road.”
