A restaurant chain co-owned by former NFL star quarterback Drew Brees is coming to Columbia. Walk-On’s Bistreaux and Bar is remodeling the former Houlihan’s restaurant in the Broadway Bluffs, near Highway 63.
Columbia’s city council first-read a bill Monday night that would allow the new facility to expand by 500 square feet. The city council’s packet says the new restaurant will have an outdoor patio.
Walk-On’s is known for its Louisiana cuisine, including Louisiana shrimp and catfish. It’s also known for other seafood and for its large burgers. Its website says its burgers require you to use two hands to eat them.
Walk-On’s describes itself as “a place where over-the-top enthusiasm and culture is the daily norm.”
