And so it begins..

Yesterdays, the iconic Five Points restaurant and tavern, is closing and its future is uncertain as the coronavirus slows businesses across Columbia.
...
“We’re basically letting the virus dictate what’s going on with us,” MacRae said. “If it doesn’t last too long, we’ll be back. If it does, we might not be.”

When my parents were still living, we ate at Yesterday's fairly often. In recent years, I have only gone a few times, but never worried about it, as I figured it would always be there. Hopefully they will come back.

UPDATE 21 April 2020 -- As reported by commenter Ed in the comments, and confirmed by WIS, Yesterday's is no more. A real shame.

UPDATE 29 April 2020: Add a COVID-19 tag.

UPDATE 12 May 2020 -- Well, they haven't lost any time gutting the interior!

  2. I have been eating and drinking in there since college. It became my go to place to take guests from out of town and everyone has loved it.

  3. Say it isn't so...

    As already noted, like so many other things, I assumed this would always be here...or at least wouldn't bother to take time to consider the possibility of Yesterday's going out of business.

    When I was a student at USC, my uncle would take me out to lunch here occasionally. A few months ago, before we went to a USC lady Gamecocks basketball game, my wife, my daughter, and I met my brother and niece here for a meal. The food was still great and has never, ever disappointed.

    My favorite has always been the country (formerly known as "Confederate") fried steak with the Arkansas Traveler being a close second. I remember having fish and grits here years ago, too, and it was also really good.

  6. Yesterday’s announced on their Facebook page that they won’t be reopening. This will be a big loss to the 5 Points area.

  7. Oh, wow!

    I'm not surprised, but that's still awful.

  9. Dang...what a shame this is. Like other commenters, the Confederate Fried Steak and CF chicken with green beans and mashed potatoes covered in that delish gravy.
    Stumbled in many times during St. Patty's Day festivities. Shandon was a great place to live.
    I also saw Hootie & the Blowfish play here to a crowd of about 20-30 peeps on several occasions before they blew up. : )
    R.I.P. Yesterday's.....
