CanalSide Can’t Miss: DaufusKEYS

CanalSide Lofts’ downtown Columbia location gives our apartment residents easy access to some of the city’s best restaurants, shops, bars, cafes, and venues. Each month, we’re highlighting one of these places we know our residents will love in our CanalSide Can’t Miss series.

We are so happy to have as many incredible, talented residents at CanalSide as we do. We’re always thrilled to boast about what they’re accomplishing in Columbia.

CanalSide resident Earl Ware recently opened DaufusKEYS Gullah Bistro and Piano Bar, a new southern eatery and piano bar! Only a five-minute drive from CanalSide on Main Street, DaufusKEYS is quickly becoming a resident favorite. 

DaufusKEYS is the first Gullah restaurant in Columbia and offers a variety of southern menu staples like she crab soup, chicken bog, shrimp and grits, and jambalaya, in addition to a full bar.

There’s a piano in the front window where both classical and jazz musicians will be featured.

DaufusKEYS is open daily for lunch and dinner and offers great happy hour specials Monday – Friday from 4:00 – 7:00 pm.

Congratluations, Earl! We can’t wait to see everyone at DaufusKEYS!
