All in all the service ends up being usually pretty good but it seems like every time there will be maybe 1 or 2 kind of awkward or unfriendly or immature staff; one visit I ran into a bus staff person who was downright surly; host staff does always seem to need just a bit more training in customer service ... Food is consistently very good and atmosphere is cool.
Excellent food and service
Excellent service. The avocado app was delicious, as was my husband’s steak. The fish tacos were just ok.
The bartender also made an excellent old fashioned.
First time in and will be returning!
Great food but a little noisy.
Seated promptly, good service and food
We had never been to the Blinking Light restaurant before and did not know what to expect. The food and service were excellent. I had the Mahi Mahi was outstanding!
Cool little place. Great wine list with moderately priced bottles. Carter is a great server.
Menu was a little too broad for my tastes but is a fun read.
My pizza seemed a bit undercooked but maybe that’s just personal preference.
Recommend for lunch or happy hour.
Terrible experience from the unsmiling hostesses, uninterested server, ridiculously loud music and tasteless food. I'm surprised this place is still in business. This ended up being a dismal birthday celebration. Big thumbs down.
Love the happy hour menu at OBL! I really do wish the Vegetarian Tortilla Soup was just a touch less spicy, though!! It is so good, but the spicy kick packs a punch!! The best Sweet Potato Fries I've ever had... and I also love the chips and guac. Always a fun evening at OBL!
We love this neighborhood place, it’s great! Bailey is so friendly, fun and attends to our every need. Sergio is awesome and friendly. He always welcomes us. Great food and beers!
We do not love the new ketchup however! Maybe have both as options?
We had requested a booth, but since there were just two of us, we were seated at a table in the middle of the restaurant. There were at least two empty booths. We dined early so we’d get a booth. This was disappointing. We are elderly and the noise made it difficult for us to hear each other.
OBL is always a reliable go-to, great food and service.
I had the buffalo meatloaf wrapped in bacon with mushroom sauce with mashed potatoes and broccoli. the portions were very generous, but the meatloaf/sauce was remarkably lacking in flavor. a thick brown gravy would've been perfect.
As usual, OBL is the best place in Highlands Ranch to have a business lunch. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The food is always fantastic. I almost always choose the salmon, but the Highlands Ranch Salad and the Hatch Chili burger are also favorites.
As usual, simply fantastic.
Pretty limited menu - too "southwest chic" and the food really isn't all that great. We won't be returning
Not up to previous high standards. Filets (2) were not prepared correctly, and the meat was not of high quality. Despite this, the service was very good.
2nd time here. Very slow service, and not particularly friendly. Seared Ahi tacos very good. Smoked turkey sandwich nothing to brag about. Duck fat fries excellent. Dining room very chilly.
The s Bruce and food were great!
Old Blinking Light never fails to deliver. Food is always good, large menu offerings something for everyone. I don’t eat meat, my husband doesn’t eat anything else.
First time in your lovely restaurant. Nice food selections.
Impeccable! We also love the food but lately service has been an issue but not tonight. Everything was perfect!
We had to wait about 30 minutes for our reserved table, but once seated, food and service was very good.
We go to OBL 1 night a week and really enjoy our dinner and our friends there as well.
We love the OBL and it is our place to go every time we want a great meal.
Earl and his staff are great!
...don't bother requesting a booth...the children that seat pay no attention to the Open table ...
Friendly staff, good menu, lots of beer choices, moderate prices, limited parking.
Great restaurant. Good food, good service. I would definitely go again.
We went on Valentine’s Day and were seated right away. My friend ordered a blended margarita and I ordered a jalapeño margarita with salt. They brought back a pink looking drink over ice and my drink without salt. Apparently they don’t have a way to make blended drinks but the waiter did offer to change it. I ordered the scallops and then was told they no longer had them. I switched to the green Chile fettuccine with blackened shrimp and my friend ordered the bacon wrapped buffalo meatloaf. She loved her meal, mine was fine. All in all I think the waitstaff needs to have better communication with the kitchen and bar and update diners on what isn’t available right away. It was a pretty expensive meal for just ok food. I probably won’t be going back.
Took a friend to lunch who needed a boost.
Our server was the BEST we had ever had! I WISH I remembered her name. But incredibly attentive in EVERY regard and everything was very speedy, getting our table, drinks, food, and tab paid out.
Very loud, food was blah, waiter was annoyingly bothersome. He tried to take our plates and give us our bill 3 minutes after we got our food. Then came back twice in three minutes to get our card. He was obviously off and wanted to leave but it was only 730pm so come on. Food was average at best and expensive for what you get. Won't go back.
We were not waited on for over 15 minutes once we arrived. But past that point the food and drinks were very good.
we LOVE obl!!!! Especially love Sergio, he is so kind and friendly. Makes it feel so comfortable to have such friendly servers and staff. LOVE a waitress that we always get, but don't know her name!
Bummer is that we've come twice in a row only to be disappointed that Breckenridge beer was out, otherwise love this place!!!
ALWAYS the BEST! The service, alone, is over-the-top. The staff is knowledgeable about their product. And, they are very welcoming and friendly. The cuisine is creative. Interesting nd innovative without being overpriced. All in all a special place to enjoy.
Really glad we made a reservation, as the place was packed! All of the food was absolutely amazing, great drink selection too. My boyfriend had the blackened shrimp tacos and I had the mac 'n cheese, both outstanding. Wait staff was very friendly. The ONLY "downfall" is that it did get pretty loud inside, but that's definitely NOT deal breaker...we WILL be going back to this establishment...highly recommend!
The food was delicious, there are so many delicious options. The special, pork chops, were especially good. The service was also very good. We've been in several times before and will be back again!
Thank you Earl and OBL team for the hospitality and positive energy. The food was fresh, tasty and the service was welcoming and smooth for a 10 top of ladies.
We will keep bringing PhunFitFoodies to see you!
I love the beets and the king ranch casserole with egg and chicken. So delicious. My wife had the shrimp tacos and loved them too. We enjoy eating here.
We eat at OBL frequently and always have a great experience.
The service and the food is always excellent. Our server, Carter, was very attentive and timely. The hostess, Gabby, quickly got us another place setting when we asked. It's not a quiet restaurant. But the mood is fun and enjoyable. We love coming here.
