Outstanding lunch at BBC. I have to commend this restaurant for all the steps that it is taking to keep its patrons safe. Everything about my lunch was exceptional - the food, the service and the environment. I will definitely be back

Chicken cheesesteak was delicious, and it was big enough for 2 meals.

The hostess was pleasant and we were seated immediately. We dine at 4pm on a mid-weeknight so the restaurant was pretty quiet. The waitress was pleasant as well. However, our 2 BLTs came out with NO bacon whatsoever and no mayo either. When alerted, the waitress brought one small plate of bacon for both sandwiches. And we were charged $14 each for a BLT on white toast. The creme brulee that we ordered for dessert had no hard toasted sugar on top. The top was soggy and without the signature window pane of bruleed sugar. Unfortunately, the food left a lot to be desired.

Overall bad experience, pregnant daughter ordered her burger well done it came out rare. Son in law ordered sandwich with regular fries he got sweet potato fries. Service was terribly slow with such a small crowd. We received a VIP coupon today and restaurant wouldn’t accept it, waitress told us the owner said no because they’re struggling. We are all struggling during this pandemic.

The hostess was terrible! She never spoke just stood there dumbfounded! We had 2 reservations on open table. First part of our group sat right away. Second part of our group took 15 longer than our reservation and again hostess was useless. I can’t believe she still works there! The male host wasn’t any better. Both of these people represent your restaurant and had no clue what they were doing!

A place you can always count on for good food, drink and service. Consistently excellent. Only possible suggestion would be more varied wine list. But that never stops us from going and having a great time.

Food was decent for what it was. Server was friendly. Only issue was that despite making my reservation through Open Table and receiving a confirmation from OT the day before, the hostess had no record of our reservation. Fortunately, our party went from 6 to 4 at the last moment and our reservation was 11:30 AM, so they were able to seat us. The hostess pretty much ignored me and walked away with our menus while I was pulling up the reservation on my app. Just a bit rude. Not my first choice for the future.

My family & I went on Sunday for Mother's day. We were shocked there was hardly anyone else in the restaurant. Everywhere else we called had no open reservations. Our waitress took a long time coming back to check on us, see if we needed anything else. It took a long time to get our drinks. We were all wondering why it would take so long since we were almost the only party in the restaurant , can't imagine what it is like if they were busy?? The food was good, one of the items my brother n law ordered after 20 min the waitress came back and said it was sold out? Not sure what is going on with this place, we have come in the past and was always busy any great service...maybe that was just for Mothers day?

1st customers of the day as soon as they opened. Food was cooked sub par and was cold when they delivered it to the table. Waitress was horrible. Never came to check on us, we always had to flag her down. Did not keep drinks filled, no ketchup delivered when everyone on the table had fries or hash browns. Very disappointed on Mother’s Day

Great Menu selections and excellent staff.
However, we had made a reservation on Open Table and when we arrived for lunch
on a busy Friday before Christmas, the restaurant had never taken the reservation
from Open Table. Had to wait almost 1/2 hour for a table. The booths are tight,
especially when wearing coats etc in the winter.

Four adults had dinner; the other 3 enjoyed their meals. I had great mashed potatoes and stringbeans but the meatloaf was rubbery. I ate 2/3 because we were headed to an outdoor event in 23° weather and I wanted the fuel. I told the waiter how disappointed I was but he just said, "Sorry."

None of the food was very hot. Asked for different fries they were so cold. Creme brulee was cold and didn't have a good sugar topping. Restaurant was freezing. We asked waiter if we could move to different table near fireplace (empty tables) acted like that was inconvenient. Said he would turn up heat. Still freezing. Was not our best experience at restaurant.

We did not have a good experience. The food was not well prepared, it had to be sent back. I think they were under staffed the night we were there.

The Bcc is easy to find. Parking was sufficient. Menu varied. Last page for specials was not current for 1 at our table. Waitress took care of it. Totally enjoyed Veg' Stir Fry. Outstanding and perfectly spiced.
Salmon portion was on the small side. Broccoli under cooked. Asked for another serving of broccoli which was cooked longer it was brought in good time...but the new portion was not tender enough for a senior citizen.
Meatloaf was very good. Alfredo was very good. Ribs were very good. Would go back for the Veg Stir Fry when in the area. Not great location for senior citizen with a hearing aid but he did not complain. He expected the noise knowing it was a bar. But maybe lunch would be a quieter crowd where you could talk and hear the other person. Attended for the Cab Calloway Fundraiser.
Thank you,

Good food, great space, but they have a weird system with Open Table where they do not always confirm your reservation. We had to wait for several minutes even after showing them our OT confirmation email. To their credit, they were very respectful, humble and accommodating even though they made a mistake.

The service was excellent. The only issue I had was I reserved a table for 7. I needed an actual table because I was in a wheelchair, but when I arrived it was a booth, so I couldn't get all the way up to the table. Also, I couldn't to the bar area due to the huge crowd. Otherwise it was a great experience and I would come back again.
