I was disappointed that our steaks were overcooked and very dry. Not the quality of food we expect from a restaurant serving prime beef. Brussell Sprouts were charred.

We called before even getting to OBC to ask if we could come a bit early because we had finished our afternoon trip to Natural Bridge sooner than expected. We were told to come on in and as soon as we arrived, the greeter took excellent care of us, giving us a high top near the bar so our guests from Colorado could enjoy their bourbon tastings in style. The tastings were great, the servers informative and accommodating, and the food was excellent. Our friends were very impressed and we were so happy to have given them this experience!

Staff was very personable and attentive. Food was delicious - our favorite is the bacon with peanut butter appetizer. There is not a bad meal on the menu, which makes it hard to decide what to have for dinner. We are from out of town, but eat here every time we visit.

I had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant for the first time over Labor Day weekend. I can't say enough good things about it. The food was excellent, especially liked the Bacon in a Glass appetizer. We had the best waitress in Lexington. She was not only knowledge, but also absolutely delightful. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We had a party of 6 and had a great time. We ordered three apps, the turf and surf, bacon in a glass and the BBQ shrimp. Everyone shared and everyone enjoyed it all. For dinner we had the Salmon, Pork, Filet and NY Strip. The pork for the cost was a little undersized but was really good. The Salmon had a Potato Cake on top and had a real food flavor. The filet is a filet, can't go wrong. The NY was actually better than expected, per my friends.
