    Restaurant has a nice ambiance to it and the service was excellent! Wish I could say the same of the food. Bread was fresh, house made and delicious, along with an excellent Bloody Mary and a drink called a Valkyrie! I got a steak that was supposed to be medium rare and was brought medium well. No problem, they took it away and brought it back cooked perfectly! Unfortunately it chewed like bubble gum? Looked and tasted nice, just could not break it down to swallow it! Mashed potatoes, however, some of the best I’ve ever eaten! Worse, my wife got a Couscous salad with Arugula and an overcooked piece of Salmon. The Arugula was still on its stalk, which were basically inedible. I will say they took both meals off the bill and apologized appropriately which made things better. Chef definitely needs to up his game here with the choosing and cooking of his cuts of beef, along with a little better prepping of the salads. If you want $62 for a steak, it needs to be much better than what was served.

    I've been here a couple of times. You'd be hard pressed to find a better cocktail and food menu. Our service this time was just ok. The server dropped a taco plate on one of my guests and didn't even apologize let alone comp him a drink or dessert.

    We were here with family for a delayed Easter brunch. Our server, Nick, was phenomenal . . . extremely accommodating and there when we needed him. What can I say about the food? It was amazing!! I've lived here in Kentucky for almost five years, and this was my first time at OBC Kitchen. We can't wait to go back!!

    Excellent food and service! We shared the pimento & bacon dip, and an order of fried green tomatoes to start. We found both to be delicious. Entrées were shrimp & grits, scallops with risotto, and the waygu burger. All were exceptional in taste and preparation. Hoping our daughter decides to attend UK so that we can make future visits!
