    Outstanding service and the food was exceptional as well. Our party ordered steak and eggs, the burrito, and the crab asparagus omelette. Of course we shared an order of bacon in a glass! Their biscuits are best best I’ve ever had and that’s saying a lot. Finally, OBC cocktails are not to be missed. OBC is always a treat.

    Looked forward to finally coming for brunch. The food is always delicious… the atmosphere comfortable… the staff wonderful but not today. Eggs ridiculously undercooked, potatoes overcooked to the point of being burnt….. but when ur favorite foods aren’t good the meal is ruined So disappointing…. I wasn’t charged for my meal but I would rather have paid & had the meal I’m used to getting there

    Despite reservations and time (mid-afternoon) seating was very slow. Excellent service. Food was not up to par. Very nice venue; but based on this and prior brunch visits, we will skip brunch in the future and do dinner instead.

    Food was fair at best. Grits were runny and cold. Braised short ribs had little flavor. Sauce on Halibut was way to sweet. Chicken Parmigiana was less than memorable

    OBC was great. Their chicken and biscuits had a great sauce. The biscuit was crispy on the outside and moist and tasty inside. The chicken had a light and crispy batter. The corn salsa was nothing special.

    OBC has been consistent in its service and quality of food. Craft cocktails never disappoint. My only complaint regarding last night’s dinner was that Brussels sprouts were burnt, not roasted and were not tender. Otherwise, all was good and Zoe was a great server.

    Our waiter was very attentive and thorough. The cocktails served were well balanced and if we weren’t drinking bourbon all week, probably would’ve ordered more. As far as food, it was well seasoned and created a nice depth of flavor. I ordered the shrimp and grits over chicken and waffles. Green onions were on top for a nice contrast in texture. My only complaint is that we didn’t have more room to eat. Will recommend this place and definitely come back next time we’re in Lexington. Oh, and get the “bacon in a glass.” It does feature peanut butter, but it creates a pairing that will not disappoint.

    Parmesan Chicken Caprese was very bland. The grilled ribey was cooked to perfection, but a little to char grilled or seared in the outsides. Other wise great place to go hang out with friends and drink!!

    Short rib dinner was very nice. Sorry to say the Parmesan Chicken was a sad disappointment, dry and tough, 4 tiny balls of mozzarella, no basil taste whatsoever. Side order of Brussels were not edible. Really good service and good atmosphere.
