I truly enjoy going to the OBC. You can buy a bottle of wine (or beer) from the liquor store and they'll pour it for you. The ambience is comfortable...BUT...the preparation of the food is so inconsistent that I think they have no recipes and a new cook every night.
The first time I ordered their "adult" Mac 'n cheese...it was perfect. 3 cheeses melted together with a crusty breadcrumb topping: ultimate comfort food. The next time, it was a notch down, but okay. This week it was horrendous! It was macaroni tossed with tons of bread crumbs and out-of-balanced cheese. There was 3 of us sharing it and none of us could tolerate it.
Another time we ordered spicy italian sausage link grilled and served with sun dried tomato, marinated artichoke heart, red bell peppers, fresh basil, garlic oil, and a pomegranate jalapeno & arbol chili sauce. It was fantastic! Spicy and lively. The next time we ordered the same thing and it was so hot (I think the cook used habenro instead of jalapeño) that not one person at the table could eat it. I usually order Blow Your Mind Chicken: Shredded all white meat chicken simmered in hot & tangy buffalo sauce, with crumbled bacon and gorgonzola cheese served on belgian endive for a crisp finish. It is fantastic! But, once in awhilenitbcan be so hot that it burns your mouth. Now I enjoy spicy food...many people can't handle as spicy as I can. With a little more attention to the kitchen, this place could soar.
