I reviewed BDC in 2014 - previous location, not sure if different ownership - and loved the food but not the service. Things have changed. This is a new, roomy, very nice place. Great location in Blue Ash, at Summit Park. The restaurant and bar...More

Great location. Good food. Absolute sticker shock! $75 for lunch is out of control, especially with TWO kids meals! Charged my kids $6 each for a side of goetta with their kids pancake. That's within $2 of the kids meal! Plus $4.25 for a Shirley...More

Went for dinner & was really surprised at the quality of food. The baby blue salad was excellent & the mushroom cheeseburger got a thumbs up. Highly recommend the bread board, locally made bread was delicious. We will return.
