Went here alone on business. Crowded night but not overwhelming. Really enjoyed it, but in nearly every aspect there was a "but" statement. The environment was intimate and expansive at the same time...BUT the image they are trying to project is muddled by formica-looking countertops on the bar, which projects a weird Arby's image. Service was knowledgeable and helpful... BUT once I had bellied up to the bar it took way too long for someone to take my initial order. There were some wonderful, and I mean wonderful beers on tap: Columbus, Super Fresh H.O.P, and most of all Bodhi, one of the best beers in the country....BUT, those are all IPAs, and everything not IPA was quite pedestrian. 8-10 CBS beers on tap....BUT no guest beers whatsoever. That was a bummer.Food was delicious - stroganoff pasta, interesting modernized take on the standby and the 'tizers ordered by people around me looked tasty as well....BUT $16 was a bit much, and contributed to my overall sticker shock. Did not expect a flight, a tulip, and noodles to run $32.
I had a great time and if I keep coming to Columbus, I shall return without question. Overall the Buts keep CBC from being great, but it is a very good joint.
