One of our recent rehearsal dinner guests, Katie Bradley has left a great review for us and even provided some pictures of her rehearsal dinner on our patio. Be sure to check it out below!

"I`m so happy I decided to go with CBC for my rehearsal dinner! We had 35 people in our party and they were able to accommodate all of us on their front patio without a problem. We were allowed to pick several items from their menu during the planning process in order to create our own menu for all of our guests to be able to choose from. We chose an appetizer, a salad, their delicious margherita pizza, a couple sandwiches and then two dinners so that we would have something to fit everyone’s tastes. Everyone loved the orange glazed salmon and pizza, and we also had a few kids there that were able to order off the kids menu. We were allowed two full hours in the space, which was enough time for all of us to mingle and have a couple of their delicious beers before eating! The manager who worked with us was so helpful from start to finish and all of their staff were accommodating and polite to everyone in our group. Did I mention this place has its own parking lot? That’s a rare find anywhere downtown Columbus, and made it very convenient for out of town guests who aren’t familiar with the area. I highly recommend CBC for a good meal with your friends or for a private group outing; you won’t be disappointed!"

Madtree Brewing Company Beer Dinner


We here at CBC Restaurant welcome the crisp smell and crunchy leaves that Fall brings to CBUS! We celebrate our favorite season with our kickoff of Taps of Terror, where our taps get invaded with exquisitely crafted creepy elixirs. We have viciously vied for some of the state's most limited batches, so if you missed it this time around, be sure to catch up with us for next years terrifying takeover. 

We also celebrated the intro to fall with a Madtree Brewing Company Beer Dinner. The Cincinnati brewing company is almost always guaranteed to have a beer on tap here, they serve up some pretty tasty suds. 

We started the dinner with grilled oysters served two ways, a smoked bacon fondue and a sriracha hollandaise, accompanied by the Shade Gose beer- a light and crisp blackberry sea salt gose.

Our second course received rave reviews, as it was both perfectly delicious and interactive! The herb roasted bone marrow with garlic buttered crostini, was served A-La-Luge, accompanied by the Identity Crisis porter. Guests were encouraged to shoot the beer down the bone after indulging in the tasty marrow. This was especially a treat for the Birthday girl and her group of friends as they created many "instagram-able" moments! 

Course three was a homage to the infamous Pumpcan beer loved by all fans of the Madtree Brewing Co. We served up braised short ribs soaked in Pumpcan, with a pillowy potato gnocchi, roasted root veg and a brown butter demi glace. The Pumpcan beer was also served with the option of a sugar rim which threw an additional level comfort to this cuddle worthy course.

We finished the event with a raspberry cream cheese danish, folded with mascarpone and fresh raspberries. We toasted this last course with the Vernal Beckoning Belgian IPA. And as the evening ended, smiles and full bellies were amidst the friendships that were made.

Special thanks to Mike from Cavalier for hosting the event & Chef Matt from CBC Restaurant for channeling his inner master mind and bringing this rock star menu to life!
