    Whenever we come to OG we are disappointed, but we keep coming. My hubby gives good names to our choices: today's Chicken Marsala "fancy McNuggets" and Chianti 3 Meat "tastes like Home Depot smells"

    If you have 3 or less people in your party go look in the bar seating area. There are 3 tables and are almost always free.

    Check your silverware BEFORE you eat with it... nasty that they didn't before wrapping it in the napkin & putting it on our table - YUCK.

    Dont rush to order an appetizer. The soup and bread combined with the entree is often more than enough.
