There was at least a 30 minute wait for a table, so it was suggested I order a to-go order and eat it on the patio of JBFins. I placed a to-go order and came back in the suggested 30 minutes to be told to come back in 5. I came back in 5 and waited for someone to come... More

This Hooters is right down on the river. We went there to watch the football playoffs. We had an appetizer of the cajun wings. They were pretty good. The service was excellent. The view of the water was really a nice feature.

After a Cincinnati Reds game, we stopped at Hooters for an early dinner and a cold drink. Well, the first problem was "NO SERVICE".....thats correct, we sat there for 15 to 20 minutes before I called the manager (on my cell phone) to report the service issue. The manager promptly came to our table to apologize and hustle up someone... More

As I'm sitting here at Hooters enjoying the beautiful view, the table next to me made up of one man of approx 70 years old and 11 Hooters girls, some on the clock, some not. All of them are loud, using very foul language and bragging of how many Crowns they've shot. There are 4 tables of young children around,... More

Food was good, once we got a waitress to take our order. There were two and three waitress' at different tables, sitting and talking, so there were enough staff on hand. I know they have areas and tables to work, but letting customers sit for 30-40 minutes before a waitress shows up, is unnecessary.

They are are very good resturant. Always enjoy the takeout staff. If you can make it there early because once it gets busy they can lose track of your food, and after 20 minutes of waiting your looking around and find it sitting on the ledge behind you. However o verall its an excellent place!!! very frequent customers!!!

First, we called ahead for our large group and when we got there we waited over an hour for our tables. After that, every time we needed something, we had to go find our waitress. We were starving by the time we got our food! On a good note, the food was good. If you go, expect to wait.

This was the worst dining experience I have ever had. Waitress was terrible. Forgot silverware,drinks, food and made very little effort to correct it. How many times do you have to ask a waitress to bring you something? Four or Five? I don't know how Hooters lets this dump ruin their name.
