Visit for the scenery ONLY!

We've eaten at several Hooters and stop at this one usually 4 or so times a year after a Reds or Bengals game. The service is always bad and the food is usually cold. (I usually just have a beverage and appetizer) We ventured here last night for a girls night, a group of 6 adults. Our server didn't... read more

It's Hooters, with good wings and good service. I was talked into a "double" for $1.50 extra. Could not tell it was a double. I sat at the bar and overlooked the kitchen. It was dirty and a little beat up looking, I guess due to its age.

This Hooters is pretty much the same as you would get anywhere except the view of the river was nice. Thought it sucks that you can smoke in there but we had a nice time and the food was good as usual. Staff was good to.

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.
