Not as good as usual!

I usually love Hooters food but we went there for lunch on a Monday and was told we couldn't sit outside due to short staffing. So we sat inside but still had poor service! We ordered a beer and a soft drink; she brought the soft drink but started sweeping the floors. We saw the draft beer... read more

Hooters Newport has a beautiful facility with incredible views of the Ohio River and Cincinnati, and the food at this location is pretty good. Unfortunately, the service is desperately lacking. I was seated at a dirty table, and didn't even receive a menu until a manager came over. It was nice of him to bring me a beer. However, he... More

This visit was just awesome. Waitress was extra nice, manager stopped by and was fantastic, the wings were really good, their was a... More

Friends ordered Sangria and they were completely different colors and tasted different. Our waitress was nice. The couple next,to us did not,get,their appetizers. She was told that... More

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 know... 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
