Went here to watch college football and enjoy their famous wings! This location has PLENTY of televisions and is a great atmosphere off the river. The Manager was very nice and tried to accommodate everyone with their game of choice on the nearest TV!

We went to this Hooters after the Bengals game so granted, they were busy. The waitress was slow to attend to us. We orders 2 beers, wings dry with the sauce on the side and the snow crab. The beers were brought out in about 10 minutes and were incorrect. The wings came out about 50 minutes later and those... More

Hooters is not my favorite place, but we were hungry and didn't want to drive any further, so we ate here. I must say the food was great. We had buffalo shrimp and honey thai chili pepper wings. It was great and this Hooter's offers a great view of Cincinnati across the river.

We were going to the Bengals and Browns game and decided to park on the Ky. side and have dinner here. We were going to catch the sern wheeler from here to the stadium. This is probably one of the better Hooter's that I have been too when it comes to the food quality. It took a while to get... More

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 sitting up on... 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

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
