Great Seafood Place

A pleasant nautical atmosphere. The food was outstanding. The twin lobster tails were very tender and tasty. The hushpuppies were so soft, maybe the best ever. The service was excellent, pleasant and efficient.

You can get a nice view of the river if seated in a good area. Food is above average, but then again you'll pay the price. Good overall place when your looking for a cut above type restaurant.

My husband and I shared a plate of fish tacos and the BBQ bacon shrimp. Both were very tasty and filling. We were there during lunch time and it wasn't very crowded. Our waitress was friendly and kept us with fresh drinks but was overbearing.

Very tasty and full of flavor. I recommend taking them up on the offer and getting some sourdough bread. Best I've had. The food was excellent and was presented very well on the plate. Only complaint I had in regards to the food was the fact that the portions were a little small. Other than that prices were average, the... More

Great location, lots of great happy hour specials, or a special dinner! Great view of downtown Cincy!

Lots of seafood and non seafood options. Service is good, and bar tending is also very good with a lot of cocktail options. We dined with two other couples and everyone had a different entree. All were very good.

Oh my gosh, thought I died & went to seafood happy hour heaven! The ambiance was lovely. Up-scale environment located right on the river. The bar didn't have the riverfront view I had hoped for, but, if dining in the restaurant, I'm sure you'd be pleased. The drink specials were great, premium pints for $4. Sold! The appetizer specials were... More

This used to be an excellent restaurant and was packed with long waits. Should have suspected something was up when we walked into an empty place at 7:30 on Friday night. Service was spotty (even with nobody there), food was unevenly and undercooked badly in spots, prices had gone way up and we got the wrong bill. I don't recommend... More

We visited Mitchell's Fish House after going to the aquarium. It was a late lunch/early dinner. The waiter was great, friendly, fun and made suggestions for the meal. The food was incredible, cooked well with lots of flavor. And lastly we had a table overlooking the river and Cincinnati and the view was wonderful, even on a rainy afternoon.

I have eaten at other Mitchell's Fish Markets and I was just as impressed with this one. It's clean and modern but still manages to have an upscale pub atmosphere. I was pleased to have a restaurant with fresh fish available in an area that rarely serves fresh fish. Be sure to ask for a seat by a window or... More
