We have eaten here every year that we come to the convention in Cincinnati. The menu is varied, the food outstanding and the location overlooking the river is wonderful. I had the Steak fajitas, which were fabulous. The boys loved their kids meals, and my wife was very happy with her New York Strip steak. The staff are very fast,... More

Went for dinner with my family. The poor service started when we called ahead for seating. The lady who answered said" what do you want" after I repeated myself 3 times. We decided to go anyway as we wanted a place with a view. We got there late, around 9:30 pm on a Saturday but were seated promptly. Our drinks... More

I have been to the restaurant several times. I have gotten something different each time and have never been disappointed. The service is also first glass. While eating you have a great view of the Ohio river and Cincinnati. It is also a short walk to the Newport Levee. If you go you have to try the cheese boulders!

This restaurant is a busy, busy place to eat, so if you don't have time to wait, they have call-ahead seating. During the warmer weather, I enjoy sitting on the deck which overlooks the Ohio River. They also have seating by some large windows with a view of the river. They start you off with rolls with cinnamon butter to... More

Food is excellent and the atmosphere is nice but relaxed. Spring is coming and the outdoor patio along the river is a great place to enjoy a meal or a drink and watch some March Madness.

We chose Buckhead for a late birthday dinner. The atmosphere is nice but the restaurant seems confused. It's very cabin/rustic but the city view of the river says otherwise. Our waiter was good - he was attentive and patient. Everything came out perfectly and beverages were kept full. We started with Fried Green Tomatoes. They were basic. Definitely lacked seasoning...

Try their buffalo chilli. It's excellent. The service is very good and the inside reminds you of Wyoming or Montana. Very good choice if you're staying close by and very roomy interior.

I absolutely love the look and feel of this restaurant. The lodge style, large timbers, wood plank, logs, rock... I just love it! And the view is fabulous, sitting on a great perch to watch the barges navigating the Ohio River. The food is slightly less exciting, only slightly. It isn't bad, quite the opposite. It is just average and... More

On a previous visit, I had the delicious Pot pie (Chicken). I really wanted it again, but decided I was in a "beefy" mood for dinner. I had the Pot Roast this time. There is a large order, but I opted for the small order, which was ample for me. The beef is served on bread, smothered in a rich... More
