good family setting and good food

Our group had a variety of selections off the menu, I had the meatloaf and it was surprisingly good. Others had burgers and salad and they were pleased. Also it was a nice evening to look out and watch the river traffic.

While traveling to Ohio we wanted to stop and eat somewhere on the Ohio River. The view of the Cincinnati skyline was great, barges going up the river as well as some boats. The meals we had were delicious, especially the salad we ordered with strawberries, feta cheese and pecans. It was enough for two people to share. The service... More

Great food and plenty of it. Service was good, a little slow, but the food was worth the wait. Good view of the Cincinnati skyline and the Ohio River.

We went to Buckhead’s in Newport, KY last Saturday night. They do not take reservations but do something called “call-ahead seating”. Simply call and tell them what time you would like to come in, they put your name on the list and seat you as soon as a table becomes available, as close to your requested time as possible. I...

My teens and I ate here before going to park nearby and walk along the Riverwalk and Purple People Bridge. The restaurant was clean, food was good, and service and prices were average. Being gluten free, I have to be careful where I eat but was feeling like I needed to go for a salad after traveling and eating heavy... More

Buckhead has a Sunday brunch buffet that is awesome. We got there around 1000 am and were immediately seated. My dad recommend going before 1100 as it gets really crowded when the churches let out. The selection was amazing and the food was incredibly. I was a bit disappointed that we completely missed the omelet bar. We were all so... More

Very disappointing. a bit pricy for this type of food. I would not go back. It was lunch time - but I have eaten here before and service/food awesome. So I will blame that day of service. Try again - not sure.

Had weeknight dinner. Not crowded but not empty at 8:30. Our table had a great view of the river and cinci. Waiter seemed to be high school or young college age. As a result all the errors are more lack of management and training. No serious stuff (eg our dinners were served about two minutes after we got our salads).... More

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
