Go on a nice day and sit outside

The food was average. I got cheese boulders (yum) and a portabella sandwich (needs to be jazzed up somehow). The place was jammed with people but our server was accommodating and timely. The main thing is that you can sit outside in the evening and see a beautiful sky over the Ohio river. That made... read more

I have been here 3 times now and all 3 times I have been disappointed. The service is usually poor and the food is just so, so. They have such a great location, it could be so much better. Twice I have gone an the order has been messed up, the waiter never goes out of his way to make... More

When we return to Cincinnati for a visit my wife likes to have lunch with her friends and enjoy the river view of Cincinnati. Buckhead Mountain Grill Is a perfect spot for both and once again it added to the enjoyment of our trip back home. About an hour into our seven hour trip back to where we live we... More

My Husband and I always loved this place when we lived in Cincinnati. We moved to Tennessee a year ago, and decided to stop by for dinner while in town last weekend. We stopped by on a Sunday evening and sat out on the deck. The view was beautiful as always, but that was the best they had to offer... More

Nice place on the river, good food, decent service, and great views.....the occasional paddle boat still cruises down the river. Will eat here again!

Food in general was very good, but my steak was over-seasoned. The waitress was very good. She took the steak off the bill and offered other options. Can't say enough about the service!!! The view was also amazing!

While there is a variety of food, nothing really stands out as special or extraordinary. I no longer order steaks. They aren't cooked right. Best dish would probably be the Manhattan Roast Beef. Prices are comparable to others "on the river". Drinks/beers are a little pricy - ask for the specials.

We went for the Sunday Brunch buffet which starts at 10:00 AM.At that time it was not busy and service was very good.The food was good and included regional specialties like goetta.It was very relaxing just watching the activity on the river.I considered it to be reasonably priced.

We have eaten here multiple times and again on 6/2/15, and I just now am getting around to reviewing This restaurant. Large bar and dining area. Casual and comfortable. Service was really good (thanks, Shannon!). Menu is varied with burgers, steaks, pasta and fish entrees. Steaks are above average and a good value. Boulder Bites and fried green tomatoes are...
