Sunday Brunch

There is a nice selection for the brunch buffet. There is also a waffle station and an omelet station. The cook at the omelet station was very nice and made one of the best I have ever had. Unfortunately the goetta was very crispy to say the least. We told the server and she said she gets that... read more

While in Cincinnati on business I stopped in for dinner. The view of the city skyline across the river is fantastic. The food was OK. I got a strip steak smothered in onions and mushrooms. The steak was cooked to my specifications. It was a decent piece of meat but nothing to brag about. For sides I got steamed broccoli... More

We've not been to Buckheads in a year. It had been a nice place on the Ohio River for a good meal. Last night we were very disappointed. We oredred hot brown and Buckhead Mountain Pie (chicken pot pie). The hot brown had no taste and the pot pie was all crust and very little filling. The server did fine... More

Walked over to BMG tonight from the Comfort Inn and they did not disappoint. The sirloin I ordered was cooked perfectly and the rolls were fresh. The only complaint I would have is the anchovies were very strong in the Caesar salad. The hostess was friendly and the waiter was very attentive without smothering. Will definitely return again.

Always a pleasure eating there. Really great atmosphere, with a feeling of being in a lodge in the mountains or a ski lodge. Then too top it off they have excellent food along with amazing service. I've tried seven different meals there & haven't been disappointed yet. I highly recommend the Ky Hot Brown & Fried Green Tomatoes, OMG!!! I'm... More

A very diverse menu. Anybody can find something they like on this menu. Reasonably priced. An excellent choice for treating out of town guests. For the food and the view.

Great location overlooking the Ohio river - nice bar with lots of draft beers - free parking outside too. Service friendly and efficient - Tip? Ask for a view of the river - at night the view is tremendous As for food, the fried green tomatoes are great - and the salmon was good but a bit dry as overcooked... More

I can only base this off their appetizer: Nacho Mountain. It was huge, good for four people easy. It ended up being our tarter and finisher. Great taste and quality. Great views looking over the river and into Cincinnati.Looking forward to our next trip.
