Had fish tacos they were great, they were double shell, hard and soft but were very enjoyable. Beers are tasty, also got a makers mark burger and was delicious. Jalepeno breadsticks as an app and they were huge portion.

I have eaten in this chain in other cities and have always been satisfied. This one was below par in service (hard to get any attention) and food (so-so). Beer however, was excellent!

We were in town for a conference and had a table of 12. We were there on a week night but I'm guessing it wouldn't matter which night we had visited the place was packed and very lively. When we were seated the wait staff got right to work and took drink and appetizer orders. All these were delivered promptly... More

Usually enjoy food & service here. Today ordered "fish tacos" and did not realize there were multiple similar menu items. Mini street fish tacos I've had before are great and a good lighter entree. The Cajun fish tacos were disgustingly salty with double shell. Ick. Ick Ick

Decided to eat here Friday night December 12th before heading to US Bank Arena. At 5:30 there was a 30 minute wait, so if you are pressed for time, keep that in mind. Ordered the regular burger and hubby ordered the smashed and stacked burger. Enjoyed the meals very good. Ordered a few beers the Cincinnati light beer(I think that's... More

This restaurant is directly behind Cincinnati's main town square. it is kid friendly and serves very tasty burgers and micro brewed beers for the older crowd. I especially appreciated the space between the tables and ceiling height. It gave the place an open and welcoming feeling. I would definitely go there again. It is not gourmet food, but it is...

Food okay. Our server was great. We were there with 3 grandsons and he paid extra special attention to them. Food served hot. Only complaint was we had a loooooong wait. Next time we will call ahead. Good food.

I visited with a friend based on a recommendation from several others attending the same convention. It is located in Fountain Square and appears to be a popular spot. Plenty of laughter and lively conversations, yet still good for a family. Our server was Sara, a very pleasant young lady who was very informative and well informed. I tried the... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. Excellent choice. The food was delicious. All at our table were pleased. We looked to our server for menu recommendations and they were spot-on. Not a beer drinker, so I can't comment on the beer. Wish there was still a Rock Bottom Brewery in Cleveland!
