Allyn's is definitely a good local's place and people who live around the area know it's a hidden jem. The food is really good and they have a great variety of options you wouldn't expect. The outdoor seating is perfect during the warmer days and their drink selection is top notch. It's just a great place to hang out, grab... More

I wasn't sure what to expect, but the food and service were excellent. My portion of the special seafood alfredo was too big for me to finish on my own even though it was so good I really wanted to eat all of it. My husband had his meal and decided to try mine. He liked it so well that... More

Allyn's has been a mainstay in Columbia-Tusculum for years. They have an eclectic menu featuring Cajun and Mexican items, as well as normal pub grub like wings and burgers. The beer list is very extensive, including lots of local craft beers from the Cincinnati area. Nice bar area with TVs, or a quieter dining area upstairs.

Allyn's has always been a great neighborhood joint. Good food, good beer and wine, and good conversation at the bar. It seems the menu has been simplified recently, but my two favorites are still there - Mardi Gras Pasta, and Red Beans and Rice. Can't go wrong with either. My wife really likes the Black Bean salad with the jalapeño... More

We went to Allyn's with my sister and brother in law who live around the block. The restaurant was clean and the staff was friendly. The beer selection was good and fair priced. My SIL got the wrap which she really enjoyed. My BIL got the jambalaya and the portion was gigantic-- he got the dinner portion and not the... More

Good atmosphere... decent prices, but great diverse menu. Food is very good. Portions are plentiful... Service is friendly... sometimes slower than desired, but I return regularly for the food. Good stuff!

My wife and I stopped in here during Cincinnati Beer Week. We love that they trimmed down their menu from the first time we ate here (about 5 years ago). The food choices are now basic, comfortable, and reasonably priced. The service is great. And the beer selection makes this place one of our favorite stops.

I was somewhat skeptical when Allyn's remodeled a couple of years ago and updated their bar area -- was afraid the place would lose its comfortable, relaxed feel. And while the new bar does have a more upscale look and feel about it, the rest of the place is as awesome as ever. Tons of beers to choose from and... More
