Food is ok, good ambience at the courtyard. Went for lunch but I believe they have live music. There's a small stage at the corner of the courtyard. Not that impressed with the food. Had greek deluxe and chicken and waffles. Good selection of beers.

Went for a late night anniversary meal. Was able to make reservations. Nice atmosphere, good food with gluten free options and wonderful service. We'll go back for sure!

Husband and I were on a weekend get-a-way and happened upon Arnold's. It's a quaint place with a nice atmosphere. I simply had wings and a salad, my husband had the Crabcake sandwich and fries, the food was great! The staff was exceptional. Nice little spot, we'll visit again. Tip..sit in the outside patio!

It's a little cramped but it's a really cool old bar. The food has some twists and is very good. There is a good beer selection. A great atmosphere. It was a good place to have a meal and a beer before a game. I'll be back.

We decided to try the oldest restaurant in cinncinnati And we loved it. It was not very crowded and the band was nice. Even though we did not know any of the songs they did.

See title! We sat in the open backyard(?) of the restaurant and had a really enjoyable meal. There was a musical duo performers (not too noisy) which added to the ambiance and the waitress (Hali?) was very cheerful. In the end I was so taken with the place I bought a beer glass as a memento of the visit!

I had recently taken a Date there and it wasn't very busy. We were seated in an area that did not have a roof. They were to have live music, which was a plus. The 2 people that were there to perform, had to cut their act short after a couple songs, as it began to rain. I had ordered... More

I checked their hours on their web site before visiting. They advertised they were open until 2:30 but when I got there at 1 they had already had last call.

We loved the historic location. The food choices were good and the beer choices were awesome. In nice weather you can eat in a semi enclosed courtyard.
