“Eat Here Because It's a Piece of Cincinnati”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Rookwood pottery is such a part of the unique offerings of Cincinnati that one MUST eat at the Rookwood and experience the seating arrangements that fill the space around the huge old kilns. The goat cheese and green apple salad is oh-so yummy.

“Outstanding Service and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

Our group of 8 had a wonderful experience at the Rookwood. Food was fun and delicious. Great variety from Fried Bacon, Pork Belly Sandwich, to Pasta of the Day. Even better was the service we received sitting in a kiln. Special place.

“Unique decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I went especially to try the hamburgers and I was not disappointed
I tried the fried fish mmm
Check it out online, you will learn more about the restaurant.

My wife took a soup, and ask for a basket of bread (she had to pay extra for that :o() )

Will certainly come back.

“Great Apps.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Love their appetizers. Deep fried bacon is to die for! Desserts are also a must have such as the krispy kreme donut bread pudding. The ice cream is always a hit too. Love the atmosphere and location as well. Love bringing friends and family from out of town to this place. We always have great service here as well.Try the fig burger. It's also excellenct.

“Love Eating in the Kilns!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Came here on a quiet Tuesday evening. The staff was very friendly, attentive and very knowledgeable about their menu and bar selections. Every aspect of the meal was wonderful; tasty appetizers (love the olives!), delicious salads and expertly prepared sandwiches. The icing on top is an opportunity to have your meal in one of the old pottery kilns! It makes for a very intimate evening for your dinner party. It forget that your not the only people there.
