Come here primarily for great views of the city and the Ohio River below you. Try to get a table near the rail, on any of the four deck levels (higher may be better). The service was good, the drinks adequate and at OK prices. We did not order any food. Very few people here on our Monday visit on... More

They have the weakest and most over priced drinks of any place I have ever been. 3 rum cocktails in 2 hours and I could pass a breathalyzer. Stick with beer, still over priced but at least you know what you are getting.

Drinks are fairly priced and the view is amazing. After 11pm it mainly is 21-25 year olds. Haven't tried the food yet but it looks good!

We went there with friends for the Labor Day Fireworks. The service was excellent from Samantha and the views of the Cincinnati skyline are stunning. Great bar prices and Nice crowd. A little young but if you have your own group it is perfect spot to relax and enjoy the scene. Take a cab, as parking is tough

If you are over 25 don't bother going here. The DJs were extremely rude to me when I requested a song which was different from the same thing over and over and they refused and waived me off . The views of Cincinnati are beautiful from here but we will definitely be finding views from somewhere else in the city.

I love love loved this bar. We got a couple of drinks and went up to the top floor and looked out across the city. What a view. I love the Mount Adam area too. Eclectic shops, great food, and fun bars. This is the place to see in Cincinnati.

Amazing! The walk to Mt Adams was a little rough in the heat, but the walk was well worth it once we arrived. The view was outstanding. This was our first time to Mt Adams and we will be back! Great photo spot.

I went to Mt. Adams Pavilion when I was in college (in Columbus) and the view has stayed with me since. After eight years, I went to the Rookwood for lunch with my mom and asked the staff it was ok to leave our car in their parking lot since parking can be tricky on the narrow streets. We walked...

We were looking for a bar to wind down and get a river view on a Thursday night. On the advice of a local, we checked out Pavilion. Nice, lounge like atmosphere (music was a tad loud for the crowd that was there) on the inside and a 3-level patio with a great view of the river and bridges outside.... More
