We were visiting Fort Thomas and decided to try a local establishment. I’m so glad we chose Midway Cafe! The food was good (my husband said the wings were amazing!) The atmosphere was fun, too, as they had live music. Highly recommend!

While we were able to grab a table upon arrival and our drink orders were taken in a timely fashion, we had to wait an extended period before someone returned to take our food order. The wings were excellent, and when one of our party...wanted crispier wings than she had received, the issue was resolved in a timely fashion. One tip: If you have difficulty selecting a sauce for your wings -- and there are several tasty options -- I recommend asking for multiple flavors on the side.More

I am a native of western NY, birthplace of the chicken wing, so I set the bar pretty high when evaluating this greatest of bar foods. We recently moved to Fort Thomas, and despite the great wing reviews the Midway Cafe received from the locals,...I honestly wasn't expecting too much. Boy was I wrong! Their wings are fantastic!! Do I daresay best I have ever had? It seems blasphemous to say that, but I'm doing it. Best I have ever had! Sorry Buffalo, but these smoked wings are amazing! I'm so happy I live so close! And super friendly staff--just perfect.More

The Midway Cafe is the best place for wings and bourbon. They have an extensive selection of both. However, it is also a great family restaurant! The staff is very friendly and accommodating, and make you feel at home.

Super fun, casual atmosphere. Family friendly or a night out with friends. Outdoor seating when it’s nice outside. You can’t match their bourbon selection and their food is amazing!

Great small town place to have a bite to eat see friends and enjoy a pour of your favorite bourbon. We stoped in Saturday evening, hoping for a table outside but they were all full. Found a table inside, great atmosphere, menu is just right...and the bourbon selection is top notch. Staff was friendly and enjoying their evening. We had a great time.More

I stayed at a cute Airbnb near the tower park area - due to the coronavirus - to go is only option and the food was gross. I would go back and maybe try the wings served on a plate but nothing else - it’s...over priced and I’ve had better food from that pizza place down the street the day before.More

First time to visit this place, they advertise the best wings in town, if not the best they are for sure among the best, nice size with many options of sauces. Moderately priced and nice portions, service was very good, will,return and would recommend. The...burgers looked huge and large portion of fries.More

We got a carryout order of 4 varieties of the wings from Midway last night and they were a hit! I think the fact that they are smoked helps them not get soggy when carried out like so many other wings. We had the Cajun...dry rub, Wasabi teriyaki, spicy garlic and Buffalo. The texture and flavors were great! We will definitely be back!More

We had a great dinner at Midway Cafe. We started with the fried pickles and carolina gold wings. Very yummy, some of the best wings. We had the southee, couple rib eye steak sandwiches and one of the burgers. Their fried chips were also excellent....We had a wonderful, kind waitress who attends college and was home on break. She was attentive and helpful in making our decisions.More
