You come for the view here....not kidding. A great spot to enjoy the Ohio River and Cincinnati skyline from the outdoor porch. They have delicious wings and other good appetizer, sports pub selections. Worth a visit after a game or concert or on a beautiful spring, summer or fall evening.

First off, let me say that this is one of the coolest locations on the river. Literally floating on the water, high ceilings, huge picture windows, pointing directly across the river - beautiful. The food is very average but it is what you expect from Hooters. This location isn't any better or worse than any other Hooters in the US.... More

Service was horrible. Waiting on a table and there were a lot open horrible. Bobble head night at the Reds. One would think management would be prepared. Took forever to get out food and WE MISSED first boat across and the bobble head hand out. Wanted to get one each for our grandsons. Worse service ever. Even at the bar.... More

Food was good and the waitress was very helpful when we asked what there was to do around there to do. Everyone was very friendly. Good food for a good price.

Was sitting on deck to listen to live band. Took too long to get waited on and this was after asking a server to take our order (she said she had other tables to take care of and just left) Finally got a very attentive employee - food was better than I remember coming from a Hooters.

Nice place and really friendly staff. I you want to have a nice dinner its better to avoid this place because the quality of the food was low compared to other places in the city.

Starts out; service pretty slow; order beer, beer was warm, ordered food, food was cold, dumpy manager came over he didn't have a clue he was too busy trying to impress the Hooter Girls. Definitely not a good experience

The service was great. But the food we ordered, not so good. The nachos had one scoop of chili sauce or whatever it is, dumped in the middle. The sliders were just ok.

The food was good. We got wings, sliders and chili. The service was very good. I've been to a few hooters and this was by far the best experience I've had. It's well lit, clean, and the staff is gorgeous and hospitable. They were very sweet to my son, which is always a bonus. We will definitely go back.

Thank graceisface
