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.

This particular Hooters was ok. The flavor chicken I order wasn't all that great, but that could just be me. Service was pretty good and the experience was good overall.

Staying in Newport for a couple of days, wanted to try Hooters. Really neat, walking across the water on a boardwalk type bridge to get to the restaurant which appears to be on a stationary barge...idk, but awesome. We were greeted and seated immediately. My fiance ordered wings, I've read other reviews where people complained how long the food takes,... More

I travel to Cincinnati about every 4 years and eat one time at Hooters. This time the food was not up to par. They girls were wearing less clothes especially on their bottoms (showing more bum) but the wings were smaller and didn't have that oh yes wow factor. I tried their new wings that were wrapped in bacon with... More
