Not happy with my dinner. Loved the view. Service was fine. Would go again but just get a hamburger. The grilled white fish was awful. Almost like it wasn't cooked enough. The others with me liked their food but there was so much food no one could eat it all. Not a bad thing

Great go-to place for a quick and tasty lunch. Plenty of free parking available. The buffalo chili is always delicious. Can't beat the view too!

Went here for a quick meal. The prices on the menu are reasonable and come with large portions. Very good service. This is in a great location right next to the river. I went in January and it was cold outside. I can't wait to go back in the summer when the outdoor patio is open.

We both ate the chicken on rice. It was a great dinner and highly suggest it. The appetizer was the chips and queso.

This is a great place with good food. When I fly into Cincinnati, OH, my bro and I always stop for lunch at this place right on the river. It's become a tradition. Beautiful views of the Ohio River and Downtown Cincy.

It was NOT worth the cost. Service was TERRIBLE. WE waited 20 min to plqce our order than it took another 30 to get it. Then we waited for at least another 30 min.

I've been to Buckhead a few different times and have never been blown away, or disappointed. This is one of those places that has decent food and the prices are reasonable.

My husband and I seen this place right on the river. We order the steak and ribs meal each that came with two sides each. I am picky about my ribs and these were great, came right off the bone. The portions were large, worth the price. Which I get price were comparison with most "steak" houses.

This is nice chain restaurant on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River. It has outdoor dining wit a river view. The indoor bar area has a dozen televisions with unrestricted views. The food was good and the menu choices are varied. Portion size is ample. The bar has ten or twelve beers on tap, with several local craft beers.

We were a party of 15. We called ahead just to make sure they could accommodate us. They could, we arrived and we were seated fairly quickly. Drink orders taken right away. Server was very pleasant. The decor is woodsy. Plenty of seating and very roomy meaning the tables were spaced nicely. Full bar. I ordered the pork chop with... More
