This resturant is located on the banks of the Ohio river across from Cincinnati, if it's warm, grab a seat outside along the river. Inside is very pretty wood rafters and setting. Service is always good and the portions are generous. A wide menue from sandwiches to steaks and ribs. They have a very large fish sandwich on rye. Would... More

I went here with my 1955-57 Thunderbird Car Club and was favorably impressed. There were about 18 of us, and they handled the service very well. (Our server was Lisa.) The menu (food) was quite varied as were the drink choices. Outdoor dining is available, but we sat inside as it was a bit cool. We had a great view... More

We were staying close and the motel recommended it and we got discount for staying there. We were pleased. Still a bit pricey with discount. Food good but again bit overpriced.

This restaurant used to be a favorite place to eat on past trips. I had heard on my last trip that the quality had diminished. They were right. My steak (ordered medium) was well done and bland. My draft beer was flat and had a metallic taste to it. Service was also a bit slow considering that there were hardly... More

We arrived at 8PM on Sunday, closing time is 9PM, they seemed very disgusted that we were there at that time They seated up right under an A/C vent, we asked to be moved to a warmer booth and you would think we asked for the moon. The food was average at best salad was sure nothing to write home... More

They brought out a piece of chicken over cooked, with the charred side down. When my wife realized it she flipped it over. I tasted it and it was extremely dry. My wife told the waitress. She went to the kitchen and came back and said it was just the seasoning. The waitress said she was new, but knew it... More

Years ago the everything I ordered was terrific. I have not enjoyed a meal here in the last two years, even things that should be spot-on (cold chili, for example). The patio on the river keeps drawing me back in anyway and there is a bar outside in the warmer months.
