Longtime famous rib restaurant's flagship location banks of Ohio River. Great slow cooked ribs smothered in secret family barbeque sauce has been long-time Cincinnati classic. Baked chicken is good too. Great views of Ohio River. Ample room but get there early as wait can be long on Friday and Saturday nights.

It's sad. Such a great property and used to be the "buzz" of Cincinnati. Granted, Cincinnati has stepped up its game with new restaurants recently (OTR, etc.). But these guys had the top spot and just seemed ok with letting it go. Things aren't plated well. The food tastes like they are going for volume not the flavor or experience.... More

Right after me and my wife moved to Cincinnati, we decided to try out their famous bbq. It is over priced, for not freshly bbq food. Meat is over cooked; not a slow cooked process they use. I wouldn't call their sauce a bbq sauce, instead I would call it a maple syrup on top of the dry meat. If... More

What is usually pretty good food and service didn't happen tonight. Waited 1 hour 20 minutes for our food and then the ribs were burnt, the Saratoga chips were not crispy, and the clam chowder was not very good. All we got was "sorry for your wait". Probably will not come back next time I'm in Cincinnati.

I wish I would love it but I don't. The BBQ sauce is not my favorite and I leave here feeling a little ill every visit. The rotisserie chicken is my favorite option. Top notch service.

My brother recommended this to my family and it was great. We were seated quickly (we had a reservation which was easy to make) and the service was great. There were multiple assistant servers to help with refills and remove plates that were dirty and not being used. The food was terrific. They are known for their ribs, honestly I've... More
