I eat at the bar, and the bartenders, Deanna, Amanda, Haley and okay, Scott, are all exceptional bartenders. I visit Cincinnati two to three weeks out of the year and eat here 90% of the time. Will cook to order to accommodate food allergies. To qualify two of my answers below, kid friendly definitely, but a limited selection for kids,... More

Nothing spectacular here. Seems to be frequented by business folks at lunch. Burgers are good with plentiful side orders, but for the price, they need to be. I would go back again only because it is convenient.

WE loved our steaks and prime rib here. They have nice large booths and you can linger and talk with your friends. Good for couples and date night. Excellent filet and salad. Service was a bit slow but you don't want to be in a rush here.

We normally go to the one near the Dayton mall but meet up with some friends from Kentucky here. They all got pasta .. the seafood Alfredo and others got the rattlesnake which does not contain rattlesnake. I opted for brunch fair .. the quiche which came wth potatoes and small salad. We all loved it.

Fellow traveler, there is a lot better places near by. Service was OK, at best. Food was not great and the price tag is ridiculous for what you get. A dinner at best, but priced as fine dining. Ambiance is just OK. No thank you.

I had dinner with a few friends and was thoroughly impressed with the service as well as the food. I had the 10 oz prime rib, mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. The food was seasoned to perfection. I didn't have to add salt, pepper or any sauces. The prime rib was so tender, it just melted in my mouth. The... More
