I realize that this is a popular night time venue, and it must be much different than it was when I ate lunch here with some friends. The owner, Rhonda, was very nice, and the server for my group was great. The women's restroom was...More

GREAT pretty much explains EVERYTHING about Arnold's Bar & Grill! The two buildings that make up Arnold's Bar and Grill were built in the late 1830's. Simon Arnold opened his tavern in 1861 in the same room that continues as the oldest bar in the...More

This is by far the coolest place in the great town of Cincinnati!!! Great food (especially if you like chicken and waffles), a cool bar and a jug band! It really doesn't get any better than Arnold's. Great for a date night or a night...More
