I went this weekend on our Cincy vacation just for the Blueberry chicken showing on the Tripadvisor menu. I am allergic to gluten and am not used to having delicious options like that, so I was pretty excited about dinner. While looking at the menu,...I saw it wasn't listed. I was deciding on another option, but told the waitress how I had come just for that dish. The owner came out, and said even though it wasn't on the menu any longer, they had all the ingredients there, and made it for me. It was wonderful! So kind of them to do and lesson learned about Tripadvisor menus!More

The food we ordered was fresh, and tasted very good. The sangria was made perfectly as well! Overall, great experience and I will definitely go back to visit.

We went to Arnold’s for New Year’s Eve with two other couples. The atmosphere is fantastic! Such a cool building with lots of history. Our group was taken upstairs to a room with another group of about 8 people. Our server was friendly and helpful....I had the shrimp and grits which was good. Others had the steak and fries and thought they had fantastic flavor. My only issue I found was that the portions weren’t as big as I would have expected, even with the salad. There was a enclosed patio that had live music as well, but we didn’t spend any time out there. Overall, great food and atmosphere for the price.More

On our way to Cincinnati we were listening to WLW and heard the tail end of an interview with the chef of Arnold's. By coincidence, the next day, we were in downtown Cincinnati for a Saturday matinee concert. After the concert we decided we would...like to eat and thought of Arnold's. We looked up the location, and it was literally three blocks from where we were, so it was pretty much a no brainer to go there! We walked over, and were seated right away. (Timing is everything, we just beat the rush!) We were seated in the courtyard, which was rather noisy. The tables are close together as well. We ordered the brussels sprouts as an appetizer and went with sandwiches for our main courses. The sandwiches come with a bag of chips on the side. It would have looked a little nicer to have them out of the bag, but that's being picky on my part. The sprouts were good, the aioli sauce made them great. We ordered the Notorious P.I.G., Arnold Burger, and the Fried Green Tomato BLT. It was the sauces that made these theses sandwiches soooooo good! We will definitely keep Arnold's Bar and Grill on our list of places to go to when we visit Cincinnati!More

We got to hear a bluegrass band in the atrium music room while enjoying drinks and their classic Greek spaghetti. Would of appreciated a larger portion of pasta.

Business dinner at this lovely bar & grill. It has been around forever and some menu items have stood the test of time too. The Greek Deluxe pasta was amazing. So light for a pasta dish. The deep fried deviled eggs were awesome. The staff...was great with 10 people, 7 different bills and delivery of food.More
