“Exceptional place: fun, historic, in business since 1937”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

As Mt. Adams has been revitalized, Crowley's Highland House has remained the same for 75 years, and still owned by the Crowley family. Pictures of the founders don the walls, and some of the staff have been there 25+ years as well. Very friendly, no frills, and reasonably priced. Every time I'm in Cincinnati, I can't wait to get to Crowley's!

“Great bar there's no food, but the perfect place for a shot and a beer.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

This "local" hangout is the perfect little "hole in the wall." No frills, just darts, drinks and a good time.

“Must See”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2011

If you get to Mt. Adams and want a brew in a friendly local neighborhood bar this is it. No loud music and not really a 'bar scene' type of place. Just a small, quiet, laid back, sit at the bar joint. Tom the bartender is quite a fixture there. Will chat with you if you wish but is not overbearing or annoying and knows the area very well and can give you pointers on what to see, etc. This is NOT a place to go if you are hungry to eat a complete dinner. Snacks, some limited bar food and that's it, yet it's well worth a stop if you're on the hill.
