Walking around looking for a beer and sandwich when I looked down this alley beyond construction and found a gem.

Sat at bar and it was like a different version of cheers. A neighborhood bar in the inner city! It was awesome. Beers were well priced, bartender was extremely nice. Clientele all knew each other and didn’t mind a stranger in their midst. Ate the Reuben and enjoyed some NCAA basketball with the locals.

Reuben was amazing!

An Irish pub like an Irish pub should be. Cozy atmosphere and just a short walk from Great American Ballpark. Reuben sandwich (with homemade sauce) was the best I've ever eaten. Stopped by the next day and tried the Rachel-- just as delicious. Won't go anywhere else before or after a Reds game when visiting Cincinnati!

I was at Blind Pig having some beers and watching the Bengals game nov 12. Ordered food and never got it.
Wouldn’t be a big deal but it’s the second time it’s happened since we moved next door 4 weeks ago.
Great for a beer but Find another place to go if you want good service.

Over from England to watch the Bengals and we spent a lot of time in this place. We were made to feel very welcome by all. The bar staff are very friendly. The service is quick, the food is good and the beer is cold. What more could you want??

We stopped here after getting drenched at Bengals game. This is a VERY loud and lively place with outdoor seating (when it’s not raining) The bar is long and narrow and gets very crowded. The service is surprisingly fast and friendly. Highly Recommend.
