“Nice Lunch”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

On the newly developed "Banks Area" Holl Grail is a nice choice for lunch etc. Sparse on-street parking because it is across the street from GABP (Home of The Reds) but this is a nice place to stop in for a drink or to dine. Sports Bar with about 20 or more flatscreens showing sports from around the country. Friendly wait staff and the food was good and a value.

Family friendly or a great place to watch the game if you are on your own.

“decent place to hang on game day”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is another one of those places -- fun place to grab some food and beer with friends before the game. The energy is great and everyone is there to have fun. There is a good variety of food and drinks. The staff is OK - it's a bar that is focused on high volume - not customer service - the bartenders weren't rude but they didn't really give out positive/friendly vibes. It's what it is - good/fun place to hang out before or after a game, or to come watch sports one of the many TV's. I'd go back.

“Service was not that great”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

We went with a group of 8 and they put us on this middle bar thing which was not ideal. They messed up an order and made one of our party members wait while everyone else was already served. Food was ok...nothing to brag about. Definitely go for the bar scene and sporting events meet up, but not the best place for a meal.

“Good food, crappy matre' d staff”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Forget getting a reservation, or for that matter trying to get a table for more than are right with you at the time. Someone parking a car? Too bad, no seat for you!

Good food, nice wait staff but they clearly don't know how to please their customers - in fact, the seem to delight in abusing them. Made if very clear they were doing you a favor to "grant" you a seat. Their policies cost them four meals. If the food hadn't been as tasty as it was, they'd have been lucky to get one star. Avoid this place - go where they appreciate their customers!

“Worth a visit even if you're not going to a Reds game”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

I had some time to kill before going to a Reds game and found Holy Grail. The place was packed, so I ambled up to the bar and found myself ight at home with the locals, who immediately engaged me in pleasant conversation.

The service is outta this world with the fastest bar maids in Cincinnati! I really enjoyed my visit, so much so I drowned my sorrows after the Reds lost. Give Holy Grail a try, I think you'll feel at home like I did!
