“Great bar food, 150+ beers on tap”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Fantastic food. The restaurant is nice and open and airy. Very similar to Moerlein Lager house and Keystone Bar and Grill except the food is slightly better and they have way more beers on tap. Great place to drink at.

“Great new place. If you trying new/different beer this is the place...”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

A new place to try at The Banks in downtown Cincinnati. You will not be disappointed, except maybe with the wait as this is a new place and a busy place. They have more beers than you could imagine. Our waitress seemed to know all of them, she was able to describe them to taste and she recommended ones to us based on what we normally drink. The food was very good with no complaints with anyone in my party. Sure to become a favorite place in Cincinnati.

“Great Beer Selection”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

My wife and I have been twice within the last month. Once after a game just for beers and then for dinner and of course, more beer. We had the Kung Pao Calamari appetizer which was excellent and I had the Mac & Cheese for dinner which was really good as well. My wife had the Lobster Noodles and she said it would have been better if it wasn't so salty.

We went on a Saturday night (no Reds game) and be prepared for a wait. There is a lot to see around the restaurant so we went walking while we waited.

It took 35 minutes for our appetizer to arrive and 37 minutes for our meals. One of the managers brought our appetizer out, apologized and removed it from our bill.

From our experience and those of others who have written reviews, the management is very aware of issues and it's great to see them taking responsibility and working through them. It's a great addition to the city and we'll be back.

“Lunch before a Reds game.”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

The Yard House is a block away from Great American Ballpark. Really busy because of a Reds game that day but they were prepared for a busy day. The service way really good. My daughter ordered a flatbread pizza and it was burnt but a manager caught it before it left the kitchen so he had another one made while my wife and I got our meals. He also had it taken off our bill. I thought that the fact that he was very proactive about taking care of us, was great service. Huge beer selection.

“Great happy hour”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Yard House has a huge bar with plenty of surrounding room, and a large covered patio with good views. 143 beers on tap and a broad food selection (snacks, appetizers, pizza) with good pricing for happy hour. My wife and I enjoyed 3 beers and 1 martini plus a pizza for $27 before tip. A good addition to the Banks!
