Our group of 15 came here one night after the Cincinnati Tennis Tournament. Established in 1861 with plenty of character and set up in an old house, we enjoyed the live jazz music while seated in their quaint outdoor courtyard. The service was friendly and the food choices ranged from Italian, Greek, Mexican and American.

I do not know what all the raves are about, I thought the food was mediocre at best. Service was fine. too bad there is no AC.

Arnold's is the keeper of Cincinnati "homegrown" (e.g beer, history, art, people, music)---No night captures the continuing soul of Arnold's better than the 1st Saturday of any month, when the Cincinnati Dancing Pigs pull out their washboards, jugs, strings etc and treat us to a night of rivertown sound. Arnold's courtyard, the Pigs and a pitcher of your favorite brew make for a wonderful experience: all time and troubles are suspended. The food is reliable, with a good effort at healthy and fresh---but, the food is sort of beside the point: you don't go to Arnold's just for food, you go to Arnold's to be at home.

I really wanted to like Arnolds' so much that I have gone three times in the last month. Service is terrible, food is bad, and lets not get started on the beer. Hudy? Really something were better left for dead.
The waitresses are rude, and they act like they could care less about your comfort. As neat as the place is on the inside, you would do better to drop in grab a beer and leave.
