Wow.... what can I say... Food was excellent... Beer was great... and the atmosphere... you gotta see for yourself.... you walk in to a bar scene and depending on how busy you can get a nice outside seating in a courtyard surrounded by buildings and not truly open aire but quite nice... or they take you upstairs to an interesting dining experience in a room with a bathtub...I kid you not... Spaghetti and Meatball dish was delish.... great BALLS and great SAUCE.... my partner had a Burger which was tasty and charred to perfection.... salad was unusual/spicy but good... had a local beer recommended by the very friendly and pleasant waitress... made our first night in Cincinnati one to remember.... Thanks ARNOLDS

From the outside you would never guess that this tiny building is not only a fantastic restaurant with unique and delicious foods, but also a class act bar with a huge selection of beer and great service. Sitting outside on the patio it feels like you are sitting in historic New Orleans.

We went to have dinner and listen to music on the patio. Patio was nice but it got very stuffy once it was full of people. A few fans would have made that area much easier to hang out in. The music was very entertaining and I would go see them again. ( Buffalo Wabs and the Price Hill Hustle was the band)
Food was average for the most part. My dinner was really good ( buffalo chicken breast and waffle) but my husband said his was horrible ( meatball hogie) and one of the other girls said her dinner was not very good.
Lots of different beers and coctails to try.
The building was very charming and the patio kind of had a New Orleans vibe going. It was also very easy to get to off the highway, just down from the new casino. Neighborhood felt safe. Parking right across the street for $5.

This place is one of the best I have been to in Cincy. Matching up live music (Jazz on the last night I was there) with great food, good service and good beer.....

Had an extremely nice evening with some colleagues, will definitely be back!

If you love history then Arnold's is for you. Great patio space out back with great music. Any review you read won't do this place justice, so go down and check it out for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
