I expected a packed house per the reviews and it was fairly empty. Decor was fun. Weepy lesbian couple in the hallway to the menís room was unexpected. Food was delicious. Per my wife service was too quick. Had all the beers I expected.
A nice, up-scale bar/restaurant in Hyde Park Cincinnati. I stopped by on a late Sunday afternoon and the place was fairly empty. It is a wide open space with plenty of tables and backrooms as well as a nice, long straight bar with flat-screen TVs. Very clean. The draught menu is quite extensive, perhaps 25-30 beers, although some of them are macros. A good, diverse selection that is bound to have something interesting (I got a BBC Saison and Bells Java Stout). They do have a house beer as well (the pale ale was on when I was there, I just got a sample of it and did not care for it). The food menu is on the pricy side, though not exorbitant (sandwich-type items for ~$15, entrees more pricy like $30) and the food is good, not your standard pub fare (I got the Baton Rouge Wrap which was very tasty). Anyway, overall I quite enjoyed the place and certainly would like to return for both the beer and food. Worth stopping by for sure!
Good beer menu. The staff is lacking on their knowledge of the menu though and suggests whatever the hot seller is (I went when Brew Masters was airing, so DFH was being pushed). With that said, if you know what you are doing, it is a great place, but a little on the pricey side.
Came in here around 10pm Friday evening, and primarily a 20ís 30ís crowd. Four TV screens, nice upscale decor. Food was good, but not exceptional for the price. $33 for an 8-oz. filet was steep, but a good $22 blackened grouper was a decent value. Servers were knowledgeable, and manager personally delivered my glass of North Coast Brother Thelonius. Drafts include some good stuff - Goose Island Bourbon Imperial Brown, St. Bernardus Abt 12, Bellís Best Brown, but total list of 30 taps and 50 bottles is signficantly populated by mass-market offerings. Overall, this is a decent place for a nice dinner with good beer.
One of the better stops you can make in Cincinnati if you are looking for craft beer on tap. The selection is generally very good for draft and bottles, but they are a bit pricey. The food is also very good but also on the more expensive side. It can be crowded and loud at times, but solid overall. Parking can also be an issue. Over the years the service has been friendly.
