Food mediocre at best. Really, really slow - server came by four times to apologize. DON'T order the Rueben - meat was greasy. Nice server however. Bathroom was a mess - soap container pulled off the wall and laying in sink.

Great place to grab a drink & watch sports. It has a lot of seating, the service is great, & it is in a great location. We didn't eat, but the food looked good & the menu had many options.

we went to the holy grail after the garth concert. It was crowded and loud, but fun. Service was good, food and drinks were good. It was a good place to go after an energetic concert

Great place to walk for lunch if you work in downtown Cincy . I ate healthy and enjoyed my salad but the pizzas and burgers around me looked delicious! Locally owned, this is a place to try.

This is a great place to hang out before or after a Reds game. I have also had the pleasure of seeing numerous sports figures hanging out here as well. Check it out, you won't be sorry you did.

Great sports bar, large roomy and right across the street from GABP on the Banks. Good pub style food, cold beer and great views of the stadium and surrounding city. Open patios in the summer to make the place even better.
