“Unique touch of Europe in the Midwest”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

Great spot very unique outdoor patio seating that takes you to another time and place. If you enjoy urban settings with longevity make time to go and show patronage to such a special local tavern.

“Come for the tour, stay for the beer”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 via mobile

We came with friends to take the Bootleggers, Brothels and Booze walking tour and then stuck around for a late lunch and drinks. It so happened that they were having a beer tasting with Rhinegeist brews available, and they were hoppy and tasty. We had some salads and appetizers as well, which were great. Excellent atmosphere in the beer garden. Take the time to roam the second floor before you leave, you won't be disappointed.

“Amazing Atmosphere!”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

We went for dinner on a Friday evening and had an absolutely wonderful experience. We sat in the courtyard which was very nice and lit up, we also were lucky enough that a live band was just starting when we arrived so that was a very pleasant twist. Our server was extremely kind and helpful, the Sangria was delicious, and the food tasty as well. The menu spanned every category I would highly recommend stopping in this famous establishment.

“Oldest bar in Cincinnati”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

My husband who owns two bars had to visit this place . We were first there early afternoon and the owner Rhonda could tell we were tourists as we were taking pictures. She offered to take one of the two of us. She was most friendly and even recommended a hotel close by which we ended up booking. We went in later that evening for their $5 Burger Special which was very good. A few days later we stopped by and the same bartender who had been very friendly the first day was not so much that day. It was fun reading all the articles, looking st old pictures as this establishment does have quite the history.

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

Wonderful food and unlike many restaurants the helpings don't overwhelm you. The chicken ricotta (I think that's what I had) was superb, love the capers in the sauce and the cobbler afterwards was spot on. Service was quick and courteous.
