Once you find Street parking you walk into a bar on your left and dining tables throughout.... Very odd set up... Bathrooms are weird and kinda creepy... 4 drinks and 2 shots... $60... Not my go to bar but interesting experience

This was a great place for Sunday brunch!! Lots of options, accommodating staff, good food, and great drinks!! Be prepared to travel with your order. No frills for sure but a very warm place! You order at the bar then take your ticket to the kitchen window. You then receive a number and go find a place to sit. I... More

The Comet has become a regular Sunday brunch destination for us. It's almost impossible to get anything from the menu that isn't really terrific, or at worst, simply interesting. Everything is so well prepared and the portions are gigantic. The value and quality are both terrific. We eat out all over town and always come back to the Comet. The... More

The Comet is a very relaxing neighborhood bar. I only go in there to get my fix for their jerk tofu burritos. Their burritos are HUGE; enough for 2 people. Their burritos taste better than Chipotle's burritos. They also give you a lot of nacho chips with the burritos, which I can never finish eating. Next time I'm going to... More

The Comet is one of our regular bars. We don't go out often, but we have a list of about six of so places that scratch that itch when we feel like downing a few beers and scarfing down delicious bar fare. Plus, they have Guinness on tap, an eclectic selection on the jukebox, and good bands from time to... More

My daughter is buying a house in the Northside neighborhood in Cincinnati so we decided to check out the local cuisine. The Comet Bar on Hamilton has delicious burritos and a drinks of all varieties - quite nice. We had a salsa sampler that was great and followed it with a chicken burrito which was delicious. On Sunday nights they... More

One might call it a "dive bar" but in fact it's quite the quirky little hole-in-the-wall gathering place for locals and visitors. We enjoyed their Sunday brunch but they offer great music (including the well-known Comet Bluegrass All Stars on Sunday nights) and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. If you're looking for upscale fine dining this isn't it, but if you're... More

Quaint bar/ restaurant with funky atmosphere. The tacos were delicious, and so were the chips and salsa. Great beer selection. The blue grass band that plays every Sunday night is entertaining and a perfect addition to anyone's Sunday night. Get there early to get a good seat or any seat. It was a packed house the night we went.

My husband and I often stop for dinner and the great bluegrass music by the Comet AllStars. Fun local evening out. Fun group and friendly crowd. We have met people from various countries and from all over the U.S. Amazing guest performers occasionally join in to round out the evening. Highly recommend stopping by for dinner or drinks on Sunday... More
