“Rudest service we have ever experienced”

Unless you are a group full of guys be prepared to sit and wait...the waitresses and hostesses are extremely rude. Manners must not have been taught with this group waited for 25 minutes to get service. It started from when we walked in the door at the hostess just rolled her eyes at us. The waitress, Olivia, was no better we sat here for 25 minutes and waited as she greeted three tables around us with groups of guys and then when she finally came to deliver our drinks one time she never came back... she left without even letting us know but, let all the tables around her know she was leaving and cashed out with them as they were all guys...this was after 1.5 hours of being here she came to our table once and never came back and then, left. It was not crowded. Would not recommend.

There were several options near where we were staying on the same block, but we wanted to experience something we could only get in Cincinnati. We ordered a pepperoni pizza, and we enjoyed it immensely. The flavor was yummy, especially the garlic cheese. We came here on a Thursday with no sporting events in the area, but we can totally envision how awesome an experience it would be if you came here before or after a Reds or Bengals home game. Service was great. Perfect location. Beer was cold. NFL football was on the TV’s. Overall, a very good experience.

The food was decent, and the prices were comparable to places such as Applebee's, O'Charley's and the like. It is definitely a sports bar atmosphere, and even though there were no games or events at the adjacent Great American Ballpark, or the close by Paul Brown Stadium, or US Bank Arena, the place was probably at least 80% full at around 2:00pm. The service we received was so-so. We had to call our server's attention to the fact that we needed drink refills on more than one occasion, including one time when she was seemingly walking right past our table without even checking on us (despite the fact that she hadn't checked on us for a while). My wife said that our server was standing around looking at her phone for about 5 minutes while my wife was waiting for a refill on her water. I didn't see this personally, because my back was facing where our server was standing, but I believe my wife! ;-)

Overall, this was an OK experience. I suppose that if a person likes crowds and is more interested in the social aspects of going here that he or she is in getting something to eat, this might be more enjoyable than it was for us.

We were there about 2 hours before game time, so it was busy but the staff really moves. Food was great, atmosphere excellent. Right across the street from GABP.
