I was visiting my daughter in Kentucky & wanted to take her to lunch. I did an online search for diner's in the area. Out of the 50 it brought up I chose Rima D's. Very glad I did. Awesome décor, great food, great prices & a great waiter. Great 1st time experience. I will definitely go there again next... More

Have eaten there multiple times, never a midlevel meal, always excellent. Good service The cakes and pies are quite tasty, but hardly had room after a good meal. Would definitely recommend for a family dining place.

Food was good but we were really disappointed in the service. We asked if the breakfast buffet was being served and were told no and handed lunch menus. So we ordered and then noticed people around us getting breakfast! Apparently we didn't ask the right question.

My husband and I were in Covington, Kentucky for a wedding and stayed at the Riverside Marriott. We asked Sunday morning about any breakfast places at the front desk- they suggested First Watch which was walking distance from the hotel. I knew himself wouldn't like it because he wanted a "real breakfast". We were driving around and found this diner... More

My oldest son loves this restaurant. This is our second time to this place. We ordered some special foods. These include meatloaf and different sandwiches. The restaurant has lots of decor and is very clean. The waitresses are very friendly. The food was very tasty. We may come back here again someday.

Service, food, prices are all very good. Wonderful classic hamburgers, best bean soup in town, wonderful chicken fried chicken with mashed potatos and white gravy. Unforgettable home made deserts. And you may meet Rima!

We are sorry that Rima's has closed. Always like the chicken & pasta and homemade desserts. Wish her well in her other ventures.

Now located at 635 Madison Ave., at 7th St., in Covington, KY (859) 261-7800 We ate here for the first time, for lunch on a Monday. The restaurant was bigger than I expected, and seemed very clean and had lots of natural light coming in the windows. We loved the 50's decor: photos of Elvis, Marilyn, Robert Redford, etc., art...

We stopped into Rimas new Covington location on a Saturday afternoon. We were seated quickly in a cozy booth. The decor is inviting and the restaurant is clean. My boyfriend ordered the steak, with green beans and side salad. His steak came out cooked perfectly and was very tasty. We love green beans and these were also delicious. I am... More
