I go here once a month with friends. We usually go on Monday night to take advantage of the half price hamburger offer. It's definitely bar grub and s little dark inside. However, the burgers are thick and juicy cooked just the way you ask with a variety of toppings. There is free popcorn while you wait and pretty good... More

We chose this Location based on a Battle of the Burgers by Cincy Vibe onlines web site, they had several testers go out and review several of the best Burger Places in Cincinnati, now I've tried many of the ones they did and don't agree with all of their reviews, like Gabby's Cafe, they rated it a bit lower in...

I stop in By Gollies every few months. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad. The wait staff is good. Bartenders vary. Great place for Keno.

Have you ever walked in someplace and had everyone turn around and look at you, ike you were interrupting them? Yeah, that's this place. We've been THREE times and each time it's the same thing. People save tables for their friends, so you are lucky to get one. And the kicker? The food isn't even above average. We like to... More

We live close by, so we know the area well. By Gollys is a always great place to eat, drink, or both. This is definitely "Then Local Hangout"

I've been to By Golly's a few times over the years but this past weekend was an absolute exception. A friend of Tom's (owner), Uncle Billy's, drove up from Louisiana with live crawfish, gumbo and jambalaya. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was incredible. Tom also hired a Blue's / Jazz band to play for the evening to give... More

Great burgers, the pizza is good and you must try the taco salad. We have been coming here for years but very recently the service and wait times have gotten even better. We love the atmosphere and we help ourselves to popcorn every time we stop in. If only the parking was better; the lot is always full!

Have frequented this place many times. They have the best burgers in the Cincy area ! And cheap too ! I recently tried a few other local places to compare burgers, but I always come back to ByGollys. Came for lunch this past Tuesday and they didn't disappoint !

Wide variety on the menu and a local favorite for locals but the service is consistently slow, from receiving food to checking the check. This evening the service was pretty slow and the restaurant isn't very busy at all.

We had a rare date night and wanted to go to an unfamiliar bar and grill. By 7 pm on a Saturday night this was a full blown bar with live music and karaoke. The food was delicious for a $9 hamburger. We waited for a table about 10 minutes without being acknowledged. It is seat yourself but the tables... More
