Stopped here with my family while visiting Cincinnati for a wedding. A little slow with service and the bartender screwed up a few drinks. Everything was made right by our waiter. Food was good and the margarita they made was excellent.

Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Staff was friendly and efficient. Their flavored ketchup was a little odd tasting and the music a bit too loud but other than that everything was great.
