Hathaway's is a blast from the past! Old-school diner environment, great prices, and a friendly atmosphere. It's not fine dining or an organic/vegan paradise, but if you're in the mood for comfort food at good pricing, this is great!

Horrible. Unacceptable behavior by the manager and wait staff. The manager, Sean, refused to take off or even give a discount for food that was not only late, but when it did come, it was incorrect. He then proceeded to yell and SWEAR at us when we suggested that we should be comped for having to wait for incorrect food.... More

Hathaway's is open for breakfast and lunch. It is 50's style classic with music to go along. We breakfast at Hathaway's when we stay at the Hilton Netherland Plaza. The eggs are great. We see many people ordering sausage and gravy.

Open from 7 am to 3 pm, this is an ideal place to come for breakfast or lunch. Many of the baked goods (biscuits, muffins, coconut cake) are made from scratch and are the right size and have the proper balance of sweet and salty. Eggs are prepared with care ("over easy" is just that: delicate but hot). They serve... More

I previously reviewed this after an unfavorable experience where I got there 30 minutes before closing, and they were only doing carryout. Since I was from out of town, I actually had my meal in a parking lot. My last two visits, though, I noticed they stayed open later with full service and the food was much better. Glad it... More

Visit Cincinnati yearly to attend the Cincinnati Golf Show and stay at the Hilton Netherlands Hotel, but for breakfasts on the Skywalk level is Hathaways Diner and the best breakfasts around at reasonable prices and their Coconut Cake is out of this world..They are only open for breakfast and lunches and worth a visit!

We were in Cincinnati for a concert in December and stayed at the Westin. In the morning before we left we were looking for someplace inside for breakfast since it was cold outside. We walked over to Carew Tower and were wandering around when a woman asked f he could help us find something. When we told her we were... More

We had breakfast here at the recommendation of a man from our hotel. I'm thinking now, he must be related to someone that owns this place... it cost us $50 for breakfast and it really wasn't anything special. Bacon eggs pancakes... not worth the money for sure and the service wasn't great either.

I ate here for breakfast one morning while staying at the Hilton. This place is convenient for hotel guests, as they can get here by taking the elevator to street level and not have to even go outside. Service here was fast and the employees were friendly. The 50's diner serves a typical breakfast menu. I ordered a Western Omelette... More

If you're staying in the Fountain Square area on business, you don't have to spend $40 for a plate of eggs mixed with chewy green things adorned with some faux-French name. There is actually a place where you can get plain old French Toast, omelets with options, and nice strong American coffee. That place is Hathaway's located on the Street... More
