Good restaurants in Cincinnati?

Going to Cincinnati soon for a concert. Any recommendations on good places to eat that are decently priced?

Re: Good restaurants in Cincinnati?

I can give you several recommendations, but it would be helpful to know which concert venue you will be attending (so I know in roughly what part of town you will be), how much time you will have to eat beforehand, etc. Also, what constitutes "decently priced"?

This is otter. So it's either anything under $2000 (exc. wine) or $20 for a family of four (inc. parking and tips).

If you are close, Montgomery Inn Ribs by the river (the boathouse) is good.

Montgomery Inn would not be one of my recommendations, primarily because I like some effort put into barbecue. Smoking and slow cooking requires effort. Boiling (!) ribs and slathering them in sauce does not, and with that in mind, it isn't "decently priced", either. If I'm going to be dropping around $20 on an entree in the downtown area, Nada is often my first choice, but I'm going to assume you are looking for something cheaper than that.

The concert is at PNC Pavilion, but we are going early in the day and thus can go anywhere in town, really.

Re: Good restaurants in Cincinnati?

I grew up in Cincy, my favorite restaurants:

- Skyline Chili for "fast food" ($10/person)
- Montgomery Inn for great ribs and saratoga chips ($30-50/person)
- The Precinct ($50-60/person)

Re: Good restaurants in Cincinnati?

Riverbend isn't too far from Terry's Turf Club, which has amazing, huge burgers and a pretty good beer selection. It isn't much to look at inside or out, and I would recommend getting there a bit early, but the food is completely worth it.

Nada, which I mentioned earlier, is currently my favorite place downtown. There is some decent stuff across the river in Newport, including Newport Pizza Company (which also has a good beer selection), and Hofbrahaus might be worth a visit if only for the experience. (I don't particularly care for their food, but it's fun to grab a liter of beer when there's a band and a good crowd going.)

I agree with you about Skyline, but I didn't grow up with it, so I don't have any sort of affinity for it, LaRosa's, Big Boy, and the like. Graeter's (ice cream) is probably my favorite of the "local" chains, and it's worth stopping for a snack/dessert if you happen to find yourself near one. (There is one on Fountain Square downtown, if you end up killing time down there.)
