Steakhouse

“There is the precinct, which is my favorite, as well as the Jeff Rubys steak house and Johnny and Carlos. All serve the most amazing steaks I have ever had. PRICEY! But better then any high end steaks. Try the colinsworth, a filet with crab and hollandaise sauce. ”

Food
“No food here, but good beer and very nearby. You walk past it on your way to Brew River. A good microbrewery, in a city full of good microbreweries. Cincinnati has a rich history of beer brewing which has been re-established in the past 5 years or so. If you go to Bad Tom’s be sure to ask about their name. ”
