McKenna's at Holiday Inn and Suites Eastgate

 1 star(s)  (10/28/2013)
“Had a conference here for a week at the hotel. One hour lunch on day 1 we had to wait for food 28 minutes after the order was put in. I ordered a Ruben with chips. Meat was missing on half the sandwich and the other half was burnt on the bottom. Chips were stale and cold. My co-worker's burger order... ”

 5 star(s)  (02/25/2013)
“Food poisioning usually sets in 24 hours after exposure, highly unlikely that the incident was created by the veterans day meal.”

Oleg's Tavern

 1 star(s)  (05/14/2012)
“Oleg is a nut case. continually fought with waitresses as well as customers. we received the wrong order three or four times and to our astonishment the owner proceeded to tell us that we did not know what we ordered. This was an unbelievable experience!”

The Dukester Sports Bar & Grill

 1 star(s)  (04/11/2012)
“Don't go to this bar, me and a friend of mine went to this bar and it's not really what it says it is on here. The food was terrible, the bouncer and the owner has strippers and gay strippers that did some very out there things. It made us uncomfortable I will tell other people not to go to this Bar... ”

The Dukester Sports Bar & Grill

 1 star(s)  (04/10/2012)
“Terrible! The location is dangerous, you have to ask someone if they cook food here? Sometimes the old man has strippers they don't smell fresh, the doorman or bouncer he kicks out people if they have too much to drink, why not call a cab or give the person a ride home?? I know some people that has ... ”

Taco Bell

 1 star(s)  (03/12/2012)
“The Devil would look great sitting next to this taco bell. Worst service ive ever experianced, orders always wrong, food never has enough meat or cheese, workers dont care and are offensive in every way. The place is in disrepair and has been for years, not to mention its a stinking filthhole.”

Dos Amigos

 5 star(s)  (02/06/2012)
“Good food!!! Best margaritas!!!”

Oasis Mediterranean Grill

 5 star(s)  (02/15/2011)
“Our family had dinner at the Oasis Mediterranean Grill for the first time tonight. Lots of delicious Russian food and kebabs. The portions were huge and the prices were small. My son had Manti - three huge manti for only $5.99. His side of garlicky fried potatoes was enough for all three of us as... ”

“My husband and I went for Veteran's Day to enjoy a complimentary meal but little did we know that we would end up with food poisoning later in the night. My poor husband wasn't able to enjoy and keep down his free meal. I guess that's how they say thank you to vets. The service was great, though.”

Oasis Mediterranean Grill

 5 star(s)  (08/11/2010)
“Food is totally "addicting", my family stops by every week now to taste "lagman", "kebabs" and "samsa". Outstanding place for meat lovers!!!”

Grand Buffet

 5 star(s)  (04/25/2010)
“OUTSTANDING! Every single item is delicious and the price is right: Six Dollars daily before 4PM and only Ten after 4. For all-you-can-eat, that is reasonable. Make sure to lay down a bed of rice and dump on some Peanut Chicken. My eyes roll....mmmmmm.”

McKenna's at Holiday Inn and Suites Eastgate

 5 star(s)  (02/27/2010)
“A unknown Eastgate secret, hidden inside the Holiday Inn & Suites! Fantastic food at reasonable prices (we have the Ribs...better than Mont.Inn). Relaxing environment and kid friendly. I will definately return.”

Frisch's Big Boy Restaurants - Delhi

 1 star(s)  (08/31/2009)
“Service was horrible at the Delhi location. My burger was cold and so were my fries.”

Olive Garden Italian Restaurant

 5 star(s)  (06/19/2009)
“Went there for brunch on Sunday. In one word-Great. Had very special, special dishes. Great eggs. Coffee soso. Should have ordered French pressed pot instaed of house coffee. Service was young, but tried hard. Would eat there again and again,”


 5 star(s)  (06/07/2009)
“This is the besy kept secret in Cincinnati! This place is tucked away in a neighborhood in Anderson Township (eastside of town)and is a very comfortable place to enjoy a meal with friends or family. You have to get their signature "half and half margarita's (half frozen and half up = no brain freeze... ”

Country Preacher Restaurant

 5 star(s)  (04/03/2009)
“Country Preacher is not for everyone. You walk into the living room of an old house and pick from a hand scrawled menu over the TV. This is carry-out only and open weekends only. Call ahead if you're in a hurry. But Country Preacher is hands down the best and most authentic soul food in Southern ... ”

Blue Water Grill

 1 star(s)  (03/22/2009)
“My husband and I ate here and it was a horrible experience. The waitress was not attentive. We showed her our online gift certificate and she recommended the special. Thirty five minutes later we received our mediocre food. Also, we received our salads after our entree and our table was dirty. The f... ”
