City View Tavern

I almost hate to do a review on this place because I feel like not a lot of people know about it and it is never crowded for lunch even on a beautiful day like today. But I figured since only about 2 or 3 people read my blog, it won't matter too much.

City View Tavern is one of the nicest places to go eat when it is beautiful outside. It is in Mount Adams and it has a back deck which over looks the city. The view is awesome, but the burger is even better.

We found this place out from an old resident of Mt. Adams and he got us to go because he promised an amazing burger. Well, he was right. They have, I think, one of the top 5 best burgers in Cincinnati. It is very simple, but very juicy and flavorful, it even has a little kick to it. When it gets placed down right in front of you, the smell that comes off the burger is almost as good as the first bite you take. With the burger comes with a bag of chips, I usually go with the BBQ Grippos, and then whatever drink you want all for around $8. They have a pretty good beer selection since they are really a bar more than a restaurant, but I have yet to have a beer there. The bartender is also the cook, the waiter and the host, he does it all. He makes sure the burgers are done right and he always asks how they were that day when he rings us up before we leave.

If you haven't been there before, you need to take a drive there one beautiful day for lunch. You won't regret it.

  1. It's been there forever. When I was a student at the Art Academy, still in Eden Park of course, City View was a frequent stop. They used to have a great juke box selection too.

  2. I have been there for night life with Mark and Curt, but I haven't made it for a meal! I'll have to try it out!


  3. I am sure it is a good time for the night life, but you'll definitely have to go back there for a burger. Maybe when some relatives are back in town, we can all go up there together for lunch
