    Mike Fink's: Dining on the River

    by Tom_Fields Written Feb 2, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mike Fink's

    Mike Fink's is not only a restaurant, but also a national historic landmark. It's aboard an old sternwheeler steamboat, formerly named the John W. Hubbard. This boat no longer operates, but the restaurant is great. Not cheap, since you pay a premium to dine on the river. But the great views of Cincinnati and the river traffic make up for it.

    Who was Mike Fink? He was a legendary figure of the early days on the frontier, born in Pittsburgh about 1770. Fink was famous for his brawls, his marksmanship, and his skill as a scout and boatman. He was said to have been killed in a gunfight somewhere in the Rocky Mountains, in about 1823.

    Favorite Dish: All the seafood dishes are fine.

    Absolutely, hands down, my favorite is Cracker Barrel. I love their home-cooking atmosphere, and reasonable prices.

    However, we also have PF Chang's which is located in Kenwood. It is wonderful if you enjoy Chinese food.

    If Italian is more to your liking, definitely check out Bucca Di Beppo's in Kenwood. It is 'family style' portions, so you'd better bring a couple friends to help you conquer them.

    Favorite Dish: From Craker Barrel, I love their turnip greens, corn, and pinto beans. It's simple, but I love it.

    At PF Chang's, I like their spicy Orange Chicken.

    At Bucca's, their spaghetti is scrumptous, their pizza unique, and their cheesecake is heavenly!!

    Riverfront Pizza & Sports Bar: Stop for a beer and a bite.

    Restaurant is a small place that happened to be located right across the street from the Holiday Inn. We went over and grabbed a sandwich and a couple of beers.

    The menu is limited, mainly subs, wings and pizza, but everything was good. There were many choices of beers - all of which were nice and cold on a hot day. Our waitress / bartender was very friendly and was kind enough to even laugh at our corny jokes.

    For a quick bite before or after a game, this was a good place to stop.

    Anchor Grill: Land mark restaurant.

    by rustybug Written Apr 9, 2006

    A visit to Covington is not complete without a visit to The Anchor Grill. The restaurant is located on the corner of Pike St. and Main. You will not find another restaurant like it. There is an over abundance of nautical decorations. In the main dining area there is a band, which is an animated band that comes to life when music plays on the jukebox. Don't worry about what time to go because they "may doze, but never close.

    Favorite Dish: Anchor Grill has the best biscuits and gravy. Their Goetta is also a must.

    Otto's: Fresh and Fabulous

    by Xamayka Written May 29, 2010

    We stopped at Otto's, arriving barely a half hour before they closed after lunch. Our server was friendly and, although we stayed well into their "dinner prep" time, did not try to hurry us. I ordered the TURKEY CRANBERRY ($8), an incredibly delicious sandwich of oven roasted turkey, smoked gouda, and cranberry sauce on a warm baguette. It came with a side of either a mixed greens salad (my choice) or homemade chips. My companion requested a half-order of the BRIE-BERRY SALAD ($5) of organic mixed greens topped with chopped brie, strawberries, grapes, crumbled bleu cheese, and candied pecans. We split an order of SWEET POTATO FRIES ($6) which are served with a honey-dijon dipping sauce ... enough to generously serve 3 or 4. Do NOT pass these by, they're incredible.

    Jack Quinn's Irish Ale House...

    by John195123 Written Oct 4, 2002

    Jack Quinn's Irish Ale House and Pub. The food and atmosphere here aren't as good as they are in Colorado Springs, but it is still very worth a visit. The food is very good, and of course, there's Guinness on tap. The service is very friendly, and Jack Quinn's I highly recommend!
