Have wanted to stop here for awhile, but it was always so crowded we passed. This time we found it relatively uncrowded and were glad we finally got to try it. Everything was delicious!! Some of the items sound strange, but are excellent.

Stopped by the Tom + Chee location at Newport on the Levee. There are a couple of other locations in the tri-state area, but this one is the total package. For one thing, the setting is awesome, with the view of the river and the Cincinnati skyline. We came in December this last time, and it is a special treat... More

Back in the states for our biannual trip to visit family, this place is always on our list of must dos. We went on a weekday lunchtime and it was heaving. There was a long queue but the wait wasn't too bad. The kids meals were really good value ($3.95 for half a grilled cheese, soup or a side, drink... More

Two of my favorite combinations & I couldn't believe there was an eatery devoted solely to this meal. You have choices of type of bread, cheese or soup...but all classic & yummy. Had a most enjoyable lunch here. No frills counter service comfort food.

I love grilled cheese. I am all about it. I was excited to try this place right by the Aquarium, and it did not disappoint. It is a fun atmosphere with delicious options. I had an original sandwich on the menu and it was so melty and perfect. Great place for family, including picky eaters like me... :)

Not what I expected, which was a typically noisy quasi-fast food spot. Their menu has a number of daily specials and is individualized to the area. I especially liked the soup menu.

I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant. I wish we had them in Chicago! The S'more grilled cheese is to die for. This is a must place to eat!

All and all, who doesn't like grilled cheese sandwiches with soup? We stopped by before we took a walk over the Purple People Bridge. The restaurant was clean and empty...granted it was a Monday evening. I ordered the build your own with the chunky tomato basil and my daughter ordered the one with the sliced tomato and a cup of...

You can't go wrong with splitting a glazed donut and using it as bread for a grilled cheese.... Great food for a decent price. Add the gold sprinkles on the classic to help support the children's hospital.
