My husband used to go to Floyd's when he lived in U.C.'s Sander Hall (the dorm that was explosively imploded.) There was an older man and his wife running the place in the 70's (whose present owners -- also an older man and his wife -- said were his aunt and uncle.) We stopped by today (10-6) at 10:50 am...

Floyd's restaurant is exquisite. Family owned in the heart of the Clifton, University of Cincinnati Area. Their roasted chicken and Lebanese cuisine is among the best I have ever had. The waitstaff are also very helpful and kind.

So it kind of meets a "hole in the wall" type of restaurant, but I really liked it. The owner was our waitress. She was very friendly and helpful in selecting menu items. Of course as everyone says, the chicken was really good. They tend to run out, so get your order in earlier in the day if you're set... More

We have been enjoying what Floyd's cooks up for years. Without a doubt it is the best chicken ever. Their menu has always been organic, free range and farm to table or as close to it as seasonably possible. Way before it was in vogue Rein and her family have been preparing meals with nutrition and flavor as the priority.... More

Located near the University of Cincinnati Floyd's has grown from being a near dive into a cute neighborhood establishment with a huge, eclectic clientele. You'll see everyone from City Councilmen to students to P&G execs from Europe dining here. Smallish menu, very informal service, family run with a family feel to it. if you eat there more than once you'll... More

Floyds not only has the healthiest food served ever, but also it is far better tasting than so many I have ever tried! I practically live there we go around 4 times a week. The owners are simply wonderful and the main/only chef is the co-owner. A fabulous chef and with a charisma! Waiters come and go so I really... More

Went there for lunch and was expecting great things due to all the good reviews. Was I wrong! The employees were rude and short with us and we got the SMALLEST amount of food I have ever seen! The chicken lunch for $7.00 came with a drumstick and about a quarter of a thigh, not to mention it was all... More

This hole-in-wall restaurant (can it seat more than 16 people?) features the best Middle-Eastern food in Cincy. Savory, lemony, tender rotissorie chicken that is so mind-blowing you will never be able to enter a Boston Market again in good conscience. The side dishes are equally great - garlicy smokey Baba Ghanough, lovely green beans...lima beans (!) that will rock your... More
