Someone told my husband about this restaurant so we decided to try it. I ordered the fish log with coleslaw and mashed potatoes and it was very good. I enjoyed the fact we were able to sit near a window that overlooked the lake. It was a bit too warm in the area we were sitting at, but the did... More

If you like good old school food this is the place. The fish log (deep fried Cod loin) is the best. Also love the hot slaw, chicken livers and mock turtle soup. The atmosphere is rustic but nice. The service is outstanding. Nothing fancy just good food and good service.

If you enjoy fish, Lake Nina is the place to go. Been around a long time. Enjoyable seating in the back overlooking the lake. Bar area is a little noisy. Majority of customers know each other and the help which tells you something.

Eat year a couple of time a year. Love the mock turtle soup. The fish log is outstanding, after about 25 years of eating here I'd say the quality has remained the same. If you like chicken livers this is one of the best spots in Cincy to get them. They added a back dining room a couple of years... More

Made reservations for 14 five days in advance. The day of our gathering, we all arrived to find out that just because your make a reservation doesn't mean that they will honor it (per the owner). The owner, server and a guy behind the bar were the RUDIST people that I have EVER come in contact with. We were told,... More

The fish log is excellent. Flaky tender white fish, fried but no grease at all. Have the hot slaw and home friesfruesfries. A great neighborhood find!

I have been here several times. The service is hit or miss. The last time we went the hostess told us to sit anywhere. We decided to sit outside on the small deck. We waited for 5 minutes with no server. I told the hostess and she said, "I can't do anything about it until I clean this table off."... More

A local bar and restaurant in Colerain Township featuring fish but with lots of other choices as well. We went for dinner on a Friday at 7 PM and noticed most of the other patrons were an older crowd. The restaurant was pretty full but not crowded. It looks like a bar out of the 60's. The main dining room... More

Hadn't heard of this restaurant until they offered a restaurant website coupon offer. The fish log intrigued me. I had to find out if I was missing out on good fish. I have been. The cod fish log is great. The half size is plenty for most people, unless you are really hungry. Their fried pickles are out of this... More
