Recently my wife and I stopped by to this place since it's right by our house for some drinks and snacks right after work on Friday to start our weekend; which we do almost every week.
As soon as we walked in everyone was staring at us with confused look and we got the unwelcoming and negative vibe. Although, we ignored the stare by everyone and waited to be greeted by the employee and give us a table. We waited for 5-7 minutes for someone to greet us which never happened.
We ended up leaving that place without ever getting greeted by anyone.
This place is only for locals and who has been going there.
If you are not a regular or known; you are unwelcome to that place.

If you want to hang out with the locals, stop in here for lunch or dinner, or just to grab a drink. The food is a great value, with a lot of typical "bar food" choices that are at "restaurant quality" such as burgers, BBQ, chili, wings, meatloaf, etc. Note that they started taking credit cards in 2016, so ignore any 'cash only' comments in other reviews.

Little place left back in time but the garlic burger will knock your socks off. Amazing burger with fresh garlic fries in butter makes this the best burger ever. Fun menu, good food and good service. Small parking lot. Got to try it! Enjoy!

It was a popular place with a well deserved reputation when I went to the Friendly Stop in the 60's and 70's after playing baseball in the Cincy Muni leagues for Tatman Taxi and Allied Appraisal. Food was always good, reasonably priced and the beverages were cold. Glad to know some things never change. My mom and step dad became regular customers. Have seen or known that many of my best friends and their parents return to this spot, the Cheers of Northern Cincy.

Went for lunch on a crowded Saturday afternoon. Got an excellent burger and onion rings. Server was good even with the crowd. All the license plates on the wall made for interesting setting and conversation starters. Price was right too.
