This place is not one I will return to. The environment is like being in a fairly big noisy, cafeteria. For a nice night out this is not it. It is busy - neighborhood folks I think. Food is quick to be served. We did like the mock turtle soup. The cheeseburger was bland meat & cheese with the usual... More

Great burger with affordable prices. Burger fries and drink $7.50. Tried a mock turtle soup as well. Pitchers were $9 of domestics (including Hudy lager) and $2 a mug. Enjoyed the environment and there was plenty of parking. Will definitely go back.

Like many Cincinnatians, I have been going to Quatman's for years. Always get the cheeseburger and turtle soup because it is so good. After 50 years, they now have a menu with more items. (That will not change my order.) Always seem to be very friendly, quick service and food is served hot. It is nothing fancy but a very... More

This place never disappoints for a great burger. The Quatman has been around almost 55 years and the clientele hardly ever changes. From the elderly, to the young. From the businessman and woman to the retired person or student. You're all treated the same here in this no frills restaurant that cooks up one of the best burgers you'll ever... More

Along with many others, I have been eating at Quatman's my entire life. It is our "Cheers". No matter how far away we move we will always return. This place has always had simple but tasty, affordable bar food, cold beer and horrible parking. The fact that it is simple and has barely changed over the years is part of... More

I never knew this place was there! While our service was a bit slow (I'm told that is very unusual for this place) the meal more than made up for it. Incredibly cheap! Very limited menu, but something for everyone.

The cheeseburger was nothing fancy but tasted very good. It was a hot day so the Hudy in the frosted mug was great! Fries were average and the reuben sandwich was a bit dry. The tablecloth was a bit dirty from previous customers. Service was good.

I love Quatman's, I kind of miss the flavor of the "old" restaurant before the remodel, but the updating inside is very nice; additionally, they have outdoor dining and a parking lot - yay! Burgers come hot off the grill and arrive on paper plates. If you order fries, you will get a pile of the thin-cut variety. Go on... More

For lunch get there at 11:30 or wait until after the lunch rush - It is always crowded because it is always good. The place is a combination 1. Bar: A very old long bar is usually where i will park and have a beer and burger. It does not matter who is bar tending - they are friendly and... More
