Stopped by for a drink after dinner. The outdoor seating area is very nice. I liked sitting and having a few drinks and talking. Neat place, I recommend stopping for at least one drink! Try the Kentucky Ale.

A truly unique experience--every time, in every season. It's a tiny hole-in-the-wall, through a narrow passage just outside the Mt Adams Bar & Grille, down a few steps into a simple basement without a roof. But it's simple eclectic decorations interacting well-tended garden spaces give...More

After dinner with some friends for a birthday, we went to the Blind Lemon for a nightcap. Great live music, friendly wait staff, and reasonably priced drinks. In warm weather there is also an outside patio.

Hands down my favorite bar in Cincy--of course it has some history and some personal history for me. I always have a drink here when I visit. It's tiny inside but heavy on groovy and the outdoor courtyard is fab in cooler weather (probably warm...More

Historic bar with outdoor seating and entertainment. Friendly wait staff and good selection if spirits make this spot a must when in Mt. Adams. Outdoor seating is a must. Do miss the fire pit, but a propane heater is available for chilly nights.

I have never seen a pet (dog) there, so would presume it isn't. The place can get crowded so I feel you would be best to leave your beloved fur baby at home.
