Nicholson's Tavern & Pub
Outstanding cutI had the filet mignon and it was the best steak I have had in I don't know when. BUT, the duck fat fries are to die for. They are superb. No need to stick them in the aioli. They are fabulous just as they are. The food was seasoned through so there was no need to salt anything. It was outstanding.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat pub in downtown CincinnatiWe were traveling through the area to visit family in Ohio, and decided to try out Nicholson's. It was a holiday weekend and there was a major event going on nearby, so I suspect it was much more quiet than usual. We enjoyed our lunch - they have lots of great beers on tap. We sat in a nice booth inside - lots of real wood and brass. A classic decor with great ambiance. We will definitely keep it on our list for future visits.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPure EnjoymentThe two of came for food prior to going to the play across the street. Service was great. Food was totally delicious and filling. It was served hot, my iced tea was refilled when it was at the half way level. The duck fat Fries were superb. Lobster-crab-maac-cheese was scrumptious. Ambiance was appealing.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMServiceWe've eaten there many times before and had awesome service.

,4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food, Odd Menu ChangesI cannot help but wonder at the changes to the menu. For a Scottish/British Isles-style pub, the food seems to be very Americanized and chain-like. Not to mention that it comes to you on a sheet of paper looking like a cheap diner placemat while the rest of the tableware and the restaurant itself is all oakwood and leather. Very odd choice for an upgrade.
That said, you cannot ignore the food, which is consistently good, no matter the menu. My hope is Nicholson's will come back to itself soon.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good. Friendly and knowledgablVery good. Friendly and knowledgable wait staff. Unusual to have a waiter know single malts as well as ours did. The food was good. Nice change offering two sizes of fish and chips. Off to run a 10K to work off the duck fat fries.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
