We visited Nicholson’s Tavern & Pub during our brief stay in Cincinnati. Overall we had a good experience. The restaurant itself is beautiful and has a nice feel. The food and drinks were good.
We had a great server but runners forgot our food and we waited for a bit. Overall good food and atmosphere
Great food and service as always!!
Yea wonderful waitress and great food
Great food. Server was excellent. Very nice experience.
Mixed drinks were inconsistent— food was good. Fun music.
Really enjoyed! Everyone was super friendly and they all worked nonstop to take care of their guests. Food and drinks were delicious.
Good pub food, a few clicks better than regular bar food. Good prices and friendly, competent service.
Nicholson's for lunch is a reliable and delicious choice. The food is always good and the servers are friendly and professional. As a downtown worker I am so glad Nicholson's is open for lunch when so many other restaurants are still not. I recommend the Tavern House Salad with salmon or crab cakes. I've been eating it for years!
Authentic Scotish tavern. Yes, I have been to the UK. Great beer and single malt selections. Limited menu right now, but still offering plenty of varity.
It was my wife’s birthday, enjoyed a great meal. She had the Buffalo Mac and Cheese, I had the Fish and Chips. Both meals were excellent, the icing on the cake was the Sticky Toffee Pudding. We will definitely be back again!
Excellent food and atmosphere!
The staff was wonderful.
Will definitely visit again!
Pot roast Mac and cheese is outstanding. Great setting, nice menu, good drinks, reasonable prices. What more could you want?!
Cool place! Great food, great beer, and excellent service! We ate dinner here prior to an FC Cincinnati game. It was a short 15 minute walk to the stadium. We will be back!
Smack dab in the middle of the action downtown. Outstanding Food, Service, Building and Atmosphere. The manager and all staff constantly on the move. Loved it all.
First time and what a wonderful experience ! Early birthday celebration followed by a great concert. Will definitely be back !
Good food good drinks
We had duck fat fries, the Scotch egg, bangers and mash, shepherd’s pie, and sticky toffee pudding. Everything was wonderful and authentic, if a bit modernized and elevated.
Good Service. Good Food. Friendly. We all left wondering why we don't go to Nicholson's more often.
You feel like you are in the British Isles. A great place to meet up with friends.
Fun way to end a day in Cincinnati. Yummy fish & Chips. We were so hot and thirsty from being out in the sun and doing a walking tour. The Server was so kind to us and immediately brought our drink orders so we could hydrate and kept our glasses full throughout our meal. Great service, great atmosphere.
Fantastic food and service. I will go back until I’ve tried everything on the menu and then keep coming back for my favorites!
In town for the day, picked this spot because of the high reviews. The food was about as expected, fish was decent but the Brussel sprouts were charred. Everything was okay except the waiter...seems like he despised his job and had no interest in serving us. Made it very uncomfortable and honestly probably the worst server I’ve ever had, really had a negative vibe the whole time. Would not go back, was not great for a date.
Nicholson's is a consistent go to restaurant with good food and service. I hope they bring back their pre-pandemic menu.
Although the building and interior decor were lovely, we feel Nicholson's has missed a great opportunity to create the true feel of a Scottish pub. Despite the panels of plaid fabric on the walls and the plaid skirts worn by the waitresses, we wished there had been more that evoked this sort of ambiance. For example, I would have enjoyed hearing some Scottish music playing, rather than 80's and 90's-era American rock music. The breading on the fish was tasty and crisp but the fish itself was bland. The french fries were fantastic and the staff were wonderful.
Great food, great service.
Quick in and out.
We enjoyed our experience at Nicholson’s. The food and drinks were excellent!
Wonderful food and attentive service
Great business meeting setting and everything was excellent.
Service was great!
Very happy with the food, although & understandable, limited offerings. I had grilled salmon on caesar, my friend had the more typical fried fish & French fries w malt vinegar, he said absolutely excellent. The music was turned on uncomfortably high, I had to yell just to be heard at my table but they did adjust that. When the AC went off it did get uncomfortable but did kick on soon. Our server FeFe, could not have been better, she was terrific. Knowledgeable & fun!
Our service was slow but she may have been new. She was very friendly and accurate with our order. The building was hot and no air flow. The food saved the day! The food was excellent. We will dine there again.
I love Nicholson’s every time I visit. Welcoming staff, cozy atmosphere, and delicious food make it a favorite!
Nicholson's has a new menu since we last had dinner there and we appreciate the changes. The food was delicious and was brought to our table piping hot. We enjoyed the service...lots of smiles and several good suggestions. Other diners seemed happy to be there so the atmosphere was positive. We are looking forward to returning soon.
Food and ambience were very good!
Music was a little loud as we were seated in a room next to the bar area.
Bartender made excellent cocktails. Our server was awesome. I had several questions on the drinks and between her and I believe the manager, all my questions were answered and recommendations were fantastic. Both my bf and I thoroughly enjoyed the food. Beer cheese was super good. This is def in my top 3 of places to eat in Cincy for the bar/pub atmosphere.
Service was a little lacking. We were stuck back in a corner and I think they forgot about us sometimes.
Great atmosphere. Looks like a UK pub but bigger. Good beer selection, superb single-malt Scotch selection. The French Fries (excuse me, the chips) are outstanding. Their fish & chips signature dish was too heavy for me. The fish was dense rather than flaky, and tasted pan-fried like a croquette brather than deep fried. Good, but not in the Scottish style. Generous portions.
We visit Nicholson’s for dinner a few times a month. The staff is always friendly and accommodating, the fish and chips is a must! Their event space is also wonderful. Highly recommend for any occasion.
We dine here every St Patty's Day! We yet to have a problem getting in. The food, drinks, and service is fabulous!
