It USED to be Good – City View used to be a great place--best jukebox in the city. However, it's only a great jukebox if you let the music play--the new practice of cutting off songs they decide they don't like diminishes the place (note these are songs that are in the jukebox). I've been a longtime patron and fan, and I am never going back. The burgers aren't that good. I can't wait to see what takes the place of City View.
Hidden gem with GREAT burgers – City View is probably my favorite bar in Cincinnati. It's a small, dive bar with not much for trendy ambience (actually, I really dig it's divey no-frills atmosphere) and only 2 beers on tap, but it has one of the best views in the city (dowtown and the river), and easily some of the best burgers, too. If you want a comparison, City View has better burgers than Zip's in Mt. Lookout, which has the worst service I've ever experienced. There's also a pool table and old-school juke box with an impressive collection of classics. My only complaints: no fryer, so no fries or onion rings, but the burgers are good enough reason alone to come here. Also, outdoor seating is limited, so if you want to sit outside, try to come during non-peak hours.
