Restaurant Review: Tin Roof at the Banks – Cincinnati, OH

Recently I was meeting up with a colleague downtown and the Banks was the best place to meet that I could drive to but have a chance of finding a parking spot!

After looking at the Urbanspoon ratings for a few places – I quickly decided on Tin Roof with a 92% thumbs up! (The competition – um ouch)

Tin Roof is a music joint and has bands every weekend. We were there at noon on a Friday though – so none of those shenanigans. 🙂


It reminded me a lot of the now defunct Margaritaville on the inside – very festive and a party atmosphere.


My colleague got the Italian sandwich ($8.95) which is served with fries. He enjoyed the sandwich and was pretty psyched to be part of a blog post! It didn’t look too crazy authentic but he liked it.


I decided on the Shroom Quesdilla ($9.95) which had grilled mushrooms, grilled chicken, guacamole and jack cheese. The salsa that came with it was a roasted tomato and had a nice dark flavor. This was all my favorites in one dilla – so you can’t really go wrong with that.

Why Should You Go? Well I don’t know that it has a lot of competition in the “casual dining” realm there – but it was good! Solid food and friendly service. While it wasn’t anything “wow” – it was a basic lunch and we both enjoyed it. The prices are affordable for the Banks as well – so we were happy!
