It’s About Time You Finally Visited Cincinnati’s Oldest Restaurant

With so many restaurants in Cincinnati, there are bound to be a few that you’ve heard of or driven past for years, but never ventured inside. We all have our favorite Queen City eateries, but it’s nice to branch out from time to time and to also try the restaurants that have been staples in the city’s dining scene for decades, or in this case, over a century! Mecklenburg Gardens is Cincinnati’s oldest restaurant and if you haven’t check it off your bucket list, you really should take the time to (finally) pay it a visit.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
