Cincinnati is known as a Midwestern city, but most would agree that when you cross the river into Kentucky, you’ve entered Southern territory. Bourbon is the drink of choice, college basketball is a way of life, and you’ll find evidence of Southern roots throughout the Northern Kentucky region. The cities that are situated along the river are often thought of as the Southern neighborhoods of Cincinnati, and thankfully, it’s easy to access them and each one is filled with wonderful features.

One of its newest – and arguably best – features is a Southern-style restaurant that recently opened in Covington. Libby’s Southern Comfort is as charming as its name suggests, and the food and atmosphere are definitely worth a trip to the “South.”

Libby’s Southern Comfort is a delightful addition to the rapidly developing city of Covington and surely tops the list as one of the best new restaurants in the Cincinnati area. Have you dined on Southern cuisine at this charming eatery? Is it on your list to try? Let us know in the comments!
