Have to say I was apprehensive,heard some good and bad about this place. Tried it out and found out the food was great. They offer numerous and varied menu items to satisfy any appetite. I ate the best Philly Cheese Steak, this side of Philly. It had lots of great steak sliced thin and lightly seasoned with peppers and sautéed onion with gobs of mozzarella cheese. The food is all homemade from what I understand. It has been a landmark of the area for many years as one of the best places for breakfast. They offer wonderful breakfast fare. Many of the marina, race track employees and boaters come in regularly. The atmosphere was in a little tailspin. Recently,Lebo's was under new ownership, being remodeled with numerous other things going on. They are the only bar in town that I know of that offers patrons the opportunity to play Guitar Hero 3,sing Karaoke, play pool. or sit on a nice quiet deck to smoke and chat with friends. They start karaoke at 8 PM on Tuesday,Thursday and Sunday until 1 AM. On Sunday they offer Guitar Hero 3 as well as karaoke; and the D.J.," Wicked Vicky" was so nice and allowed my sons,11 and 13 years old, to play. My boys now insist that we go to Lebo's every Sunday night for dinner. I COULDN'T believe how good the food was and reasonably priced. Yes, they do need to invest in some newer equipment and fix some eye sore problems,but I sensed there were numerous changes underway with this change in ownership. I, for one, was impressed enough to go back again and believe we will continue to do so in the future. I would recommend going and giving it a try to see for yourself, at least once. We really liked the D.J., "Wicked Vicky", she was so open to whatever we wanted as a group. She played the type of music we requested in between people singing. She obviously enjoys doing her job and gets into the "party mode" fast. She works really well with the equipment to make the singers sound pretty impressive. Sometimes, she will sing with customers who are nervous or need a partner for a duet, and she is a really good singer as well. The other nights of karaoke are Friday and Saturday, starting at 9 PM until 2 AM. I believe the service, cost,quality of food, and entertainment were well worth what we received in return for our money. I can say I would recommend that you should give the place a try.As a bonus, a lot of well known sports figures hang out there as well. We got a couple of Reds player's autographs this last Saturday night. Sunday night is pretty quiet and easy going. The weekends are a bit more busy and chaotic. Karaoke goes on all night with dance music in between. Some of the singers are so good, it's amazing and then you have new ones with a little stage fright. That's when we have seen the D.J. do such a nice job helping out new singers. Sometimes without them even noticing, she backs them up on a cordless mike,trying to make them sound as good as possible. I haven't seen a lot of that, at other karaoke bars. I give the place a 31/2 to 4 star on environment,but as I have said there is a lot of remodeling and cleaning going on currently, service a 4 or better and entertainment,(especially on Sunday) 5. The food, more than anything deserves a 5. I hope , if you decide to visit this place, your experience is as positive as that of my family, friends, and myself. Bon Appetite.
Rhino's Live is great fun; you want to dress to impress and get there early. The Club starts to fill up fast, after 9 PM. The crowd seems to be a more respectful and mature crowd (25 and older). There are multiple Bars (up stairs and down); beautiful dance floor with tables around the circumference of the Dance floor, two Pool Tables, a very nice Patio and kitchen area. There is fun for all. My worst experience at Rhinos is when I got onto the dance floor with my shoes off to do the “Wobble Wobble Line Dance”; newbie’s kept stepping on my feet, when we had to “Back it up”, “Back it up”, “Back it up”! Additionally, management does many positive things in the community. I have been to Rhino’s for fundraisers (local school), Art Shows, Poetry Reading, and comedy night. They have the right formula (fun and community friendliness). I have never had a bad night at Rhino’s Live. For a great night out, I highly recommend Rhino’s.
Sonny’s have two locations, one for Blues and one for Jazz (both are non-smoking). Sonny’s all Blues Café is located off Reading Rd, in Cincinnati, OH. This location offers lots of fun. It has a Dance Floor, Pool Table, Bar, Flat Screen TV’s and many different activities throughout the week. You must stop by Sunday Evening 9 PM - 12 AM for gritty Blues. If you play an instrument, they welcome you to come up and play with the Ban (for a song or two). Sometimes, comedians (if they are in the crowd) get up and tell jokes during intermission. The entrance fee is FREE; quality of the music is GREAT. I stop by nightly to play a game of Pool, watch a basketball/football game and/or have the occasional drink. Drinks are good; drink prices are average $4 - $5.75. For good fun, in a smoke free environment – I highly recommend Sonny’s all Blues Café, off Reading Road.
