Wanted to find a local cafe for a weekend breakfast that didn't require us to eat from a buffet. This historic venue is quaint and somewhat dated but the food was good, the service was great and the quantity of food for the money was great. Very good choice downtown if you are there. Laid back and friendly with good... More

If you are standing in the Hilton Netherlands Hotel in downtown Cincinnati this place is directly below you. Kind of like an old diner theme. Wonderful service. Wonderful food. Fair prices for being downtown. Check it out. You will not regret.

Stayed at the Hilton and in the lower level shops is where Hathaway's is located. Tired from traveling we just wanted to get some simple good food and Hathaway's looked like it fit the bill. Unfortunately, our family thought it was not that special and we would not recommend it to others. The burgers seem rather small, the fish my... More

Hathaway's is one of my favorite drop in places for lunch by myself or with friends. Love the counter dining and wi-fi access. So many great food choices. Had the fish and mac & cheese special for lunch today. It came out piping hot served with coke slaw and a roll. Delicious! Have not been there for breakfast but the... More

Hathaway's is a blast from the past! Old-school diner environment, great prices, and a friendly atmosphere. It's not fine dining or an organic/vegan paradise, but if you're in the mood for comfort food at good pricing, this is great!

Horrible. Unacceptable behavior by the manager and wait staff. The manager, Sean, refused to take off or even give a discount for food that was not only late, but when it did come, it was incorrect. He then proceeded to yell and SWEAR at us when we suggested that we should be comped for having to wait for incorrect food.... More

Hathaway's is open for breakfast and lunch. It is 50's style classic with music to go along. We breakfast at Hathaway's when we stay at the Hilton Netherland Plaza. The eggs are great. We see many people ordering sausage and gravy.

Open from 7 am to 3 pm, this is an ideal place to come for breakfast or lunch. Many of the baked goods (biscuits, muffins, coconut cake) are made from scratch and are the right size and have the proper balance of sweet and salty. Eggs are prepared with care ("over easy" is just that: delicate but hot). They serve... More

I previously reviewed this after an unfavorable experience where I got there 30 minutes before closing, and they were only doing carryout. Since I was from out of town, I actually had my meal in a parking lot. My last two visits, though, I noticed they stayed open later with full service and the food was much better. Glad it... More
