We went there for an early dinner after the Auto Show, it's just walking distance from the convention hall. This popular pub was founded in 1860 when the Erie Canal (not Central Parkway) was the main "road" for commerce. It ran non-stop until 1919 when Prohibition ended the fun. Back in business since 1986, it has preserved the best of it Over the Rhine heritage and hospitality and oysters. Did I mention the oysters? (All 3 kinds are from the East Coast), lots of other simple, delicious dishes and a handful of craft beers (complete bar, too) rounds out the makings for a delicious dinner & fun time!

Food was subpar and way over priced. Came out cold. Didn't say anything the second time. Oysters we're so so. Red snapper looked pre- cooked. Cheese grits were bland and lumpy. No plans on returning.

Very lovely little place with a great menu full of oyster and seafood options. Would love to have stayed to try the night life but lunch was very good.

I’ve been to this place many times and have never had a bad experience. They are known for their oysters- I don’t do oysters put love the rest of their seafood is fantastic. Nice comfortable atmosphere. You can dress up or go casual.

My family and I visited Washington Platform for lunch before going to a craft fair and Blink. A family friend recommended this place and I'm glad she did! We all had crab items since it was crab fest and everything was wonderful. Too bad I live out of state because I would like to try other items on the menu.
