Incline Public House Restaurant Review

: Routinely hopping and with a no-reservations policy, Incline Public House arms its hostess with an iPad to take a picture of parties when they arrive; then, diners are found when a seat opens up in the loud, vaulted room with concrete floors. But the wait isn't all bad since it creates the opportunity for drinks on the massive two-tier deck, which is framed by a panoramic city view. Mostly a craft beer joint, the place also showcases funkier, bar-type appetizers, like fried pickles and shrimp wontons or deep-fried olives. For a main course, the best bet is a stone-fired pizza (try the green eggs and ham for a new twist on an old pie) or a sandwich, like brisket grilled cheese or duck confit sliders. Try Incline on a date night for a cocktail before a Reds game. Come for dessert, perhaps cheesecake, milk stout bread pudding, or a cast-iron chocolate chip cookie with ice cream. Consider, too, stopping by for brunch, when you can have an Ultimate Bloody Martini with bacon vodka and bananas Foster french toast.
