Incline Public House Restaurant Review

: Routinely hopping and with a no-reservations policy, Incline Public House often has diners waiting in a loud, vaulted room with concrete floors. But that’s not all bad since it creates the opportunity to enjoy drinks on the massive two-tier deck. The panoramic view is one of the best in the city, and an upper deck shade provides cover from sun and rain. Mostly a craft beer joint, the place also showcases funkier items, like a braised short rib grilled cheese and a Pimm's Cup to wash it down (gin-based Pimm's, lemonade, Sprite and cucumber). Incline prides itself on house-made items like its sauces. There’s comfort food, such as pastrami or mac ‘n’ cheese topped with Grippo's chips, and heart-healthy options of seared tuna or a variety of salads. For a main course, the best bet is a stone-fired pizza (go for the green eggs and ham for a new take on an old pie) or a burger with a twist (think duck confit sliders). Come for dessert, perhaps cheesecake, milk stout bread pudding or a cast-iron chocolate chip cookie with ice cream. Stop by for brunch when you can have an Ultimate Bloody Martini with bacon vodka and bananas Foster french toast. Try Incline on a date night for a cocktail before a Reds game.
