I went there once, with my Homecoming date. Neither of us thought it was all that and wished we'd have gone to the Pine Club instead.

There are some fun blog posts on Dayton restaurants that have gone on. If i can find them, I'll post them in the Dayton forum.

My gf at the time (early 70's) worked there as a server and used to cut off uneaten portions of meals and brought them home for me to eat. I was a poor college student. I used to live down the block from the Pine Club.

A special sauce story. I had lunch at a Big Boy in Monroe, Michigan several years ago. I ordered the classic Big Boy burger and then the waitress asked me if I wanted it Ohio or Michigan style. I had no idea what she was talking about. But then she explained the different sauces.

Back in October Roy Rogers announced a return to Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Indiana, centered around the Cincinnati region. They will be operated by One Holland restaurant franchise group, which also operates Skyline Chili.

York steakhouse was a favorite - was also in Northgate and other malls. They had the best rolls, too. The only Forum I remember was in Brentwood.


Has anyone heard of a resutaurant near the river in Cincinnati or Northern KY, probably form the 1950's-1960's called the Isle of Capri? I have faint memories of our father taking us there when we were little.
