The food was pretty good. But our server, Paige, was the best. She was quick with the refills, and took great care of us. Kabobs were good. Wings were good.


Wife and I ate dinner here. She had fried Haddock sandwich, and I had the grilled salmon sandwich (the best I’ve had in years). The service was friendly and attentive. The vies of the Ohio River and sunset are fabulous! We’ll be back!!


Great food and service! Our server was Sadie and she made sure we had what we needed and kept our glasses full. Beautiful view from our table of the sunset. Definitely recommend and would go back.

Meh. The food is why I come here: decent burgers, interesting appetizers. The service is what will keep me from returning on anything other than an occasional basis. Early Friday evening, fairly busy, I get it. But our food for a party of three took 40+ minutes to arrive and no one refilled our drinks during that period. We weren't drinking alcohol so no one was making bank from our cokes and waters, maybe that was it.


The location on the Ohio River is gorgeous. The various seafood dishes are tasty. And the Servers are so friendly and fantastic. The downside of the Cabana is they allow smoking anywhere with no separation. If you don’t like tobacco-smoked grouper or salmon, don’t eat here.

The Cabana is one of my local favorites. Menu is dynamite, drinks are amazing. Perfect if you're on the river and want to stop for a bite to each while you're boating. Has docks to tie off on and gas pumps!!

The view is great. Kids love to see all the boats go by. Great appetizers. Steak on a stick and peel and eat shrimp with the spicy cocktail sauce are the bomb. Servers are always friendly.

We used to come here on the weekends , listening to music and enjoying a few drinks. I suggested to another couple to meet us there for lunch, drinks, and the view. The view of the river was very nice. However, the food( fish and chips) was the worst I'd ever had. The fish was way over cooked. I wanted a draft beer, asked for a Miller lite. No such luck. I ended up getting some kind of blue drink that tasted of coconut. After 2 of the blue drinks, I still couldn't taste any alcohol. At least the service was good. I wouldn't advise anyone to eat there.

First time here. Great view of the Ohio river. Busy place. Had a drink at the bar while we waited for a table. Check wait times and consider calling ahead before coming. Had Caribbean Fish Tacos. They bring the plate of ingredients as you build 3 soft tacos. A generous potion of grilled mahi-mahi with a mango salsa, cucumber dressing and shredded cheese were provided. Delicious. My wife had the pot roast sandwich. Excellent.

What a wonderful surprise this was. It is definitely off the beaten path. You cannot see it from US 50, but the locals definitely know about it. Every car on the parking lot had Ohio plates but ours. All of the seating is open air. The atmosphere is very casual, but people of all ages were there. The menu also has something for every type of appetite. I had a wonderful salmon dish on a bed of slaw that included chopped Brussel Sprouts and my wife had a brat that was enormous. I highly recommend Cabana.

Enjoyed the outside atmosphere along the Ohio! Kids loved the gourmet grilled cheese on a pretzel bun.Draft choices are limited.

We had no idea what to expect when we walked in, but man, what a super cool place. The atmosphere is amazing. The food wasn’t anything to brag about, but it wasn’t bad. Service was excellent. Bottom line, go here if you want to have fun.
