What to expect from the Roebling Point Food Tour
ENJOY UNIQUE FOOD & DRINK IN A CHARMING NEIGHBORHOOD ON THE BANKS OF THE OHIO RIVER
How would you like to see beautiful views of the Ohio River, walk upon the Roebling Suspension Bridge, stroll past million dollar historic mansions and enjoy sit down dining in five unique restaurants? We begin our tour dining at an authentic Irish Pub owned by an Irishman. Next we enjoy some locally sourced chicken smoked on site paired with a craft beer brewed right around the corner. You can't get any fresher than that! The next restaurant is famous for it's specially prepared comfort food. Hmmm, I wonder what that could be? Have you heard the fairy tale the Three Billy Goats Gruff? It's the namesake of our fourth restaurant. For the grand finale, do you have a sweet tooth? We have a dessert for you!
The food samplings on this tour are ample for lunch and include a wide variety of dishes to please every guest.
