Although it’s undergone some big changes over the years, Kitty’s Sports Grill in Cincinnati, OH, has stayed true to the reason why it opened its doors: To provide friends and fans with a way to celebrate their love of sports with great food and fun. However, there’s much more to the history of Kitty’s Sports Grill, so they’ve gathered some highlights from over the years of what’s made them one of the area’s leading sports bars.
The Rich History of Cincinnati’s Leading Sports Bar
Kitty's Came from Humble Beginnings
The birth of Kitty’s Sports Grill was in 1982, when owner Kathleen Watson decided to purchase 218 West Third Street. In the following years, the location underwent several face-lifts, first being remodeled to emulate a 1960s bar, then Ms. Kitty’s Saloon, before finally becoming the first-class sports bar it is today. Kathleen also enlisted the help of her son, Billy, to maintain the bar, giving it that intimate family feel that so many of its customers have grown to love over the years. In 1996 Kathleen handed the reigns to Billy, who has done a wonderful job maintaining the great quality and family focus Kitty’s Sports Grill was founded upon.
Its Prime Location Makes It Perfect for Sports Fans
When Paul Brown Stadium moved across the street from Kitty’s in 2000, they saw it as a sign to further their commitment to providing Cincinnati sports fans with a one-stop shop to celebrate their love for the game. Its location makes it the ideal place to watch the game on one of their many high-definition televisions, or grab a beer and basket of wings before heading to the stadium. Their aim now is to turn the location into a Cincinnati sports landmark, by providing the best pub food, live entertainment, and legendary service in the area.
Kitty’s Offers an Extensive, Mouth-Watering Menu
Kitty’s Sports Grill has a laundry list of classic starters, everything from fried pickles to Kitty’s loaded hand-cut fries, topped with jalapeños, chili, cheese, and bacon. All of their wings are seasoned with their signature dry rub, grilled on natural wood coals, then flash-fried and tossed in the sauce of your choice. Their menu also features an extensive array of burgers and sandwiches, like their best-selling prime rib steak sandwich, topped with grilled peppers, onions, mushrooms and provolone cheese. As part of their commitment to providing the best food in town, they’re also expanding their menu soon to offer breakfast and brunch.
