Sleepy Hollow Inn

Review 21 @ Stop #6
Sleepy Hollow Inn
378 Bridge St (Loveland)513.677.0290

Upon driving by the Sleepy Hollow Inn, one notices the lack of windows and can only imagine what is beyond those hallowed walls. First-time visitors are very surprised at what they see when entering. It’s a restaurant with a small bar area sharing its smoky environment with an open, larger dining room. The rest of the visual atmosphere of this dark room will remain a secret so you’ll have to visit to see. An explanation exists on their surprisingly large, reasonably priced menu.

The menu offers The Original ($6.95) and five specialty burgers, all served with chips and a dill pickle. Our large Originals were char-grilled, moist, flavored with some basic seasonings, and served on a toasted bun. YES - Another cook doing something with the meat besides cooking it and treating the bun with respect! Lettuce, tomato, pickle and onion accompany the thick, half-pound patty. Packaged on a larger than average bun, some may find this sandwich to be too thick. As the menu states – “It takes two hands to handle these burgers.”

The flavor, the toasted bun, and a great sandwich taste turn this visit into a big surprise. Although by a slim margin, congratulations to the Sleepy Hollow Inn for achieving the highest award level. Don’t forget to mention the Cincinnati Burger Guys when visiting.

Points: 8.5

It had been many years, since I have been to Sleepy Hollow Inn, and although I love Burgers, I had gone there many times years ago and had never tried their burger, so after reading your review I went the other night and I must agree with your rating, it was an excellent burger, I think the original Mingles Burger I had was slightly better, but this one is the closest I have had so far to that one.
I have yet to try the Oakley Pub, Sleepy Hollow basically has good food all the way around, they use good quality food, nothing cheap, they also have one of the very best tasting Salads around, just a a small simple one, but very good, I will be going back more often now as your review brought back many good memories of visits there when my kids were all little.

I was planning to visit Sleepy Hollow Inn about a week ago, but Thankfully I called 1st, and was disappointed to find on the WEB that Sleepy Hollow Inn Closed in September 2010. I guess they received a good price for their Property, because it indicated that they are looking for another location, and hope to re-open sometime in the future! Barry B.
