Whether you’re visiting from Cincinnati, OH or you’re a local in search of new flavor, the Fort Wright restaurant scene is a great place for a memorable meal. From steakhouse classics to modern innovations, we’re happy to introduce you to the top four Fort Wright, KY restaurants that will make your tastebuds sing!

Harmon’s Barbecue

If you haven’t heard of Harmon’s Barbecue, you’re in for a treat! Foodies from Florence to Covington make the trek to dine on the gingham tablecloths of one of the most popular Fort Wright, KY restaurants. This is your spot for low and slow smoked meats like pulled pork, wings, and the crowd favorite: USDA prime brisket. Don’t miss out on sides like loaded baked potatoes and mac and cheese. And of course, leave room for banana pudding!

Walt’s Hitching Post

When you want to kick back and unwind, Walt’s Hitching Post offers the warm atmosphere and delectable dining experience that you want. Featuring a “rustic luxury” decor, this classic steakhouse has tons of personality – and a menu that you won’t forget! Decadent dinners like charred bone-in ribeye and bourbon-barrel poached salmon really satisfy, and there are plenty of tasty vegetarian options as well. Additionally, Walt’s has an extensive selection of fine spirits and craft cocktails.


Just a short drive to Covington, you’ll find the German Gastropub known as Wunderbar. Though this unique Bavarian restaurant is small in size, it’s big in flavor with classic German staples like schnitzel sandwiches and bacon-stuffed pierogis. During sunny days, you can even dine al fresco in the picnic area outside. And if you’re a fan of German brews, there’s a large selection of imports to quench your thirst.

Parlor on Seventh

Offering a modern twist on old classics, Parlor on Seventh in nearby Covington brings innovative flavors to the Kentucky area. Share a plate of cast-iron seared buffalo cauliflower or “Hot Mess” nachos, covered in pulled pork and beer cheese. Indulge in house specials like the pistachio-pesto chicken thighs or buttery Hot Brown. But just be sure to sample the signature campfire cookies & milk before you go!
