I love the homey atmosphere, and tasty food. It is moderately pricey. If you have a bad experience, talk to the management, don't blab here. This is the type of place where they would actually care, and make sure that you were taken care of in the future. I mostly have eaten carry out, which has always been great. The filet of sole (on fridays) is terrific! My son loves the hamburger and fries, not to mention the tasty pies. :)

I have been going to the Echo for years. Owners have switched hands I understand, but the food has remained consistent. Service is good for the most part, and it may be a Hyde Park scene these days, but I still enjoy going in and sitting on the cramped counter seats,,,(I am 6' 4"")
It has become pricey to eat here, but with gas at 4 bucks a gallon, it is becoming pricey to eay anywhere. I would still recommend ECHO over Bob Evans or any chain, any day.

I read some glowing reviews of this place so I had high expectations. However, once we were seated for lunch it was downhill from there. First, the service was horrible. It was almost like the waitress was going out of her way to ignore us, but there was hardly even anyone there! (I could have understood if it was busy, but we sat right at the counter.) I was hoping the food would make up for it, but it was really just your average, everyday, i-could-cook-something-tastier-than -this, fare. The only notable thing about the inside was the ""melting clock"" they have on the wall.

What a joke, the only reason people eat here is the ?Hyde Park? scene. This is a greasy diner that should have closed years ago. The service is what you would expect, ?what do you want to order? and ?here is your bill?. The food is years ahead of its time, maybe 1962! Sausage gravy!!,, or flour and water not sure what to call it. I ate there today and paid $16.50 for (4) eggs (2) English burnt muffins and (2) sausage patties that were cooked six hours ago!! I guess the charm of this place must reside in the fact that people have been eating here for years and don?t know or expect any better. Another Cincinnati culinary staple I guess.

We try to pop into Echo at least once a month- their omletes nurse hang-overs fabulously and the servers are always cheerful ladies with a lot of charm. There is always an avaliable copy of the day's newspaper and you're guaranteed to recognize at least one smiling face at the bar. Service is quick and attentive. Although I have only gone for breakfast, the menu has great home cooking and it is always an enjoyable and comforting experience.

The problem with this place isn't the food because the food is decent. Its the portions.....can you say small.....i could understand portions being so small if they were charging $3-4 for the entire meal. But by the time you order your food, drink and throw down a tip you're easilt blowing 10-15 per person, and when you leave you have to eat 1 hour later!

Echo has the best egg and cheese sandwiches. It only takes about five minutes no matter how busy. The great thing is that the same lady has served them for the last twenty years. If you are in a hurry....this is the place to go for quality, price, and speed.
