Here's how much people love the fried chicken at Greyhound Tavern: On Mondays and Tuesdays, when most restaurants are stone cold dead, it's fried chicken night at the Greyhound and guests without reservations have to wait 30 minutes for a table. The fish is so good Greyhound has been "retired" from most of those Lenten fish fry competitions because it won so often." According to the Cincinnati Enquirer's Jim Knippenberg, Fort Mitchell's Greyhound Tavern is the longest continuously operating restaurant in Northern Kentucky, having first opened its doors in 1921 during Prohibition as an ice-cream parlor called the Dixie Tea Room.
