Best jukebox in the city for 15 straight years – the Comet is one of the best bars in Cincinnati hands down. They serve a San Francisco style burrito that is the size of a small child along with a selection of other Tex-Mex foods.

There is always a half dozen craft beers on tap with a selection of 150 bottle beer to chose from. The atmosphere is friendly with all kinds of people in the place. They have live music most nights with great Bluegrass Music on Sunday evenings. Check their calendar on line at cometbar.

When there is n live music there is the best jukebox in the city and that is not just my opinion. City Beat readers vote it best every year.

This place is super over rated. – Everyone is all over this bar but it's really over rated. Their burritos are made with fresh veggies but with shredded chicken. I don't think they even have a grill. They are decent but only if you're drunk. I'm not a fan of bluegrass so the music doesn't do much for me and the smell of body odor is a little too much to bear.

Yes they have a great beer selection but it doesn't help when you can't get served. It's not that their service is bad it's NON-EXISTENT!

Bluegrass & Burritos! – When the Comet Burrito was invented, I don't think anyone said "let's create the most authentic burrito in town." Instead, I'm pretty sure the plan was to create the most delicious thing that you can wrap in foil, and then give you chips with it. As a rule: ALWAYS ORDER THE SALSA OF THE MONTH.

Best burritos and beer selection! – The atmosphere is quaint, but the beer selection is extensive and the burritos are fantastic. A great place to watch live music!

Northside's best bohemian bar features an equally unconventional jukebox. – In Short
One of Cincy's hippest hangs, this bar is a regular hideout for local artists and musicians. It features a natural, arty vibe and occasionally hosts local music shows, from garage rock to their beloved bluegrass Sunday nights. Not enough? There are also massive burritos and other inexpensive food offerings. Shoot pool, down rare-label alcoholic libations, and keep the jukebox gears spinning with great jazz and early rock and roll.

Enough Already – I don't even know if you can call this cash-only warm can of beer place a BAR. The best part about this place was the laugh I let out when I realized that everyone there looked like Joey Ramone.

This place has strange people playing strange music, and somewhere someone forgot that being some oddball rocker only works if you have talent.

If you graduated from High School, College, or even received your GED, you are likely too cerebral for this evironment. This is for the kids that were beaten by the school nerd. Yuk!

Northside has it all, best little bars, best music store, best little shops! This place is a great after work bar. The beers come in a full range of flavors and so do the patrons. Love the diversity, music choices and the food goes great with it all. The parking is always a challenge, but worth the search. The atmosphere is laid back so it's a nice relief for the work stressed.

Love this place! – The closest you can get to a real city bar...in Cincinnati. I always felt 'The Comet' had a vibe that other local bars lacked. After moving to the Pacific Northwest in '96, my thoughts about The Comet were confirmed. Real cities like Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco have Comet-like places all over town. It's too bad Cincinnati only has one, but typical of a city that's unwilling to accept change/diversity. Probably the best jukebox in town is here. Great beers/micobrews too! IPA's, Ambers, why would anyone drink lager? Treat yourself. Visit The Comet.

The Comet is cool! – The Comet has great national acts as well as local bands. It's just an all around great place to go.
