Maury’s Tiny Cove Steakhouse was established in 1949 by Maurice J. Bibent III. Maury was a Taurus and adopted the image of a bull as his logo and mascot. He used a dancing bull holding a martini as his sign above the main entrance of the restaurant as an image of the good times guests could expect at Maury’s Tiny Cove. Seventy five years later, that same sign still hangs above that same entrance attracting guests to enjoy a good time and classic cocktail.
Walking through the door at Maury’s is like traveling through a time portal to the 1950’s. Classic red and black booths, low ceilings, dark paneling and low lighting all help to evoke the ambience of a classic speakeasy. One almost expects to see Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin having cocktails at the bar.
Maury made the restaurant famous by serving “charry grilled steaks” seafood and chicken and many of his original items, named after local sports teams, are still on the menu. The current owners Matt and Angela Huesman have been committed to maintaining the tradition of serving great food and drinks in a comfortable, cozy environment served by friendly, professional staff. In recent years Maury’s has been recognized as Cincinnati’s oldest steakhouse, one of the city’s top dining rooms, the place most likely to see a member of the rat pack and the location for the filming of a pivotal scene of Academy nominated movie, Carol.
