Dick's Last Resorts Opening at Newport on the Levee

NEWPORT — Ready for a little social ribbing with friends and family?
Dick’s Last Resort, where sarcasm in fun is always on the menu along with the food, will open March 11 at Newport on the Levee.
The national chain that brands itself as “The Joint Yer Mama Warned You About” will anchor the corner of Third and Saratoga streets at the Levee. It will be open for lunch, dinner and late into the night.
“We are extremely excited about serving and becoming a part of the Newport, Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati community,” Dick’s President and COO Ralph W. McCracken stated Monday in a press release.
Servers will audition for their jobs, which are also a role, McCracken told the Enquirer. The restaurant serves one-of-a-kind drinks such as “Trash Can Punch,” appetizers including Wicked Gator Tail and a full menu of freshly prepared dishes.

FTM will be there to give you the scoop before it opens. Dick's Last Resort will be located in the former Bulldog's location, which was owned by Attorney Eric Deters. 

Bulldog's Roadhouse (16% on Urban Spoon, 1.5 stars on Yelp) closed in 2010 and has been empty since then.

  1. LOL. I went back and looked at my review from Yelp. I completely stand by it. Eric Deters is a grade A jerk! Never did get my refund!

    I'm glad something new is going in there. I can't stand driving by it and seeing the Bulldog's marquis.

    Here was my review for Deters' old restaurant:
    The service was beyond horrible, drinks spilled, wrong food brought to table. Then spent 30 minutes looking for staff (entire staff) outside smoking. Sent a complaint email the next day and was informed I'd receive a refund of my tab that night. 5 weeks go by and nothing. Sent a follow up email to owner, who informed me I would be getting nothing and that I was an 'ass', his words exactly. This coming from the owner and a lawyer! Contacted my bank who have already issued refund!! The worst experience I have had in 42 years!!!!! Horrible!!
