Brent's Landing in Silver Grove to Open August 18


The news traveled fast: a picturesque and historic property in Silver Grove, located at 4229 Mary Ingles Highway, complete with a food truck, picnic tables and boat tie ups was set to open imminently.

Now, just a week after that first announcement we know that Brent's Landing, owned by father and son, Ric and Zac Rohlfer, will open August 18 at 11:00 a.m.

Located at 18 N. Fort Thomas Avenue, in the Hiland Building. 
The duo, along with their wives, Vicki and Kristi, bought the property nearly four years ago and painstakingly began cleaning and clearing it up about two and a half years ago.

What's left is a peaceful setting just across the river from Coney Island and Riverbend.

"I knew the property was unique and that it could be something really special, so I really wanted to acquire it. When we did, it was just a matter of some good old family bonding,” said Zac.

The Brent's Landing food stand adorns an American flag and a ferry, which for many years was the location for the ferry landing for passengers to get to Coney Island from the Kentucky side of the river.


They will serve hand ground hamburgers ($5.50), hotdogs ($1.50), cheese coneys ($3.50), soft pretzel and queso ($3.50) and chips and queso ($2.50). All items come with chips.

Ice cream is also available, (1 scoop, $2 and 2 scoops, $3). Floats are $3.

Brent's Landing will be open for the rest of the season on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, their hours listed below. They will have expanded hours and days at the start of the summer season in 2019.

On Sundays, customers are rent the property. The food stand will be closed, but a charcoal grill is available on site.  Contact Brentslanding@gmail.com for more information on rental.

“Our family wanted to make this beautiful piece of riverfront property a place that others could come and enjoy,” said Ric. “When you come to Brent’s Landing, whether by car or boat, you’ll get a great meal with a relaxing view on the shady river bank. If there isn’t music, we enjoy the sounds of the river just as much and hope you do, too!”

Hours for the rest of the season:

Thursday 5 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Friday 5 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Saturday 11 a.m. – 9 p.m.
