I’ve been here several times over the years. First off, this is a much better place in the summer or warmer months as there is a lot more room and some great fence leaning views of downtown Cincinnati. The ambiance is typically a huge draw. Last time I was here everyone was singing and dancing and standing tables/benches. Exactly what you would expect from a German style bier haus. Come early if you want to find a seat though (we sat at the corner of the bar). During the winter everyone is relegated to the inside or a small heated tent area just outside. Service is okay, nothing great but since it was so packed I wasn’t too upset. They moved as fast as they could at the bar and seemed mostly friendly. Selection is good, typical German food and they seemed to always have four or five beers on tap. Some don’t like this but you can’t expect a bigger tap with other breweries beers. Just enjoy the fresh beer they have on tap and always try the monthly rotating seasonals! Not very cheap but compared to

Best time to visit is when the reds are not in town because otherwise parking is $5. Nice terrace with view over Cincinnatti downtown. Beer selection is limited but the seasonal black beer ( Schwarzbier) was excellent. The food is reasonable but the smoking was a negative. The german music in the main hall was not our taste.

Place is a big beer hall, with loud polka music, and nice German Style decor. Parking is a little difficult and will run around $5. My biggest beef with this place was the amount of smoke (I didn’t know you could smoke at inside restaurants still). Busy for a Saturday.

This place is a traditional German beer hall. Big outdoor seating area and communal seating.the beers are all German styles and are solid examples. You won’t find much ground breaking brewing, but thats not what beer hall beer is for. This is a very fun place with good German food and beer.

This place is solid all the way around. Nothing stands out as spectacular, but it’s good, food, good beer, good service, and a good atmosphere. A good place to go with groups too.

Finding this place was a bit tough as it wasn’t where the GPS said it would be. Finding a place to sit down inside was just as tough as it was packed late on a Friday night. Luckily a nice couple gave up their spots at the bar for us so we were able to eat and sit, which was nice after walking close to 30 miles the last two days. The place reminds me of every other German style brewpub/restaurant I’ve been to. Large, wooden, festive, german garb worn by all and large pints of lager with nary a hop in sight. The food was good, the beer was okay and the service was great. As a personal aside, I hate valet parking and it’s the only option here. I can park my own vehicle and don’t want anyone else in it. Perhaps it’s a way to get people from parking in their lot and heading elsewhere.

Really fun spot - big German food & beer drinking hall, oftentimes with live oompah music. I stop everytime I’m in the area.

Nice beer. Your classic German beer place with nice selection of food and beer. The day we were there a nice group of people around the bar. Food is good German brewpub fare. Will stop each time I’m through the area.
