Great location. Good bottle selection and good brews on tap. Very friendly and beer aware staff. Can get single bottles to drink at bar with your food. Not listed in Cincinnati, but may be one of top 5 local combined package and deli locations around.

My sister picked up two Dieu du Ciel Péché Mortels that were reserved for me at Dilly Deli courtesy of JCW (thanks John) and she raved about the place.....
"Wow! We went to the Dilly Deli tonight. The food was very, very good! Yum!!!! Rick got some "Old Speckled Hen" beer. He had two glasses. I got the BBQ pork chop, soup and a baguette. I have leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Rick got a BBQ sandwich that was huge!!! We got an appetizer and we shared a desert....Peanut Butter Pie! That was absolutely delicious. With your beer, our dinner and tip...we spent $100.00. It had a nice atmosphere and Chuck went and got the beer on the list. Well, we know where it is now. We’re going to keep it in mind....oh, and if we go out again...I’m calling ahead to get a whole peanut butter pie. It won’t be something we do often because it’s $35.00. You’ve got your beer and I had my pie. LOL Love ya, Mary ".....
I must visit this place when I go to Cincy this summer.

Wow! John’s (JCW) recommendation of this place is validated. The store is high end in every way (ambiance, food, beer selection). Just a sampling of what they have: 3F, Bells, Weyerbacher, Stone, Victory, DFH, etc...As far as Belgians go...the options were fantastic (Fantome, De Dolle, all the trappists but Westy). I was treated well and reminded not to forget my brown paper bag for my Liquor de Malt. The only gripe I have regards the prices - on the high side. Even this is justified, as this is in a nice area (high rent) and the beer selection is hand-picked and organized with care. No time wasted sifting through swill. Don’t miss this spot for a sandwich (crab cakes recommended), a pint and a couple of cases to go.

I always love going to Dilly Deli. Eleven beer taps, 10 are micros and/or imports and a lambic. I’ve enjoyed beers such as Stone’s IPA, Stone’s 7th,8th,9th & 10th Anniversary, Double Bastard, Sierra Harvest Ale, Old Rasputin, and the tap list goes on and on. Very good bottle selection of both imports and domestics. You can buy bottles in six packs, singles etc and drink them at our table or take them to go! Very good food. Great wine selection. Jazz usually played on stereo at the bar via a cable connection during the day, live entertainment on weekend evenings. Host beer & wine tasting events periodically.
