Visited for dinner with a group on a Wednesday. Cool interior, renovated bank building with many of the original hardware touches. We ate in the vault, which I thought would be cool, but was actually a little ratty and run down. In terms of selection, there were about 30 beers on draft, and quite a few bottle and can offerings. Selection was nothing special, though there were quite a few local selections, and well chosen national brands. I had a Ballast Point Pils and was happy. Food ranged from OK to good. Service was decent. Overall, cool building to check out, fun for groups. Overall, from a beer selection there are other places to go in the vicinity.
64 = ★★ (Just ok)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
I expected a packed house per the reviews and it was fairly empty. Decor was fun. Weepy lesbian couple in the hallway to the menís room was unexpected. Food was delicious. Per my wife service was too quick. Had all the beers I expected.
A nice, up-scale bar/restaurant in Hyde Park Cincinnati. I stopped by on a late Sunday afternoon and the place was fairly empty. It is a wide open space with plenty of tables and backrooms as well as a nice, long straight bar with flat-screen TVs. Very clean. The draught menu is quite extensive, perhaps 25-30 beers, although some of them are macros. A good, diverse selection that is bound to have something interesting (I got a BBC Saison and Bells Java Stout). They do have a house beer as well (the pale ale was on when I was there, I just got a sample of it and did not care for it). The food menu is on the pricy side, though not exorbitant (sandwich-type items for ~$15, entrees more pricy like $30) and the food is good, not your standard pub fare (I got the Baton Rouge Wrap which was very tasty). Anyway, overall I quite enjoyed the place and certainly would like to return for both the beer and food. Worth stopping by for sure!
Good beer menu. The staff is lacking on their knowledge of the menu though and suggests whatever the hot seller is (I went when Brew Masters was airing, so DFH was being pushed). With that said, if you know what you are doing, it is a great place, but a little on the pricey side.
