Cool setting in an old bank. The vault is a private room which is cool. Good selection of beers on draft. A few "varnish" locals. Service was good however I didn't challenge any beer knowledge. I went mid week the and the clientele was old ladies with Botox treatments wearing off. The decor is fitting for the clientele, out dated, out of its prime.

My wife and I stopped by to try the place before taking some out of towners, the end result is we wont be coming back. The beer selection was pretty good, but as other people have mention it was on the pricier side of the scale, the wait staff we had was moderately knowledgeable about the beers, but incredibly less so about the food. The restaurant itself has a very interesting motif seeing as it used to be a bank, and the option to see in the vault was very cool indeed.
What I did like is that they did have a good selection of beer, not enough to make you take notice and tell the world about, but enough to make you go "hmmm I will have to think about what I want today"
What I did not like was that I was out in shorts, a polo, and a baseball cap, I did not feel out of place necessarily, but I did see rude stares from the wait staff, as if what are you doing in here. I do not feel that this would be a place you could come and relax for an extended period of time and drink despite their selection of beer. What really draws back my memory from a few weeks back was how poor the food was for both my wife and I and the price we paid for it. I ended up with their "Vault Burger" which sorely needed to be seasoned and my wife with a less than flavor full doughy flat bread "pizza."

Overall if you want a good beer with poor food you are fine, but so many places do so much better.

I went to tellers earlier this week to try out some of the beers on tap. The restaurant is great having a room out of an old safe is cool to check out. The atmosphere was nice super laid back. I was not let down by the beer list the has Goose Island Matilda on tap so I had a few of those along with a weihenstephaner. The food was great everybody I was with ordered different things and I liked the all especially the baton rouge. Prices were a little high on entrees but I ordered a 10" pizza for 10 bucks and every one else was in the same range. Overall I enjoyed the place and I will come back to have some more beer down the road.

The wife and I stopped at Teller's on our trip to Cincinnati from Columbus. I had read the reviews here and knew this place had some good craft beer but possibly a bad, uppity atmosphere.

I'm glad to report this is not true! At least in my opinion... OK, yeah, this is the nicer area of Cincinnati. But then again, this is Cincinnati. Maybe because I hail from New York (now temporarily in Columbus), I didn't find the crowd and place annoying at all.

It was just your typical fancy suburban-style bar/restaurant, with hot blondes and preppy golfer dudes. But nothing offensive! I mean, it's not like there is a doorman outside asking for your blood type. Relax! You could come here on your pj's and be fine, I swear.

Anyways... we sat outside, at a bar on the patio upstairs. Nice people watching and some views of the Cincinnati roofs. :-)

Bartender was right there, fast and efficient service. He knew his beers. Nice selection! High prices, though, reminded me of New York.

Food? We ordered a brie plate that we thought would be a fondue and ended being just a chunk of brie. Somewhat disappointing and pricey, but alright. I was there for the beer anyway...

You can tell they take care of their beers. Nice curated selection. Two days after I visited, a huge craft-beer event was held there, with the whole place closed for the party! Nice.

All in all, if I lived in Cincinnati, I would frequent this place. As it is, I will certainly go back whenever I'm in the city.

So much potential with this place.

I couldn't imagine a worse atmosphere. The largest grouping of snobby turdballs and yuppie assholes ever. I like to go there after 12 hours of landscaping just to piss off the smug fart sniffers. If you just don't give a fuck, then you'll enjoy this place because it really does bring in some fantastic beers. The selection isn't the biggest but big enough and they usually bring it. The bartenders are skid marks as well and aren't the most knowledgeable but are fair quick in bringing the beers. I haven't tried the food because I can't afford Beluga Cavier and partially fertilized unicorn embryo's, but I hear that it's pretty damn good. Pretty expensive... I want to say the Palo Santo I ordered was $9. Big and rare beer, but $9....

What a dilemna this place provides to the craft beer drinker. Located in a uppity part of Cincinnati (Hyde Park). This is a former bank building that now hosts a upscale restaurant and bar. The tap selection is among the best in Cincinnati. Well represented on a regular basis and even catching the limited beers and releases. All good on those fronts.
However, where the problem lies is with the area. First, parking is a royal pain in the ass. If you're lucky enough to find a parking spot, you'll be aggravated walking in this place. This is yuppie heaven. Nothing but uppity wine/macro drinking peeps with a sweater vest or sweater tied around their neck. The patrons don't understand and will get downright snobbish with those that don't belong.
Kudos to ownership for rocking a wonderful tap lineup. It truly is something worth seeking out. Us beer geeks need to hit this place like Caddy Day on Caddyshack and run off some of the snobbery. Then this place would be a regular stop.

Teller's in Hyde Park is not bad. Not so great either. They do have a nice selection of beers on tap, all my standard Diagio favorites, Smithwick's Guinness, Harp. They also carry 2-3 from Bell's which I enjoy as well as several craft/microbrews.

The amosphere here is pretty cool, a gorgeous bar full of beer and wine, as well as being in an old bank building, there is a vault you can eat inside.

Now, the reason I reviewed is because the food here is nothing special. I really dont see how so many people think its great.

Both times I went here the food was mediocre. My Girl had pastas both times that were no better than what I could make at home. Same with the steaks I had.

Go for the beer, not the food.

As others have stated this place is not your average beer bar. Located in the heart of Hyde Park, one of Cincy's wealthiest communities, it's not exactly a shorts and flip flops kind of place. I've eaten here many times, and the food never dissapoints. To me this is a great place to take a date for a quality upscale meal while still getting to enjoy a killer beer list. If you're with wine lovers, they have a nice wine list as well. The building is an old bank (hence the name), and they've retained a lot of the original structure to make for a really interesting room.

I was extremely impresed with the beer list. Over 20 taps, and some beers I've never seen anywhere else in Cincy. The ones that I can remember: Fuller's ESB, Southern Teir, La Chouffe, Two Brother's Cane & Ebel, Stone Pale Ale, Oaked Arrogant Bastard, Great Lakes Edmund Fitz, Bells Oberon, Two Hearted, Rogue Dead Guy, Victory Prima Pils, and many more...

I would recommend checking it out when you're in the city.

This place is really neat! It's an old bank and still utilizes a few BANK-LIKE features in the decor. Parking is a bit of a bitch in this Hyde Park neighborhood.

The beer selection is quite good with nearly 30 different taps of premium craft beer. There are selections from Goose Island, Phin & Matts, Bells, etc.... However, I would like to see MORE emphasis on local brews like Barrelhouse, Mt. Carmel and Christian Moerlein. The food is yummy and tastefully prepared.

This is clealy an UP-SCALE place and the prices reflect that.

Okay, so once a found a parking spot near the downtown area, which was easier said then done, I was able to stroll into this fine establishment. To be honest my first impression of this place was kind of intimidating. The outside was towering with large glass doors and fancy script and almost a marble look to it. Very high class looking, and I was not so high class looking at the time ;). Once I entered I could tell this was a very nice place. Everything was very clean and proper, however something seemed out of place. A huge beer list and about 20 or so taps. I saw several Avery products on tap, along with Bell’s, Great Lakes, and Wynchwood for you import fans. Everyone seemed very friendly even though I felt really out of place. I sat down and had an Old Jubilation which was very fresh and one of my favorites. Overall this would be a great destination for a business lunch. I would definitely return here, just dress a bit nicer next time.
