I moved to Cincinnati a year ago. My wife is from here so I've spent time at a number of *beer* places on visits. My usual haunt is/was the Dilly Delli in Mariemont. Chuck, the owner and booze guy, is such a beer snob I like to show him off to my out of town guests. I live near Hyde Park and decided to meet friends for dinner at Teller's. It would be a cop out to say I agree with all the other reviews, so I'll add a couple of observations.
- If you're visiting from our of town and have a means of transportation, Teller's is worth the visit. It's on the square in Hyde Park (one of Cinci's most admired city neighborhoods) which allows you to walk around and window shop or do family things as a cover up to your real intent.
- It's in an old bank. You can even sit in the vault which is usually reserved for private parties.
- The beer, wine, and food selection is excellent. Anytime I can select a beer I've never heard of, I endorse the establishment. In this case, I had a winter beer from some brewery I'm still trying to remember.
- The menu ranges from salads & sandwiches to steak & seafood dinner. All in our party enjoyed our meals.
- Yes, this is a bit of a yuppie hangout. We finished dinner around 11 and had a hard time leaving through the bar. Most of the pretty crowd is drinking bottled schwag from the macros but that's all the more reason to come out and support a place that stocks so many excellent, craft taps.
PS - have your dessert next door at Graeter's Ice Cream. The Moca Chocolate Chip is to die for.

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.
