  • Taft's is AMAZING! The architecture of the old church is breathtaking, food is delicious--especially the loaded tots and tri-tip steak sliders! One of our favorite places to go! The selection of uniqu...  more »
  • The Taft Ale House is a repurposed church building with an impressive upstairs dining and drinking area and a street level taproom that is basic and cozy. A premise of this space is it's dedication to...  more »
  • We entered at the very bottom, in the taproom and we were directed upstairs for food. The taproom was pretty empty around 5pm so when we got upstairs we were really surprised to see a loud, full house...  more »

  • Quick wait time, friendly wait staff. Served only cucumbers as “vegetables” in many of the dishes in December. The Cherrywood beer tasted like an IPA instead of an red ale. Cool old church building currently used as brewery. Didn’t care for the drafty cold air blowing on us while eating or the “community” table setting where you are so close to other people, you hear their conversations where you want to or not. :-)
  • I'm not from around this area. I love trying new beers that taste good. These beers don't taste good. They taste GREAT! The beer beer is delicious! Seriously, try it all. Their food is great! The whole place is just fantastic. Definite place to enjoy food and brew. Plus, I've never done this, their bathrooms are impeccable!
  • The beer was great and the food was good, but here's the rub: we were here for lunch on Dec 27th when it was 10F and their furnace was out (their report, not just my opinion). We had driven quite a ways and just put $2 in the meter so decided to stay. It was freezing throughout our meal. If I owned a business and couldn't offer any heat on a 10F day I'd be SO HAPPY if any customers stayed that I would surely offer a meal discount for the inconvenience, and they did so, and VERY generously, when I asked. That was VERY NICE of them!
  • Marvelous place and wonderful staff. Last night we hosted our sons rehearsal dinner in Nellie's Taproom. They allowed us in earlier in the morning to decorate. Jake, was with us every step of the way last night. Everyone raved about the atmosphere, the ambiance and staff. We did open bar and the bartenders never left anyone hanging and had friendly greetings every time. We did the presidential dinner buffet style and it could not have been tastier. Our son and future daughter in law loved the whole evening.
  • Awesome food. Amazing smell of BBQ smoke when you enter get the mouth watering right away. Service was exceptionally fast and the beer was good.

Where to stay in Cincinnati

To take advantage of the best cultural attractions available in Cincinnati, stay at a hotel downtown. Though pricey, centrally located hotels offer spacious rooms packed with high-tech features, as well as quick and easy access to the city's best shopping, dining, and entertainment.
