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.

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 Bells, 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.

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.

This really should be reclassifed as a brewpub since the Main Street beers, formally brewed at the Main Street Brewpub, are now served here since Main Street became The Jump Cafe and went mostly wino. This a great location in the best part of Hyde Park, just off the square and in the former Hyde Park Savings and Loan building. Nicely redone and quite upscale, still the tap selections are quite good. I believe the publican referred to over 30 tap beers. The furnishing are very nice and for a former '50s bank setting seemed quite homey and comfortable. Pricey food menu with sandwiches in the $10 range, entrees upwards from $15. Good service, actually it seemed overstaffed with waitstaff; only on-street parking.

This place is very cool. This is an old bank, that has been converted to a beer bar/trendy place to eat. The outside still looks like an old bank, with large columns. Inside is very open. Two story ceiling, with a high skylight. Outside on the second floor is a great beer garden with a bar outside. Good selection of draft beers, and bottles. Pretty wide range, from Ephemere, Chimay, to Avery IPA and Oak Barrel Stout. This place was pretty busy at lunchtime. Our waitress was friendly, however was not quick enough for us to be able to order food. They could also use more proper glassware. Overall, a good place to have a beer or two.

Very neat place here. I went in very excited as they have 30 beers on tap. Well unfortunately none of them were beers I was overly thrilled about. However the selection was pretty good.
Very nicely decorated, bright, clean interior with a back porch area upstairs that has a cool brick bar and fireplace.
The one knock on this place and the reason why I probably won't return (unless I hear they get a draught beer in I have to try) is that the prices were outrageous. $8 bucks for a Piraat draught. Dissapointing.

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 is a nice neighborhood bar in Cincinnati.
As you walk in from the street, the place seems tailored to the "upper class". Customers and bartenders did seem nice, however. It's prett dark inside, and rather quiet. Soft music is also playing in the background. Decent atmosphere, but nothing great. The quality is decent. The last two times I went, I got a Sam Adams and Bar Harbor Blueberry on-tap, and neither tasted very good. It could have just bad beer from the brewery, but it could've also been that Teller's wasn't storing their kegs good, or they were old. Anyhow, service seems good at this bar. You never wait long at the bar for a beer and when you are at your table, the bartenders come around and ask if you need anything else. Selection, however, is a big strength of this bar. Over twenty beers on-tap. Some include: Lindemann's Lambic Framboise, Sam Adams Boston Lager, Bell's Oberon, Bar Harbor Blueberry, Stone Arrogant Bastard, Stella Artois, and many others that I can't remember. There's also your typical macros. I haven't had the food here, so I can't rate that. Prices do seem high, however. $5.25 for a pint seems high even for this section of town. Overall, Teller's is a good place to chat with friends over some good draft beer.

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.
