The waiter was attentive and the food was fantastic. Not a lot of choices but it was really good. Place is small and loud. Make sure to get the specialty mashed potatoes.

Really enjoyed our experience overall at Kreuger's in OTR. The food tasted great and was priced fairly. The service was excellent and it was not overcrowded. They were able to cater to my dietary restrictions without issue as well. Would definitely love to come back!

The food was fresh, delicious, promptly served. The waiter attentive without being annoying. A little noisy for a business lunch, but the client raved about the fries, so winning!

I had the chili, and it was good. The fries were great.

Visited Krueger's Tavern for an early lunch, prior to a Cincinnati Pops performance at Music Hall. They had a great selection of Beers available from local brewers, and a great lunch menu. Appetizers and entrees were outstanding, hostesses and servers were friendly and skilled. Will visit more often.

We’ve eaten here before because it’s close for walking to Music Hall. The food is tasty and they have some fun choices but the menu is a little limited. The tomato jam is delicious, the blueberry mojito was yummy, and everything was good. It’s just so loud we couldn’t even have a conversation. So, so loud!

We love Krueger’s? Best burger in town. Pretzels and cheese are also great. Love going with friends and enjoying their beers and cocktail pitchers.

Elevated comfort food was delish along with great service and a pleasing casual atmosphere. Examples of the elevated food were sauerkraut balls (crumbled bratwurst and sauerkraut breaded and deep fried...yum) red beans and rice as a side (in the Midwest!) and layers of flavor on the specialty burgers. We will definitely be back!

Krueger’s is always the best. Couldn’t ask for better service. I made reservations for Valentine’s Day weekend because my wife and I have never had bad food or service here and this visit solidified that. I could eat here everyday, thank you Krueger’s staff, you are the best. ❤️

Nothing special about the burgers here, although they get rated highly in local articles. I thought it was average and that the food was good for the value. If you're already in OTR and are hungry for a burger, I would recommend it. I would not recommend it for a special trip however. Downstairs seemed loud and seating upstairs was tight, but reasonable.

Amazing burgers at a fair price! The Bleu Gruyere is second to none. Love it so much. The only downside to this place is the noise level...the music is playing, the tvs are on, and conversation of neighboring diners is close. But the food! Yum!

We stopped at Krueger’s after visiting Findlay Market. Smaller menu, but a lot of delicious choices. Our favorites were the Cuban sandwich and cheeseburger.

Excellent food, great service. We had the beer cheese and pretzels, and each had a burger. All of it was very good. The beer cheese was likely too much for just a couple, likely better for a larger group. I liked the greens on the Bacon burger, was just regular lettuce on the Krueger burger, would perhaps ask for a substitute on the greens next time. All very good !!!

Our party of six stopped here before going to Music Hall. We had reservations for 5 pm and were seated promptly when we arrived. Service was great and our food was excellent. The noise level was a little loud, but that's probably because we were right by the door. We'll definitely return!

Our first time to Kruger’s. Loved the location. The food was very good, we are watching carbs and there were very few low carb options on the menu. We did a bun less burger and sausage which were both very tasty. Service was very good. We longed for warm dry weather so we could enjoy the upstairs patio.
