We had lunch here while visiting the park which made it very handy. Decor and uniforms are to be of the 1850's period. German-influenced items are included on the menu. Mettwrust with sauerkraut and German potato salad--good!

Enjoyed our lunch and our beer flight. The building has the feel of an old brewery, but, in fact, has only been around for awhile. They brew their selections right there, so you can see the giant vats. Waitstaff is dressed in costume, which definitely...More

Our family had lunch at Carillon Brewing Company and had difficulty conversing because of the conversational clamor in the room. Nevertheless, the food was quite tasty and the service was excellent. Also, the decor was interestingly historical.

Their breads, buns, rolls and pretzels are not gluten free, but they have several vegetable sides and meat dinners - the roasted chicken is delicious.

Carillon Historical Park welcomes you to the nation's first production brewery housed in a museum. Carillon Brewing Co is a place where the 1850s in Dayton comes alive. Historical recipes, ingredients, and techniques are used right before you to reproduce the ales that Daytonians once enjoyed. Each drink is a story about how beer has changed over time. Our hearty fare continues this dedication to history by sharing dishes by the early immigrant brewers. (Food served 11:00am-9:00pm daily.)
