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.

A highly recommended working brewery and restaurant in a museum setting. Both beer and food are what would typically be served in an 1850s Dayton alehouse. The ales are darker and more complex than post-Prohibition lagers, while the food is equally hearty. Both are excellent....More

If you like history and learning how things are made, you'll love the brew house! They have a working brewery in the restaurant and exhibit how it was made in the "olden days." The food is also made in similar fashion and it's German food...More

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.)
