What's for dinner?

Enhance your Playhouse experience with one of several on-site or nearby dining options. Whether you're looking for a complete meal, a mid-show snack or just a cocktail from the bar, the Playhouse has you covered.

Just up the hill and within easy walking distance from the Playhouse are numerous restaurants and bars in Mt. Adams. For a list of options, visit TripAdvisor, CincinnatiUSA or Date Night Cincinnati

*Note: Some options on these lists are not within walking distance of the Playhouse. Read more about the locations before making your reservations. 

For a relaxing cocktail before the show or during intermission, the Playhouse operates a full-service bar with beer, wine, soft drinks and liquor.

We are pleased to partner with Vonderhaar's to provide casual fare dining at the Playhouse. Selections include freshly prepared gourmet sandwiches, signature salads, homemade soups and other more elaborate seasonal menus.
