It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that we will be shutting down temporarily as of 8:00pm Thursday March 19th. As a business owner, this is the most difficult decision I’ve ever faced. It seems like a month has elapsed since we opened our doors for the season on March 15th under unprecedented circumstances. We have taken every possible precaution and have gone above and beyond every single recommendation and requirement of state agencies and our local health department. However, I feel that the only way I can fully protect my employees and the community we love is to temporarily close our doors at this time.
This past week I personally met so many of our loyal customers. I’ve never felt a stronger sense of community. I want to say thank you to every person who supported us and other local businesses. I have been overwhelmed by the passion of our customers and the resiliency of our community during this difficult time.
I want to also take the opportunity to thank my employees who never complained, who rose to every challenge, and stood by me as I grappled with how to navigate this crisis. It’s a true testament to our amazing team. I want to especially thank my Manager Tammy Walker who has been in the trenches with me every step of the way these past two weeks.
Finally, I leave you with this simple message: WE WILL BE BACK! The root beer shall flow again and I look forward to toasting a cold mug with each of you on that day. Stay strong, stay safe, and we WILL get through this.

A CINCINNATI LANDMARK
The Root Beer Stand," the wonderful eatery that signifies summer in Greater Cincinnati, opened as an A & W Root Beer Stand in 1957. Since then, Cincinnati Magazine has named it as the best place to quaff a root beer in town and ranked "The Stand" in the number 12 slot among the "Top 100 Places in Cincinnati." 'The Stand' has been a close-knit family operation from day one and remains so today.
Sure, we're known for our famous footlong cheese coneys and the best root beer in the Queen City, but we make a tasty burger too! In 2015 our quarter pounder was named one of the top 45 burgers in Cincy. Hey, we'll take it. Check it out!
CINCINNATI'S ORIGINAL CRAFT BREW
Recognized as the best root beer in the Queen City, our signature brew is made on-site and has been since 1957. We'll keep making it as long as you keep drinking it! Learn more about how it all started here.
