Pelts and guns hang from the walls of the dining room at Kreimer’s Bier Haus, lending it a hunting lodge’s rustic charm. As hunting lodges often are, the eatery is a hub for succulent meat dishes such as rib-eye steaks and smoked sausages. However, they place a high premium on veggies as well, and the kitchen serves as a hub for shredded cabbage. Founded in 1982, the German eatery dishes sauerkraut piled on sausages or fried into sauerkraut balls. At white-clothed tables overlooking the Little Miami River, diners can also nosh on seafood such as grilled salmon and jumbo shrimp and sip an eclectic array of beer, wine, and cocktails. During the summer, tables on an expansive riverside patio allow diners to feel the wind in their hair or persuade rain clouds to refill their water glasses.
