Catering to our Local Palates

Over the Rhine (OTR for short) is a historic German area of Cincinnati experiencing an incredible revival! There are several unique shops, restaurants, coffee shops and event venues opening there. It is truly a centralized gathering place within the city for tourists and locals alike. So, what better ‘truly Cincinnati’ area to name one of our popular local flavor menus after?

Introducing the OTR Menu! We combined the historic German fare with the new socially and culturally diverse Over the Rhine. It’s McHale’s version of some Cincinnati favorites!

 

Appetizers & Salads

We offer a 4-star buffet and 5-star stations OTR menu. You can select from these appetizers and more. Pictured above is our Bavarian Soft Pretzels served with our Spicy Local Ale Cheese.

Our Kim Chee Egg Rolls or Reuben Egg Rolls are hand passed to your guests by our professional wait staff and served with dipping sauce.  And, our Applewood Bacon and Beer Cheese tarts are a ‘can’t miss’ for you and your guests. These delicious bites are also passed to guests by our wait staff. The Freddie Salad. Mixed Greens, Bacon, Blue Cheese and Fresh Tomatoes with a creamy blue cheese dressing. 

 

Stations

Nothing says Cincinnati like a Bier Garden Station!

Ale Braised Sausage with fresh Sauerkraut, crusty dinner rolls and Whole Grain Mustard, warm Applewood Smoked Bacon Potato Salad, Braised Red Cabbage with sweet Honey Crisp Apples and Fennel.

Our Classic Cincinnati Station is incredibly popular, and it’s easy to see why!   

Build your own Coneys (known elsewhere as chili dogs,) with Cincinnati Chili, Local Franks, Klosterman Buns, Cheese, Mustard and Onions and served with Kentucky-Style Green Beans and Saratoga Chips.

The OTR menu options are very flexible and appropriate for a variety of events. From weddings to corporate dinners or events, to rehearsal dinners, to late night snacks, we are happy to help you plan to include this specialized local fare in your next event with us.
