Little Foodies: Troll Pub

Fall is here, which means bring on all the hearty, filling food. Troll Pub is just that — a warm, inviting brick-exposed gastropub with a yummy menu of pot roast poutine, Philly cheesesteaks, ruebens, Kentucky Hot Brown and all the kid basics. Kids will especially love the silly giant trolls that welcome you into Troll Pub at the Wheelhouse.

Part of the Oregon District in downtown Dayton, Troll Pub is located in the original Wuesthoff & Getz Factory. The gorgeous features inside the building reflect that of 1868 when the factory was built. Tall red brick walls, dark wooden rafters and rustic wood accents throughout provide a cozy lunch or dinner. In 2017, Troll Pub at the Wheelhouse made its debut with repurposed wood table tops taken from the ceiling and custom chandeliers made of old wagon wheels.

The menu has a little bit of everything, making it a perfect spot for the entire family. Kids will love the troll-themed menu of cheeseburgers, grilled cheese, chicken tenders, wings and pasta. For parents, Louie the Troll’s Signature Beer Cheese with Shiner Bock and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a must, whether on top of loaded fries or with warm soft pretzel sticks. Chicken wings, burgers, salads, chili, and a wide variety of sandwiches like fried chicken and waffle, fleur de lis dip, fried fish, buffalo chicken and more fill the rest of the menu.


For adults who may want to make a solo trip to Troll Pub, fun treats like boozy cheesecake and hard root beer floats are one-of-a-kind. Troll’s Drunken Cheesecake is served with a shot of Mellow Corn Bourbon or skip the liquor and divulge in a huge Mokah Stout Brownie served warm with chocolate ganache and vanilla ice cream. With a beautiful outdoor patio at the restored factory, Troll Pub is a fun, delicious place to celebrate fall with family and friends.

Troll Pub is located at 216 Wayne Ave., Dayton
