Vegan Options Near Great American Ballpark


This is by no means an all-inclusive list. It’s just a couple of suggestions of places we found close to the park where you can meet up with friends or family to grab a bite to eat before or after the game.

Harmony Plant Fare | NYC Inspired Vegan Deli

1801 Race St UNIT 105, Cincinnati, OH 45202

Located just a mile and half north of the ballpark is Harmony Plant Fare. It’s a NYC Inspired Vegan Deli where you can pick vegan meats and cheeses along with some amazing looking sandwiches.

We’ve never been here ourselves, but they carry a 4.9 star rating with over a 100 reviews on Google. (You know how hard that is to do!?!)

There is also a couple other spots, Essen Kitchen and Herban Vegans, located about a block away from Harmony Plant Fare. Definitely an area worth checking out.

Yard House

95 E Freedom Way, Cincinnati, OH 45202

I know we’ll have some people scoff at the idea of including Yard House here and I get it. Yard House is not a local vegan restaurant. It’s a chain and they serve non-vegan items including meat.

However, they do have great vegan options including a few menu items using Gardein products. This Yard House location is also a block away from the stadium making it really convenient for a before or after game meet-up.

Finally, when trying to “choose” the restaurant with non-vegan friends or family, sometimes it’s just easier to suggest a spot that they’ll “feel comfortable with”. I know that’s not ideal, but it tends to work out well for us.
