The heritage of Cincinnati's storied brewing history comes alive along the banks of the Ohio River at this world-class restaurant and brewery. Prominently situated in the dynamic Smale Riverfront Park, the Moerlein Lager House offers a guest experience unlike any other—a working microbrewery producing a full line of Moerlein craft brews, and delectable fare featuring grain spent breads, hand-carved sandwiches, and smoked rotisserie meats… foods reminiscent of those served in the city’s celebrated 19th century beer gardens.

Always a great meal, and what a view!

The Moerlein Lager House continues to be a great place to visit with friends, family or for business. Great menu with delicious items like pretzels and beer cheese, build your own cheese and meat tray, short-rib grilled cheese, beer can chicken, etc. You really can't go wrong. And what a view... read more

I have eaten here during the week with business people several times and found the food to be good and the service to be efficient. It's easy to walk there from my office at 3rd and Walnut.

I surprised my husband with tickets to a Cincinnati Reds game. While there, we were walking around checking out the stadium and my husband like to get “locals” opinions of where to eat. We had not eaten lunch and it was around 3 so my husband asked a police officer working the game here he would go. He said his... More

Really captures traditional German fare. True authentic German dishes on the menu with modern twists. Beer tasted great. Food tasted good. Location was nice. Beautifully designed restaurant with all the wood decor - a very modern open space. Service was slightly slow.

My husband and I went here for lunch. The prices were high. The food was nothing to write home about. As another person has commented, if you don't keep drinking service lags.

If you are headed to a Cincinnati Reds' game, consider dining pre- or post-game at the Moerline Lager House. Situated directly across from the Great American Ball Park and facing the Ohio River, this is a great place for groups, small or large, to frequent. Good food, good atmosphere, good views, good people! While burgers and brats are standard fare,... More

Don't let the name of this restaurant make you think burgers and fries. There is so much more on this menu. I ordered the Squash Wellington and it was absolutely out of this world delicious. The ingredients really complimented one another. Butternut squash, mushroom duxelle wrapped in a filo pastry. The shaved Brussels sprouts that it is served over with... More

Food was so, so. Prices seemed to be high. My burger was $11 and my wife's meatloaf was $ 17. Not real drinker, so waiter lost interest in our table. Really push the beer at this place. Inside was full, so we had to do first come seating in a covered patio area. Very noisy. Hard to talk and understand... More
