Description: 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.

“Great Beer selection and Good Vegetarian Choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

This was a great lunch with my best friend on the River.
We had great seats out on the veranda overlooking the river and the bridge.
In addition to the view, the drinks were very good and the food was excellent.
The beer sample was 4 of the top brews of the day. Each was placed on the table on top of the description of each on the menu. I rated them 1 through 4.
The food was so good and plentiful that we couldn't eat it all and made it our lunch at home the next day.

“A great way to eat before the Reds Game”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We had a great experience here. The food and beer is top notch. We arrived to a 20 minute wait but we sat at the bar for about 10 minutes and then they seated us at the window.

“Good food good drink good view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We were in Cincinnati for a Reds game that ended up being rained out:(. We did a search for good restaurants and read a good review on Moerlein Lager. We took a trolley from our hotel in Covington and it was an easy ride and walk(in fact we walked back over the bridge when we were done. I made reservations on line because I wasn't sure how crowded they would be. Great on line reservation system. When we got there we went ahead and walked into the bar with open seating. The place is surrounded by glass overlooking both Cincinnati and Covington right on the ohio river. Our waiter was extremely friendly and helpful with beer and food suggestions. My friend and I had the beer can chicken melt sandwich which was delicious . My husband had the crab cakes and said they were fantastic and our other friend had the fish and chips which he said were good and big like what you would find in a seafood place. Lots of beer types... I would recommend asking for a sample before you choose. Lots of beer brewery history and the exact location of the 1st base of the old Reds ballpark which is where Pete Rise got his4000th hit.

“Fun brewery and pub near ballparks on river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Fun restaurant with dun indoor or outdoor seating overlooking the river and next door to the baseball stadium. Great food. Loved the fish tacos, Cuban and the calamari.

“Nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Atmosphere by the river is nice. Large restaurant with indoor/outdoor seating and beer garden area, which is like a covered patio. The seating on the second floor was much to crowded when full (we were in the beer garden, but took a walk upstairs). Service pretty good. Food was average. The veggie burger was truly the worst one Ive ever had, but I enjoyed the appetizers we shared. Very large bar menu. Server seemed very knowledgeable about menu and drinks.
