This is the third time I have had dinner at this restaurant. Each time with a group of 8 to 12 people and each time had a great experience. Service is always spot on. Food is always really good and served with great drinks and beer. Views from the dinning room is excellent and unique. I will be back

Had dinner before the Maroon 5 concert. Called about 5, and they weren't on a wait. By 6, it was JAM-PACKED. This is not the fault of the restaurant, but it was a little awkward. The reason is that they opened the enclosed beer-garden, as well as both bars (upstairs and downstairs) for first-come-first-served seating. So there was always a... More

My husband and I visited Moerlein for lunch on a Friday afternoon. It was a great spot for bar type food and a great view. My husband enjoy a couple of beers while I sipped on wine. It's a nice relaxed atmosphere. I recommend for lunch and dinner as it has a great view and very good food and drink... More

On Saturday, my husband and I went to a birthday party at the Moerlein Lager House. A large room accommodating the 40 or so party goers was on the 2nd floor facing the Great American Ball Park. Two of the four walls were almost completely filled with glass windows which made the room feel so much more spacious. A buffet... More

Finally a restaurant with decent veggie options that also serves beer! There are two main course dishes one features squash in a pastry shell and the other is a wonderful mushroom pasta - both are delicious! Nice craft beer selection but they were out of quite a few in cans...but hey it was the weekend. Nice views of the river... More

Wanted to try a downtown restaurant on our way through Ohio. Views of the river and stadiums were fantastic. Our server was very attentive. Unfortunately, both of our chicken dishes were just okay.

We've been to this place numerous times on our visits to Cincinnati. My wife is actually less thrilled about the food and does not drink beer, but to me, the food is quite good, and the beers are good, too - not the best craft brews out there, but credible, and I do have to recommend the Emancipator Bock to...

The beer was fantastic excellent, however the food was marginal. Quality appeared to be a good cut of meat, I have the fillet mignon but it was over cooked for my medium rare request. Yet the atmosphere is a little beer hall noisy so if you're planning a quiet business meeting this is not the spot. But it is a... More

Pork nachos and beers were great. Atmosphere and view are awesome. Service was amazing. Would not recommend the buffalo chicken flatbread. Very bland.

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.
