It was a lively, fun atmosphere with great beer selection, good food & atmosphere. First floor has park view and of the Roebling bridge lit up at night. The upstairs is the restaurant overlooking the river but with our party... More

Had a few snacks and beer. Good location to the riverfront and parking. My daughter stated that she had the beef shank and it was the best meal she's had in a long time!! Wish I would have bought a t-shirt.

Great location, next to Red's stadium and a view over looking the bridge. Variety beer selection and food is always good. Parking is difficult so highly recommend Uber or a taxi.

Moerlein is the one of the few places in Cincinnati with a great view on the bridge and the Ohio river. It has a pretty good menu, very nice appetizers and of cause beer. The price point is not surer high as well, so everyone could get in and enjoy it

It's all about the location with Moerlein's! The beer and wine are good but the food is only average, it's not bad but not outstanding! it is all about the location, great views of the Ohio river.

We had a co-workers retirement party here a few years ago. They have a room back in the corner with a great view that as long as you order food you get the room for free. The food was awesome and of course the craft beer. They also were able to set up a screen and projection for pictures. I... More

This place is great. Had the board of meat and cheese and soft pretzels for an appetizer. I suggest the pork belly. Also had the filet minion. All were just great. Also, their beer selection was awesome. Any type of beer you want. All top notch. This will be a regular stop any time I stay in Cincinnati.

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.
