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.

“Excellent food and service!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

We had a group of 10 visit Moerlein Lager House last week for lunch. It would have been fun to have been there at night since the restaurant overlooks the Ohio River and the view is amazing. The food was great, from the short rib grilled cheese sandwich to the fish tacos. And the onion rings were the best I have ever had. Service was outstanding -- quick and efficient even over a busy lunch hour. Highly recommend!

The only negative is with the acoustics there it is noisy. Other than that, wonderful place to go.

“Beautiful restaurant on the river.”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Next to the stadium and ballpark. Great place to grab a freshly brewed beer or a bite to eat before the game. We got flatbread but two people could easily share one. The pretzel.bread is to die for. Order a beer flight and taste four of their most.popular beers.

“Really cool place for beer lovers”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Neat brewery/restaurant right on the Ohio river! This place is great for beer lovers, they brew all different types of beer on sight. They also have some really good food. Try the BBQ stack sandwich.

“Go for the food and stay for the beer!!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

I went here for the first time expecting a wide assortment of beer and average food. I came away quite impressed with the food and the atmosphere was over the top.

I would recommend the Ale House Linguini which came with shrimp and just enough spice to give it a nice bite to it. They had a great assortment of tasty beers that also have a nice bite to it. The service was outstanding!!

Keep up the great work!!
