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.

“Fantastic Service, Great Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

My friend and I went on a busy saturday night and there was a 45 minute wait, so we found seats at the upstairs bar. The bartenders all worked together as a team, and were incredibly friendly, knowledgeable about the beer, and generally just really great! They didn't bother us, but didn't ignore us. They even had poured a beer for a table by accident and ended up giving it to us on the house. We ordered the Caprese flatbread, which was a great price, large, and very good. We also got the Parmasean Garlic Fries which were FANTASTIC...i'm craving them right now. They were served with Ketchup and two different sauces, and we got the beer cheese to go along with them. I highly recommend the fries. We will definitely return.

“Group Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Seven couples had a great time. The food was good but not exceptional. It is definitely a beer lovers place to dine. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Biggest disappointment was the sweet potatoe chips-totally bland.

“View, drinks and history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

For great view and romantic ambiance - sit upstairs. If there is a wait, sit at the bar up there - it's nice too and different from the main floor. The main floor is like a loud sports bar and doesn't have the view. History is great, loved the wall murals and we bought souvenirs. The beer was good, and the signature drinks were great. We didn't really ear here - just ate french fries which were good. There were several bartenders sharing the load - and 3 out of 4 were great.

“Good food and good beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

The food was very good--and so was the beer selection. The view of the water is great. Location right next to the baseball stadium would be great before or after baseball games (though I assume it would be very crowded before/after baseball games)
