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 atmosphere”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Situated between ballpark and stadium. Atmosphere was impressive. Large beer selection and full bar available. Pretzel appetizer was delicious but pork chop was tough. Manager came out and offered something different but pretzel was filling. I appreciated the attempt to make it right.

“Great view of the river, and all the excitement of the ballpark.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Enjoyed the view and the atmosphere - nice if there's a game or not. The food is reasonable and above average. I had the soup and brats for lunch - it was very good, the sausages are from a local vendor. My friend had a short rib grilled cheese - he said it was wonderful. It looked wonderful. Excellent beer selection, friendly service. Easy access to parking garage - not sure about a game day? I would recommend - enjoy!

“Loved this place!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went here then night before a game at the Great American Ballpark, we called ahead and made reservations, 12of us at one time ,right before the game. We got seated right away, great server, great service, after ordering the manager came over to the table and told us that they don't normally take reservations the nights before the game, the Resturant is practically right beside the stadium,, but he stayed and talked with is probably 10 minutes, which he was great also ! Loved the food, it was awesome , the portions were huge, and absolutely loved this place!

“Great Atmosphere & Beer, but Basic Pub Food”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

Went there for a business dinner, and it was getting crowded. They have an excellent beer selection, and the appetizers were good. However, the main food was fair. My pork chop was tough, and those getting beef were thankful they ordered medium, since it looked very red to me, and I like it on the medium rare side. Will go again, but will be more careful on entree selection. If all you want is beer and appetizers, this place is great and right near the stadiums and Ohio River.
