Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon.  Ask to be seat away from the kitchen, was seated by the south windows looking over the river, great view.   Had the spicy garlic shrimp to start off with - could have licked the plate! I had the lunch combo - french onion/mushroom soup and BLT salad.  My husband had the filet with... More

My wife and I visited on a weekend afternoon. The restaurant wasn't too busy considering Garth Brooks was playing later that evening which was nice. The server was nice, but it took much longer than it should have to place our order or get our drinks. In all fairness, there was a large group having a party and it seemed... More

My wife and I currently live in the Dayton area and came down to Cincy to get away for the weekend. We had always heard about Moerlein so we decided to try it out and it did not disappoint! Amazing food and awesome craft beer selection. I got the dry rub sirloin and she got the short ribs and neither... More

I enjoyed everything about this place. The staff was very friendly and helpful, quick to joke around. The selection of beers was nice and I like that they will let you sample any you aren't familiar with before you order a full glass. Try the poutines...fun stuff.

Right next to Great American Ballpark so it's perfect for before or after the game. As you checking in with hostess be sure to check out what's memorialized on the floor. Good selection of beer. Including Moerlein's best brewed. Big place, good views if window seated. Have always enjoyed going there.

We stopped in for a quick dinner before a show. We were from out of town, and I didn't even consider making reservations. They were extremely crowded and booked for the next couple hours per the host. I think he could tell I was at a loss of where to head to instead, and he managed to squeeze us in.... More

We popped in for a late lunch after an event and were surprised at the freshness of the food. I had a salad (cannot remember the name) that had grilled chicken on it, a boiled egg, pecans, etc., that was crazy fresh and tasty. But what tipped the scales for me were the onion rings. Thick rings of onion in... More

I always stop at Moerlein Lager House whenever I come to Cincinnati. The restaurant is beautiful with a excellent view of the river; and fun with a great bar atmosphere and patio spaces. I always enjoy the Moerlein Brews and as a vegetarian they always have a few dishes on the menu that are fantastic and filling.

While on the Baron's Brewery Tour we stopped at the Moerlein Lager House, and we like it very much. Very cool vibe underground, with games, a wide variety of tasty brews and plenty of friendly service. No brewery tour of Cincinnati is complete w/out a visit to the Moerlein Lager House.

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.
