A word from 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.

Diner Reviews
  • "We had a party of 10 for Easter dinner. Service was outstanding and the food was Excellent. I would recommend Christian Morlein house!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Everything was absolutely great about our dining experience - the food, the view, the atmosphere, the wait staff, etc. However, we went here on Easter Sunday specifically because they advertised a buffet here on OpenTable. Upon being seated, we discovered that they did not have a buffet this year, despite it still being advertised on OpenTable. "

  • "Service is not bad but could certainly improve. This is a very nice place to enjoy a beer outside."

  • "We had lunch before the Reds business day special on April 16. It's a great place to get a tasty nutritious lunch (instead of ballpark food) with a great beer before walking across the street for the start of the game. Our lunch was delivered 5 minutes after we ordered, allowing us a relaxing lunch with plenty of time to get to our seats for the first pitch! An altogether pleasant dining experience."

  • "We were disappointed with the portion size with the menu price. it seemed to me that they got smaller. The food was average as far as the sandwiches go. My daughter got the filet which was excellent."

  • "We went right after a Reds game and the energy level was high (even though the Reds lost). The service at the bar was terrible. The bartender was incredibly rude and would not refill water unless you were ordering beer with it. I could have done without her attitude. However, once we were seated our server, Mindy, was great. She was friendly, knew the menu and was a lot of fun. The food was pretty good too."

  • "We are new settlers to the Cincy area and we hosted a good out-of-town friend for her first Cincy dinner experience. The Lager House is a great restaurant for a casual and fun evening. Incredible view of Northern Kentucky river front. The food is good and the beer is fun; both are not outstanding. The evening is an excellent value and we had an excellent time. We left with 2 growlers of beer. Service was excellent. We look forward to our next dinner at the lager house, hopefully outside on their very nice patio."

  • "My wife and I visited the restaurant for our one year anniversary. We wanted to go somewhere that wasn't to expensive but still a fun night out. Let me tell you, not only are the prices extremely fair, the food tasted as if I was at a 5 star restaurant. The service was excellent as my drink was refilled numerous times before it ever got low. The reds game had let out before we got there which just helped set the mood. Fun, energetic atmosphere but yet fine dining all together."

  • "My boyfriend and I decided to eat here because it was new for both of us. We'd both had the beer at various festivals, but never the food. This was by far the best date he and I have been on in 3 1/2 years! Our server was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations. The atmosphere was perfect and food was exquisite! We will definitely be suggesting Moerlein Lager House to our friends and we will be returning! Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience!"

  • "The salmon that I had last Saturday was one of the best seafood presentations I have ever had. Coming from New England, that should tell you it was good compared to a lot of other possibilities. The fish was done to perfection and the accompaniment completed the excellence."

  • "Unfortunately our Anniversary happened to fall the weekend before St Patricks Day. Two disappointments right out of the gate, our table was not ready when we arrived and the first floor womens restroom was as hot as an oven. Wish the drink menu actually listed what the restaurant has, I hate to play twenty questions with the server. On the other hand the food was decent and the server was attentive."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Have eaten here several times, the food has always been excellent and the view is spectacular, especially at sunset. The service is good but you generally have to wait longer than they tell you to be seated, so give yourself plenty of time if you need to get somewhere else afterward."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "The restaurant was noisier than ideal for conversation but the food was awesome. Creative, tasty sandwiches & sides; excellent selection of craft beers; AND great desserts. The selections of all satisfied a diversity of palates."

  • "I surprised my boyfriend with a weekend in Cincy for his birthday. Friends met us for dinner at Moerlein and we had a fantastic time. It was a packed Saturday night, but nothing suffered as a consequence. We were sat at a fantastic table overlooking the water. Service was excellent, food was great and we left knowing we would be back!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Over all the Moerlein House was great. Although, my reservation was for 5:45 pm and we did not get seated until 6:15. I was very disapointed when you have a reservation and get seated 30 minutes later. We were going to an event that started at 7:30 and we had to rush through dinner. Our server was great than new we were attending a concert and got our order in right away."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "I made reservations for 7 on a busy night of a concert. When we showed up late for the scheduled reservation, they took it in stride. They looked up our reservation only to find out I had booked it on the wrong night! I thought I was gonna die! The hostess made a phone call and we were seated immediately!!!! The staff was very helpful and friendly. Plus I believe we ended up with the best table in the house!! The view was amazing!!! Thank you!!!!!"

  • "I made reservations on line which was very easy to do. I had requested a table by the window and that is just what we had. Thank you for that wonderful table and service. We love the restaurant and will most definitely be back !"

  • "Had such a great time. Excellent food, service, atmosphere, & view!! My husband and I ordered a beer flight to try out the local brews as well and it was fantastic. We will certainly be back! :) I do highly recommend making reservations though because there was a 2hr wait when we went on Sat night but with our reservation, they sat us almost immediately which was impressive."

  • "Met another couple from out of town and had a wonderful evening. Sunday was quiet with a modest crowd at 7 pm. The mussels, pork shank and flat bread were wonderful. What a relaxing view."

  • "I loved that we walked right in and were seated right away. The server was amazing, we never needed to wait for her to come back. If we needed more to drink she brought it before we could ask for it. The food was amazing! Even though my filet mignon was a little over cooked it still tasted great and my husband said the salmon was the best he ever had. I'm not a beer drinker but the selection was amazing! We had a great anniversary dinner and will be back soon!"
