I highly recommend it as a dining destination!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day Lunch!We had 11:30 reservations on Mother's Day. Our experience was fantastic! Our kids live in Indy and this was their first time going so I asked for a table upstairs by the window and that's where we were seated...great table with a beautiful view! Our server, Bennett, was the best! We were not rushed and he was very friendly, knowledgeable and efficient! We were pleased with the appetizers, drinks and meals and can't wait to return.

My family enjoyed the food and we all loved sampling the flights of beer. We will be back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat before or after game!My husband and I ate here for a change before a show at the Aronoff. It is a short walk from Fountain Square on a warm spring day, and we really enjoyed the area. I enjoyed the filet, which was served with cheddar mashed potatoes and green beans, and my husband also liked his prime rib. While eating, we watched the boats on the river and kids playing in the park. A really relaxing evening!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat pretzel breadI had the fish and fries and the fish and fries were soggy. I think the fish oil was not drained well before being placed on top of the fries. The fish was good but the batter was a little wet inside. Wine, service and companion's ribs and beer were all fine.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been there at leastWe have been there at least 5 times in the restaurant and party rooms and it has always been great!

Our family of 4 (with 2 drinks) cost 168.00!!!!!! Before tip!!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA Cincinnati experienceMoerlein has become my idea of a great Cincy gathering place. It's got good food, lots of beer and fantastic views of the riverfront. It's in the heart of the action for sports and riverfront events. With Smale Park, it makes a great summer hang-out. It's lively and on the noisy side. If this suits your mood and dinner companions, come and enjoy!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and serviceWe had a reservation for 5:15, and I was pleasantly surprised that our table was completely ready when we arrived. We had an infant with us and they set us up in an area that had plenty of room for the high chair. The food is a little pricey, but very delicious and completely worth it. Live band was playing outside and the noise level was perfect inside the restaurant.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLager House a GemThe Moerlein Lagar House is a great place to eat and drink. It is a well run resturant that makes incredible food and wonderful beer. The beer sets it apart from other good places. The service has always been good as well. Parking is very close and inside so do not let the rain so you down.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Notch StaffMenu is varied. Our choices were very delicious. We will go again.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for customersWe had a customer and his wife in from Texas. We were seated overlooking the river and bridge. Great view! Food was fantastic!

Thanks!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNice view, exceptional service!View was lovely, beer selection was unbelievable & service was exceptional! We really enjoyed the Soft Pretzels with Beer Cheese & Three Meat flatbread. Also ordered a Cheeseburger w/ fries & Chocolate Stout Cheesecake. Cheeseburger & cheesecake were good, but standard restaurant fare. Fries were covered with some type of garlic pesto. Probably would have been good had I been expecting it, but not mentioned on the menu. A table nearby ordered the Pork Shank, Hops Smoked Pork Belly with Apple Almond Bread Pudding & Caramel Streusel Cake for dessert. It all looked great!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very good experience.We had a very good experience. Everyone's food was delicious and came quickly. Service was attentive and friendly and the view could not be beat.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food at the Moerlein HouseThe food at the Moerlein House was very good. We started with the fried dill pickles. They were really good. The Spicy Corn Chowder was also good and the temperature was perfect--sometimes when the soup is too cold, it is terrible. I had a flatbread that was very good and my wife had the pork shank which she enjoyed. The beer was fantastic too. The prices were reasonable and the service was excellent. It was very loud in the restaurant, but it was a Saturday evening.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Food was excellent, theThe Food was excellent, the restaurant was very loud (hard to talk) and the service was slow- had to wait for order to be taken and to get refills4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMServer was fantastic.

The beer is outstanding!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMoverall a great experienceoverall a great experience - i had made reservations so we bypassed the 2 1/2hr wait and were seating immediately : ) we had the calamari and garlic shrimp for appetizers, both were delicious. i had the reuben for dinner and it was one of the best i've had... cant say the same for my husbands cuban, but it was okay. beers were cold and refreshing, service was quick and attentive, and we got a scoop of ice cream with a candle so my husband could make a wish on his birthday! will be back...4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRefreshing, Unique dining.Positives: Friendly staff, interesting menu, eclectic beer selection, great alcoholic refreshments. If you can score one if the window seats, that is a plus. In a nutshell: brand new, new concept, fresh and expertly managed.
Negative: parking, especially during a Reds game. $12 parking, and the closer spots were reserved for Reds VIP parking. These spots were mostly empty, and we ended up parking near the far end. At least we could walk inside until taking the stairs to the main entrance. It would be nice if a parking discount was offered by this restaurant.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTotally Awesome Experience!This was our first visit to Moerlein Lager House and we had heard only great things from friends that had already been there. Our waitress was awesome and so knowledgable about all the beers which I personally needed since I'm not a huge beer drinker. She guided me to the perfect choice. We made it a seafood night - spicy shrimp for appetizer and for dinner salmon and crab cakes - total YUM! Service was fast and friendly, and she gave us plenty of time to enjoy our experience. Definitely the place to go before the Reds game. We will definitely be back!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only thing I was disappointedThe only thing I was disappointed was I requested a window table since it was a special night with my family celebrating my birthday. I typed it on the reservation when I did this online. That is my only complaint. Everything else was good.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat serviceI've been to Moerlein Lager House 4 times now and have had a wonderful experience each time. I love that you take reservations and they run very close to on time. This past time I made reservations for a party of 6. My husband is deaf in one ear and I put this on the seating request. When I called back to confirm, they told me we had a booth upstairs which is on the perimeter and quieter then downstairs. When we got there, they tried to seat us at a large square table right outside the bar. When I explained about my husband, they could not have been nicer. We did have to wait for 20 minutes but they did indeed seat us at a booth upstairs. I appreciate they way it was handled and how nice they were about it. We will for sure be back4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently goodEveryone in our group of 6 received perfectly prepared dishes. We consistently bring out of towers here for the view, food quality and selection and excellent service. Drew was our server and he did a great job. He was just attentive enough. The new Squash Wellington vegetarian dish is delicious!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMKick back and have a beer or twoIn-between parking garage and stadium. Great river view.

Good date night or family dinner!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPlease yell, I can't hear you!It's not the place to go to have a conversation with the person across the table from you. Very loud. That said, the beer, food, and service were all excellent.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, even better service.The Lager house had the feel of an upscale downtown dining experience without the hefty price tag. Our server Billy was great! He took the time to lay out the options to us and provided great insight on some of the more popular beer and food choices.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to eat!

The prime rib with roasted potatoes was one of the best meals I have eaten in Cincinnati. Not surprisingly the draft beer was better than the bottle version. My small complaint is that although the parking was convenient it cost me $5.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for Easter Brunch.We went for Easter Brunch. The food was well prepared with a nice variety.

The server was friendly and able to answer questions. The spicy garlic appetizer was a must. We also enjoyed fish main dishes and a pizza with a very light crunchy thin crust. Beer menu was not on our table when we ordered drinks, and I may have been more adventurous if I had seen it before I had already ordered the Moerlein OTR. Moerlein OTR is a tasty Cincinnati microbrew staple, but the beer selection here is amazing, so will try something new if I return.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time!The food was wonderful and was a nice portion size. The restaurant is nicely decorated and has a large open floor plan (which some may consider "noisy" but it didn't bother us). The view is wonderful and the service was great. We will definitely be repeat customers!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was out third time inThis was out third time in to entertain out of town quests and it never fails to exceed expectations.

It was very warm to the point of sweating until my shirt was wet. The french fries were greasy and not crisp. the hamburger was very good and the soft pretzels and cheese were outstanding.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
