Food and service were both excellent! Our server made great suggestions and the kids both said it was the best food they had ever eaten.

The food was good as well as the service. Some of the patrons were obnoxious which impacted the dining experience. Not sure all of the COVID distancing was in place.

Reservations are definitely recommended. We were seated right away but it took them forever to take our orders. The food was good. Appetizers such as cauliflower wings were great.

We had reservations for 10 people and we got seated early. The food is amazing and the service was fantastic. They were extremely busy but I never felt a delay in service at all. The view is worth it too. I would highly recommend to anyone!

Variety of food choices and all that we had were excellent! Extensive beer list. Service was top-notch. Ask for a table near the windows with a view of the river.

Moerlein is our go to and NEVER disappoints! We came twice on Valentine’s Day (brunch just me and my husband; then dinner with friends that have never been) both times were outstanding! The food the service were amazing! We were so happy that we are bringing our twins to celebrate their 15th birthday in a few weeks! If you have never tried them you won’t be disappointed! We love the beer, the food, the service and the views! Day or night you won’t be disappointed! Love love love!

It’s a nice place. I would say the food is decent for such a large menu. We came there for brunch and it was their regular lunch menu with some brunch-items thrown in. The sandwiches were very good. Our server was pleasant and the food came out in a timely manner. I would return but it’s a very casual sports-bar vibe. The restaurant looks very cool inside and the menu is a step-up from a sport’s bar though.

From the Spicy Garlic Shrimp appetizer to the Fish & Chips dinner, the food was great. Always enjoy trying a new drink from a large beer list.

It was our anniversary, which I stated on the reservation. Hostess told us we had to sit at a high top in the bar area which was extremely loud. Our server was one of the worst I’ve had, she barely stopped by our table. We had to ask other servers for things like salt/pepper and to take our used dishes away. There was no free dessert offered like normal when we go here for our anniversary.
