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.

I had a very peculiar situation during my most recent visit to the Moerlein Lager House. I had two relatives visiting from out of town. The four of us ordered at the same time, but one of my visitors' meal was served to her 25-30 minutes ahead of the other three of us. This was very awkward for all of us. When we asked the server about this, she stated that it was rung up separately by accident. No apology or anything.
On a positive note, our view of the waterfront was very scenic, my mett and cole slaw were tasty, and a family member enjoyed her brattwurst platter.

Our waiter Michael was great. He gave us plenty of time to decide on our dinner order. And make sure our drinks were properly made. We had a great time.

The food was average and the menu was misleading. Two of the dishes were much hotter (spicier) than as advertised and the meals were not enjoyable

It was wonderful as always. I’ve never had a bad experience. The steak was amazing along with the angry mac and cheese. One of my all time favorite restaurants.

the food was good but I didn't really like my squash wellington and it was hot in the room as more people came in.

Pork hock was amazing - Fish tacos were as well. A friend had the squash wellington - tasty, but not really my thing. Portion size is great !

Also had the pork belly poutine appetizer, its enough for a meal - Killer !

Went here for an early Valentine's Date. The menu had changed since the last time I visited and has a larger variety of spicy items that I couldn't eat due to dietary restrictions. The chicken salad I ordered was delicious and my husband's fish tacos looked amazing as well. Will definitely return again in the future.

Very noisy in the restaurant....so much so that it was hard to converse at our table.
