Creole / Cajun / Southern
Our vision combines New Orleans inspired recipes with handpicked top-notch local ingredients. We are Cincinnati's only New Orleans inspired gastro pub and we are passionate about staying true to those roots. Our mid-19th century building beckons our guests to come in for one of 18 all craft beers and wine on draft, a house made craft cocktail or one of our lovely small production wines. However, the food is the star at BrewRiver.

Our outdoor patio is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a drink and an amazing meal! You may be lucky enough to wander in on a night where a blues, folk or jazz musician is playing! Our goal is to give you a little bit of The Big Easy right here in The Queen City! We hope you will come join us and Laissez les bon temps roulez!

    Lovely ambiance - slightly upscale but a little quirky, just like NOLA. Fun cocktails, good food, good music.

    Food as always tasty and full of great flavors. Expect to enjoy a bit of wait for the food as it is prepped home made style for every meal ordered. We had brunch here for the 2nd time and highly recommend the Chicken with waffle!

    The food and service were outstanding. We ordered fried green tomatoes, alligator bites, shrimp and grits (non-traditional recipe), and chicken fingers. Everything was delicious. The fried green tomatoes were scrumptious!! Our server M was pleasant and friendly. We are already planning our return.

    From the moment we were greeted at the door until we walked out happy, it was a great experience. Chef here is tops. Service friendly and impeccable. Best fish and chips in town. They use locally-sourced meats and ingredients - salads flavorful and NOLA dishes authentic. Did I mention the bananas foster bread pudding and the thick dark chocolate beer brownie for dessert? Oh yeah!

    Overall good. main complaint is that buttermilk crispy chicken dinner is tenders...which is fine for the fried chicken basket but... it's weird. tasted fine but bone-in chicken please and thanks. BEST thing I've had twice now is the Alligator and waffle. DUHLICIOUS! Gator may be some of the best preparation I've ever had. Gumbo poutine delish, cocktails delish, Mussels delish! Didnt care for either pasta dish...the mac and cheese or the pasta Monica, but otherwise good

    Great food! They a little of everything to meet everyone’s requirements. I do think we were forgotten about a few times only because we were in the back room by ourselves. The server was friendly and we still enjoyed our time!
