Great Beer
Not since 1878 (ish) was beer brewing for public consumption in Mount Vernon, OH. Stein Brewing Co. has now opened its doors with a full service restaurant and brewery. The kitchen is led by award winning Chef Erin Stevens whom formerly was the Head Chef for Mapfre Stadium (Columbus Crew) and Fed Ex Field (Washington Redskins). She has brought her talent and flair to Mount Vernon to change the landscape of hospitality along with General Manager Robert Lucente. Stein Brewing Company has a 102 seat restaurant section (full service restaurant) as well in the same building a 55 seat Brew Pub (Walk In/First Come-Open Seating) where all our local beers are brewed. We have at any time from 8-12 locally brewed beers and have the food to match the most unique dining experience in all of Knox county. Look forward to meeting you. Cheers!

Food was good. Service was so-do. There was an issue with my sides and no one ever came back with a resolution. My skillet beans were barely warm by the time our food came out. I’d still go back again though.

We love coming to Stein Brewing Company and met friends from out of town there Wednesday night. Great beer, fantastic food, really good service. One glitch though, bothered me. I ordered a cheeseburger (which are outstanding) and when our food came, the waiter distributing the meals, handed me my sandwich, saying, “your ‘Impossible’ cheeseburger.” And I said, “Oh no - I had a real cheeseburger,” just as our “official” server stepped up to help. She said, “Oh that’s a cheeseburger.” Well, it wasn’t. I’ve had both. But because it was good tasting and we were with friends, I didn’t say any more until they came to clear our plates. Then, when the server asked if we enjoyed our meals, we said yes, but I said, “But that was NOT a real cheeseburger.” And she then said, “Yeah, it wasn’t.” I couldn’t believe it!! She said, “Do you want me to get you one?” ... after we were all but finished!!! She didn’t offer any discount or to remove it from the bill and (again, because we were entertaining friends). I didn’t ask for that. But very disappointed in a restaurant that has always been consistently excellent.

My husband and I went to the Sunday brunch and ordered the crab cake hollandaise. It was 2 crab cakes on a split English muffin with sunny side up eggs and delicious hollandaise sauce. They served it with cheesy potatoes which I personally didn't care for but my husband loved them. The server was great and they followed strict guidelines regarding the Covid crisis. We've decided to go back again in 2 weeks.

We have made SBC one of our regular restaurants. The only dish that I have not been impressed with was the Mac and cheese. Kinda bland. But that won’t keep us from going back.

Get some local craft beer, a flatbread pizza or a salad or soup. I'm not local, but I would return if I'm in the area again. The service was very good. They had signs to state that the table had been sanitized or not, and they cleaned them right away after people left. It looked like they have a good procedure for dealing with the pandemic.

We were the first to be seated when the restaurant opened and it took 55 minutes for us to get our food. Every other table that came after us and ordered after us got their meals first, including a table of 10-12 people. For context, there were 4 of us and we ordered a veggie burger, two waffle sandwiches and breakfast nachos. Waitress didn’t even apologize. Would not go back.

This was our anniversary date night - and couldn’t have been happier. While the restaurant was pretty full, everything was perfect and well timed. Staff is incredibly attentive and our food came out timely and hot. You can tell without a doubt that there is a true chef behind the food because it’s flavored so well. This is a must for anniversaries and nights out with friends. Highly recommend!

Late decision to make reservation at Stein Brewing Company and so glad we did. The food was excellent, it was not crowded, wait staff were very attentive and the music spot on. This place is worth the drive and definitely worth imbibing if you live in Knox County.

The service was great but the food was fair. We are repeat customers and loved the food before so we thought we would come back. Our main courses (original wings and smoked platter 2 meats with sides) were not very flavorful but the sides were wonderful (baked beans, sweet potato fries, mashed potatoes as well as the corn fritters. The atmosphere was wonderful as well as the pricing.

Made a reservation and was seated right on time. Felt they were very health and safety conscious, keeping tables clean and all employees wore masks. Food was very hot and the portions were generous. Both of us really enjoyed what we ordered, the hamburger and the smoked chicken.

Beautiful place with a funky modern industrial vibe....black and white. Food was very good, but a bit pricey. $17.99 for fish & chips is a little high. Actually, everything cost more than most similar brewpubs I've been to. Even the beer, which was nothing to get excited about, was $7 for a pint. Maybe they can charge $12 for a pretzel because local brewpubs are rare in the area. It was a pleasant experience overall---and the service was great.

I really like their food and the Ohio Blueberry beer! I don’t care for the jarred garlic they use in their mashed potatoes. I wish they would use fresh garlic! Otherwise I’ve like everything I’ve tried. I usually go once a month with my friends!

Had a great experience at Stein. A casual place to grab a good meal.

The only thing that needs to be fixed is the phone line. Needed to call the restaurant but could not get in touch because the phone wasn’t working.

Responded on February 24, 2020

Sorry about the phone line there was a construction issue that took out our line and we are still trying to get it fixed. Trust me it is a pain on our end and working closely with Spectrum to get it live again. My apologies on that front as we are working very hard to get it back live. Very glad to hear you had a great meal and hope you swing back by soon.
