Brewery
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!

Such a neat place to eat! I am not a fan of the side salad . . .drenched in dressing and very small for $6.99. The pulled chicken is delicious! Love the sweet potato waffle fries. Great place to bring out of town guest and to experience it!

We ate Sunday brunch there. Food was pretty good for Mt. Vernon. The mimosas we're average at best. They use cheap orange juice that gives it a funny after taste. The short ribs are pretty good.

We waited a very long time for drinks, the waitress forgot our drinks a few times, once a person from our dinner got his own drink due to asking three times. The food wasn’t as good as the many times before, the pig wings were very dry, the prices have increased and the value has went down. The ribs were the best, have eaten them about 5-6 times at different visits, now you can not order them without Mac and cheese which was disgusting and it’s much higher in price, it was a great value to order ribs and now it’s not worth the 22$. I would probably choose to go elsewhere with the changes made. The first 5-6 visits I had were fantastic, the last 2 have not been.

Absolutely delicious food- there were four of us and we all ordered different entrees- they were all great tasting- nice there I was a wide range of food items to pick and so reasonably priced- service was the best ever had- and loved the building S decor. parking was plentiful. It was nice to see it packed so we know others love this place too. We will be back- it’s worth the drive from Columbus- oh yes and the craft beers were tops in my book- we all really liked our choice beers.

First visit and will surely be back. All four people in my party ordered something different and we were all very pleased with our food. There was slight confusion with two different servers working our table but nothing upsetting. It was wonderful to be able to eat and then go upstairs for a show. SBC is exactly what this area needed!!

We have dined at the Stein at least 6 times now. One time we did the steak dinner special, its was great. Another trip, 3 out 4 of us tried the smoked meatloaf. Never again. The meatloaf was a patty on bread, not worth the price. One trip myself, tried the pig wings, they were great. Our most recent trip, myself and wife did the pig wings, WHAT HAPPENED. They were dry and barely any sauce on them. They were like the last batch from the beginning of the day, dried out. We both are starting to lose interest in the Stein. Like the blueberry beer. Maybe try the steak dinner again, but no meatloaf and no more pig wings.. Service is the best part, and the beer.

We traveled from Columbus area to try this place. We were seated fairly soon after we arrived even though we were early for our reservation. While that was nice, we were seated in a crowded bar area instead of the regular dining area. Because of this and the fact that our waitress was busy with tables elsewhere our service could have been better. We asked for ketchup and she forgot. We finally got another waitress to bring us some. Then I had to go to the bar to get a refill on water as our waitress didn’t return until time for our bill. She was clearly busy but we didn’t feel like we were forgotten most of the night. The food however was excellent and the beer was also enjoyable. Thai made up for the service for the most part. We would probably return but not on a Friday night.

The food was much better this time around. They're definitely working out the kinks. However, I asked for the coleslaw on the side of my sandwich and no mustard, but it came both on it. I also had an empty water glass throughout most of our meal.

It was the first time for my husband and I, Trevor was an awesome waiter very friendly. The food was even better! We started our meal with the biggest pretzel we have ever seen! And the beer cheese was to die for! We also ordered the cheese curd, deep fried pickles and jalapeños, which were very good! My husband ordered the beer cheese soup, smoked chicken with the sides of Mac and cheese, smoked baked beans with corn bread. I had the beer cheese soup. Everything was delicious!! We could not order any dessert we were stuffed!! We took enough food home for another meal!

I loved the experience of dining at the Stein Brewing Company, and am so excited that we have fun new places like this in town. I would definitely come back and tell friends about it. Our service was wonderful, and the food was really good. My only complaint is that the table we were seated at was really small, so it was hard for two main courses and an appetizer had a hard time fitting. We had to put our water glasses on the window sill next to us. Would return and hope for a bigger table. :)

The Valentine Day was amazing!!! Everyone loved their food and we thought the steak was so tender, it melted in your mouth. Our server, Lisa, was great and we definitely will make this a regular place to go. The beer was very good and we had samples and loved every one we tried. It was hard to decide which one to order. They seem to have a lot of specials during the week and look forward to going back.

We will give this restaurant another chance. It is new and working out the bugs. The portion sizes for price do not match. This is pub food and not fine dinning. They had the best meatloaf but the portion was smaller than the bread that came with it. Sides were also lacking. Food was good just not enough for price.

We enjoyed dinner—easy to hear each other in the restaurant, great atmosphere. Great service, but did not receive the correct sides initially. Received the correct sides after some time, but did not care for the sides—Mac and cheese was bland and coleslaw has horseradish (just not my taste). But...the BBQ jackfruit on a plantain bun—-AMAZING! Chocolate chip cookie dessert is heavenly!!

We went on a Thursday evening so dining wasn’t crowded and noise was average. Food was a cut above bar food. Had a ‘flight’ as well as dinner. A rare occurrence when we both agreed on the same draft as our favorite! Service person (Amber) was attentive and helpful. We headed across the street for a nightcap afterwards. We will definitely go back.

Our first time there. Our service was off some. Not from the morning wait staff but from the kitchen and bar. We ordered an appetizer and got it after our meal. We ordered drinks before we got our meal but we’re halfway through our meal before we got our drinks. Everything else was great.

I would not describe the noise level as energetic. It was simply too loud. Given the floors and walls, it might be wise to consider installing some noise dampeners.
