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!

We had been wanting to try Stein Brewing for quite some time and were excited to make our reservation and go there prior to an event at The Woodward Opera House (which is awesome, by the way!). It's a cool place with an upbeat vibe. The menu is made up of primarily smoked options so if you don't care for smoked foods, it really isn't the place for you. I had my heart set on the walleye entree, and was told they were out of that dish (6:45 reservation on a Saturday evening). So, I scanned the rest of the menu and decided on the alfredo pasta with grilled chicken. My husband ordered the same. Our dinners arrived in a timely fashion (although two pieces of garlic toast delivered right before we finished our meals). To our disappointment, the alfredo sauce was very thin and lacked flavor. I will say the chicken was tasty, although there was not much of it - less than a small chicken breast. We love to support local businesses and will likely try Stein Brewing again in the future, by which time I hope they consider diversifying their menu to suit a broader range of tastes.

Everything was fantastic! Service was a little slow but they were very busy when we got there. I am so glad we reserved our table ahead of time. Also our request for a child friendly table (and space for a car seat) was fulfilled which made dinner so much easier.

Went for brunch. Everything at the table was enjoyed - little doughnuts, banana French toast, waffle sandwich, buffalo chicken sandwich and smoked burger. We will definitely go again to try the other menus.

Fathers Day the night before. Tried all of the beers and some interesting and good options. Blueberry kolsch and Hefeweizen excellent. Dinner was very nice. Cauliflower wings are amazing with the sauce. The mozzarella and bacon and smoked wings were excellent starters. Smoked burger and brisket highlight the excellence of the smoked meats.

Can’t wait to return and try some of the offerings. Welcome to Mount Vernon.

Service was excellent

Food was good as always however the menu has really changed since our last visit. We were a party of 10 (5 couples) and the waitress had our bills all messed up so if you are a large party check your bills! Also, 2 of the 3 steaks ordered did not come out correctly and one of them didn't come back until all of us were done eating. They did take his meal off and offered everyone one free beer to make up for it. We will go back bc we like the place.

I would give it 5 stars overall, however the service was slow and not as knowledgeable with beer brands and ipa’s offered. The food was great with varieties to choose from and a modern menu. There were a lot of people - maybe because there is a happy hour which is not always offered at our local restaurants. Everyone should order the large fresh-baked pretzel to go with their beer. The booths were spacious enough to accommodate our group of 6. Definitely will go back.

Had reservation but waited 15 mins for a table. After ordering food took about 30 mins. In general, food was lackluster and not worth the wait. I am disappointed because previous visits have been stellar, so I’ll try it again before giving up.

We had a very nice time. Waitress was very nice. Our reservation time got backed up. Very busy time with proms and Naz graduation, so understood, of course. Did not matter that much as we were going to the performance at the Woodward. Quite handily located when you are going there. I had the brisket, great flavor. Sweet potato fries were good. My husband liked his fries really well. They were the waffle fries.
I would go back again.

The pork chop and the steak we ordered tasted great. The garlic mashed potatoes were a little cold and clumped together like they had sat to long. The service was great and it seemed very clean. The beer is good! To me the lighting is so bright that it’s not a very private feeling setting. I would tone that down a bit. Overall we will go back!

Easy to secure reservation for a Sunday night dinner. Surprised it wasn’t more busy, but understand it’s a new place. Our party of 5 was seated right away in a spacious booth. Waitstaff was very friendly and happy to offer suggestions for appetizers. Don’t pass up the cauliflower wings-outstanding! Black bean burger is homemade and delicious; very thick too! Delicious gluten free bun available. We were visiting the area and will be sure to come again next time we’re in town!
