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!

It would have been more enjoyable if it had not felt like we were being forced out from the get go. We were in the restaurant for only 35 min from sitting to check. While it was nice to have food out quickly we were highly annoyed at the pressure from our waitress to hurry and leave. She also come to collect plates and took them while we were still eating. She did not ask if my partner was done with his meal, Just took his plate. Not a place I would go out of my way to eat at again.

This was our second time at SBC. The atmosphere is good, but the food was hit and miss. The pretzel appetizer was good, along with the house salad. However the brisket sandwich was tough. The Mac and cheese tho was very good.
The couple we went with had a bad experience the time before our visit, but they went along anyway. They had reached out to management about their bad experience and he sent them a coupon for a free burger. Or so they thought. It was actually a BOGO deal so not exactly as told to them. Kind of not classy to offer someone something free due to their bad experience, just to turn around and put restrictions on it. I mean come on, it’s a burger.
Not sure that we will get back

I would steer clear. I am sure there are better places to eat. We made reservations for 5 on a Sunday late afternoon for a family occasion.

We ordered wings. They were out. We ordered an appetizer sampler...they were out of all the ingredients. My daughter’s shredded chicken was disgusting...it was the consistency of rice pudding. I ordered the Honey crusted Walleye and it was over cooked and burnt on the bottom. At $20, I tried to eat it but it was super dry. I will say my husband and son’s brisket was really good.

We did not complain about anything while there and I don’t usually give reviews like this, but wanted to let folks know. I will also say the service was good. She kept our drinks topped off, was friendly, and attentive. Hopefully it was just a bad night in the kitchen.

Atmosphere was cool and our waitress was very nice.
Food took way too long to come out.
Our sweet potatoes fries were mostly burnt and hallow.
Chicken BBQ sandwich had a bunch of fat on the end which was gross, and the fries mozzarella bacon appetizer was horrible. Bacon was all fat and tasted like some sort of fake bacon. Hard pass. Will not return.

This was a great place! Fun atmosphere, great food, live music, nice & helpful staff. The tap room was full so we were seated in the dining room (all within COVID rules)!

I had the beer battered fish & chips. I always ask for malt vinegar because I never know how the tarter sauce might turn out. It turned out very good.
Served with fries and small corn fritter
bites. My nieces loved their chicken strips and grilled cheese. They ate just about everything and what they didn’t
eat, they wanted to take home. It was all yum!

The reservation was handled well. I shared at the time that it would have been helpful to know on the website or when reservation was made through Open Table that the main dining room was unavailable and we would be placed at a small table in the bar across the hall. The food selections were limited for St. Patrick's Day, but what we got - the short rib - was very good. Beer selections are excellent. The waitress left us several times in the middle of a sentence. The good thing is that when we marked a negative when paying the bill on the hand-held computer, the owner came right to our table and engaged in twenty minutes of relaxed, concerned discussion and explained, but did not excuse our concerns. We will go back. This is one of our favorite places. He gave each of us a growler of our choice of beer to take with us as a gesture of good will for the things we had concerns about. No one is perfect, but he handled it well.

Our waitress was great, but we had to eat in the tavern area which was noisy and a bit crowded. We don’t normally eat in the tavern and prefer the dining area especially when we are with other people.

I had the smoked meat platter and it was very good. The filet that my wife ordered was overcooked, but was replaced in good time. We also enjoyed a couple of craft brews. Overall it was a good experience.

At our reservation time of 6pm they were out of the Valentines specials that we come for. Need to be better prepared. Had to order off the menu and not really happy with that. My wife said her steak wasn't worth the price and was tough. Poor food and selection for the $116 we spent. Probably wont eat there again.
