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!

The building this is in is awesome! Beautiful and old. Our food was great and the portion sizes are pretty large. I recommend not coming on a Sunday as they were out of a lot of food due to their trucks not coming until Mondays. But what we ate was delicious.

Five of us attended Sunday Brunch with each ordering something different. Everyone was satisfied with their choice. I also ordered my favorite Cauliflower wings and everyone raved. Meals were served promptly. Our server was new and struggled with even the simplest of questions and seemed a little frazzled but I'm sure he'll get more familiar with the menu and items soon. He was friendly and polite. All in all a good to great experience once again with all in the party agreeing that they will return sometime soon.

We didn't even know that last call had already been called until the waitress came back to the table and told us we could no longer order in a beer or alcoholic beverages and we had really just gotten there. The waitress gave us the vibe that she really could care less if she was taken care of our table or not we waited for our Waters we waited for refills just not a really good experience and the people we brought in were from Washington and Arizona seeking a place to start a business in our community.

Reservations honored; seated quickly; server mostly attentive. Rewards program is good. Good food choices. Very limited wine list. Beer list is adequate, but long on IPA, fruity, and specialty beers, very short on lagers and pilsners on tap. Plenty of the usual national brands in bottles. Server did forget to bring things requested or routine to us, and to people sitting next to us. Server did not ask how, or if, we wanted the check split.

The restaurant is great and the service was amazing. The Brisket could have been better, and unexpectedly there was a bluegrass band right next to our table. I don't blame them for the band type, the musicians were very nice. I made a reservation 2 days in advance and we got the table no problem. It was near the windows on the restaurant side and it was a pretty view. They even left a rose at the table by special request which was very sweet. ❤

I love this place. The father's day special was really why we came this time.. The food overall was great, however the eggs were almost not edible due to being seriously over cooked and dried out..


One a few times have we had issues with food.. definitely going to keep coming back..!!

My husband and I visited twice this week. One for brunch and came back for a dinner date for Father’s Day. Brunch was amazing. The bretzel so good. Ultimate Bloody Mary, must have. PIG WINGS TO DIE FOR! Dinner, well that’s a different story. Waitress was new and inexperienced. Food was wrong from the appetizer on. We ordered the Father’s Day special pasta, sauce so tasty, noodles near raw. When addressed to the manager, we were treated like we had done something wrong. The experience from brunch to dinner was night and day. I love the pig wings but am not super thrilled to go back.

Overall an outstanding experience. Great food, atmosphere and service. Even though we made reservations, upon arrival the greeters seemed confused and we had a short wait at a different table than requested. No big deal, we will definitely return!!

The food was amazing. We ordered two appetizers, the pretzel and beer cheese and the homemade potato chips with beer cheese. We then ordered entrées which were so delicious. We had two of the pulled pork platters, a hamburger, and the special Bacon lettuce tomato fried green tomato sandwich. Everything was delicious the wait staff was wonderful. Like most restaurants they are running short staffed because of the lack of availability of workers and yet they did an amazing job and were very attentive. The food came out quick it was hot it was delicious we had a wonderful evening. We can’t wait to go back for brunch and happy hour. If you’re in Mount Vernon stop in for a great meal.

My family (My wife, daughter, son and my son's girlfriend) went to Stein's for dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. The service was outstanding with one glitch. One Alcohol based desert drink took quite a while to get to our table. Other than that everything was superior. We had a great time and the food was very good.

Although our other visits have been lovely, this time around, we found ourselves seated for more than 90 minutes prior to our dinner and appetizer arriving. Some of our meals had the incorrect sides, and some items were not at the appropriate temperature. It just wasn't what we were accustomed to, nor what we expected. It will be a while, but we'll eventually be back, as we love the menu... I was sorry to have our entire extended family (party of 8) waiting for so long...

As always a very enjoyable time!! I had the Cobb salad and my husband had the walleye. The salad was delicious, but we both thought the walleye was good not great. Great service, very fun watching the Preakness at the bar, super friendly servers and friendly guests, great vibe!!!

A nice modern brewpub atmosphere but the food options and pricing is high when the quality of the food seems more like a mid-level chain restaurant. All in all the different elements add up to a fair but mediocre experience
