Very reasonable prices for food and beer. Bar area is nice and separated from the regular seating. Great view out over the Ohio River and just across the street from Great American Ballpark. Good selection of food, but food is not amazing (jazzed up pub food essentially with a few more higher quality offerings).

Beautiful, enormous place with 2 bars in a great location next to the ball park. The river bank has developed into a very nice area of bars and restaraunts where it is located too. Everything I have had to eat is very good. Moerlein makes some pretty good beers, but they also have a solid selection of other breweries. If you are downtown, give it a try.

I frequent Moerlein Lager house for amazing beer as well as exceptional food. Upstairs is much more quiet and better for a romantic evening and downstairs is perfect for game days. Every time I go the service is above par and the wait staff is very knowledgeable about the entire menu.

I've been to the Moerlein Lager House several times and the atmosphere is excellent with a great view of the Ohio River, plenty of TVs for sports viewing.
The quality of beer and food are excellent. They have several home brews and guest taps in addition to several bottles from the best brewers around the world.
The service is again excellent, they allow you try any of the Moerlein brews before purchase.
The selection is of course mostly of the Moerlein brews, but the have a couple of guest taps and several bottles.
The food is top notch for a brew pub/restaurant.

If you ever come to Cincinnati this place is a destination. Put it on your to do list.

Enjoy!

A prime location in the banks. Ballpark across the street and river in view. When its baseball season this is a great place to grab some good beers before heading into Great American Ballpark. (It can get really crowded right before and right after a game.) Had dinner on the lower level overlooking the Ohio River on a more mild day and both experiences were good.

I have been about 5 times now. The food is good, but may be a touch pricey for what you get. The atmosphere is great. Cool building with great views. My service has always been quite good and the servers know what they are talking about when it comes to beer. They are patient, will answer questions, and are willing to go get you some samples to help you make a decision. Overall, this may not be the end-all, but it is a very fun, very nice place with good food and a good beer selection along with a knowledgable staff.

I've visited Moerlein Lager House about a dozen times since it opened in early 2012.

Great location on the edge of downtown Cincinnati, right across the street from Great American Ball Park (home of the Cincinnati Reds) and a few blocks from Paul Brown Stadium (home of the Cincinnati Bengals). Awesome views of the Ohio river!

Two level building with private party rooms for large groups, a patio area that is open to the outdoors in warm weather, and a bar on each level.

The main floor bar features primarily Moerlein beers on tap. The bar on the upper level features the "guest drafts" which I've seen range from everyday stuff like Fat Head's Head Hunter to limited stuff like Great Lakes Barrel Aged Blackout Stout. You can order any beer on the menu from either bar, but expect to wait a bit if you order a guest draft from upstairs while seated at the main level bar as your bartender has to go upstairs to get it. They also offer an extensive bottled beer list, wine, and liquor.

I've had the pleasure of eating several of the menu items, spicy garlic shrimp, meat and cheese board, prime rib, fish and chips, beer can chicken melt, and many other items as well. All are good if not great, definitely not your run of the mill bar food.

Service has generally been very good, but a few of the bartenders are a little slow even when it's not that crowded.

Overall, I love Moerlein Lager House. If you are near dowtown Cincinnati you should definitely check it out.
