I visited the Lager House last Sunday before a Reds game. First of all it is great to actually see bars on the Ohio side FINALLY. I love the fact that it is right by the GABP. I walked in and was met with a very modern looking interior, probably because it is a new building. There was a lot of stonework with plenty of windows to look out at the Ohio River. The dining area had a wait but we managed to squeeze in at the bar on the beer garden side. The beer garden didn't open until noon. I thought that was odd on a game day with a 1:10 start.

Anywho, I had a flight. I couldn't choose the beers. It came with four 4oz samples. Meh. My buddies and I shared a bucket of Little Kings, which were delicious, and got a free maibock from an order snafu. I had a tuna burger to eat, awesome! The tuna came with homemade chips, but they were sweet potato chips. I am not a fan of sweet potato fries, but the chips were good. My friends each had a reuben sandwich. Neither complained nor raved about the cuisine.

Christian Moerlein had 8 house beers on tap as well as their bottled and canned selections. They also had a nice selection of guest taps that I found out that they served at the upstairs bar, which I did not venture up to due to time restrictions. The service was adequate for as busy as they were. It is going to be a regular pre/post game stop for Reds games. Great atmoshere and food.

The beer selection both on draft and bottle was great. The food was excellent! The service was also outstanding.

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.

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.
