We drove down from northwest ohio just to eat, drink and see the Moerlein Lager house on only its 2nd saturday open. We broght our teens so we went mid-afternoon. Mild crowd, we got rite in.

The Lager House sits next-door to Reds stadium. We parked in the new parking garage under the house for $4 bucks.

The House is three levels, three bars plus a beer garden. With great views of the Ohio River. Its new construction thats modern yet hand painted murals take you back in time.
The brewing tanks are in glass as you enter as is a brew musium and a small gift shop. Only odd thing was beer to go wasn't available yet.

The food was great quality homemade, chef made to order even down to house made sweet potato chips.

The beer was good and cold, 8 Moerleins on tap with 12 guest taps and a nice 75 bottled brews to pick or share a bomber.

Expect this place to be Real busy come game days though worth the try to get in. Several tv's, you wont miss a play.

I'll be back for sure. (986 characters)

Great location if you are going to a Reds or Bengals game. Not a bad place, just nothing to write home about. Average beer, albeit pricy. (137 characters)

I give this place a perfect score. The reality is most of the house beer here is just decent. But they have an awesome variety of great guest beers. The food is amazing! The location is stellar. Check it out after a Bengals or Reds game. (237 characters)

I think it's safe to say this is a unique place. The Lager House is two stories. It's much more of a restaurant atmosphere than a lager house atmosphere. Regardless, there is a bar on each floor. It is more advisable, however, to go there for a meal. The food is excellent and there is essentially a full restaurant menu.

You can try all of the Christian Moerlein beers on tap as well as a decent list of other guest taps. Flights are available. The beers a whole are above average but noting terribly exciting in my opinion. The OTR Ale and Vienna Lager are the highlights of the Moerlein lineup. The Moerlein beers are in name only as the original brewery went belly up during Prohibition. The current business owner has been wisely buying up old Cincinnati brewery names and revitalizing the core of the beer experience in Cincinnati.

The overall atmosphere is what sells the place. The entire establishment is on the banks of the Ohio and half of the building is glass offering a full view of the river and the magnificent Roebling Suspension Bridge. The is a wrap around patio as well for very pleasant and scenic outside dining. (1,150 characters)

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). (313 characters)
