A good brewpub next to GABP right on the river. Pricey, but thatís to be expected downtown. Food is good and so was the service so how busy it gets. Beer selection isnít bad, but Iíd like to see a little more brewery-only beers on draft.

Exceed my expectations. Ambiance was afterwork white collar crowd. Service was decent. Selection was limited but had many different styles. Food was way better than any bar, pub or brewery I ever been to. Everyone I went with loved their food. I also daresay that their German food was way better than the brewery from across the river. The beer prices were steep that stems from the location (just across from the GABP). Will go again, but for the food.

Place has a great view of the Cincinnati Riverfront and right next to the Reds stadium. Food was really good and the beer selection was above average. I enjoyed it!

Went here on Easter Sunday,between the Redsí pre- and post-game crowds. Nice selection of Moerlein brew (including ones exclusive to the brewpub. Server was friendly and knowledgeable about the beers. The one drawback--and to me itís a big one--is that the place is rather pricey. I guess one would expect that, given the prime riverfront location. But I hope that a happy hour will be put in place after baseball season to ease the price sting a bit. Still, Iím glad the place exists, and I hope Moerlein head guy Greg Hardman keeps his promise to bring back some Cincinnati beers that havenít been made in decades.

Stopped in opening week while in town. Nice location next to the ballparks, I imagine this place gets very crowded on game day. I found the place to be rather loud in the dining area. They had a few house brews on tap which were okay. Service was subpar IMO, they mucked up my order and then didnít bring ketchup when I asked for it. Perhaps it was opening week jitters but Iím not in a hurry to head back.

If you are in Cincinnati you should try to add this to your list of stops. It is a big place, right on the river. We went before a Reds game (it is right next to the ball park). They have a nice selection of their own beers and a solid guest list of nice geek beers. The menu is extensive and our food was all very good. It feels more like a big chain place than a brewpub, but thatís not always a bad thing.

I and my ladyfriend Nancy had dinner there yesterday, and we found the place marvelous! Yes, the food is a tad pricey, but itís certainly worth it! And the beer selections of both Moerlein and other brews is fantastic!

Moerlein Lager House is the shiny new gem of the Banks project in downtown Cincinnati along the River. Having seen a million photos and articles already, this place pretty much met my expectations, which were, to be fair, pretty high. Itís huge, with bars and kitchens on both levels, a wrap-around patio on both levels, high ceilings, big windows with great views- pretty incredible place. It was crowded at 1:30 on a Saturday, when I visited. The staff is clearly new, and didnít know much about the beers; our waiter brought out a sampler to one person at our table, and he had no idea which beer was which. I knew way more about the Moerlein beers than he or any other staff we interacted with, which isnít good. The food is good, and on the high end of the brewpub price spectrum. For that matter, the beers seemed a bit overpriced for such a familiar local brand. I guess they have to pay for this place somehow.

Awesome place, the food is a little pricy, but well worth it. For anyone who loves cincinnatis brewing past, this place is essential. Nice atmosphere and great beer!

Moerlein Lager House is pretty swanky, but it doesnít really feel German or overly beer-related. It has more of a modern feel than anything. The food is tasty, but rides the fence between being priced reasonably and high/over-priced. The beer selection is pretty good with about 6 Moerlein beers on tap and 14 or so Guest Taps along with a bunch of other stuff available in bottles. THE STAFF AND BARTENDERS KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE BEERS (regardless of where it is a Moerlein or guest beer). If itís not written down someplace (either on the menu or tap handle), they have no idea what they have, what it is, or anything else about it! That is pretty terrible for a brewpub/LAGER HOUSE!
