Visited for dinner on a Sunday evening. We were able to easily park on the street. We called ahead just to make sure we could get in when we were wanting to, but that was completely unnecessary. When we walked in at 7:30, we were able to be seated immediately. Within a couple minutes, our waiter was at our table. We ordered drinks and perused the menu. The prices on things were a little more pricy, but I came into this with the expectation this was a higher end restaurant with high quality food. You pay for that. Iím not talking exorbitant pricing. Two dinners (risotto balls, truffle mac and cheese, turkey and goat cheese sandwich, jalapeno cole slaw), an appetizer (truffle fries), and a beer one beer was about $50 before tip.I really do not find that bad.
The beer selection was lengthy enough with plenty of variety within. Nice range of sour, dark, light, hoppy, malty. My wife and I both enjoyed ourselves quite a bit here.
They had music during our visit, and it was a pretty fun two-man cover band. They played acoustic and kept the volume at a respectable level.
All things considered, I really look forward to my next visit.
23 taps. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Awesome food. Kid friendly environment. Lots of Listermann brews. So glad I went and canít wait to go back. A little pricy for the food.

Neat, out-of-the-way place with a really good selection (20+ taps, 50 bottles), and excellent food. Servers are familiar with the brews, the atmosphere is low-key and friendly. Location is not near anything, but is worth seeking out. Also...4 oz draft samples available @ $2.50 per.
This is a great bar along the river in Cincinnati. The downstairs is fairly small, but I guess they have an upstairs too. There is a patio as well. Great beer menu, largely featuring locals such as Listermanns, Blank Slate, Madtree, etc. but also plenty of other beers (Three Floyds, Jolly Pumpkin, Founders). Their theme is a New Orleans Cajun-style restaurant, so they do have some Abitas on tap. One thing that I liked is that the beer menu is listed in terms of pricing, starting with all the $5 beers, then $6 and so on. I think it goes up to $8. The food menu is mostly New Orleans style, but some other stuff too. All homemade, local ingredients, very tasty. The Amish chicken was excellent and highly recommended. The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Overall, a great stop to try a bunch of Cincinnati beers.
Stopped in here with some friends on a Saturday night in early February. The location is on Riverside Drive on the east side of town. The bartenders claimed it wasnít that crowded for a typical Saturday but it felt jammed. There is a narrow space between the bar and door and itís hard to get through when people are standing around waiting for tables. Really nice bar space but the upstairs has a more bland feel. Great service here, really nice staff overall. About 2 dozen taps with a solid variety. Didnít pay much attention to the bottles but that looked like a good list, too. Prices are surprisingly high for Cincinnati; $5 house drafts (contracted to Great Crescent), and all others were $7-$11.50. The $8 price point had the most selections. Wow. We didnít eat but will be sure to sometime in the future. Good place.
This place is grossly underrated. If you consider yourself a beer enthusiast or a foodie, this is a mandatory stop in Cincinnati. I canít think of anywhere else in town that approaches the quality and focus of BrewRiver. The beer lineup features an excellent core selection of house beers with a rotating offering. There are another at least dozen guest taps with focus on rarities and high quality offerings. Bottle selection also featured some highly desireables. The food is absolutely top notch. Everything is made in house, down to the ketchup. Beer is incorporated in basically every single dish and beer and wine pairings are featured for everything on the menu. I had an oyster po boy with Sriracha remoulade. man. delicious. All of this is featured in a classy old house with an inviting patio. The service was personable, knowledgeable and attentive. I loved this place!
Nice new pub on Riverside. Theyíre currently brewing their beers at Great Crescent, but they plan to brew there within the next two years. Food was good, as was their draft selection. A nice spot that Iíll definitely be returning to.

Street parking, both sides after 6 PM. Two story building with entrance on the side in patio area. Bar in the center with tables around the walls and upstairs dining. Freindly people with growing knowledge of beers. Goods selection with their own production brews. did not eat, but the menu looks like a nice change of pace for Cincinnati. Well worth a visit going to or away form downtown. Visited again and was asked to pay $8 for a short pour good, not great, pilsner and was told it was fair price by one of the owners. Wrong!
Visited again and found a very good tap list , friendly service and very good happy hour prices weekdays 5:00 to 6:00.
