    The Moer Burger is one of the top five burgers I've ever had. The beef is perfectly seasoned and topped with pastrami, cheddar, an egg, bacon and sweet onion relish. Have a knife and fork ready!

    It is extremely loud that I can barely have a conversation with the person I'm sitting with.... Also very slow service... been here 20 minutes and still don't have drinks.

    My husband couldn't stop commenting about how delicious the fish tacos were. Meatloaf is also quite tasty. And, you can't go wrong with the meat and cheese board.

    LOUDEST bar/restaurant in Cinci. All hard surfaces inside, echoes like crazy. You can barely carry on a normal conversation with yelling. Good beer and view though!

    Get the Garlic Shrimp appetizer, the one served on the baguette. It's amazing. ✨

    Our partners at Christian Moerlein have opened an absolutely gorgeous and delicious restaurant and brewery at the banks. Sit on the balcony and overlook the river while you eat!

    An incredible atmosphere, amazing food, and delicious beers. Tried the Emancipator Double Bock and it was amazing. We had a large group, so the server recommended the sampler appetizer...worth it!
