    Good food and beer, great view! Moerlein has a fantastic view of the Ohio River. Go on a nice day and sit on the patio. Nothing compares to it. Get the fries with a side of beer cheese. So good!

    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!

    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!

    Meat & cheese board appetizer was on point. My main entree was the meatloaf. So good! Atmosphere is great. Bathrooms clean but small. Overall, my first time here was a good one! I'll be back.
  • John W.
    The view from the upper floor was a wonderful overview of the city. The menu was eclectic with the food being very good and the beer selection was great. I want to go back.

    I love everything on the menu from the Moer Burger to the crispy tofu to the OTR chicken and short rib grilled cheese. The Barbarossa is the perfect winter beer.

    The Moer burger, caprese flatbread, build your own awesome appetizers and a flight of locally brewed beer! A must visit!!!

    Great service and food. I was pleasantly surprised and will return. It was my first visit as a non cincinnati native and this beats alot of local institutions.

    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.

    The beer selection is top notch and the good is phenomenal. Would recommend the short rib grilled cheese or the charcuterie plate with the candied pork belly.

    Food is great. Get the fried pickles and anaheim peppers and you won't be disappointed. Only drawback is that is can get pretty loud in here.
  • Melinda K.
    Short Rib was one of the best things I've ever eaten! Top 5 food for me. The tomato based sauce on top was like icing on a cake!

    Huge space, good brews, but spotty service. Granted, it was game night, but short-staffed and difficult to keep the cold ones coming.

    Bay of Bengal double IPA is a fave. Great short ribs for an entree or short rib grilled cheese for a sandwich

    the BEST CRAB CAKES I've ever had, bar none, including the best that Baltimore has to offer!

    If you get the meat and cheese plate make sure to get the candied pork belly. I recommend skipping the prosciutto for something else.

    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!

    If the theme is the history of Moerlein beers, it would have been nice to have a cask beer. The beers are nice and fresh however.
  • Francisco M.

    The dopplebock is a good seasonal beer. Malty with a bit of a coffee finish. Really nice for those who like a little lighter dark beer.

    Large beer selection. Lots of local stuff. Good canned beers! A large food menu often foretells of mediocrity. The food is not as good as the beer. I liked it, but I'd explore other places.

    Food was wonderful and service was great. However, $26 for a cup of soup, thin sliced prime rib sandwich and a glass of ice tea. Rather expensive for us working class.
