Moerlein Lager House Restaurant Review

: Cincinnati has a brewing history. Part of it is owed to Christian Moerlein, a Bavarian immigrant and blacksmith who lived in this area and started Christian Moerlein Brewing Company in 1853. Today, this riverfront restaurant situated next to the Great American Ball Park is part of The Banks neighborhood renovation, which draws young urban dwellers, baseball fans and business types. There's a nod to Bavaria in everything from the beer to soft pretzels and beer cheese. But you can also get crispy balsamic tofu with spinach basil risotto; meatloaf with Barbarossa demi-glace and cheddar mashed potatoes; and butternut squash Wellington. Go for a side of Brussels sprouts, or ask for an entire gluten-free meal if you're so inclined. A family attending a game next door can get a kid's meal (entrée, side and a drink) for $6. Top your meal off with dessert, such as the black cherry forest cake or the Graeter's ice cream trio. Some tables have their own taps; many spots offer unobstructed views of the riverfront. You can take a Heritage Brewer Tour ($10) while you're here, or buy a minted beer token for someone who is deserving of a Moerlein draft.
