This is a great little restaurant on Riverside Drive. We both had the Streetcar Burger. Very good. The fries are soaked in vinegar then sea salted. Darn good ! And the "ambiance"? Quaint comes to mind. I can imagine it being a little cramped if the inside was filled. We visited this past Tuesday, so it was too cool to... More

BrewRiver is always an enjoyable dining experience. Even on a crowded Friday night, the staff is friendly and efficient and the food delicious. Nice selection of craft beers to choose from; interesting nightly specials as well.

I picked up a Cincinnati Red Bike from Smale Waterfront park and rode to the BrewRiver GastroPub. It's easy to miss if you're not looking for it but that seems to be it's only weak point. They had a great range of beers and the food was delicious. The best part for me though was the chap playing the keyboard... More

First visit to the BrewRiver and it will definitely not be the last! We started off with a beer sampler picked by our server...great selection of draft beers. We had the Natchez burger and the turkey / goat cheese sandwich. Both selections were fresh and flavor packed. Service was exceptional! We are so glad we found this hidden gem. We... More

Taken here by our family who lives in town. Server was good. Drinks were reasonable. Food was also good. Unfortunately, one burger was overcooked and returned. It never arrived and the rest of us had finished our meals so the replacement order was canceled. They did honor their mistake by not only not charging for the meal but, given him... More

Couldn't have been happier with our choice. Great casual vibe in an old house. It's along the river away from downtown. It has a New Orleans flare, even had a 4 piece Cajun band playing outside where we ate. It was so hard to make an entree selection that we worked our way through 1/2 of the appetizers menu and...

The wife and I went to BrewRiver for dinner on a Tuesday evening. The place was crowded but not overly crowded. The had live music in the bar area. We sat on the 2nd floor and it overlooked the Ohio River. The food was amazing, the drinks were awesome, the staff was excellent. I had the Natchez burger and my... More

We will be returning. I had the Benedict- poached eggs on artichoke and spinach on English muffin- so good. My husband had the biscuit and gravy with eggs on top - absolutely sinful!

We stopped here with two young kids on a visit to Cincinnati. The food was delicious. The server brought out our Mac and cheese immediately which was very helpful for our loud 1 year old. We would definitely go back again.
