Moerlein Lager House
115 Joe Nuxhall Way
As much as I love beer - and Christian Moerlein in particular - I cannot recommend the new Moerlein Lager House to readers of this blog because of the abysmal vegetarian selections on the menu. We eagerly visited on opening day Monday, and what a disappointment! Vegans get diddly - not even a salad, and vegetarians are relegated to appetizers: parmesan garlic fries ($7), a plate of soft pretzels with a gloppy Velveeta-style cheese sauce (not vegetarian!) and horseradish sauce ($7), deep-fried pickles ($8), or lager bread ($7). The caprese flatbread ($9) is the lone veggie entree on the lunch menu; there isn't anything at all on the dinner menu. It's a real shame that the signature restaurant at The Banks didn't take us into consideration.
The building is lovely, the view amazing and the beer is awesome. Just don't plan on having a meal there if you don't eat meat.
