August 1, 2014
The second half of baseball season is a time to indulge
In the Riverfront Club, try the burger topped with applewood bacon, aged Cheddar cheese, and house-made steak sauce, served with with chips.
Also available at the Riverfront Club is this epic sausage — turkey and chicken sausage, duck prosciutto, arugula, and sweet pepper relish.
You can also go for your classic sports-viewing fare, wings, in the Riverfront Club.
For your sweet fix, try this decadent dessert with vanilla ice cream, chocolate cake with walnuts, and a caramel sauce drizzle.
New to the stadium this year is the Brewery District. The 85-foot bar is located between sections 117 and 118 and has 60 taps. Twenty-three of those are for craft and local brews such as Christian Moerlein, Rhinegeist, Mt. Carmel, and many more, while classics like Bud Light, Goose Island, and Stella are also available.
The glowing beer taps seen here showcase the offerings, including Great Lakes from Cincinnati's neighbors to the north, Cleveland, plus Cincinnati favorites Blank Slate, Rhinegeist, Christian Moerlein, and Rivertown.
Mr. Red's Smokehouse
This outpost is located at the corner of right field, and overlooks the Ohio River and northern Kentucky. They have a menu that includes smoked beef ribs, turkey legs, a pulled pork sandwich wings, an assortment of sides, and of course, beer.
The Smokehouse has a few rotating menu items depending on who the team is playing, including this "Smoked Cardinal" when the St. Louis Cardinals are in town. Don't worry, it's actually quail.
Try these tilapia tacos at the Machine Room Grille, located in left field.
Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich
This delicious sandwich is made with French toast bread and comes with a side of strawberry dipping sauce.
The Bacon Challenge
Eat four of these sandwiches (that's a pound of bacon, by the way) in one inning, and you'll get the $60 value free, plus an “I Conquered The Bacon Challenge” t-shirt. Oh, plus you have to eat the sides of chips and potato salad. I mean, Cincinnati is nicknamed Porkopolis.
