After our son graduated from Ohio Technical College at the Holiday Inn, we went across the street to have a celebration meal. The food, beer and desserts were awesome. I personally did not like the onion rings. Being a Bostonian, I like them a certain way and these seemed like the frozen kind, not batter dipped. The waitress was accomodating... More

Very crowded on Friday night, but they got me seated within a few minutes. Good bar food, had a tasty cup of chili and some boneless chicken wings. HUGE selection of beers. If you can't find a beer you like here, stop drinking beer. Word of warning, the "Fire in the Hole" sauce, the hottest they offer, is HOT!! I... More

Typical chain sports bar/ restaurant. They were accommodating to put on the basketball game we wanted to watch and our server Janet O was very attentive despite being really busy. Food was decent for the price. It wouldn't be a go to place for me though.

Place was awesome, great beer selection, food served quick, hot and tasty. When you enter the building you have a great fresh scent of fresh popcorn in the lobby for you to snack on while you wait. The the environment is loud so if you do not like loud places this is not a place for you but it has... More

We have eaten here on a few occasions when staying near Cleveland and have always had a good experience. This time we were greeted and seated immediately. Our waitress was attentive and helpful. The cheese bacon fries were excellent. The ribs were not. There was a lot of what appeared to be gristle in the ribs. The flavor was good... More

We were in Cleveland for a hockey tournament, and this restaurant was minutes from our hotel. We arrived with a group of 16 which became 22 as more teammates arrived. The staff was helpful and friendly - no one got flustered with our large group. Service was excellent. Food was great. Prices reasonable and no problem with separate checks! Definitely... More
