This is a bar, so its loud and informal. Help yourself to the free popcorn while you enjoy your drinks and wait for your food.

The burgers were outstanding and a phenomenal value at... More

The menu is predictable American tavern food. Wraps, wings, tons of beer choices, etc. Nothing really stood out as special and a reason to return except for the wait staff in both the bar and restaurant area. They were all fabulous.

Took my teen daughter & cousin here for dinner. Great service, & food was amazing. We also loved the different choices for drinks. It was kind of crowded in there but everything went well, & we didn't have to wait long for waiter or for our food

We recently visited Cleveland for business and this place was close to our hotel. This place is fantastic! The beer selection would rival any place in America. Food was excellent and presented perfectly. Server was quick and very nice. Great Local hangout! Will definitely return.

Stopped here for a night cap and to watch some basketball games. The place was pretty empty at 9pm but that was ok. The menu for beer is large which is great with a ton of options. Nice TV's in the bar area so that was a bonus.
