“Great Burgers”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

I recently ate at The Corner Alley. It was a bit of a wait to get the food, but it was worth waiting for. The burger I got was the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger. It was perfectly done and the handmade chips that came with it were really tasty. I didn't bowl there, but it looked like those who were had a good time.

My teenaged son and I were in Cleveland to visit the R&R Hall of Fame. We had never eaten out in Cleveland before and were clueless. We were drawn to this restaurant because the wait staff who were outside (there is outside dining in a mall area with a number of restaurants) were very friendly. It also smelled good from the sidewalk. There were many other restaurants on this block but they were not as welcoming or reasonably priced. We asked our waiter what was good/fresh and he had excellent knowledge of the menu. Menu was interesting and included many options for vegetarians. I selected a pizza and my son selected a sandwich. Both were properly prepared, contained fresh ingredients, were presented attractively and came with sides that provided more than enough for both of us to eat. Free drink refills and a very attentive waiter. The bar area is large and they try to separate it from dining, but you can still see the large TV screens playing sports. This place also has bowling alleys! Looks like they're set up well for private parties. We will definitely go back if we are ever in Cleveland again.

“Glad We Struck Out”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We were visiting Cleveland to hear Elvis Costello's performance at the Palace Theatre and found that the highest rated and closest restaurants to Playhouse Square either didn't have any tables available or were closed on Mondays. The Corner Alley and 4th Street Bar and Grill sounded intriguing and they took our reservation, although it sounded like they're more used to taking bowling reservations than dining reservations. We had the grilled salmon and fish & chips, with the standard sides offered on the menu. Both entrees and the sides (especially the peas in pods that comes as standard with the salmon) were well-prepared and nicely plated (at least as well as one can plate fish & chips and waffle fries). The wine list is decidedly limited; however, it's not so much a wine type of restaurant as beer and martini-based. There's a sports bar feel (enhanced by the on-site bowling alley), but somehow it's also nicer than a typical sports bar. The location on the 4th Street pedestrian walkway means that there's also plenty of opportunity for people watching if you have a window seat or are seated at the open patio. The service was friendly and attentive. In short, we were glad that we didn't make it to one of the big chef-named places in the Playhouse Square area.

Fish and chips, waffle fries and fried pickles are amazing! A variety of drink specials and excellent service. An outstanding martini bar and a bowling alley to boot.
