Went back to try the $8.95 rib special. Great and meaty ribs with a slightly special BBQ sauce. Fries and coleslaw round out the meal. Wednesday only but well worth it

How can you miss with the combination of really good food, a fantastic selection of beers and too many TVs to count playing all manner of sports? The kids ate burgers, I had wings, my wife had a quesadilla. Get the Great Lakes Brewing Company beers to go along with your food. We were there for the Indians Home Opener... More

This place is great to go to before going to see your favorite Cleveland sports team play. They have great food and lots of seating. It is within walking distance of the Q and progressive Field.

Busy pub-like atmosphere. Got there at 6 p.m. on a Thursday and it was packed. I found a seat at the bar and when I left at 6:45 several seats had become available. It looked like an after-work place. But I loved it. The bartender called me "Miss" and being 63 I appreciated that! It features a huge beer menu,... More

The food was reasonably priced but a little less than average for American Bar food. The nachos and cheese fries had a lot of processed cheese. The serving sizes were small. The beer selection was good. We arrived 3 hours before a Cavs game and got one of the last tables. Within a half hour people were waiting to get... More

Went here twice for dinner, great food (pizza awesome) and fantastic beer selection. Very good atmosphere. Seemed to be crowded with local people. Close to casino and sports events.

The service was exceptional, food wonderful and atmosphere perfect to end the day with. Loved the draft selections of beer. We loved the downtown location with the Arena just across the street. The only thing that could have improved it was if Mr. James walked in.

The wings were amazing, and so was the service! We were in town for the Cavaliers game, it's a cool place for the whole family, and it's right across the street from the stadium.
