Not overly impressed with the food, the service, the location or the atmosphere. We meet three other couples here on a Sunday and it was fairly quite around noon. They put together some tables for us but service was a slow for what appeared to...More

Food took a little while, but if you feel like some good pub grub and music, its well worth the wait. Close to Jakobs Pavillon for pre concert meals and drinks.

A quaint local pub with a good selection of Irish grub and typical pub food. Good selection of beer. Boasting that they are Cleveland's oldest Irish pub and home for the St Patrick's Parade committee.

I went to this restaurant on Mother's Day. The food was actually good but the drinks were very expensive. I also had not been here for many years and actually missed the old appearance. It was totally redone and attractive but it was missing the...More

I used to visit the Flats in its boom time of the 80's and 90's which was essentially bulldozed. It's been reworked and rebuilt to a very nice area that looks a lot like something you'd find in a suburban location. The Flat Iron is...More
