We went to the Flat Iron on a Friday during Lent. All of us ordered the Lake Erie Perch plate. Needless to say, it was delicious. But their menu has so many more appetizers, salads, dinner entrees, and special desserts. We are definitely going there...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.
