I have been searching the US for a better corned beef sandwich for years but there is just not one better. Lean, melt in your mouth and enough to make another sandwich.

Try to hit every year when in town. Corned beef is best I've had in Cleveland or anywhere I've traveled. Once tried pastrami but much prefer corned beef. Take your appetite, Huge sandwiches and dill pickles . Very fast service. Carry out available. Cost of each sandwich around $15 but worth it. Took 1/2 home for dinner. Check hours. Open... More

Slyman's is a Cleveland landmark, known for their corned beef sandwiches. They carry a full line of sandwich meats, as well as burgers, sliced meats by the pound - typical deli style. Old time decor, great service.

If you like too much salty corned beef or pastrami that doesn't even look like pastrami, let alone taste like it, go here ! Yes, the service is great and fast and you get a ton of value for what you pay. But if you're looking for quality corned beef or pastrami, Manhattan Deli is far superior. Or try Otto... More

Came with a couple coworkers to get lunch for the office and it was packed! Packed in a good way because the food was absolutely amazing. Get the corn beef sandwich and you'll need a to go box too. Decent prices and just wait patiently in line, it's worth it!! Friendly staff!

Everyone raves about Slyman's. The sandwich was good but not great. I would return but I would only order the corn beef, the pastrami was just average. Had much better in other cities. Servers very friendly and super fast. Very limited drink menu, no fountain.

Cleveland competes with the best in NY! You get more on two slices of rye bread than you can imagine.

Hands down best corned beef in Cleveland. Both locations are great but downtown is slightly better. The rockside location has a larger menu but the original corned beef sandwich is best in Cleveland.

I've had corned beef & pastrami all over the country. I have to say that Slyman's corned beef is the best. service is always friendly and quick, prices are reasonable, and the food is consistently terrific. Note, I am not referring to any of the Slyman's locations OTHER THAN the original St Clair location. I have not been as enthused... More
