I go here because it's fairly close to places that I frequent. Food is pretty good, but when I ask for my burger to be cooked medium well they don't cook it long enough. When I ask for it well done they burn it lol

My wife & son & I stopped here for dinner and had a wonderful time with their many brews and great tasting food offerings. When you eat on their patio, you have a wonderful view of downtown Cleveland!

Monday is half off wings. Loved the bourbon Barrel sauce. This place is always packed so expect a Wait if you have a large group.
