I recommend Rivals. Here's why: in the summer the outdoor patio is large and beautiful. The food at Rivals is not typical bar food... its really good, high quality! Awesome draft beer selection! Beers always seem to be very reasonably priced. Usually draws a good sized group to watch sporting events with. Nice sized TVs located throughout the restuarant so... More

My husband and I are in Cleveland this weekend to celebrate our 25th anniversary! Rivals was recommended by the hotel staff! I'm so glad we tried it! The Bison burger I ate was juicy and delicious, and my husband said his Bistro burger was the best burger he's ever eaten!!! Also, I'm usually not one to eat French fries, but... More

Really friendly, short wait, even on this busy night. Bartender Jason was Fantastic! Brought my 12 yr old son to watch game and get some wings after venturing downtown for the pregame festivities. Great time!

What a great introduction to a family friendly atmosphere in a sports bar and grill. We enjoyed delicious food with leftovers for later! Staff was friendly and welcoming. Already recommending Rivals as a place to go for food and music and/or sports tv.

Went here with family members. The staff is always friendly and there is never an excessive wait for drinks or food. The food is good, nothing crazy mind blowing awesome but good. The environment is nice whether you are a group of adults to watch the game, a family with kids or a couple, it's all good. The only reason... More

On a recent visit one evening we sat on the patio....Great no smoking area!!! However the heavy metal music blaring rather ruined the atmosphere. Burgers great but sent back for being undercooked. Good beer selection. Our server was good but failed to do anything about the music. Have been here many times and never had that type of music loudly... More

My boyfriend and I arrive on a recent Sunday night at 5pm. There were very few diners so were seated immediately.... More

The buffalo chicken flat bread was the best I've had. There are televisions everywhere, if you enjoy sports and tasty food you have to give this a try.
