Very good sandwiches, burgers, & wings. Service was pretty good too. Plenty of TVs, so you won't miss any action. Somewhat limited craft beer list.

Got to cleats at 12:30 on a Friday and the restaurant was almost empty, except for a few people sitting at the bar and 2 booths with 2 people each. We sat ourselves in the dining area. The bartender was our server and it took for-e-ver to get drink orders, then for-e-ver to get our food order taken. 40+ minutes... More

We chose Cleats for a Saturday night, because of a Restaurant.com certificate and a need for something quick and casual. It had been about 3 years since the last time we had dined there. We were pleased to find that the place had been updated, plenty of tables available and a pleasant atmosphere. We chose a nice booth. Service was... More

We went in two hours before having to leave for the airport..bad mistake! We ordered wings salads and wraps. We asked for sauce on the side or the wings, which did not come that way. They were good but not crispy like we ordered. We waited for the rest of our food for 1 hour! The bartender was friendly but... More

The owner of Cleats has survived the brutal sports bar industry by providing customers with Great Food, Happy Hour, Large Screen T.V. He has terminated franchises who did not conform to his plan, and that is the reason Cleats has survived after 30 plus years.

Cleats is your typical sports bar with lots of TVs. They have recently updated everything so it's clean and inviting. The service is great as is the food. Maria at the bar is great!

First the place was clean. Next our server was welcoming and cordial. The "twisted Tots" were so delicious...never had anything quite like these...a must try. Had the wings and they were meaty, not small wings. it was burger night and my wife lived hers. Overall a good experience...price was right. I really cannot point to anything to dislike...I would recommend... More

We arrived on a Friday night and it was seat yourself seating. That concept works if the servers are attentive to know when there are patrons in their section. It doesn't work when 4 parties seat themselves in the same section at the same time. It took about 10 minutes before our server took our drink order and we still... More

They are changing the fries. No bueno. They used to have fresh hand cut fries, but our waitress informed us that they are switching to processed frozen garbage due to customer complaints about fries being soggy. Here's a concept: teach someone how to cook them properly. Judging by my wings last night, the person on the fryer doesn't know what... More
