The Clevelander is bringing the adult playground experience back to the beach. A 70-year tradition of fun is now enhanced more than ever thanks to a complete renovation of its boutique hotel featuring 60 cozy rooms and Rock Star Suites, the ground floor poolside bars and new Clevelander Café, the Game On Sports Bar, and the new additions including the C-Level Rooftop Terrace and SPF4 Sundeck, and the property's first indoor nightlife venue – 1020 Music Boxx.

Love the vibe here!

I love the atmosphere at The Clevelander. There is always something going on here and lots of eye candy. The food and drinks have always been good. Not cheap, but not as bad as some other places on Ocean Drive.

Drinks were very strong and not well mixed. Not what I'm into, I like things that sneak up on you but then again, the Clevelander isn't known for being subtle.

Came here at 11am off the flight and had happy hour drinks which was cool. Ordered the Quinoa salad which was tasty and sat and people watched for a little while. This is always a come to spot, not matter the time of day. Late night is great too!

Happy Hour drinks are great value. Love the remodel that was done. Sit on the sidewalk booths and watch the world pass you buy. The burgers are great, and best price on a plate of crab legs I have scene. Customary 18% and 10% tip and tax added to bill.

If you are young and has a lot energy this place is fun. Loud music and out side bar is great to socialize and meet people. They have some fun drinks and good selection of beer. The food is not too exciting and the service could be slow if very crowded.

This sidewalk-style outdoor bar and restaurant has some of the most attentive wait staff I have seen anywhere, unusual for a beach-type place. With plenty of seating and umbrellas, the Clevelander is well located and steps from the beach. Their happy hour specials truly are, and their regular prices are competitive. There's even a pool and a live DJ with... More

Stay away from the Clevelander! This place is highly overrated, and the drinks incredibly overpriced. Worst service I have ever had in my life. The entire staff (especially the bartenders) need to take a customer service coarse. I sat up at the bar on a night that was not very busy, and the female bartender just ignored me and refused...

Staff was great the food amazing and the drinks too. I met a couple of friends from Chicago for lunch and it was their happy hour. We got some appetizer to share as we weren't so hungry and had mega drinks for only $15 dollars well worth. The calamari was not crispy enough for my taste but everything else was... More
