Cleary's has the best pub food!

My husband and I go to Cleary's pretty regularly. Not only is the food really good, but the staff are all exceptionally nice and efficient. I think Cleary's "Original burger" is the best burger I have had anywhere. My husband loves their "Prime rib burger". Alll of their sandwiches are great... read more

A girlfriend and I met on our way home from work. I asked my very nice waitress if they make a good margaritas and she said yes so we both ordered one. It came in a nice size glass which I liked but it was all ice and sweet N sour mix. We were not even sure if it had... More

I had the Blackened Salmon & Linguini and I honestly can't remember what my friend had. We were too busy ooh and aahing over the food. DELICIOUS and the service was great!!! Next yr. when I am here I will try the Fire Roasted Tomato & Shrimp Linguini because I had a difficult time deciding this time.

A little bit of Irish here from the beer to the food dishes! a good value for the price, can be very busy at times --- but the service is quick and they move the food out fast. very popular eatery.

Stop here after a day of shopping so I asked the waitress what she would recommend...she said either fish and chips or a burger so I chose the fish. Was very good and would order it again.

Excellent food, had the turkey Reuben with sweet potato fries. Came out in good time, hot and fresh with excellent flavor. Sat at the bar and had attentive service. Staff appears to care about their guests.

We stopped in for a quick post-show bite. (Purple Rose Theatre is around the corner). It was shortly before normal rush time frame so there were few others there. Wait staff was friendly and helpful. Food, including beef on both of our entrees, was good quality. Decent number and variety of menu choices, including naan in a few items. By... More

Had a dinner with friends and I was pleasantly surprised! The menu was varied, the prices in line and the atmosphere was good. It was a bit dark, but it is a bar after all! I will definitely recommend and return!

In a very old but classic building with the atmosphere maintained. Perhaps it is typical "pub" food, but it was very good. The fish and chips were tasty (and the fish was not fishy-tasting) and the Shepherd's something-or-other burger was also very good.
