My daughter met us at Cleats for a late dinner. Both my husband and I had a burger. It was juicy, cooked perfectly, and served hot off the grill. The fries were good also. I'm not much of a burger person but when a get a good burger I know it. Will go there again when we visit her.

Got together with friends after work for drinks and tried the hot spinach dip appetizer. It was very tasty. Drinks are average. Atmosphere was good.

We went here for lunch while we were staying in Chardon. The menu had a good variety and we especially enjoyed the wings, both boneless and bone-in.

The normal menu is a bit bland, but the Saint Paddy's day specials were excellent. The bar side is always good for drinks and talk. The restaurant is typical for a small tavern, menu selections limited, a couple of flat bread pizzas, burgers and wings, very few entrees . The service is prompt and friendly. It's a place that has... More

This place has so much potential it should seem. I keep going back hoping to have a good experience and it just never works out that way. The food is just awful. I don't know if I ever have had anything there that I really like. I think the items on the menu sound really good...but it doesn't love up... More

The food here is less than great but the service is horrible. The hours said close at 2am. At 10:30pm there were a handful of people left and they kicked everyone out. The waiter went table to table to tell everyone they had to leave. Another time an employee brought her sick kids in and made them sit in the... More

This is a standard, local, small-chain sports bar. Generally speaking the service is good and reliable - sometimes really good. The beer selection is decent (8+ on draft) but nothing more than what you'd expect from a sports bar. The food is hit or miss. Never terrible but never outstanding - that's been the constant with this place over the... More
