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

Place used to be a little above average but have gotten way out of line with their prices for a sports bar atmosphere. Wings are just average (not the greatest as claimed on the sign).I have had wings at many places and there are better out there,believe me.Hand cut fries are very good.but i can honestly say, everything else that...

Local bar where everyone knows each other. It was a great place to hang out once we became known by the other regulars until they jacked up all their prices. We don't go as often because of this. Even the bartenders acknowledge this to be a problem. For the cost we will go somewhere nicer in Chardon.

I can say, the service was good. We were a big party with 3 checks. The waiter was attentive and the food delivery was fast. I ordered the jalapeño crab dip with pita chips for an appetizer and it was good. For our meal with had various kinds of wings. The traditional wings were crispy, but the hot I ordered... More

The service is terrible here. We have eaten there on many ocassions and the service is always slow and uncaring. If we get pretzel appetizers they are always over microwaved. Nothing good to say about this place but the decor is spacious and pleasant. The bar area is like a sports bar. The dining area is bright and roomy.

We have eaten at several of the Cleats in our area. They are a typical sports bar menu with not good food. The service has been slow which is why we tried different ones, hoping it was just a bad day. We have tried different menu items, my husband likes wings and have tried a few different sauces, but he... More
