We came here for lunch. I had a hard time figuring out what to eat. We got the wings and the fried chicken sandwich. The wings and fries were good. The sandwich was decent. The pomegranate green tea was good. The ginger beer was also Good. I would like to try dinner here.

Went here for happy hour and enjoyed a delightful Bordeaux which at about $6 was really worth it. Their happy hour menu prices are not posted online that I could find and I was surprised at how expensive it was. Their happy hour prices were the same as another restaurants regular prices. If you are okay with that, then check... More

Went on a busy Saturday night. Service was attentive and helpful. Food was unimpressive. We had the cheese platter and chicken wings as apps. Wings were probably the best part of the entire meal. For $12 dollars I would expect more than maybe 1/2 ounce of cheese. I had the pig's head. The presentation was great. The cooking was great.... More

Went in a group of eight with great expectations. Their version of chicken wings was different but outstanding. Best dish we had of the night. All else was just average. Not up to what we expected based on other reviews. Service started great, but fell to average once the evening progressed. I think there are lots better options for an... More

Did some sight seeing in downtown Cleveland and of course went to East 4th. Greenhouse Tavern was one of the few restaurants that was open before 4PM Decor kinda neat with bikes hanging from ceiling. Some had tags on them with a number. I inquired to employee as what the ages were for. She handed me a print out with... More

The soft cheese omelette and Fred Flinstone Short Ribs say it all. Imaginative combos, ample portions & an unpretentious ambiance. My favorite stop in Cleveland.

I hate to give this place an average review, because I believe they are earnest in their attempts to please, but I just felt uncomfortable with their pretentious menu, expensive prices, slightly dirty outdoor seating, slow service, and not that great food. I like the local sourcing, but no one needs to be snooty about it.

Yes, they actually make their own hot dogs, roll them in batter and serve them up with their own mustard sauce and their own ketchup... Great for an appetizer! The mac & cheese w/bacon was super too. Atmosphere is very casual and fun.

Personally I don't like my meat to still be red & that's clearly how they prefer to serve the food.... but other than that, they have some really fun stuff on the menu & much of it is locally sourced. The waiter we had was excellent - really loved his job, the restaurant, and everything else. I had the lamb... More
