We walked in the door and there was a line to the street (only really took 20 minutes for take-out). We ordered the corned beef melt to go and boy am I glad that I did. We were only able to eat half of the sandwich for lunch because it was so big. You'll have to really work on eating... More

Great corned beef and other deli products. We were very disappointed in the "attitude" of the apparent owner, "Fred". He was really kind of nasty to us barking out commands and demanding our orders. At first we thought this was his routine to entertain customers, but soon found this is really what he is. We decided to take our order... More

Since I work during the weekdays and never having the opportunity to try Slymans, I was excited to see that they were finally open on Saturdays. I took a special drive out and ordered the Pastrami, cheese and mustard on a kasier to go. Before I could unwrap my sandwich the grease had already saturated the wrapping and the kaiser... More

Huge sandwiches. Plenty big enough to split. Corned Beef Hash is to die for. Nothing fancy here. Great deli meat and lots of it.

Granted we had to stand outside in the cold waiting for seats, but make no mistake, the huge corned beef sandwich is worth it. Stay happy and fill your belly with 12oz of delicious corned beef. It's a quaint small restaurant atmosphere and everyone in Cleveland knows it....and loves it. My only complaint is that the pickles weren't pickly enough!

We had been wanting to stop by Slyman's during our last few trips to Cleveland and finally made it. It was two days before Christmas and the place was packed and lined up around the building. We took that as a good sign. My husband ordered the Reuben and I got the ham and cheese. Our server was pleasant and... More

While visiting family we were told that we had to try the Corned Beef at Slyman's Deli. I ordered the Ruben and my Son In-Law ordered the corned beef and were shared. The food was great and the wait staff was also very friendly. I can't wait to go back and I think that I will try the roast beef... More

I travel extensively for business. Yesterday I was in Cleveland, Ohio on a business trip and I wanted to treat my clients to a nice take out lunch as a way to express appreciation and gratitude for their business. The company executives suggested that I purchase their takeout lunch from Slyman's. After the secretary took everyones lunch order she called... More

You won't believe the size of the sandwiches here. I shared one with my daughter, but my husband and son in law were able to eat a whole one. The service was very quick and friendly. The prices were reasonable for the amount of food. The corned beef was lean and tender, piled high and tasty.

We ordered some fries and asked if they could make something with a little extra, it doesn't get better.
