It's everything they said it is......

I've lived in the Cleveland area for years and have heard nothing but great things about Slyman's, but had never been there until this week. Wow! The Reuben is the best sandwich I have ever had. I'm a big fan of corned beef, pastrami, etc and have had a lot that I really enjoy. The Slyman's... read more

Absolutely the best corned beef in Cleveland. Huge sandwich with tender meat on soft rye bread. Very friendly staff.. Get there early for lunch or plan on standing in line.

Nothing fancy but don't let the setting fool you...the sandwiches (and potato salad!) are delicious!! The corn beef sandwiches are big enough for 2!! A "don't miss" stop when in Cleveland!! Yummy!!

No question - the BEST CORNED BEEF IN the city of Cleveland - if not in the nation! I go there all the time and am never disappointed.

This was our second visit here; the first was many years ago. Unsurprisingly, they still make absolutely massive sandwiches stuffed beyond comprehension with your meat filling of choice. The fries were nothing special but a member of our party tried the potato pancakes and declared them good. If you're looking to sit down for lunch, don't be dissuaded by the... More

Have not been to Slyman's in a while. Do know it is still as wonderful. They pile on the corned beef and for me there was enough meat in the sandwich to take home and have another sandwich. Come St. Patrick's Day the line to get in is even longer than it already is. Worth going there no matter how... More

Yep too big to put in your mouth but lots of fun to go for lunch. Just take a fork and eat some of the corned beef off the sandwich before you try and put it in your mouth
