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.

It's not fancy; it's crowded and noisy; you'll likely need to wait for one of the few tables as customers mill around waiting for their carrry-out orders. But if you like local flavor, a simple menu, and corned beef, this is the place for you!

I'm no philosopher, but my friends who are talk about Plato and various "ideals," an ideal being the perfect chair, person, or whatever. Slyman's is in many respects the "ideal" deli, and whether that is a good or bad thing is up to you. I liked it, but with some caveats. Slyman's is at E. 31st and St. Clair in... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch after a visit to the Cleveland Clinc. The service was great and the sandwiches were fantastic. If you leave hungry you're the one to blame. Huge portions and tender meats. We will definitely be back!

There are very few places like it still around, and this is one of the best. The corned beef is so tender I can't believe it, and cant wait to come back to Cleveland for another visit.

This is the best corn beef sandwich I've had anywhere. Lean, not over spiced and on excellent Jewish rye, I had the second half of the sandwich the next day for lunch.

We have to go at least once or twice a year. Really great corned beef....reminds me of NYC and it is an unusual experience. You must not waste time in our order or you loose your place. We also love the great rye bread and potato salad. Sandwich will really feed two people.

Be sure to check Slyman's hours before visiting, which should be a given anyway. This is a diner-style place in a not-so-great area, so be warned. I love a good "greasy spoon," though, so this was right up my alley. We stopped by for breakfast and were pretty floored at the cost of the Corned Beef hash! $12.95! Wow! Thank... More
