Just the BEST Corn Beef in Cleveland!

Slymans is an institution in Cleveland and has the best, freshest corn beef in Cleveland. Staff is friendly and efficient. You'll always find it packed, but the line moves fast. They have other great things on the menu, but their corn beef is to die for. Portions are large.

If you live in Cleveland, you've almost certainly eaten here a few times -- more if you work downtown. If you are from out of town, this is a "must visit" lunch spot. I am pretty certain they are only open 6AM to 2PM weekdays. On a nice weather Friday, the lines can go out the door and down the... More

Your meal will be 10-15 dollars per person but the amount of food you get is worth it. One of the best cornbeef places in Cleveland

This just needed to be added. French toast infused with bacon! That little bit of bacon in every bite. Excellent!

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
