Awesome sandwiches!

If you're looking for a hand-cut mile high corned beef or pastrami sandwich, look no further. Don't be expecting wine and white tablecloths. But do expect fast & friendly service, outstanding food and a fun, old-time atmosphere. Sandwich prices aren't cheap but are worth every single penny. I guess... read more

You haven't had a corned beef sandwich until you experience Slyman's -downtown Cleveland-- it is so large and juicy , you can hardly take a bite --it's really enough for 2. Come to Cleveland , don't miss Slyman's.

massive corned beef sandwiches. eat half, and the other half is a dinner. wonderful, fresh rye bread. really need no side, but fries are plentiful as well. tough to get in at lunch time. carry out often a better option. always terrific.

This was a great place -- my husband and I went for breakfast but the menu looked amazing. Prices were excellent and you could tell from various conversations that there were many "regulars" -- lots of laughter and smiles

I live in a suburb of Cleveland and there is always talk about how great Slyman's is. Frankly, I found the food was the same as I could have gotten from another sandwich shop and it was way over priced for the small portion. It will be unlikely that I will go back.

While the decor is basic but quite acceptable, the story here is the food and our waitress. The corned beef here is simply the best I have ever had. It's wonderful, and I even weighed the corned beef on our second sandwich when I got home: On a regular sandwich, it was over 6 ounces of heavenly corned beef. On... More

We do not have corned beef like Slyman's in Texas. One sandwich fed two very hungry people, and it was more delicious than any I've ever had. The pickle was crisp and delicious. We ate here on a Monday, and the crowd was manageable. The staff is friendly and efficient. A perk of eating there on Monday is the wonderful... More

This past Saturday was my first time at this establishment, it will not be my last! When we arrived we were very warmly greeted and the start to great service continued during the entire meal. I had one of their famous corned beef sandwichs, couldn't be beat. I'm looking forward to returning very soon and try another great meal.

I'm sure there are many places in Cleveland with excellent corned beef. Syman's happens to be the best. Its long history and reputation are well deserved. For lunch, bring a gigantic appetite or plan on taking half home for later. For breakfast, get the corned beef omelet, its basically a pile of corned beef on a folded egg. Very basic,... More
