Slyman's is a bit of a Cleveland tradition, and is a well known establishment. Slyman's serves heaping plates of corn beef on a couple peices of bread. More than most can handle, this meal will fill up even the most hearty folks. It is a no-nonsense place in the sense that the location is inner city, the dining area is... More

I started going to this place a little girl and i'm 44 yrs old now and they still have the best corn beef in town. I just wish there were open 24 hrs.

This place is a Cleveland landmark. It is open during the week for breakfast and lunch and the corned beef sandwiches are huge and delicious. The potatoe salad is also excellent. They have other items on their menu like burgers and pastrami and soups. This has an old-diner kind of a feel and the service is fast and friendly.

I was in Cleveland for an appointment at Cleveland Clinic. A young chap who worked there noticed I was from Texas and wanted to talk BBQ. We did and then I asked for a local recommendation. He told me Slyman's was nearby and was known for their corned beef. I went and the lady waiting my table upon hearing it... More

We used to make special trips here just for sandwiches that were so large I'd take half home for my husband's lunch the next day. Can't get near the place on St. Patrick's Day. Hot pastrami is by far the best in town. Been loving it for years. Speedy service (appreciated on lunch hours) and good food - what else... More

We stopped here on way back from Canada, and I'm glad I chose this place (based on trip advisor reviews). Excellent corned beef sandwiches at a great value.

We went here after reading that Rachel Ray and President Bush have eaten here. The hostess told us that the traditional Corned Beef sandwich was the most popular. We tried the Reuben (corned beef on buttered, grilled bread, with Swiss cheese) and the regular Corned Beef sandwich, and the Reuben was tastier. It came out to around $11.75 for the... More
