Slyman's was recommended to me & my family as we were traveling through Cleveland on a cross-country trip. We had a wonderful lunch here - my husband loved his HUGE pastrami sandwich, and I tried to eat most of my roast beef sandwich! They're so huge, I actually asked our waitress HOW one eats them!! haha!! Our daughter loved her... More

You know that this place will be good when you see the line out front on a weekday and consider the neighborhood where they are located. Sandwiches are piled so high with excellent corned beef that you would swear that you are in a NYC deli. Highly recommended!

This is a Cleveland staple and the corned beef is just as good in 2012 as it was in 1978 on my first visit.

If you're looking for the largest corned beef sandwich ever created, this is your place. It's a typical deli with close tables, no ambiance, loud neighbors. BUT, if you're looking for absolutely outstanding corned beef this IS the place. Just wish it were closer to home!!

Monster sandwiches; incredible piles of lean corned beef on fresh bread - enough for two meals! I prefer the Reuben, but first-timers MUST have a corned beef sandwich! Crowded at lunch time, but the line moves fast.

There's really nothing more I can say...it really is the best. The corned beef is so tender and flavorful. The sandwiches are HUGE!!! They put so much meat on a sandwich you could easily make 2 or 3 sandwiches out of it. The only downsides to this place are very small dining room, you're better off waiting at the counter... More

the sandwiches are very large (always enough for 2 or more) of flavorful meat (corned beef, pastrami), fresh (rye) bread, good pickles, fresh cheese. service is quick. open for breakfast and lunch and worth the wait (if you have to)..great view of a normal city street in a normal city neighborhood

Just got back from having lunch at Slyman's. The corned beef sandwiches there are huge and delicious --- undoubtedly the best in Cleveland and a rival for any I have had anywhere. You don't go there for the neighborhood or the ambiance, just the food, particularly the corned beef - and it's well worth it. Get there early to get... More

Awesome food and old school atmosphere. Huge portions and obvious quality. A little pricey, but you gt what you pay for. We will be back.
