NEAR DOWNTOWN - FRANK STERLE'S

I remember seeing this place when I delivered mail back in the early ‘70s, and a couple of the guys where I worked in the late 80s /early 90s would go there for lunch. There used to be a restaurant across the street called the Hofbrauhaus, pronounced HOFF BROW HOUSE which wasn’t opened at the time... read more

We had a throughly enjoyable evening here on Polka Night. Everyone in the place was smiling, laughing and totally enjoying themselves. The food was terrific and the atmosphere even better. The portions are crazy huge, enough for another meal. Definitely recommend Sterle's.

This restaurant has been here for many years. It is a very unique Cleveland landmark. The food is eastern European, it tastes really good.

My husband and I had a terrible experience here, and we won't be back. The problem seems to be that no one is managing the restaurant to make sure that everything runs smoothly. This has changed since the last time I was here. We had a dinner reservation for 7pm a couple days after Christmas. We waited and waited and... More

This is the second time I've been here, but tonight was polka night and it was the best. Food as always is incredible and portions are huge. Chicken paprikash is the best and any schnitzel is a good choice. Our waitress, Josie, rocks! Makes you feel like you are family. Suggest reservations for weekends.

Chose to go on Sat night during prime time dinner with no reservation, so we did have a wait of almost an hour- however, the bar is open, you can always have a beer or two while you wait, and watch the music and dancing! I heard some complaining from the people around us also waiting without reservations, but it's... More

This used to be a great place. The service is terrible (we asked for our food and the check several times before receiving it and the server was never around to take drink orders), and the food is definitely not as good as it was 5-10 years ago. Too bad

We were set near the piano player, when asked for another seat we were told it's not very loud. LIED! No one came to our table for 20 minutes. Ask for a beer came after salads 20 minutes later. No silverware and when it did come after salads it was plunked on table for us to sort with 2 napkins... More

We were told that reservations not necessary. When we got inside the restaurant hallway, it was rather crowded. We went to the hostess desk but had to wait for some body to attend. There seemed to be limited wait staff although plenty of tables empty. We were told they were trying to accommodate "Reservations" patrons first, and that it "didn't... More
