Great Food!

Had a fantastic meal at Nighttown. It has a fantastic pub, cozy atmosphere. The staff were nice, but rather stressed.

Have dined at Nighttown 25+ times over the past 20 years. Consistently delicious food and good service. The Dublin Lawyer is a must have. Saturday dinner has jazz band playing, select jazz bands from all over play at Nighttown throughout the year. Great atmosphere.

I had not been to Nighttown in years but I decided to go during the 50th anniversary month and I was not disappointed, I went to their anniversary celebration and had a great time. I had the Dublin Lawyer and it was excellent. It was fresh and very filling. My friend and I sat next to two fun couples and... More

We were a party of five celebrating a birthday. Everything was delicious from the appetizers to the entrees and dessert. Our table ordered the following: crab cake, brick shrimp, mussels, chicken caprese, Delmonico steak, lamb stew and a lobster dish. We finished with a chocolate bread pudding that was to die for. We also had 3 glasses of wine. The... More

I don't go for the music although it is reputedly great. I go for Irish grub: Dublin lawyer, Guinness, sole, potatoes. There are two bars so getting a drink is never a problem. In the summer the outdoor patio is wonderful; in winter indoors is cozy, Victorian in decor, and warming on a frigid Cleveland day. Great place for a... More

This is a great place with great food. It's also a great live music venue. It's an ideal place for date night.

Nighttown is a local institution, having just celebrated its 50th anniversary this month. It is a favorite among Cleveland Heights and Shaker Heights residents as well as jazz aficionados. The restaurant is in a classic older building on Cedar Hill and consists of a series of rooms around a larger central room with a small music stage. The decor is... More

We went for dinner on a Friday night and ended up seeing an outstanding 8 piece blues band. Our waitress been waived the cover charge since we ordered dinner. The setting was vintage, quaint and intimate. A unique Cleveland experience!

Went on a Sunday for dinner. Was interested more in the menu then whether there was any entertainment. Was some nice music playing...no live music ever while we were there. Had the four of us in a cramped room to the right of the stage. Chairs practically butted up against one another in the aisle, which normally doesn't bother me... More

Came here with my family for Thanksgiving dinner. The turkey dinner was tasty and the service was pretty good. I liked the atmosphere as well. It would have been nice to come here when there was live music - so will have to come back. I would recommend checking this place out.
