Nothing really to make it stand out, but prices were good, and food was average to good, and it was worth just watching everyone wax poetic about LaBron's return.

If you are looking for typical sports bar with a wide range of beers, this is your place. The food is typical sports bar: nothing special. I've ordered the wings here a couple of times and have yet to be impressed. The boneless wings are dry and look like they came from the frozen food section at Sam's Club. The... More

Love the variety of beer - both bottled and on draft. Food was a bit of disappointment - the hamburgers were 'dry' - not juicy at all. Fries were either good or were poor excuses for French fries - very limp. Only condiments on the tables were B-B-Q sauce & catsup - you have to ask for mustard and mayo.... More

It's worth the visit and then some. From the parking attendant to the friendly staff this place stands out in the local area. Always packed to the gills the place has a vibe and is very very popular. What is outstanding is the massive choice of craft beers and local brews. Yes they still sell the kiddie beers but at... More

Our family of 4 ate here since it was within walking distance of our hotel. It's typical bar food, and we all enjoyed our meals. Our 8 year old loved the Mac and cheese wedges! They have free popcorn to munch on while you are waiting. Although it's a bar, the atmosphere is fine for a family. We were excited... More

Due to proximity to our hotel we decided to walk down the hill to the Lizard. In short it is pub food and the tap beer selection is very solid. I had the carribean wings with steak fries. The wings were good, not great and the fries were very good a bit better than most. For an appetizer we had... More

My husband and I recently vacationed in Cleveland to see the Indians sweep the Boston Red Sox (GO TRIBE!), and the Winking Lizard Tavern was right across from our hotel. The first night we got there, we didn't have a lot of time, and we'd heard good things about this place, so, we tried it. Lucky for us, it was... More

Went here with family and friends for drinks. The Winking Lizard has a great beer menu and an outstanding view of Cleveland's skyline. A very relaxing and enjoyable outing.
