A summer neighbor couldn't stop talking about the Monday deal -- $5 for a burger and a beer -- and how delicious the burger was. So we scanned the daily specials and circled Thursday on our calendar. A rack of ribs for under $12? More than a dozen sauces/rubs to choose from? We're in! I ordered mine with bourbon sauce,... More

I have been twice in the past week once for lunch with the girls and once for a family dinner. Service outside is not as good but you gain the scenery. I have tried some different items that were so-so - I guess I should just stick with the favorites.

Went to Cleat's for Fathers Day with all the family. We had a wonderful time. Our food was delicious, very generous portions, and the view is amazing. You can sit on one of 2 outdoor patios, right on Lake Erie, or sit inside. They have a bar side and a dining room. The place is quite large and pretty nice.... More

Cleats offers up a very diverse menu and great specials. They truly do offer something for everyone. Live entertainment most weekends, you'll be able to find any game that you want to watch. Good selection of beers on tap as well.

We enjoyed generous portions of perch and fries while enjoying the beautiful weather on their outdoor patio. Menu had other choices that sounded great, but we all were glad that we chose the delicious perch. Our understanding is that perch may not be available every day, but it was listed as a Friday special and we had it on a... More

Waiter didn't even great us until we were already seated for 15 minutes and had an attitude. After she took our order she disappeared for another 30 minutes before telling us that the kitchen had a 40 minute back up. I wish she would of told us about that before seating us or taking our order because we wanted to... More

We saw in the newspaper that Cleats had a Mother's day brunch buffet so we decided to give it a try. We had never been to Cleats before. I don't know how it escaped our attention all these years! We didn't have a reservation but they still accommodated us by seating us on the outside patio which was very nice... More

They have a decent selection and the quality of items is better than most of the tourist areas. It us a fun atmosphere with live music on the weekends in the summer, but if you are going anywhere half way decent in this tourist area on the weekends in the summer - embrace the crowd or light up your own...

I've been to Cleats many times and there's a reason I keep going back...it's a fun, relaxing atmosphere w/ good food and nice views. Having said that, I also go knowing that I'm not in a hurry because the service is not speedy. During past visits we've had to wait a little more than normal for our food but it... More

The waitress was rude and slow. I ordered a glass of Cabernet which was bad. I have tasted enough wine in my days to know the difference between good wine, bad wine and cheap wine, this was bad. I apologized and asked if I could have something else like a Merlot or Red Zinfandel, because I thought maybe this wine... More
