Had to wait on a Sat evening 1/2 hour which isn't really bad. The restaurant was very noisy as people gathered for OSU game. Music we were told would be turned down once the game started but that didn't happen. Had a Rueben that was sliced very thin, meat was dry and the bread was soggy from so much sauerkraut.... More

We stopped there on a Saturday night, after 7 p.m. We had a short wait for a table, but it was worth it. Husband had a huge Corned Beef on Marble Rye, and more fries then most servings. I had butterified shrimp and a cup of beer cheese soup. The soup was on their fall/ winter specials, but no problem... More

Was here this past weekend. The food was horrible. Ordered a burger medium rare with fries. Came out well done and dripping with bbq sauce. The fries were ice cold. Our entire tables food was cold and horrible. Will not be going back.

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
