We went for dinner and were seated in the bar area. The bartender, Jason, was also our server and did a really good job. We ordered the marinated chicken and rice and the shaved prime rib sandwich with onion rings. We both added the salad bar which was actually pretty encompassing and very filling. The chicken was very good and... More

The title pretty much speaks for itself. Jenkins was always the best local eatery in Cleveland. The atmosphere was awesome, the location was ideal, the service was unbeatable.......Then they moved! I've been to the new location maybe twice? While the good tastes the same, it's a little more expensive, the atmosphere is gone, the location isn't so great, and the... More

This used to be "The Place" in Cleveland. Well, they moved to nicer digs, but clearly forgot to take the old winning recipes with them. The service was very confused, after being seated for at least 15 minutes, a girl asked if we had had a drink order taken then, she stood talking to us clutching a filthy dishrag while... More

The salad bar at the new Jenkins location is wonderful! It's not Ruby Tuesday's, but it is close. There was a decent selection, it is well kept, and my family enjoyed it. The menu has a good variety from which to select. There are great sandwiches, steak, and chicken dishes.

The details of the listing show Jenkins Deli at 88 Mouse Creek Rd. Several months ago, they moved several miles into a brand new location. It now has more room and outside seating which was unavailable at the old location. The inside is still an eclectic mix of posters, sign, and memorabilia. They even have added a train that goes...

Jenkins restaurant had changed locations since I had last been to Cleveland so I decided to give it a retry. I ordered what turned out to be an insanely sweet tea. How restaurants can make a bad pot of tea after so many years of being open is just crazy to me. I I ordered the American kobe beef burger... More

My husband and I have eaten here twice. Both times he has had the Prime Rib and both times he had to explain to the waitstaff that it wasn't a steak. They were totally confused when he ordered it, even though it is on the regular menu and one night it was a "special". The first time I had the... More

My family and I have been eating at Jenkins Deli since they first opened in the old Cleveland Mall. The new restaurant has a great atmosphere with the same great food. Kay, Don, David and their staff make each visit better than the last.
