Why Did We Wait

We heard they were really expensive. We heard it was over priced and not worth it. We stayed away. What a mistake! Wonderful menu! We tried the small starters at the Happy Hour and that made us want to go back! Service is great! Shelby spoiled us. The entire menu is very reasonably price and... read more

The place is located in an old indoor/outdoor mall that has carpet, it feels oddly out of place to find a nice fine dining restaurant. The service was ok, the server kept forgetting drinks, but the food was great. Got the duck breast which was perfectly cooked. The mac-n-cheese was quite good as well.

Best place in Cleveland Tn to eat, Food is always good and if your thinking of something new than they have a wild game platter that is very good also, The steaks are to die for!

The atmosphere is great, we sat at the bar and had excellent service from a new server/bar tender and a shift changing server. But great service. The shrimp mac and cheese was excellent. We stubble do on it but found a gem!

I have heard so many wonderful things about this place and finely made it! We headed over for the happy hour specials. Very nice lite menu. My husband got the Spice Crusted Tune and it really was fresh! The bartender recommended the Shredded Brisket Tacos and they were just right! We will be back to try the dinner menu! Our... More

I go to the Bald Headed Bistro on a regular basis. The atmosphere is like no other in the area. It's rustic but warm and inviting. They have everything from wood fire pizza to gourmet burgers to steaks to elk. Their servers are top of the line and the bartenders are mix masters. It's always worth the trip.

This is definitely a great place to go on a special date or anniversary. Expensive, but definitely worth the price. Cozy atmosphere, western motif (think Jackson Hole) and food you won't find anywhere else in this area. One of my top four Cleveland restaurants. (includes 5 Points Square, Roma, and Catch).

The food and service are always top notch at the Bistro. Interesting and tasty selections even on the bar menu. Floor plan layout keeps each area intimate. Wait staff very knowledgeable on the menu.
