Great ambience, great food, catered to service, unique menu. A bit pricey, but a great value. Very "different" appitizers, menu items and decor. Food prepared exactly as ordered, sign up and get a free dessert on your birthday or anniversary. Live entertainment if you go after 5:30 pm. Great holiday buffet (when available).

A 4 to 5 star experience and menu await diners to this restaurant in an unassuming strip center. The decor is top notch and similar to Jackson Hole steak restaurants, with furnishings and ambiance to make you feel like you are 1,500 miles further west. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, food and drinks giving top shelf... More

We’ve had dinner at various restaurants in Cleveland - when we visit our grandson who is in college at Lee. In my opinion the Bald Headed Bistro is the best restaurant in town. The steaks are great - comparable to Ruth Chris and Morton's. I particularly like the filet minion - it is thick, crusty, juicy, and tasty. My grandson... More

First time to Bald Headed Bistro and will go back! Was in town (from Knoxville) for a business event and wanted to celebrate a birthday with a special dinner that evening. We went to absolutely the right place! The food was excellent and the service impeccable. The steaks were cooked exactly to order and the bread pudding was to die... More

The Bald Headed Bistro is a fine dining restaurant in Cleveland, TN. The atmosphere and service is very nice but the food is overpriced for what you get. We recently dined there with reservations to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant was empty yet they seated us by the restrooms and back door. We both ordered steaks and they were good... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 46th wedding anniversary meal at this restaurant! We shared lobster crab cakes. They were so light and delicious. Then I had butternut squash soup that had goat cheese crotons with it. Very good tasting soup. I then had grouper in sauce with root vegetables. The food was great but we would have liked for our food... More

The filet is one of the best around! I always get the Oscar with it and it has never let me down. The have a Bake shop doughnut bread pudding that is not like any thing I have ever had. A little pricey but great for a special occasion.

Live music was a nice attraction, the service was adequate, the food was disappointing for the price. I've had much better fillet mignonette for half the cost. I'd heard rave reviews on the steaks, so I was expecting much more. Not sure I'll go back anytime soon.
