“Best for Corned Beef”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

A Cleveland landmark - if you are in the area there is no better place to go for Corned Beef than Slyman's Deli. They have been in business for many, many years and one taste of their corned beef will tell you why. Excellent food.

“Prepare to wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We got there at lunch time...so we waited for a bit. Very small place. The tourists sit, the locals get it to go. Large portions. My 14 year old son and I shared a BBQ sandwich and had plenty. The décor is outdated and no one cares, it's about the food!

“Best Corned Beef Around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We used to live in the area so when we come back to visit we always make this a must stop trip.

Its nice that the same family still greets you and runs the place after all of these years. The food is very good and they give you lots of it.

Good quality at a fair price. We recommend it.

“Best Corned Beef in Cleveland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

A very small, noisy restaurant with outstanding, very lean corned beef. Don’t be distraught if there is a line around the block…it is probably for takeout and not seating. But even if it is for the restaurant, it is worth the wait. It is a bit pricy for a sandwich but the sandwiches are HUGE. I usually remove about half the meat from the sandwich and have it for lunch the next day. They are now open on Saturdays which is wonderful since previously they were only open thru lunch on weekdays.
