“Don't judge a book by its cover!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

As the result of business travel, I spend a fair amount of time in Cleveland on the East side, and I have driven past this place perhaps a thousand times, and it never crossed my mind to check it out.

A project team I was on invited me out for happy hour, and this is the place they chose. I really was prepared for a dark, smoky old bar, and upon stepping inside I was completely astonished!

Nice open floor plan, with enough room to play cornhole inside, gleaming polished floor -- wow!

I only had a beer as had other plans for dinner, however staff was attentive, friendly, and made us aware of the specials.

Now that I have read the other reviews, and seen the interior for myself, I will be back next trip, which is already scheduled for next month!

“Clever name hosting good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

The owner of this restaurant must be a die-hard Cleveland sports fan. You will realize this when you break down the name BR (Browns) IND (Indians) ALIERS (Cavaliers). Put it all together and you get "Brindaliers". As you might then imagine, the overall theme of this place is sports. There are multiple screens hanging and one huge screen so that fans won't miss one minute of whatever sports action is taking place. So the place is a little noisy, but that kinda adds to the fun. Located in the rear corner of a strip shopping plaza, Brindaliers is not very visible from the street. But there is plenty of parking in the back, once you find the place. I had been wanting to try this restaurant so we headed there on a Sunday afternoon and found it fairly busy but we were still seated immediately. The menu has a large variety of sandwiches, salads, burgers and some pricier dinner options. There were also several specials for the day, at very reasonable prices. We tried the chicken parm sandwich as well as the fish and chips. Both were tasty with generous portions. We had great service from a young man who was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We left the restaurant feeling very satisfied with the food, service and prices. We will definitely dine here again.

“Suprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Ordered the flat iron steak and it was melt in your mouth delicious. The side salad with the steak was huge with lots of yummy toppings and the vegetable medley cooked perfectly with the right amount of seasoning. This is not your average bar food. Try the hot spiked cider....amazing
