Have been going here for 40 + years. The place is off more than a step or two. We had a good time, but the menu is not the same cooking. Polka band was fun. Beer was good. Slivovitz had more than I should. Hope the return to their glory.

Our last visit to Sterle's was 2 years ago and everything was wonderful. Our visit on this trip to Cleveland was disappointing. The restaurant maintained its charm and ambiance and the live music helped set the tone.We were seated promptly by a very pleasant young lady - and that was the best service we experienced. Our waitress was distracted every... More

I went here with my daughters since we were on our way through town and we had seen it on tv. Had to track down a waitress after waiting for 10 min to be noticed. She then provided service so cold and surly that I wanted to ask her if she had a personal vendetta against Lithuanians. The food was... More

It is clearly more and more difficult to find a good polka band and dinner, but not so in Cleveland! Frank Sterle's Slovenian Country House is the place to be, not only on the weekend, but any evening. The wiener schnitzel is tender and there is a lot of it. The Sterle's schnitzel is made with pork and in a... More

I live in Cleveland and am proud of our many ethic restaurants! I especially enjoy Eastern European "Soul Food". Polish, Slovak, Slovenian, Czech cuisine-you name it-I love it! I have been to Sterle's Slovenian Country House a couple of times within the past year for ethnic celebrations. The place was packed, the accordions were going great guns, the bar was... More

My husband and I went to lunch today (Sunday). Atmosphere is great. Wait staff was ok. Our waitress didn't know the vegetable of the day and didn't offer to check and see what it was, which was kinda weird to me, but oh well. I got perogies and my husband got paprikash. Both were great. Perogie were served with veggies... More

Great Slovenian atmosphere with décor consisting of dark wood walls and beams with stained glass windows, staff speaking in accent, live band, and dancing. My friend danced with the waitress. As far as the food, my friend and partner had one of the schnitzels. I went the less traditional route and got salmon although it still had a Slovenian flair... More

It was a really great experience. The food was delicious and the portions were more than enough. Everybody in our party of 8 had a to-go-box and was very satisfied. We had a great time and we might have had the best wait person in the building - Jemail. Extremely polite, knowledgeable and very friendly. He took care of our... More

We went on a Saturday night and enjoyed some great live polka music and several patrons were up and dancing. It was loud if you were intent on having dep conversations but otherwise quite fun. The beer, though home brewed, was nothing spectacular, and the food was average but comforting. Salads and desserts subpar but my expectations were low. Overall... More
