This restaurant is on the bay so you can set inside or outside on the patio and enjoy the water views. I was there for lunch on Nov 10th which is off season for Lake Erie restaurants. It was not busy at all. I had the pretzels with beer cheese and fish tacos for the first time ever. They were... More

The are several cleats restaurants in Ohio, and I have stopped in at least 4 of them. Their food is always good and this one that holds true as well. They really need to add some help and/or consider some training for the current help. Service is very slow. Staff is polite, but need some efficiency training. Shouldn't take 20... More

We tend to frequent here in the winter when the locals specials are out. Great prime rib dinner and wings. If not directly at the bar, service can be hit or miss. They run all you can eat white fish for Lent. Fish is usually dripping in grease because they are rush but just remove the breading and eat away

This restaurant is up and down with the quality of food they serve. During the heavy summer months the quality goes down probably due to the volume of people.

We had a great view and awesome service. The food was ok, but the drinks were awesome. Maybe have more drinks specials on Friday afternoons. It was a marvelous day for the sun and celebrating our Anniversary

My boyfriend and I decided to spend the day at Marblehead. Not sure where we wanted to eat we drove by Cleats and decided to stop in and give it a try. We sat outside and listened to music. The food was decent. The service was horrible. Very slow. Our waitress very seldom checked on us if we needed anything... More

This place has pretty decent food but the service here has gotten so bad I will never return again. If it were only this one time I may not have a problem with it. However this is the third visit in a row and just pathetic service. The staff looks miserable and it feels like I am a burden instead... More

Nice view of the water . We stopped in for an appetizer and a drink. Had the soft pretzels and they were great but the drinks were wanting.

Six of my family members, including myself, at here on Aug 10th for dinner. Although the food was average, the service was VERY slow. It was "49-cent Wing Night", so the majority of us ordered wings. The wings were more like chicken balls, doused in BBQ sauce and cold! Didn't even resemble a chicken wing! You get wings like this... More
