What a great introduction to a family friendly atmosphere in a sports bar and grill. We enjoyed delicious food with leftovers for later! Staff was friendly and welcoming. Already recommending Rivals as a place to go for food and music and/or sports tv.

Went here with family members. The staff is always friendly and there is never an excessive wait for drinks or food. The food is good, nothing crazy mind blowing awesome but good. The environment is nice whether you are a group of adults to watch the game, a family with kids or a couple, it's all good. The only reason... More

On a recent visit one evening we sat on the patio....Great no smoking area!!! However the heavy metal music blaring rather ruined the atmosphere. Burgers great but sent back for being undercooked. Good beer selection. Our server was good but failed to do anything about the music. Have been here many times and never had that type of music loudly... More

NOTE – NO SPECIALS: As of writing this review I found out the specials on the website are no longer valid and none have replaced them so if you see something on the website, be sure to call first. My boyfriend and I arrive on a recent Sunday night at 5pm. There were very few diners so were seated immediately.... More

The buffalo chicken flat bread was the best I've had. There are televisions everywhere, if you enjoy sports and tasty food you have to give this a try.

Fun is in the air both inside and out. Whether you are seated at one of the multiple bars or are dining in the main restaurant area or out on the patio there is activity all around. Flat screen TV's hang from every angle and sports is the theme. The food is pretty good with a wide variety to choose... More

Family of six just visited and each one of us loved it! My husband enjoyed the Rajun Cajun and I had the Pineapple Express- both of these fish dishes were superb! The rice pilaf was perfection! My two oldest enjoyed burgers- my son's Assassin 51 was HUGE and filled his 16 year old appetite. My other son got their mild... More

My husband and I went to Rivals Sports Grille recently while in the Cleveland area visiting with family. His two daughters accompanied us. The girls stuck with appetizers (how young women subsist on so little food is a mystery to me), but I had the sundried pesto over cavatappi pasta, which was good. For the price, I would have liked...

Stopped in on a recent trips with friends. Menu was large and varied. I settled on a daily special of pork chop in Marsala sauce with roasted potatoes and grilled veggies. It was very good. The beer selection is large and varied. Will definitely return when in the area.
