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

This was our first time eating breakfast here, the service and the food were great. We will definitely be back and recommend to friends. Thanks for a great experience.

NOTE – NO SPECIALS: As of writing this review I found out the specials on the website are no longer valid and none have replaced them so if you see something on the website, be sure to call first.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.

Rivals is our favorite sports bar around the area. We have been there multiple times and are never disappointed. Sometimes there is only 1 bartender in a bar, which could be frustrating. If you are going and you like wings please order a few different kinds ! We have never had a a disappointment with them !!

Used to come here a lot when I lived in Cleveland. While back for a visit, I had a craving for pierogis which I knew they had on their menu. A friend and I went on a week night near the end of happy hour. The place was crowded, but remember, this is a bar as well as a restaurant... More
