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

Ordered off the lunch menu. Cup of Chicken Toodle Soup and Chef Salad was very good. We asked for extra salad dressing and the server gladly accommodated.

Just ate lunch at Rivals. They have a good assortment of different beers, if looking for that. I ordered a bison burger, which was very good. Cooked exactly how I wanted it. Sweet Potato fries much better than the normal fries. I will definitely go there again.

We eat here 1 to 2 times a week and are never disappointed in the food or service. They change their menu seasonally, so there is always something new to try. Salmon and tilapia are excellent. We enjoy the patio seating the most. If you are in the area you must stop by.

This place was excellent. There was an insert in our hotel directory so we gave it a shot and were very pleased. The food was great and the waitstaff of very friendly and helpful. They gave us a 10% discount for mentioning the hotel insert. Not sure if we will get this way again but if we do we will... More
