We attended a conference in Cleveland and ate here 3 times--twice for lunch and once for dinner. Food was pub type menu, nicely presented and very reasonable. Service was quick and staff was pleasant. Good basic food with lots of tv's to watch!

Was in town and needed to find a night night dining establishment near the Radisson. This one fit the bill. Sort of a dead Monday night around 9:00 pm, place was nearly empty. Plenty of tables and a good sized bar area. TVs sufficient to cover most sporting event busy times. Bar service was professional, but not terribly friendly. Food selections were numerous ranging from typical bar appetizers, several salads, burgers, and sandwiches to several larger entrees. Draft beer selections were somewhat limited, generally domestic lagers or pilsners, but I found a Sam Adams Octoberfest which suited me fine. Order a Cajun Burger, it was cooked as ordered, but the spices were not evident, a bit of a letdown. None the less, it was sufficient and I probably didn't need a spicy burger late at night anyway.
Conveniently located to the Basketball arena and Indians Stadium and a short walk from the casino. There were several other pubs on the street, but this one looked the cleanest and had a nicer crowd.

We were in Cleveland for less than 48 hours and actually went to the Winking Lizard twice! Once around 10 p.m on Friday and once before the Indians game on Saturday afternoon. Yes, it was crazy on Saturday before game along with all the college football on Tv. However, the service was great, the beers extensive and the food phenomenal for a sports bar. From wings to flatbreads to burgers and even their salads (try the spinach cajun chicken!!!) were fantastic and the prices were great too.
The place is huge so even when there was a huge crowd there is usually a very minimal wait. If you want a great selection at super prices with friendly competent service, don't miss the Lizard in Cleveland!!!
