    This restaurant always comes through. If it is a lively bar scene you crave, step in and enjoy. If on the other hand you would like a fairly quiet dinner with someone special, you will be well taken care of. The food is always consistently good with portions that satisfy. As the title suggests, "Don't be surprised" if this restaurant becomes one of your favorite places for an after work drink, or a night out with your favorite person.

    First time going we went to celebrate an anniversary. Food, drink, and service was fantastic. They put us in a corner to enjoy ourselves for a night out by ourselves for once. Staff was very knowledgeable and knew quite a bit about the actual history of the history of the Pomeroy house. We order the prix fixe menu (restaurant week selection) and the crab cakes, flat iron oscar, and the dessert were amazing. Definitely recommend for a night out to just relax and enjoy the company you go with.

    First time at Don's Pomeroy House and I'm not complaining. We participate in the Cleveland Restaurant Week menu which was delightful. Every dish was great and the service was excellent. The portions are large and quite filling. Overall, I would say it was a nice find and experience! They were also so great about remembering my food allergies!

    We moved to Strongsville, Ohio about two months ago. We wanted to go to a restaurant on the nicer side to celebrate our anniversary. We asked several people, neighbors and other people we made met and all suggested Don's. We made our reservation and our visit did not disappoint. Kevin was our server. He had a relaxed demeanor, was knowledgeable of the menu and timed the delivery of the different courses with precision. I had a chicken and chorizo gumbo (offered as a special that evening) that was incredible. The Ohio Pork Chop was tender and moist. My wife has the lobster that she said was just OK. Still, an terrific meal overall and though a bit pricey was definitely worth the money. With nice portion sizes we did not leave hungry.

    A group of five us went for birthday celebration early on a Saturday. Our server was great and service matched it. There was a large group close to us that had two small children who were a little noisier than what we would have preferred. It was Restaurant Week so four of the five of us ordered from that menu and were very pleased with all of our meals. I thought it was a great value for the price and they certainly didn't skimp on portions--the pork chops offered were huge.

    I have been to Don's Pomeroy House at least a half dozen times. Brought my wife, mother, and daughter there this past week. To a person only excellent comments. I go there frequently on Friday evenings after my wife has had a challenging week at her job for the quiet and the excellent food. It's just a great place to eat.

    What a great experience. This was our first time at the restaurant and we were not disappointed. The experience was exceptional. From the moment we entered till we left everyone went above and beyond. Food was excellent and the menu had many great options. The spotlight wine which was recommended by our waiter was the perfect complement to our meal. Service was outstanding! Can't wait to visit again soon.

    The food was ok, but not worth the price. The ambience was ok, but tables were way too close together for such a small dining room. It was very loud when we went. The server had no personality and didn't even smile each time she came to the table. I will not be back.
