A word from Ferris Steakhouse & Tavern
In 1940, Adele and Ellis Ferris determined to share their hospitality with more than their family and friends. they wanted to reach out to serve the Cleveland community that had welcomed them with open arms. Adele and Ellis wanted to create a legacy for their children, grandchildren, and generations that would follow that would bring them pride all their days.
Starting out in Cleveland on Detroit Rd. Ferris Steak House became a favorite dining place for people from all across the city and outlying suburbs.
The Award-Winning Ferris Steak House continues to serve the highest quality steaks and chops available in Cleveland, with genuine warmth and friendly, prompt service. For many, Ferris Steak House has been the one restaurant where generations of the same family have dined. Where your grandparents or parents had their first date and where you may have yours.

  • "The menu seemed really great for this place but we were disappointed with our meals. French onion soup was pretty good and we had a great waitress. However, the entrees were not of great quality. The steak was tough and just served with you basic potato choice. Seemed more like a $15 steak. Just not high enough quality for the price."

  • "Foodwise, there was nothing remarkable nor unremarkable. The prime rib was good - as I would expect it. My wife said the mahi mahi was okay and its pilaf was better. We had calamari as an appetizer which was good as well but nothing extraordinary. The best part of the meal was a peppercorn sauce (at an extra $3) which was pretty amazing - something i would love to have for home. The greatest issue was the ambiance and pure feel of this steakhouse. It did not feel like a steakhouse (neither good nor a bad thing) but for $30 plates it should be presented more upscale casual than the restaurant is. It looks and feels more like a sports bar with large plasma TVs facing the dining area from the centralized bar. Not cozy at all."

  • "Food was good, but not exceptional and it should be exceptional for the prices. Service was very good. Nice place. But the food is just ok."

  • "Spent Saturday evening on at ferris. Outdoor patio was spacious and clean, only con was it was next to main road so noise level was high. Ordered the scallops as appetizer..tasted amazing, could've had 2 servings. Went with pork chops as entree, very tender and big portions, probably could get away with a single serving. Wife had the Delmonico steak, large portion again and well seasoned. Nice bar selection and great service. Recommended for a nice night out any day of week."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We weren't that impressed. It was a Saturday night and the place was empty, so apparently others weren't impressed either. The food was fine, just nothing that made us want to go back. We spent $150 on the two of us...usually when we do that we walk away raving about a great meal. This time we both said we'd probably never go back. The place has potential...maybe we just caught it on an off night."

  • "I have always liked family owned restaurants. I have been to Ferris' a number of times and have never been disappointed. The food is always done the way I requested and always delicious. The portions are very generous and the service is unquestionably good. This is to me is an upscale restaurant at a moderate price where your treated like family. Thank you Ferris' for giving my family and I the exceptional treatment on my anniversary and birthday. We will be back soon!!!!!"

  • "First of all I really like your new location. It is more convenient and more pleasant surrounding. Also good parking situation that set us in good moods. The barbeque ribs exceed my expectation and it was far better than Tic Toc on Clifton Blvd. The waitress was competent and friendly. Even the left-over I took home held good flavor the next day. We will be back soon. CONGRATULATIONS. PLEASE KEEP UP WITH GOOD WORK AND FOODS."

  • "We all ordered steaks; 3 Delmonico and 1 strip. 1 of the 3 Delmonico steaks was good. That's it! Ordered all Medium rare as recommended on the menu and only 1 steak was medium rare, again the only steak that was good. Way over priced for the meals we received! Server came by one time to check on our meals -- very soon after she brought them. At this point we really couldn't say the meal was good as we hadn't even started eating. So much for a Happy Birthday! While the restaurant comped us one steak dinner - It still wasn't enough to rectify the situation. Not even a Manager came over to apologize! He had been milling around all evening and checking up on other tables. So disappointed!"

  • "Arrived on time it was Memorial day weekend the dinning area was light with patrons, hostess stated oh let me see if were ready for you, we were seated a party of eight in a timely fashion, male waiter who stated he was an expert in angus seemed annoyed at the invitation of a few questions about the beef, despite my high expectations and talking the place up weeks before arrival, overall not incredibly impressed might return best I can do on this establishment "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Fifteen minutes after being seated, we had to request the hostess to send over a waiter to get a drink and appetizer order. Later we watched as the server walked around the room for a few minutes, unable to figure out which table had the appetizer. He offered our app to 2 Incorrect tables before he got close enough to us that we could flag him down. We still had no drinks, so we had to request them again. When the waiter returned to order our entrees I had to ask what the specials were, because they were never offered to us. On our previous visit, they lost our order in the kitchen and our waiter was generally absent. We thought it was a fluke, so we waited 6 months and gave them another try. We won't be returning to this restaurant."

The Piano dinner music was very relaxing and mellow. Looking forward to going back. Our waitress was very good and very friendly. There were five of us and was served with smiles."

  • "Overall good experience. Service was good and knowledgable. Food came out a little too close together between appetizers, salad, and entree. Steak that was ordered medium rare came back medium. Will know for next time to order rare. "

  • "Service was great but my steak was overcooked. In a restaurant that specializes in steaks it is inexcusable."

  • "I reserved a table for 730 i was seated immediately at arrival i had very high hopes. My service was terrible i felt like we were ignored we ordered our food around 8 (which was a long time) and then it took until 845 to get two steaks. we ordered a bottle of wine and were not even given the holder to keep it cool. our waiter would mumble comments when walking by it was by far the worst dining experience i have had in the area espiacally considering the high prices"

  • "First time dining at this establishment, we were all very happy with the service and the meal. This restruant is clean, service was very good and entertainment provided by a very talented gentleman playing piano. I would definitely recommend this to others and will go back. The only negative to this experience was that they were a little pricey, but worth paying the price to get away from chain resturants. Good for special occasions."

  • "I dined with my fiance for his birthday, intent on having a great time. Our first time visit. The clam chowder soup was marvelous. Our salads were pretty mundane, nothing special, but nothing awful. My fiance ordered a filet, and I ordered the almond crusted grouper. His steak was large and cooked to order. It tasted good, though it lacked seasoning. My grouper had an impressive size, but the taste was anything but fresh. In fact, it tasted as if it were quite old -- and it did have a fishy smell, which should have been a red flag. The fish had absolutely NO flavor -- except for the smell I wouldn't have known it was fish. I sent it back and my meal was comped. Quite a disappointment that will likely keep us from returning."
