    Went after a comedy show, got seated right away. Ordered, waited forever for our appetizer, but ended Up not getting placed, when the food was dropped off, we mentioned it to the person who dropped It off, we got it after our meal. We were compensated.

    The service was slow. The apps were good the entrees were not. Dissappointing. I came with three other girls and we all work in a restaurant n understand how it is when busy n always give leeway. But our server barely came around us. Had a problem with an entree n she was shocked that we said the linguini was like paste. It didnt even look like pasta. She didnt take it away just said let me see what I can do. Then when as we waited 20 min after being done for the check she did take off the meal but we hadn't seen her for 40 min after we had gotten the food delivered. Never again n wouldn't recommend it !! It was the worst place I've been in a very long time!

    The food was wonderful! Much better than I expected. The burgers were huge and very flavorful. The loaded baked potato pizza was unique and quite enjoyable. The beer cheese fondue and pub chips were flavorful and a must have, although the pretzel pieces were dry and not very good. Overall the experience was pleasant, service good and atmosphere fun. It was a bit loud for good table conversation if you are too close to the lanes though. Not a deal breaker if you know what to expect. Great place to bring a group!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/16/2013
    When we arrived the hostess tried to seat us a small round high-top table and rectangular high-top table pushed together in the bar (for 8 people). When we said we wanted to sit in the restaurant at normal size chairs with backs she responded rudely that we made our reservation online and did make any special requests. I would not consider it a special request to be seated in the restaurant area at regular height seating. She then told us we could cram all 8 of us into a round booth that would barely seat 6 but and we could only have it for 1 hour. We took that and crammed in but no one waited on us or even brought us menus for over 10 minutes. Our server was very good once we changed tables again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/2/2013
    We went there for Cleveland Restaurant week so we went in knowing the what our menu was going to look like. When we arrived we placed our order for the appetizer, entree, & desert as listed on the Restaurant Week menu. We received our appetizers, which were delicious, and were told they only had one entree choice left(if was only 6pm and not that busy) so we all ate chicken. The chicken was good, but if you were expecting short ribs-disappointing. The smashed potatoes (yukon gold + sweet potatoes) where so heavily seasoned with rosemary they were inedible.Then came the desert and you guessed it...the desert was something completely different then what was listed on the menu. Good, just not what we expected. Overall, disappointing.

    Fun spot, and the bowling alley is a plus. Not exactly a "foodie" joint, but the food's not bad. Very surprised that they were out of 2 of the 3 items for restaurant week on the second night, bad planning on their part, but they did make up for it by letting us order off the regular menu at restaurant week pricing. I'd go again.

    Well what do I say, This was a to be a great dinner to celebrate a birthday for a family member. Upon arrival, we were sat at two oval tables pushed together basically infront of the front door! While the shape of the tables made for a difficult seating and for us all to be together the lacation of the table was very unappealling! While the restaurant was fun the service was deplorable and the food mediocre! Definatly not the place for food unless your drinking beer and want bar food! Had probably the worst martini Ive ever experinced and when brought to the servers attention, I recieved an unenthuastic " Oh Im Sorry" and thats as far as it went.Would never go back for a special celebration, but would be fun with a small group

    Corner Alley and 4th Street Bar and Grill is a really great place to spend an evening, especially on a weekend. The menu is top-notch, the food is delicious and expertly prepared, and the prices are reasonable. When you order a burger done medium, it comes out with some pink inside, not cooked to shoe leather. The pizzas are really wonderful, as well. And after dinner, you can head over the bowling alley and bowl a few games! The drinks are good, the bar prices are very affordable (Pabst on draft!) and overall, a very awesome experience. The staff really do an excellent job of serving you and making sure you have a great time! It's a great place, right in the heart of the action in downtown Cleveland!

    We took our grandsons here to celebrate a birthday and a great time was had by all. Bowling was a hoot, the boys loved to personalized cartoons on the screen, and the waitress and bowling host went out of their way to make sure everyone had a great time. We were the only family group present on a Friday evening, but that didn't hinder our good time one little bit. Food is typical - not great, but serviceable and acceptable to kids - which was the point for us!

    Great food and service. I have never seen a place like this. Bowling with a cool restaurant and bar. It's a spin on what you think you know about bowling alleys. They take it to the next level. We were here for lunch but will certainly come back for a dinner or drinks and bowling. Looks like a blast could be had at night. Can't wait.

We came down for the Marines Week activities and to check out the casino. We made our reservation and wandered over. It was pretty bustling downtown, so I am glad we planned ahead. Our server was attentive, food quick and very tasty! I recommend this place for anyone looking for a diverse menu and a laid back fun casual meal. We will definitely be back.
