The menu didn’t offer much. Very little to chose from. The food was decent. They seemed to be very short staffed because the service wasn’t the best. It took forever to get things requested. Like condiments and drinks.

Service was really bad, waited for over 20 minutes for our reserved table when there were tons of open tables. Waited 10 minutes at our table for our server. Food came out fast at least.

Great Food, a little loud with crowds before games and concerts, but that was to be expected. Service was very slow, but that has been the norm with restaurants recently given the economy. Beer was very expensive.

Super excited about reservation but must be honest and say I was a bit disappointed with Cajun tacos. No flavor at all. Could only taste corn tortilla. Couldn’t even finish one. My girlfriend southwest chicken was just ok. Service was great though!

It took almost 15 minutes for the waitress to even come to our table and acknowledge we were there. Took another 15 minutes to get drinks (water & soda) and put in our food order. Food came out 20ish minutes later. Nothing spectacular and a little on the pricy side. Waitress was a little short with us and seems bothered w any questions. I don’t think we’ll be back.

It took a while to get the waitress to take our order and it wasn't very busy when we arrived. We we also charged a 20% large group fee with six people.
In addition, we were there for the Indians game and didn't get our food until after 5p. We never got the 50% off and had two starters and a coke for $43. Not a very good deal in my opinion.

Overall our experience was good, we went to have a quick bite before the Indians game. I have to give the most props to the receptionist Brie (hopefully I spelled her name right) who made sure we had a table as I corresponded we ran late due to traffic. The service was good, the food was also a good value as they have certain items half off during game days and the iced tea was very good. The atmosphere is that of an ultra modern sports bar, and you can walk right out the door across from Victory Field after you’ve parked in the hotel valet. I recommend High Velocity.

We tried this before an Indians game- based upon email advertising. We booked a reservation (unnecessary as they were NOT overly crowded) and arrived on time.

We were given a choice of table or booth and chose a table. Server was quick at first, too quick. We hadn't had time to look at menus and he was ready for our order. After a bit he relaxed, but relaxed too much and became inattentive.

We inquired about the promo that had been previous emailed regarding a discount for proof of vaccination. He promised to go check, but never did report back to us.

As a result, we ordered just an appetizer of nachos until we decided if we wanted more. There was no need for more. the basket of loaded nachos was enough to fill my wife and both with leftovers! I am a big guy and a normally big eater, but this defeated me! I love getting a value and if this is the norm for portions, then I will be a big fan.

However, we did have to wait nearly 10 minutes for a box for the remainder and another 8-10 for the check after that- not ideal when you have someplace to be.

This is a restaurant in a really nice hotel. The expectation was that the food would be good. It was not. My husband’ burger was cold. My daughter has salmon and it wasn’t good. I had quesadilla and it was mediocre. We had three adults and 2 3 year olds and our bill was over $200. Very disappointed.

Pretzels were greasy and unimpressive in taste, though they were hot and looked like they would be delicious. They were not bad, just not great. Beer cheese was the same. Not bad, but not something I would order again either. The description of the shrimp tacos sounded amazing, and they looked pretty good, but again the reality was less impressive. I would not return based on food or atmosphere. Wait staff was friendly, and we had prompt service in the beginning, though we waited awhile after finishing our meal for our server to show back up so we could request check.

Good food, though more of a true sports bar than a upscale sit down restaurant. Bar menu options for food, but was very good quality and prices you would expect for a JW Marriott.

JW has changed the menu again. Limited salads. Limited apps. Limited sandwiches? How does a “bacon-wrapped hot dog” make it onto the menu at a JW? This place is okay if you want a beer—that’s about all it’s good for. Service was bad too. Hardly saw our server, who played the “I don’t see you” game. I went to hostess stand to chase down desserts and the check.

Great place right inside JW Marriott. Variety of drinks including their signature cocktails and local beer Sun King. I had their tacos which were excellent and my husband enjoyed his tenderloin. The restaurant lay out was perfect and spread out and even had outdoor seating. We will definitely be back soon. Thank you.

The only complaint I have is they started to clean our section . Idon’t think they should be doing that with a broom and a spray bottle while I’m still eating right.
