Very good spot. Menu is pleasingly limited and all very good. Guac and queso especially good. The reservation piece did not work well, OT said they had spots available, when we got there they said OT was wrong and they had an hour wait, then we were at a table in 5 minutes. All very confusing, but worked out just fine. More

The menu and daily specials are creative, well prepared, and presented. Its definitely worth the drive as this is so much more than a typical hotel restaurant. More

This is a small restaurant with quiet and intimate atmosphere. The lobster bisque was outstanding and the entrees were good. The menu is not large but certainly enough choices for a variety of tastes. Service was average because the bartender was our server, despite that we were seated at a table near the front of the restaurant. The server did a good job, was very polite and professional but he was wearing multiple hats that not including tending bar. I would recommend and will return in the future. More

The drinks and desserts were amazing (I had the black forest Manhattan and chocolate martini), but our food was just fine (I had the french onion grilled cheese, which I had been looking forward to trying but found to be rather plain). Our waitress was also excellent, very attentive and accommodating to our time restraints. I would definitely go again for the drinks, desserts, and service, but will probably not go back for a meal.

This is a very nice restaurant located in the JACK Thistledown Racino (Casino) so must be over 21 to enter. There is very nice ambiance in the entire dining area away from the casino hub bub. The menu item we have tried have been excellent. Particularly the lemon chicken and the bacon burger. highly recommend, but don't go if you are in a rush, as most places these days, understaffed and patience is required :) More

I love the live music on Friday nights. This was my first time using OpenTable. Once at the restaurant it was not clear who to see about my reservation but the owner soon approached us. When I told him I had reserved a table he looked rather confused at first. Once I mentioned I made my reservation online he took us to a table immediately. I'm not sure if they actually received the reservation or he just recalled it once I mentioned, but either way we were seated quickly and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening. I will definitely be going back soon. More

Discover Cleveland West

Cleveland is home to many treats and wonders, but right against Lake Erie, you can find the neighborhood known as “Cleveland West.” Home to many waterfront opportunities, this is an excellent place to explore the Bavarian heritage that is pervasive throughout the city. There are numerous places to eat foods of every variety, but if you want the Cleveland experience, then you need to consider Polish and German eateries. Pierogi (delightful cheese-stuffed dumplings), corned beef and bratwurst sandwiches are specialties of the region. If you're looking for a more American touch, you can enjoy original pizza bagels and a range of beers that blend history and tradition with American innovation.
