Great choices on the Easter menu and accommodating to changes.
Wonderful food and service. Friendly staff and a great place to eat.
I would never ever eat here again! First of all the place looks and smells old; serious remodel is needed. We started to leave after reviewing the menu but had already ordered drinks; should’ve left anyway. I had the pomeroy salad with added grilled shrimp. The menu stated greens but I received some dry iceberg lettuce, old strawberries, with mandarin oranges, and dried out red onions. I sent the salad back and ate the grilled shrimp, which actually tasted good. We had calamari that had a good flavor but was super tough and overcooked. My husband had the beer battered shrimp and cod meal which was the worst fried shrimp and fish I have ever had. First of all, there was way too much dough for the size of the shrimp, meaning that you could not tell that there were shrimp in there and both the fish and shrimp were served burnt. My husband rarely complains but even he could not finish the shrimp and fish and dared not eat the coleslaw, which looked disgusting. Furthermore, the waitress was nice but had a very flat affect and her perfume smelled loud and made my stomach hurt every time she came to our table. Worst lunch date ever. I would never eat here again! There are too many places in Cleveland with good eats to be disappointed. Sorry, not sorry.
Service was great. Food was delicious. And the steak with lobster special was a great price.
Food was amazing and service was great.
Since we were visiting from NC, we made reservations at the restaurant but were seated in a booth in the corner. The space was very tight and my husband was uncomfortable. The waiter Norman was a bit aloof and not friendly until the end of our dinner.
We had Soy glazed chicken which was absolutely outstanding. The meatloaf was a bit dry and lacking flavor. The Farrow Island Salmon was delicious but 3 ounce serving at best and I think it was $27; that was just wrong.
Mixed feelings on this restaurant.
Definitely one of the best seafood in town. Put it together with their filet mignon and man......delicious
Wonderful evening out with my husband. Perfect environment, amazing food and service!
The appetizers & dessert were extremely good as usual. However, our entrees weren't good at all. In the past she raved about the meatloaf, but the taste was bland, the carrots were burnt. My cod and vegetables had no seasoning at all
We were sat at a table that put one of us just 2 feet away from the next tables occupant and because of the angle of the seats there wasn’t a barrier either and there were lots of open tables being unused. Please consider this in the future but we still loved our meal,the service was excellent and so was everything else, without that one thing this was 5 stars across the board , it is hard these days and we all understood that, we appreciate you staying open and employing people too
I requested a reservation I was seated and was asked of what our drinks would be and waited 15 minutes and didn’t receive our drinks or put an order in for our food, while I watched a table get waited on and served as we waited 15 for our drinks.
Not as Good As I Remember, Pre-COVID !
Don's Bar Area Happy Hour has always been my go-to spot for a special event celebrations at a reasonable cost.
Food was uneven with the seafood chowder rating an excellent rating while stuffed mushrooms were cold and doughy. Herb unsalted butter for their excellent Ciabatta, was without herbs. (Server forgot our steamed Mussels order.)
Drinks were the same, Absolute Seabreeze was spot-on, while Long Island Iced Tea was served in a tiny glass, full of ice, that barely held 4-shots of spirits with no rom for mixer or splash of cola, leaving a bitter aftertaste from bottom-shelf liquors.
Staff-packed leftovers, but left out a couple of anticipated selections for next-day's lunch.
This place used to be the hot place to be. The food were used to be good. But instead of focusing on great dining, they focused on their bar. There’s a bunch of loud people always at this bar. It must be their biggest moneymaker, it doesn’t fit a nice restaurant.
Don's Lighthouse is one of the most consistent restaurants in our city. Consistently good food and good service.
Don's has very good seafood and steaks. the quality of the food and how it is prepared are essential to a great meal. Don's always serves great food.
Good food up until dessert. Warm apple pie was not warm and had way too much caramel sauce on it and the chocolate tort was dry. Service was good except for keeping the water refilled and it was very cold inside restaurant.
Fantastic food and great service. The inside is a bit dated but it perfect for the area.
THE HOSTESS WAS VERY FRIENDLY . OUR SERVER HOWEVER WAS NOT VERY PERSONABLE. SHE WAS EFFICIENT AND PLEASANT BUT SEEMED QUITE OFF HANDISH. THE FOOD PORTIONS VERY GOOD. I GOT THE STEAK AND LOBSTER SPECIAL. STEAK WAS GOOD BUT THE LOBSTER WAS REALLY MUSHY. IT IS USUALLY A BIT CRUSTY ON THE TOP. THE FLAVOR WAS MORE FISHY THAN NORMAL. HAVE ALWAYS ENJOYED OUR MEALS THERE SO WE WILL RETURN. THIS WAS A SUNDAY LATE AFTERNOON AND NOT VERY BUSY.
Still one of the best restaurants in Cleveland! Great seafood. Excellent wine list. Attentive and knowledgeable servers.
Great experience! It was my boyfriend's 55th birthday and we enjoyed a quiet dinner together - great service and food. Will recommend to everyone!
The atmosphere was great as well as the service! The food was amazing! We will definitely be going back there again!
Wonderful atmosphere. My meal experience was outstanding. Compliant with Covid safety standards.
We had a great dinner experience. I loved the COVID-19 precautions that were taken. The food tasted delicious and our server was polite, knowledgeable, and prompt.
The food was great.
The host was a bit rude, and we were put at a two top table against a wall. Felt like we were constantly in someone’s way.
Overall, will return, will just request a different seat.
Stumbled upon happy hour and was very happy with the happy hour menu! My husband and I had shrimp cocktail, mussels, and crab cakes and thought it all delicious. Our server was wonderful, attentive and friendly. Looking forward to returning again soon!!
Again this place never fails me, me and my husband loves this restaurant our favorite is the calimari the bessssssssst.❤
