Was here 30 years ago when I lived in Cleveland and it’s still a trendy place to go. Great atmosphere and cool bar. Neat chandelier and our server for our table of Sox was top knotch. Very attentive and kind to everyone. Food was very good and they still have excellent burgers.

Took the family out for brunch. Food was great, service even better. With many good restaurants struggling to find help, Heck’s seems to have managed to overcome this obstacle. Stephanie (with a PH, not a double F) was our server. She was excellent and did it with a smile.

Waitress was wonderful. It was nice sitting outside. We didn't feel rushed. My friends had to send food back because the fish was mushy inside. My meal was great. The brussel sprouts and perogies were tastefully presented as well as the creame brulle.

Burgers are some of the best in the cit, if not any city. Very cool look and feel of the place. Cool area of town as well.

The entire vibe of the restaurant was lovely. The food was wonderful! They had options that worked for being gluten free which is important these days.

Food was creative and good, service was appropriately attentive for how busy it was. Don't expect to have much of a convo though - it's very LOUD.

Heck's is a great restaurant. We were there for Sunday brunch.

I had the wild hash and was a bit disappointed. It was basically cubed potatoes with eggs, a small amount of shredded chicken and too many greens on top.

My guest had eggs and sausage and was pleased with that.

A Virgin Mary was quite good, both with Heck's homemade mix and appropriate garnish.

Service was SUPERB--accurate, attentive and solicitous.

I love this restaurant! Friendly and attentive wait staff, everyone always greets you when you walk in and out, and are super accommodating! Best french onion soup in the city! Unexpected, and great ambience in the atrium with the tasteful spiral staircase. The food is great and consistent! One of my favorites!

Big disappointment. Visiting Ohio City and folks recommended Hecks. Perhaps they are short staffed, service was a bit slow --- but that is ok. The quality of the food was very poor. Ordered the peach capers salad --- peach was not ripe and cheese was hard. Fish tacos has no flavor. The tuna nachos also lacked flavor and had little tuna.... Perhaps restaurant had a bad day, but would not recommend....

Return visit for us and first time for our friends. Everyone's meal was excellent. Service was prompt, yet the server allowed us to linger for after-dinner conversation. Outside table was great on a pleasant summer evening. Highly recommended.

I love Heck's. It's one of my favorite brunch places in Cleveland. They have a great combination of traditional brunch dishes and new, innovative dishes. I also love their coffee - it tastes like Christmas. However, I feel like they've raised their prices in the last year or so, so the value isn't there for me as much as it once was. But a few extra dollars is worth it to support a local business.

In the mood for a juicy burger,I recalled my mother taking me & sister here as teens over 40 years ago. Just as good as I remember! New Ohio city location and/or Renovated (I'm not sure where historically) with fresh & simple decor, Jesse the 2nd day old bartender was a pleasure to chat with as a solo diner, shook a tasty, frothy rocks Margarita. The house cut fries crispy on the outside were delicious. I landed on The Market piled with braised short ribs & bearnaise, the perfect savory-rich combination to satisfy the burger itch craving. Heck's still holds title as one of the Lands best burger spots!

Hecks has been a favorite since the 1970's. The menus is always full of great choices including familiar favorites and new selections. The atmosphere is nice and for special occasions or casual meals. And don't forget the great coffee!

Everyone around us was served before us. We were there 20-30 min before. Waitress was oblivious to the timing it took to get drinks and meal. Kind, but no clue how to let a table know anything or personality. Came to ask how things were when clearly we hadn’t even had a chance to eat. Food was over cooked. No seasoning whatsoever. And so loud you couldn’t hear the person at the same table. Ambiance is unique. But food and service quality ruined it. Hostess team was very kind and upbeat. Visiting from out of state. Would never recommend or return.
