Service was on spot. The food was so very good. I had the Salmon and asked for medium rare. It was crisp to perfection on the outside and a perfect medium. The eggplant dip was heaven. I want the recipe.

Sat in back main room for first time. A little loud and bright. Moved from table in middle of room and sat at bar for better atmosphere. (We’re picky, used to own bar and grill.) Great service and food again. Looking forward to going back. Nothing used to drag us away from Crocker Park here in Westlake for our weekly date night!

Heck’s is a cute corner neighborhood spot, which I love. We dined at around 9:00 pm. Atmosphere is seems liked expanded corner tavern space, comfortable enough, mixed theme decor. The service was great! Our waiter was friendly, helpful and attentive. He really made the experience pleasurable. There is a varied menu, but we just went for burgers on a Sat. night. My husband thought his Heckburger was OK, I enjoyed the Au Chavel burger. What fell flat for us was the fries. They were so greasy and limp, they were uneatable. The cocktails were tasty and well executed; I had the Ohio City martini and my husband had a margarita. Overall, it was a fair experience because of the food. Maybe an off night in the kitchen. Staff were friendly.

We thought the place was pretty nice and will possibly come back again for something different. My wife and I dined there. The serve was good and attentive. We had the cauliflower appetizer 2 drinks a piece and we split a burger. The drinks we just ok.. and so was the food. Our bill was $90. So my issue is for $90 I think there are better options out there with better food, better drinks and atmosphere. Avo nearby comes to mind. I think they should really review their menu and make better food...hire someone that can make fantastic drinks (knows how to salt as rim). Some easy fixes would definitely make this place much better.

Ordered tea and the teapot arrived with lukewarm water. We ordered an appetizer that ended up coming out after the entrees were served. And ordered an omelette and asked to have it with egg whites instead. Didn’t seem to be a problem, but then the server came over 10-15 minutes later saying the kitchen can’t do an egg white omelette. First time having a restaurant that can’t do an egg white omelette.

I always feel so happy whenever I eat at Heck’s. The ambiance in the green room area makes me feel so peaceful and content. Not to mention the food and service has never not been amazing! Also, I usually don’t write reviews but I truly think this place deserves a good one. Highly highly recommend

I met some coworkers for lunch and the service was great and food was fantastic. Two thumbs up for the coconut an apple salad with chicken! And my coworkers enjoyed their burgers. This is a good central location for meeting people from the East side and West side.

Delicious food with a lot of options. The service was incredible and everyone was reasonably spaced out. I haven’t gone out to eat much during covid but I felt pretty comfortable here. Also if you love yourself at all please get the bread pudding.

Had a wonderful brunch experience at Heck’s Cafe! We repeated our first Valentine’s Day date from 32 years ago and we’re pleased to say the food and ambiance are great. Had two masterfully created cocktails, Heck’s fries with a garlic aioli and then avocado toast with fried eggs and arugula. Just wonderful. Will not wait 32 years to return!

The only disappointing part was they had us seated next to the kitchen, outside of the main dining area and it was the main traffic area for people entering/exiting the restaurant. I understand social distancing, but this table exposed us to every customer walking by throughout the dinner. The food was amazing and the service was fantastic!
