We love going here for Browns pre-game, atmosphere and service is good - food and drinks are great, we LOVE the chicken tenders and fries (some of our favorite tenders).
The only reason I gave this visit 4 stars is because our server and others had their mask pulled down nearly the entire time. We're trying to do our part to keep supporting restaurants but are insistent it's done safely - we wear our masks when not eating or drinking, so do your part and wear yours properly - having it looped below your chin isn't helping anyone. Tables were distanced well.

Love 216! Great food (We split the delicious Truman's Burger and it was more than enough for both of us!) and good beer selection. Love their promotion of talented and amazing local musicians, which is what drew us there in the first place.

No one was really wearing a mask despite being in a pandemic. Made me feel a little unsafe but, what can you do?

Love the vibe at Truman’s. It was a great game day place to drink some beers. The service was great. We had multiple servers come to check on us throughout our meal. The food was good, just typical bar eats. My only comment would be they were a bit relaxed with the mask rule. Most server were wearing them but didn’t have them up over their mouths or noses and quite a few guests did not have them on when moving around the restaurant. It wasn’t an end of the world thing for me, but I could see how people who have family or friends that are at risk could have a bigger issue with this.

Made reservations and was not taken care of. Waited at the hostess stand for approx. 5 minutes before greeted after being ignored by multiple wait staff. Was told the reservation did not matter and that they were full.

We reserved a table but the table was given away to other diners. We waited half an hour before our drink order was taken. The food and drinks were delicious but the service was just extremely slow and spotty. We had to go looking for servers several times. Not sure we will give this another try.

Truman's is an OK place with a sports bar feel. Hostess/Front room server was prompt to seat us but it took more than few minutes to get a server. She was very nice and prompt after the initial hiccup though. Really did not like the "manager" wearing a tank top as he wandered around the restaurant. Don't know if others like the potential of arm pit hair in your food, but I don't. Probably not going back.

Loved sitting on the patio - felt very safe with the dividers between tables. Was concerned that servers had masks but did not wear them over nose and mouth. Service was slow - we weren't in any hurry, but it took a long time to get our drinks and food. The food was OK - not really anything special.
