About the restaurant
Nano Brew Cleveland is a friendly neighborhood brewpub with 24 beers on draft both at the inside bar and at the lively outdoor Beer Garden Bar. Enjoy a freshly brewed beer from our 1 barrel brewhouse or any of the other local craft breweries we feature on draft. Brewmaster Andy Tveekrem brings over two decades of award-winning brewing experience to this small but mighty brewhouse to turn out adventurous and at times experimental brews. From one of a kind brews to recipes that might make it to full scale production at our Market Garden Brewery just down the block, the lineup of beers will change weekly.

Willoughby
About the restaurant
Located in Historic Downtown Willoughby, Sol is truly unique. The building dates back to the 1920s - originally serving as the Cleveland, Painesville, and Eastern Railroad power substation – and mixes modern and classic design to maintain and preserve the original architecture. Customized furniture and wood from Indonesia, unique lighting, and a variety of texture and tiles make the interior of the restaurant one of a kind. Expansive bar areas and cozy booths are the perfect place to dine or relax with a cocktail. Our award-winning patio with wood-burning fireplace and gazebo is the perfect place to lounge on a warm sunny day. Chef Brandon Hufnagle has built a home with Sol, working through the ranks over the past 8 years, and delivers amazing and delicious dishes that compliment the space perfectly. Make your next reservation with Sol. #FortheSol

The brewpub features a modern American pub menu featuring local and organic ingredients sourced primarily from our historic neighbor, the West Side Market, and the wonderful farms that dot our community. This dynamic menu is brought to you by our talented chef team. Market Garden is home to a 10 barrel brew house that has brewed up a menu of a dozen beers that span the flavor spectrum from easy drinking session lagers to big beasty ipas and porters. Noted brew master Andy Tveekrem, formerly head brewer at Dogfish Head, is at the helm.

My 6oz filet, mashed potatoes & brussel sprouts were delicious. My husband had the lamb chops and they were good but not the best he’s had in his opinion. Our crab cake appetizer was also delicious. We will definitely be back!!

About the restaurant
Classic American food with flare. Burntwood Tavern’s warm and inviting atmosphere is rich in character, and provides the perfect showcase for its straight forward, chef driven menu of smoked, planked, and wood grilled food. Handcrafted cocktails, constructed with fresh juices and house-infused vodkas, as well as offerings from a diverse craft draught beer list. If you’re looking for a heavy pour, you’ve found your place!

Was a nice way to spend Mother’s Day. Service was a little slow to start but once fully staffed the rest of our time was great.
