Food & Dining in Cleveland


There are literally hundreds of restaurants to choose from, many showcasing the ethnic and cultural flavour that Cleveland is known for. Whether you crave contemporary Italian cuisine or fresh seafood, one thing is certain; you won't leave Cleveland hungry.

Because many restaurants get busy, especially on weekends, it's a good idea to call ahead for reservations. Lunch is generally eaten noon-1:30 pm. For dinner, Clevelanders dine early: You will find restaurants at their busiest 6-7:30 pm.

Places to Dine


You cannot walk two blocks downtown without coming across a fine steakhouse. It all starts just a few blocks south of Lake Erie at John Q's Steakhouse. Situated in the middle of downtown, it is the city's most famous, most popular and arguably best eatery. David's at Key Tower and Morton's of Chicago, The Steakhouse are among the best places to enjoy a slab of beef.

Morton's also has a wide selection of seafood, which seems to be the most abundant fare in the city. Hornblower's Barge and Grill, Century at the Ritz Carlton and the Blue Point Grille are top stops on the seafood trail. Johnny's Downtown will toss in a dish of linguine with your lobster, and if something from the local waters is on your mind, you can get a plate of perch just about any place.

Pasta is the most prevalent non-domestic dish downtown. Italian restaurants line the streets and you do not have to be in Little Italy to find one. Johnny's Bar, Circo Zibibbo, Frank & Pauly's and Ciao Cucina are among the numerous choices. Then there is Sans Souci restaurant, which serves traditional French cuisine, and the Greek Isles restaurant, which has a menu that transports palates to the flavours of the Mediterranean.

For those wanting to experience the sights and sounds of Cleveland more so than the tastes, there is the The Terrace Club (Levy Restaurants) inside Jacobs Field. You can even enjoy lunch and dinner when the home team is away and during the off-season.

The Flats and Tremont

Littered with such chains as Hooters and BW3, the area's nightclub scene has a few selections for those wanting more than bar food. Shooter's on the Water and Pats in the Flats prove that a bar-and-grill can actually have the emphasis on grill.

For people seeking trendy bistros and eclectic eateries, Tremont is the neighbourhood for them. The up-and-coming district features Kosta's, which is one of the hippest joints in town. Fat Cats is among the top Italian establishments in this neighbourhood or any other. Fahrenheit kicks it up a notch with a fresh, seasonal menu of pizzas and pasta.
