I stopped in here with a work colleague while on a business trip to Cleveland. I had been anticipating visiting the place ever since my trip was scheduled. The experience was everything I hoped it would be.

The bar room walls are lined with wood and a wonderful grand old wooden bar. The lighting is dim, but not too dim. The place was filling up at about 7pm when we arrived and getting fuller by the minute. The room was filled with the sound of friendly conversation.

The food was good, but the beer was better. All varieties I tasted were of the most excellent quality.

The staff was friendly and helpful, but they were a bit understaffed for the crowd that was coming in, which understandably slowed the service a bit. However, it was not too slow. I suppose when you're wanting another pint of their delicious beer, it can seem like an eternity.

I highly recommend the place for anyone stopping in Cleveland. If I were more local, this would be routine watering hole for me.

Update on 6/21/08:
Stopped here with my wife on a recent trip. It was every bit as good as I remember and perhaps even better. I've updated the scores as well to reflect these opinions.
