Gresso's steak salads are wonderful. We stopped two years ago on our way through town and made a point to stop again. Well worth it. Great service and notable hospitality.

First time here. Had the gyro. Very good!!! My girl had the philly cheese steak, she loved it. Sitting on patio, beautiful night out. Definitely a must to come back and try the pizza. The people who had pizza around us, it looked really good.

Average but great service. Standard fare outside dining really way to dark inside. Party bar for locals, but they have nights for local groups. Watch out for the dog waste.

If you want a lot of average food that is greasy then this is your place. Nothing that is more than average.

Game day weekend full of Husker fans. Great place to congregate the night prior to the big football game. Clean but small. Pretty servers.

The owner is on the mic the whole time. Sometimes he plays music over the game. I just want to see the game and have some fun with fellow Steeler fans.

I regularly stop in for some of their famous pierogi's but I don't think I've ever had food here that was anything less than stellar. The staff is very friendly and its a great place to stop in to get a drink.

Went with a group of people for dinner before a show at the Ohio Theater. Food was fantastic. Mr. Gresso (the owner) stopped by our table repeatedly. Our server Nicole was kept hopping with 12 of us and was extremely friendly. Emilio then drove us...More

Is this place kid friendly, like on Ohio valley night?

Response from vivnie | Reviewed this property |
I would say no. I think the staff would be fine with kids, but it is a bar/tavern atmosphere, and I doubt the clientele would watch their language while they are drinking.
