I come here to eat a great meal, so far I haven't been disappointed ! You can, if needed just sit and get a snack and a few drinks. It's not that convenient to get to like some corner dive bars near freeways but worth the drive into the neighborhood. Can't miss it, at a bend in the street not... More

I live locally this has become my family's go to place, and never have been disappointed. They have an excellent menu from breakfast to dinner.

This place is nice to go for any occasion. I come here mostly for lunch, their lunch menu is reasonably priced and decent portion sized for the price. I would also consider this place family friendly, at least during the day and dinner time.

This bar/restaurant has a great outdoor patio, bar, and restaurant area. I'm a huge fan of the cute fireplace in the middle and the food is pretty awesome too. Always a to do on my list for a night out!

I recommend Rivals. Here's why: in the summer the outdoor patio is large and beautiful. The food at Rivals is not typical bar food... its really good, high quality! Awesome draft beer selection! Beers always seem to be very reasonably priced. Usually draws a good sized group to watch sporting events with. Nice sized TVs located throughout the restuarant so... More

My husband and I are in Cleveland this weekend to celebrate our 25th anniversary! Rivals was recommended by the hotel staff! I'm so glad we tried it! The Bison burger I ate was juicy and delicious, and my husband said his Bistro burger was the best burger he's ever eaten!!! Also, I'm usually not one to eat French fries, but... More
