Sorry Cole's your open-faced (not offered that way any more) Reuben which used to be incredible was but a shadow of itself. Lest I wax poetic let me just say unfortunately my friend whom I treated to lunch (we both had) said it was terrible,...More

Coles has been around almost twice as long as I have been alive and I'm not a youngster. Stopped in for a benefit and stayed for dinner. Back in my day (80's into 90's), Coles was a great place to hang out either as a...More

I've been here many many times. They have good/generic food. The place is huge, and has a nice bar scene at night. The location of the darts board does not make any sense (you'll see what I mean as soon as you walk in.)

In Elmwood Village, which all by itself is a reason to come. A very fun street (check out the Half and Half Boutique next door). Lots of street parking. Cole's is a great space - very eclectic. The main dining area has a glass garage...More

As far as I can tell, there is metered parking on the street. Those spots may be all taken -- at some times of the day or week.
Has anyone else had a supernatural experience at the bar? I would love to see Cole's investigated on Paranormal Lockdown or Ghost Adventures.

As far as I know there is no haunting or paranormal activity at Cole's. Did you find something saying otherwise? We have never experienced anything and neither have any of our friends who have been there.
