The lunch menu includes a wide variety of starters, soups and salads, specialty sandwiches with fries, pick-two combos, and nine sides. The dinner menu includes all those items, plus smoke house ribs, pulled pork, and hearty dinner entrees. Desserts feature cheesecake, coconut fried pineapple, and "Chocolate Love" -- a molten chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream with creme brullee and strawberries. There's a Sunday brunch menu (served 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.). The bar offers a variety of beers, wine, hard ciders, and more on its drink menu. Check it out! Call 216-860-1190 for more information.
