Average food and service sums up our experience. The fish was not fully cooked and the steak salad was okay. Won't go back.

Great place to watch some football with some good daily specials. Great wings that are on special on Sundays. Staff very friendly. Six pool tables that can get busy especially when league games are being played. Also a restaurant side but I prefer eating in the bar area. Great local place.

The restaraunts food and service is always top notch. There is a pool hall/bar/TV area that is always very clean and service is quick. Have eaten here for both lunch and dinner numerous times. Good to have a quality sports bar/family restaraunt in Clayton.

We had been on the road for a long time, checked into our hotel, and didn't want to drive far, but neither did we want fast food or the atmosphere that goes with it. This place was recommended by the staff at the hotel where we were staying. The food is tasty - I had a 1/2 rack of ribs... More

We've been eating at this bar for many years - there is little competition around this area of Garner. The wait staff is great, although the Clayton location seems to have drawn away some friendly faces, energy, and patrons. The food has always been average but when prices went up, quality went all over the place. Wings can be dry... More

Hi Kdlraleigh, Glad to hear you have been a regular patron for many years. Not sure what prompted this response but would like the opportunity to discuss this with you further. As for "fries change shape monthly", we have only switched once in 10 years to try curly fries earlier this past winter and after a two week trial, we... More

Wife and I stopped by after a recommendation from a Family member who lives in the area--was looking for ribs and was not disappointed. BB where and greasy with a sweet taste. 7Oz ribeye was cut a little thin but had a good open grilled taste--onion rings were really good and recommend them.

Scott J, Owner at Cleveland Draft House, responded to this review

FleetPride1, Was glad to hear you enjoyed our ribs..one of our specialties! We cut our own ribeye steaks from full loins and unfortunately, because of the width of the loins we receive, the 7oz steaks are a bit thin but am looking to see if we can purchase smaller loins for the smaller cuts of steak. We appreciate you trying... More

Have been going to the draft house since it opened almost 10 years ago. The staff is always friendly and the food is good. I think I have had every salad and wrap on their menu. My favorite meal was a daily special that was a combination of chicken tenders, mashed potatoes, corn and cheese. Not something I would typically... More
