Smallish place, so there can be a wait. Have texting system to tell you when table ready & you can check your place in line on line ... we were told 30 mins, but only had to wait 10 as couple parties ahead of us needed larger tables (Only 3 of us). Good variety on the menu & all breakfasts... More

After an unfortunate encounter with Rowley's "Inn" (definitely more of a pub) diagonal from the Christmas Story house, where locals were a few pints in by 10AM and the kitchen was supposedly not opening for a few more hours, we found Grumpy's half a mile away. A breath of fresh air! Now one of my all time favorite restaurants, though... More

We got a late start to the day so we decided to have a little brunch. We look around and decided to give Grumpy's a try. I'm glad we did. The menus selection is quite large and seems to have a bit for all. I got the Chorizo burrito with the cajun home fries and was delicious! I had chorizo... More

This was a busy place the morning that we visited, but well worth the wait. They have coffee available while you wait for your table and there is plenty of artwork adorning the walls to entertain you. The menu is varied and should satisfy everyone. The waitress was helpful and informative. This is the place for some good comfort food.

We went on a Sunday brunch morning and while it was busy, the staff was friendly and the food was fast and delicious! I definitely recommend the Cinnamon Apple Walnut French Toast 👌👍🏼!

Second time we have been to Grumpy's. Had to wait 40 minutes but they have a heated and covered patio with coffee while you wait. I just can't write enough on how wonderful the breakfast and homey atmosphere is! The porky omelette is a superb treat for the pallet! Well worth the price two can feast on this! Excellent service...

The softest, most delicious pumpkin pancakes I've ever had. Service is always friendly and efficient, everything my husband and I have ordered has been great!

Family of 5 ended an early day out in downtown Cleveland and wanted to try something new. So happy we stopped! Yummy pancakes, breakfast sandwich, steak burger, and cranberry walnut salad. All delicious. The home fries topped it all of perfectly (we asked for ours minus the spice;) Kind servers & local art displayed give it a comfortable atmosphere. Went... More

Went here for breakfast on a beautiful Saturday morning. Outstanding food! Our group had: Veggie Benedict, Walker Hash, and Grumpy's Special. All were excellent. As expected, Cajun home fries that came with them are a little spicy hot, but had plenty of water to put the fire out. Servers were top notch--efficient and friendly! Lovely local Cleveland artwork on the... More

We went in not knowing what to expect. It was late morning and we would've liked breakfast but they don't serve breakfast all day. The waitress did offer an abbreviated version of their breakfast menu to accommodate us. Very nice of her to do but we didn't want to be difficult so we skipped breakfast and went for lunch. Sam...
