We truly enjoy authentic Slovenian food - we've been there and know what it is supposed to be. This is not. One reviewer said you will love or hate this place -- that reviewer was right on! We didn't love it. Our server was friendly and offered suggestions. We ordered the chicken soup, based on her recommendation. It was cold... More

My previous visit to this restaurant was about 10 years ago. I remembered it being a very good experience, so I was looking forward to another visit. I was very disappointed. We had a group of 18 and the entire group ordered the family style option. The best thing I can say about the experience is that they had a... More

The food was cold, the wait was very long, the place was dirty the service was horrible and the people were rude. I would never go here again and I would recommend you going elsewhere before stepping into this establishment. I overpaid for this horrible food and regret eating there!!

It has been a few years since I was at Sterle's and was looking forward to lunch with co-workers. We arrived at 11:30, since I remember the place filled up quickly, an was immediately seated and the only party in the restaurant. The server came over quickly to get drink orders, but we only wanted water--she gave us a few... More

This is the real thing, genuine authentic Slovenian food is a sweet ethnic interior. Great service by a staff who really care. Low prices, so you get a lot for your money. But the problem is that the food is not very good, nothing special, boring, not great quality.

Have been going here for 40 + years. The place is off more than a step or two. We had a good time, but the menu is not the same cooking. Polka band was fun. Beer was good. Slivovitz had more than I should. Hope the return to their glory.

Our last visit to Sterle's was 2 years ago and everything was wonderful. Our visit on this trip to Cleveland was disappointing. The restaurant maintained its charm and ambiance and the live music helped set the tone.We were seated promptly by a very pleasant young lady - and that was the best service we experienced. Our waitress was distracted every... More

I went here with my daughters since we were on our way through town and we had seen it on tv. Had to track down a waitress after waiting for 10 min to be noticed. She then provided service so cold and surly that I wanted to ask her if she had a personal vendetta against Lithuanians. The food was... More

It is clearly more and more difficult to find a good polka band and dinner, but not so in Cleveland! Frank Sterle's Slovenian Country House is the place to be, not only on the weekend, but any evening. The wiener schnitzel is tender and there is a lot of it. The Sterle's schnitzel is made with pork and in a... More

I live in Cleveland and am proud of our many ethic restaurants! I especially enjoy Eastern European "Soul Food". Polish, Slovak, Slovenian, Czech cuisine-you name it-I love it! I have been to Sterle's Slovenian Country House a couple of times within the past year for ethnic celebrations. The place was packed, the accordions were going great guns, the bar was... More
