This place has been around for ages and after years of being away it was great to go back and verify that the ribs were just as good as I remembered. Although the menu offers a wide variety of choices, the only one I ever seem to make is between the St, Louis style and baby back ribs. On this... More

This restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel and we definitely needed the walk after dinner. It serves huge servings of comfort food at great prices. Definitely not a fancy place, buy you will have a good meal without making a big dent in your wallet. Don't expect to be able to eat dessert - you're likely going to... More

The food is good, including some ethnic dishes. Portions are generous . Prices are reasonable. Decor could use some updating.

I used to live in a high rise only two blocks from "the Tock" from 1977 through 1983. We ate there at least once a week, and it truly was extraordinary. The secret was the sauce. After moving to Atlanta, I would order it by the case to have it shipped down. However, ownership changed hands some years later, and... More

During my travels through Cleveland, I am always looking for a hidden gem I can find no place else. Here I found it at the Tick Tock Tavern. We had an incredible lunch for an incredible price here, and left full and happy! The restaurant itself can use some sprucing up. The booths were stained and older looking, but if... More

Visiting the neighborhood after 40 years away. My husband, mother and I stopped by for a refreshment. Looks very much the neighborhood hangout, a few motorcycles, etc. The bathrooms are dated.

Went there for lunch with 3 friends. We all had a good meal and were served by a friendly waitress. It's not gourmet dining for sure but easily worth what you pay for what you get.

Happy hour has 20 oz. Yuengling for $2.50. Even better, a pitcher is $7.00. This is a really good deal - if you like Yuengling. The food was just average. We have had better there - so we don't know if they have a different chef or what. Prices are exceptional - Salmon steak salad for $7.75. But the salmon... More
