A great place for a more subdued place for a beer. The waitstaff was great and were getting it done.

Have been to Ballantine's several times over the years. Always great service, very friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices for quality food. Has great beer selection, some tables located next to big windows looking out to the main street. This is a classy place without the very expensive price.

Went with another couple on Saturday night. Had table on warm night next to open window. Good service and waitress made helpful recommendations. Had sushi nachos as an appetizer which were very good. Salmon dish and hamburger were delicious. Large bar, outside patio, and TV's. Parked down the street in municipal lot.

this was the second time in Ballantine and I took a Verlasso Salmon. The fish and the vegetable were so dense of butter that the flavor was so sweet. the service was so good and quick.

We've eaten at this restaurant many times, and return because it is close. Earlier in the evening works better for us because the bar becomes very crowded later in the evening. Have not really ever had any complaints and keep returning.

This is one of the main restaurant in Willoughby. My colleagues decided for a steak with french fries or roasted potatoes, another colleague for the sashimi. That time I preferred to switch at not standard dinner for me. Inside the dish I found: salmon, yellowfin tuna, codfish, ebi shrimp and seaweed. Sauces were wasabi, soy and ginger served separately, with... More

We had a fine supper at Ballantine. The service was friendly and quick, the menu interesting (including sushi) and the atmosphere relaxed. Street parking can be difficult on Euclid, but there is parking around the corner. Do give Ballantine a try, you will be glad you did

So, I had to think about the rating on this one. Food is actually pretty good. We also had good service. They have a nice beer list which I enjoy. Menu is a bit eclectic with sushi and a couple other Asian Fusion items mixed in the American burgers, some pasta and steaks. What makes this an average rating then?... More

When the weather is fine they open the picture windows and its like a sidewalk cafe , only better. Have consistently had good food here, and excellent service. They have an open fire brick oven and also make great pizza.
