An esteemed member of the collective known as the Cleveland Independents, Bistro 185 has been a blessing to the North Collinwood neighborhood.

Firehouse Grille and Pub
Known for their great wings, drinks specials and exemplary service, The Firehouse Grille, and Pub continues to be a landmark for Lake County residents and visitors new to the Willoughby area. From 3-6pm many items are at a reduced price in addition to their daily specials. Thursday all you can eat ribs is my personal favorite.

Delicious Caribbean cuisine and an Island atmosphere should be more than enough to draw a decent Happy Hour Crowd right? The wonderful folks at Bahama Breeze do not think so. This must be why they have half-price appetizers, $5 specialty drinks and $2 off their award-winning chicken wings. Then again, in Cleveland, it is best to put your best foot forward.
