Mad Jack's Grill and Pub

Reviewed By David C - Chagrin Falls, Ohio

Based on previous reviews we decided to give this place a try on a snowy evening. Like the idea of a cozy place serving comfort food. We got seated in the dining room but it was near empty and decided to sit at the bar instead where there were a few couples. Started off with a couple of nicer glasses of wine. Unfortunately, the red pours were really undersized. Let it go thinking maybe it was just an oversight. Unfortunately, got repeated on the second glass. We tried the beet and goat cheese salad. It too was undersized and uninspired. For dinner we ordered the beef short rib which was very nicely done and the gumbo which the bartender warned against. Other than needing some okra it was pretty delicious. We asked ahead of time to make sure it was hot and it came out luke warm so it had to go back to the kitchen to be reheated. I could go on. This place has potential but it’s unrealized. I didn’t see a manager anywhere?

Dunkin' Donuts

Reviewed By LouLeo2 - Streetsboro, OH

We have been here numerous times over the months it has been open. It is usually in the afternoon. By the time we get there, the selection of donuts is limited. It looks like they run out, and don't replenish the inventory. Drive through is always faster than going inside for some reason.

We brought people here for a business dinner. The location is a little small, but they made room for our group to be comfortable. The service was very good and all guests spoke highly of their food. One of our guests has significant dietary restrictions. The staff was wonderful with meeting the needs. I would happily return for another business meeting or for an evening out.

Have been here many times. No matter how short staffed it may appear to be, the orders are always done quickly and I have never received an incorrect order. Everyone if friendly. Seating indoors or outdoors.

This Starbucks is a no frills Target Store Starbucks. They will make the usual Starbucks beverages but don't expect the same experience you would get in a stand alone store. Don't get me wrong, they will be nice and all but the ambiance is plastic and formica not wood and leather. You come for a coffee and you get a coffee nothing more or less.

1815 Tavern

Reviewed By Sharon S - Seven Hills, Ohio

The inside of the restaurant is quaint. The menu was interesting. However when dropping a C note I expected the food to be better. The presentation was beautiful however my pork loin was dry and I think that was due to the piece of meat being over 3 inches thick. To cook the center it dried out everything else. Our waitress was OK but we had to keep reminding her for refills. We agree with another reviewer, when you have loud customers something should be done. We had a group in our section that was so loud you could not hear the person next to you. That takes away from the dining experience.

We had dinner here after the movies as it is close to movie theater. Highly recommend the breads like onion kulcha and garlic nan. We had a chicken dish and a lamb dish, both medium hot and excellent flavors. Also basmati rice with saffron. Two dinner dishes were plenty of food for 3 people with the rice and breads. Great service. Very friendly and welcoming people.

Six Horses Tavern

Reviewed By Denny E

We have eaten at both the Cutting Board and the Six Horses Tavern. The food has been outstanding. This week I had the shrimp tacos and a quesadilla, my wife had the Cobb salad. We both brought food home.

Previously, I had the lobster Mac and cheese which was the best I've ever had.
The facility is quaint, rustic and clean. The wait staff have been courteous, helpful, and efficient.

We'll definitely be going back.

We've been ordering takeout from Angelo's for years and the service and pizza are always great. Today we ordered sheet pizzas for a party and they came through again, even adjusting the order quantities with very little notice after we had some cancellations. It's nice to have a local company do such a good job.
