Took the boys out for their birthdays, had to get the stuffed peppers and they delivered - great app! Went during restaurant week and enjoyed the 3 courses; salad, chicken and peppers and desert all well worth the visit. Hidden in the warehouse district small sports bar with good eats, known for their burger

Great little place for a burger or bar food. Great music. great food, great staff. It's really down a dark alley. But, don't let that scare you off. Inside it's a charming little place with a bar and ten or so tables. The staff is really nice and attentive to your needs. We had a couple of burgers and onion... More

Love the comfortable vibe, great service, and potent drinks. Great place to happy hour, linger, or pub crawl through. Fantastic burgers also.

Friends took us to the little bar one night and we had the best burger. My husband went back before a Cavs game. It's a small place but seriously one of the best burgers. Lots of fun....the crowd gets going. Feels like a neighborhood bar. Staff is very friendly too.

In Cleveland on Business, this restaurant bar was a short walk from our hotel. The Marriott Renaissance. The valet recommended the restaurant and he was bang on, one of the best hamburgers that I have ever had. Staff are friendly and courteous.

Had a burger and fries. The fries were very crispy, yet homemade, indicating they fried them twice. Paired with Great Lakes Dortmunder. Winner!

I don't have enough words to describe how satisfied I was when I left this place. The place is absolutely tiny, but it packs a huge personality, and the burgers are to die for. If you should find yourself in need of beef downtown, drop in, and be amazed. If you order a Guinness, the bartender pours one like I've... More

I was in town for work with some friends and we decided to hit a local place instead of a chain. Johnny's Little Bar had several good reviews so we stopped in. Great atmosphere, good food and great service. We had the mozzarella sticks, jalapeño poppers, burgers, fries and onion rings. Every one was great. I highly recommend stopping by.
