We stopped at The Flat Iron on our way to a show at The Music Box. This was a completely blind stop, the weather was bad and we were hungry, with a couple hours to spare before the show. What a gem of a bar!...More

Stopped in for dinner before a House of Blues concert. Great wings and chili for starters. Burgers, variety of sandwiches, and shepherds pie to boot! Nice bar too. Service can be a bit slow on weeknights when they seem to be understaffed. It's the best...More

Our group enjoyed wings with the signature sauce as an appetizer. Cobb salad with grilled chicken was tasty and filling. Great pour on the guiness, just as the factory teaches. Chicken pot pie special strongly recommended by waitress but found it to be more sauce...More

Food took a little while, but if you feel like some good pub grub and music, its well worth the wait. Close to Jakobs Pavillon for pre concert meals and drinks.

A quaint local pub with a good selection of Irish grub and typical pub food. Good selection of beer. Boasting that they are Cleveland's oldest Irish pub and home for the St Patrick's Parade committee.

Shepherd's Pie ranks as one of my favorite dishes to get when hitting an Irish pub/restaurant, so when I saw it on the menu at The Flat Iron Cafe I immediately started licking my lips. Then the waitress brought it. The dish amounted to little...More

I think that we surprised the restaurant when 14 of us barged in but they turned the tables on us and provided excellent service at a real decent price. This is the oldest restaurant/bar ongoing establishment in town and alcohol is not necessary....The food is...More
