Probably the best corned beef in the city! Have driven from the suburbs to go down there for lunch and get a sandwich. Just recently went and didn't realize how expensive it was for a corned beef sandwich. Portion is huge and it's probably worth the $13 for a sandwich but you can't eat it all, but you still pay...

They give you a lot for the money, but the corn beef be too dry. I have been going there for years and it was always very good but recently it has been dry.

I'm from NY and grew up on corned beef sandwiches. This is hands down the best corned beef sandwich I've ever had. Whenever I go to Cleveland I make a point of stopping at this restaurant.

My buddy and I ate breakfast at Slyman's and it was incredible. The food tasted really good, and so well prepared. I had a ham omelette with potatoes and a pancake (that was really tasty)! It's great food at a really good price.

Slyman's is the ultimate diner experience for anything with corned beef! I love the classic corned beef sandwich - it always requires a to-go bag! My husband and our guests returned for breakfast too - a little pricey for breakfast but a memorable experience!

Took my daughters for their first Slyman's experience. The look on their faces when my sandwich arrived made the drive completely worth it!

Best Corned Beef (they are enormous, I mean at best you can eat half) and breakfast in town (and possibly anywhere!). The Rubens are also excellent.
