Went here on a Saturday before going to the improve for a show. The place was empty but it is the winter, being on the waterfront I could see why a summer visit would be better. The place is large lots of tables and to big bar areas. Our server Eric was exceptional. We really enjoyed the cocktails and the... More

We ate lunch on a beautiful Sunday and the atmosphere was great but that's where the greatness ends. The service was fair at best. The waitress was very nice but the service and drinks were slow. I ordered soup and it tasted like it just came from a can. For the lunch I chose the pulled pork and it was... More

SUPER BUSY. I like that there are a lot of bars set up all around the place and that its right on the water. It gets really busy but we didnt have to wait very long for our drinks. Dance area was cool and nice vibe for a night out.

Wanted to go somewhere for lunch and catch some of the planes at the air show. Outside seating was full a nice change from past years. Got a seat inside with the family right away. Service was very attentive and our server was good. Had the Salmon Sandwich because they were out of Walleye. My son order the Buffalo chicken... More

We are fortunate to live in Cleveland where there are so many great restaurant choices- sadly Shooters is not one of them. Even as bar food goes - this place is sub par. A beautiful location with so much potential - this place is in need of a "bar rescue" overhaul in decor and menu. Cmon - Shooters, be part... More

Shooters has been around for many years - 30 at least - but doesn't seem to be as popular as it once was. Food was fresh and tasty with friendly service and the same great view. Great place to hang out on a sunny afternoon and watch the boat traffic.

Nice spot, view was awesome (well minus the spiders) food was pretty good. We went early on a Friday so wasn't crowded. Waitress was nice (needed a belt) but nice.

went to dinner before a concert on a Tuesday about 5PM. Had a 15 minute wait for a table. We waited at the bar where there was only one bar tender so we got our drink the same time as the table was ready. The restaurant was clean and looked very nice. Good view of the river and East Bank.

Hadn't been to Shooters in years & went for dinner after taking a Trolley Tour around town, since they are right across the parking lot. It was a gorgeous day to sit outside along the Cuyahoga River & watch the boats & huge cargo ships go by. Service was very friendly by all the staff. We both enjoyed the baked... More
