I can't wait to try this place! I spent my 20's in Chagrin Falls and DInk's was the place for all of us to gather for breakfast or lunch. (We usually didn't make breakfast. LOL!)
Been here a few times. Food is excellent....if it ever shows up at your table! They need to hire a front of house manager. They are newcomers who don't understand how to run a restaurant. Staff isn't trained. Although owner is a very nice guy, their service is executed miserably. Tandul - a great test of patience.
Sounds great, but please make the cilantro optional!!
Are you high with this review?
The drinks are expensive and unbelievably watered down, for $12 martini you should at least be able to taste the alcohol. The asian Mahi Mahi lettuce wraps were totally flavorless and tasted like frozen fish. The drinks and wraps were so bad we canceled the rest of our order. Bold is more like a diner than a steak house.
Ate there on Sunday after the theater. Ordered the walleye dish....out of this world good! Our group ordered all the desserts to be able for each of us to try them all. All were very good, however the creme brulee was the best I had ever had anywhere. Prices are about in line with any of the major chains however Bold's dishes are original and freshly prepared making it a place I will gladly return to again and again. Great place to eat. Great atmosphere.
Looking forward to it!
I can't wait for opening day!
WTF does "it's social" mean?
The catfish and chicken baskets were great, and the service is FAST...but the help had trouble explaining the menu and had to come back a couple of times to get the order straight. Questions were not answered well...are the big bags for one person...or two? Seems to be a language issue (fluency in English) among the staff...not all of them...just a couple
The place is small, crowded, and LOUD. Do they really need the annoying hip-hop music from the overhead sound system, or is that just to keep the staff energized? Of course, we did pick Mother's Day for our visit, so that may have had something to do with the ambiance. But the scene at the front door...the manager noisily arguing with an irate customer over surcharges on an order... didn't exactly help our digestion, either.
Bottom line: Good food...on the wrong day. Good place to chow down before a double feature (Japanese animation) at the Cedar Lee, which is why we were there. I would definitely go back...and give it a thumbs up, except for the shitty music.
And hell, yeah...Doug does need to go negative once in a while. He needs to go back out to West Park. He goes by the name of Mikey out there...he hates everything.

been here once. biscuits and gravy were the worst i think ive ever had. the biscuits were green and the sausage gravy was just inedible. freshstart was better
Does anyone know who the owner is?
Great review I thought it was perfectly written and agree with all the good in what you said and am glad to see others see it as a bit higher in price and it was not just me thinking that
I eat out almost everyday so I see a ton of places to eat and never at a chain
Southern cafe will be a great food place even at a bit higher price.
Why assume soul food should be cheap? The dishes are labor-intensive and unique in this part of town. This place is delicious and the prices are in the exact range of other new and trendy places.
i think dougs in it just to get free food. he never gives bad reviews anymore. we need an honest critique. boiling seafood , come on!!!
My wife is Chinese and went with a work colleague. You describe it well. For me it is more kitchen than restaurant. Instead of serving a pot of food in a plastic bag, why not just pour everything into a trough and we just bob for shrimp?
So happy that Chardon FINALLY has a high quality restaurant! Love the sushi as well! Kudos Chef!
The quality of the chicken went down with the cheesy corn. I was disappointed the last time I went.
the place sucks
Bring back BYOB!!!!!
