The former Baricelli Inn has been spruced up by new owner and hospitality pro Scott Kuhn, with a streamlined decor, a handsome bar and lounge, and a delightful menu of seasonal American dishes crafted with an eye toward local sourcing. Sunday brunch is a popular draw, as is the Wednesday-night prix fixe menu. In summer, the secluded patio is a delight.
A line begins forming out the door around 10:30 a.m. and it doesn’t seem to let up for hours. Breakfast is served all day and features the usual egg and batter suspects plus killer corned beef hash, over-stuffed omelets and a well-stacked breakfast sandwich.
A venerable Lakewood tavern, complete with tin ceiling, wooden floors, and a well-worn bar, this neighborhood watering hole serves up booze, music, and more than a few made-from-scratch items — including burgers, pot roast, and the popular black-bean soup — during lunch, dinner, and weekend brunches.
Another changing of the guard has placed this convenient café inside the West Side Market in good hands. Tom Szoradi, veteran chef and owner of the long-running Juniper Grille, has elevated the quality, consistency, and creativity of this breakfast-and-lunch mainstay. Breakfasts are upscale versions of diner classics; sandwiches consist of house-roasted meats atop artisan-baked breads; and fun starters like sausage-studded Hanky Pankies (cheesy fondue) and tempura-fried shitakes kick-start the meal.
Wilbert’s mixes local acts with touring artists trying to get a toehold in town. Blues, rock, folk, indie, reggae, and jam bands all mingle here, so you’re never quite sure what you’ll hear.
Billed as "Lake County's First Brewery Since Prohibition," this former rail-car repair depot boasts a fine raspberry brew and regular gigs by Cleveland blues and swing luminaries.
Don't let the "wine bar" designation fool you: This second-floor boîte in the First and Main shopping district (above Solaire spa) is really a small but elegantly appointed restaurant, serving a generally well-executed menu of contemporary French and Mediterranean cuisine.
One of several Lizards roaming Northeast Ohio, the Peninsula link in this homegrown chain of casual sports bars is our favorite, especially for the building's pre-reptilian history as a small-town roadhouse and 1950s-style nightclub. Besides the ambiance of slightly faded glory, we also enjoy the casual menu of reliably prepared foods, which include great wings, good burgers and hearty, well-dressed salads.
The triangular downtown Winking Lizard has 70 televisions, which display continuous sports, including games from all major satellite packages.
One of many area outposts for this locally based tavern chain, the Independence Winking Lizard offers the typical combo of sports-themed decor, casual noshes — including the better-than-average wings, burgers, wraps and big salads — and a killer collection of suds. Full bar.
Noisy, friendly, and relaxed, the Lizard is one of Gateway's sure bets for juicy burgers, imaginative sandwiches, and overflowing salad bowls. The huge international beer list doesn't hurt either.

This mellow East Fourth St. bar packs no shortage of different styles on its stage — everything from reggae and blues to jazz and R&B. On weekends, DJs take over for the late shift.
The draw here, as the name implies, is wood-fired food. Steaks, chops and seafood are grilled over a hardwood fire, imparting a smoky richness that compliments the meat. In addition to those steaks, the menu offers straightforward pasta dishes and the expected line-up of time-tested starters like mussels, calamari, artichoke dip, and crab cakes.
