This 'fine-casual steakhouse' serves hand-cut steaks, seafood, pasta and house-made sides. Built into a historic 130-year-old property, the 80-seat restaurant boasts original brick walls, hardwood flooring and exposed beams.
You can tell that chefs Brian Okin and Adam Bostwick spend a lot of time thinking about food. At Cork & Cleaver, they routinely push the envelope when concocting cunningly delicious dishes like "Rueben Ribs," chicken and waffles, and pork paprikash. The Board, C&C's version of the ubiquitous charcuterie platter, is packed with roasted bone marrow, seared foie gras and quivering pork belly. Locals say it's like a little taste of Tremont in sleepy Broadview Heights.
This neighborhood eatery and tavern may be far removed from the cutting edge; still, it draws big crowds, hungry for ample helpings of well-prepared ribs, chicken, salads, sandwiches, and chops. In season, a pretty outdoor patio in the namesake courtyard makes a popular lunch and dinner retreat.

Soups, salads, sandwiches and burgers as well as occasional pierogi or fish-fry dinners round out the menu, not to mention the clientele!
The architecture of downtown Hudson may be the epitome of preppy, but tripping through the doorway into Dave's is like waking up back at Kent State circa 1969. Yet even without the psychedelic decor, we would gladly stage a love-in here, just to savor Dave's oversized subs, stuffed with fresh ingredients and wrapped in the best crisp-crusted rolls in the region.
Star chef Dante Boccuzzi has taking over the former VegiTerranean space. The lovely view over the Cuyahoga Valley remains the same, but everything else is different -- from the eccentric rock & roll decor to the seriously delicious menu of modern, seasonal meats, pastas, and seafood.
