Formerly the 53-year-old Reserve Inn, this Hudson space has been updated with crisp wood floors, walls clad in weathered barn siding, and tables topped in brown craft paper, giving it a masculine, clubby feel. The menu offers a predictable pool of crowd-pleasing chestnuts like house-fried chips, flatbreads, burgers, and grilled meats. Along with the food, a good beer and wine selection — including wines on tap — make this upscale casual pub a safe bet for mixed groups.
Formerly Liquid/Suite Sixx/Ultra, now all rolled into one newly renovated package

Tucked into a small space just south of Public Square, Ontario Street Café is hidden in plain sight. This classic Cleveland bar has been around for longer than most regulars can recall — but then again, most have been drinking since noon. Despite the well-worn interior — and less-than-welcoming exterior — this is no dive bar. Bartenders wear white shirts and neckties. Service is prompt and professional. And the fresh-sliced deli sandwiches are out of this world. Drinks are dirt cheap but you need cash to enjoy them.
Not since Symon and Herschman ran dueling bistros across the street from one another has this end of Professor been so lively. Press is a "wine bar" in name alone as the breadth and quality of the food here bares little in common with what typically passes as grub at others in the genre. Prosciutto-wrapped monkfish, deftly grilled steak, and a tasty crab cake sandwich prove the range of the chef's talents. At eight selections, the wine-on-tap list is one of the longest in town.
The standard bearer of the neighborhood’s Irish-American pubs is the Public House, a snug little den offering honest food at an honest price. Both Irish and domestic beers are flat-out cheap.

Valhalla for wing nuts, with burgers, malts and lots of car-bohydrates to rev about. The sauces range from sweet to “Atomic,” and the rib buzz will linger late into the night.

Nestled on the edge of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, this lovingly built, family-owned and -operated winery, wine bar, and crafts gallery offers a small lineup of paninis and simple noshes to accompany the sweet Ohio wines.

Loud rock and cheap drinks rule at this funky dive, where the jukebox is stocked with punk classics and the beer flows freely starting at 4 p.m. each day. Every January, the place is renamed the Hulett and caters to the metal crowd.
