 Prosperity Social Club
1109 Starkweather Ave., Cleveland
Cozy and retro, this former workingman’s watering hole serves up delicious food, booze, and a bowling machine along with the live music. And they’re also known for serving up one of the best fish frys in town, their ‘Gotta Haddock” plate. It’s $22, but you get a ton of fried haddock, mac and cheese and a lot of cole slaw along with a cup of chowder and two potato pierogies with caramelized onions and a dollop of sour cream. If you don’t need food for a family of four, there’s a cheaper offering that still comes with plenty of haddock, slaw and mac and cheese for $14 every Friday throught Lent.
