Sokolowski's University Inn

Wood paneling, pierogies and perch in Tremont’s oldest ethnic family owned restaurant (since 1923), serving boilermakers before Prohibition. Black Angus beef, grilled trout, and baby back ribs flavor rooms heavy with Browns memorabilia.

An edible homage to Cleveland's steel-working past, this family-owned Polish cafeteria sits high above the Flats, on the banks of the Cuyahoga, and dishes out the same sorts of simple, sturdy comfort food — pierogi, cabbage rolls, meatloaf, and mashed potatoes — that once fueled our blue-collar forbears. For students of our culinary history, Sokolowski's serves as a textbook example.
