On a short road trip to Cleveland we had the pleasure of popping into this bar! Great dive bar. Burgers and onions rings were delicious. Some great Ohio beers to try. Music was a mix of classic rock and 90s. The bartenders and other patrons...More

We toured Cleveland and hit thirteen bars and restaurants in two days. This was my favorite for both the food and drinks. Small little hole in the wall, but great burgers, nice selection of drink offerings and great service. Well worth the stop.

Situated in the alley behind its fine dining big brother, Little Bar is a fantastic little dive with a modest but quality craft beer selection and some of the best burgers you will ever have.
