Had MANY corn beef sandwiches over the years, this was just about the best EVER. (NO B.S.) We order two for three people and still had a hard time eating the entire order. We did get fries also that were also very good. They put enough meat on the sandwich for a few sandwiches but that's half the fun of... More

If you look at TA and search restaurants, you will find this place top of the heap. And it is very deserving. Probably more so than anything, it is predictable and it is very delicious. I gave it four stars because even though I think it is a 5 star lunch or deli place, it does not compete for Cleveland's... More

People aren't going to wait in line for sub-par food, and a great quantity of good food isn't going to be cheap. This is one of the few places left in Cleveland where a little inconvenience pays off so well, rather than just being "trendy." Corned beef carnivores from across the US, as well as carloads of hungover students from... More

This is slated the best corned beef in the city. Well.... it is good. I have friends who swear by it. I do recommend Slyman's. Busiest corned beef spot in the city on and around St, Patrick's Day!

I usually get a take-out order from Slyman's Deli. There has to be 5 inches of corn beef in the sandwich. The sandwich is so big that it will last for two meals. You may have to wait in line if you go during the lunch hour but it is worth the wait. It is an excellent buy.

Do not let the small exterior facade nor the big line for a seat ,deter you from this epic Cleveland sandwich experience . This multi- generational restaurant has been crafting amazing sandwiches for decades. Plan to spend an hour ( unless you call your order in advance ) enjoy the great old style St. Clair Ave. Lunch spot. ₩

Slyman's Deli is awesome for breakfast for lunch. In fact, I wish they were open longer. All sandwiches (especially corned beef) are great!

Was craving corned beef so took my wife to try slymans. I made sure to visit on the weekend so we could take a nap afterwards because the sandwiches are huge. Horseradish was on the table along with mustard and ketchup by request. The sandwiches are phenomenal, and the portions really set slymans apart
