Bridges Restaurant in Quicken Arena [Cleveland]

Anyone been to this restaurant. We're going to a Cavs game in a couple of weeks and would like to have dinner before the game. If Bridges is any good, it would be convenient. Or other suggestions would be great. Thanks.

  1. I would personally go to one of the restaurants on East 4th street, which is right around the corner from the Q. If you have never been to Lola, it is a wonderful experience. A more reasonable, but less memorable meal, can be had at La Strada. It is a romantic atmosphere with good food, but IMO a distant second to Lola.

    1. I wouldn't eat there either, would also recommend 4th street. If you're watching your $ you could try Flannery's (Irish pub) or House of Blues, might be a little cheaper than Lola or La Strada.

        Thanks for the advice kathryn and rockandroller. I have hear good things about Lola. Do you need to dress up there or can you go casual? Thanks.

          You can get as dressed up as you want but chic or business casual is fine. I love Lola too!

            If you're going to follow the Lola suggestion, I urge you to make your reservation as far ahead as you can - one can't always simply stroll in to Lola and expect to be seated. It's worth taking the trouble to ensure you can get in, though -- there's a reason you can hardly have a Cleveland thread on Chowhound without someone name-checking Lola.
