Haven't been there in over a year, last time wasn't so good. I heard
they had new owners and some of the menu changed. We went this past
Saturday night and we were more then pleasantly surprised. 1st of
all the drinks were very reasonably priced and the staff could not
have been any friendlier or accommodating. The menu still, had some
of the old favorites like Chicken Paprikash which my wife had. It
was far better then the last time she had it. We started with the
stuffed fried artichokes as an appetizer. My wife not a big
artichoke fan gave in to me and we shared it, she is now an
artichoke fan, they were fantastic. I had the Pasta Provincial with
mussels, it was what pasta in garlic sauce should taste like. our
dinners also came with a choice of soup or salad, I had the clam
chowder which was creamy and seasoned correctly. Usually I need to
add pepper at most places, this was just right. After dinner we
moved to the bar area and listened to the band for awhile. Overall
great experience that I think will get even better as the owners
continue to improve it.

driven by this place so many times and never stopped in
until now, don't make the same mistake. Once you walk
through the door you will immediately feel the the
hometown vibe that you don't find very often. It's so
straight forward long straight bar to the left tables to
the right a few TVs, a few beer signs and a lot of
friendly people. This definitely could be my local
They're famous for their Lake Erie Perch and let me tell
you a lot of places in northeast Ohio claim to serve
authentic perch from the lake due north but few
consistently do. This is no doubt the best fried Lake
Erie Perch I've ever eaten, lightly battered, fried
perfectly, it's truly heavenly. I'm
not a huge fan of side dishes when I'm eating fish this
good but the fresh hand cut fries were awesome.
There are a few other things I found to be exceptional
The service - the prices - and the homemade warm
chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream with whipped
cream (this is a must try when they have it). I can't wait to return.

Nice beer selection, good variety of liquor. The clam chowder was
fantastic (and I make my own from scratch with fresh clams, their
broth, cream, etc.), the burger was very good, fries were from fresh
potatoes. Service was very attentive, obviously the bartender and
waitress cared. We will def. return.
- Patty M. (North Olmsted, OH. Yelp Review 12/27/2014)
Excellent Lake Erie perch; lightly breaded and not greasy. Very
friendly servers. Great clam chowder too. Plus a totally comfortable
room. My kind of place!
- Dave C. (Hudson, Ohio Yelp Review 8/28/2014)
Oh my goodness, I think my heart hurts, but I will die happy :)
Dave's dirty nachos are pita chips with scallions, tomatoes,and
black olives and then served with a dip of cream cheese, cheddar,
spinach and artichokes....the most decadent thing I have ever eaten.
AWESOME!!!!! Everything else was excellent too....YUM!
-Tom E. (Doylestown, OH. Yelp Review 7/23/2014)
This was an occasional stop back in my grad school days, and I
recently returned for the ever-popular fish fry. The portions are
prodigious. The place is cozy. Yes, that means small, but it's also
cozy in the best sense. The servers are exceedingly attentive, the
prices are fair, and the food is good. There's a reason it's

I usually never write reviews but I had to after the service I had
last night. She was very friendly and full of smiles. I never had to
wait for a drink and she keep the table very clean throughout the
night. I will visit again!

I wanted to visit for a long while and I am glad I did. Perch was

Its a great place that I enjoy
going to. keep up the good work!! 05-24-2013
I had a coupon for BOGO burgers. The burgers came
out EXACTLY as I'd ordered them which is a rarity in restaurants
nowadays. The bacon on my burger was the best tasting bacon I've had
anywhere. The waitresses are head
and shoulders above all.
The food has always been good. The perch
is excellent but your burgers are outstanding. Many thanks.
Jim M. Berea OH. 05-30-2013
Loved the Breakfast BLT & Egg with the Bloody Mary! Also, the entire
menu selection is great, and the service friendly & fast!
Joe F. Olmsted Falls Ohio 05-25-2013
What a great place. Found this restaurant a few months ago and have
been going back at least once a week or so to enjoy the food and
service. Especially fond of their crab leg and lake erie yellow perch
dinners! The friendly attitude of the servers was outstanding! They quickly and pleasantly took care of
all our dining needs. The menu selections were numerous and

Tuesday special was very good and the price was right.

Let's see... The Eastland is a place where you can get a burger,
soup, perch, crab legs, pasta, steak, grilled cheese, mussels, or
chicken wings. You can also get a bud light, or a Guinness, grey
goose dirty martini, a bottle of wine, or a single malt on the
rocks. How can they fit all that variety into one-room place that
also holds karaoke contests some nights and genius trivia contests
on other nights?
The first time I came here I was actually about 2 or 3 years old and
it was the free peanuts that brought me in (and my parents). Now,
they still have chex mix sometimes, but it's the $5 pitchers of
Killians on Monday nights that does the trick.
You don't really need a calander to know what time of year it is
when you're here, the place dresses itself up like its going to a
cinco de mayo party or 4th of July cookout. The first time you come,
you feel like you meet everyone that works here. The next time you
come, you get a lot of handshakes, hugs, and 'welcome-backs.' It
just feels like that kinda of place.
Welp, my crab legs are here, so you're going to have to imagine how
good they smell and be jealous. Signing off. - Jay C. (Berea, OH.
Yelp Review 5/5/2013
Everyone RAVES about the perch, and justifiably so. But I am here to
point out the fact that they serve the best fried chicken you can
get in a restaurant...always hot...always crispy...never greasy.
Lynne of Berea 05-04-2013
We had you cater our Son & Daughter-in-law's reception for their
wedding. The food was awesome, and the service/help were fantastic.
We could not have asked for better. I certainly will use you again
when the need arises, will stop in for dinner/lunch and certainly
recommend you and your staff.

perk. Favorite place for date night.
Sandra R., Olmsted Falls Ohio 04/13/2013
I came into town early to be sure to reserve a seat for tomorrow
night's big Kranepool Live show at the Eastland. My son Kranepool
rocks, and my grandson Jay is the best lead guitar around, not to
mention Sera, my grandaughter, who completes the group as a
bedazzling vocalist and crowd inciter. I hope not too many folks
show up, cuz when they do, Kranepool's 50's to present, rock review
gets the crowd into a sing-along frenzy which sometimes gives me a
headache, but then I just order a plate of Dave's Dirty Nachos and
all is good, especially when I wash it down with one of those 14
different kinds of drafts in 28 oz. mugs. Can't wait til

This was our first time dining there. The line was out the door! We
were surprised to see so many people in one small place but figured
it must be good or it wouldn't be crowded. My husband had the Perch
and loved it! Everyone was so nice and friendly. Our server
was wonderful and attentive to our needs. There were a lot of happy
people there! Keep up the good job everyone!
Dee K. Brook Park OH. 03-23-2013

needed him. See you again soon!

Larry & Sheila B., North Royalton OH.
I love coming here. I wanted corned beef and I went to another local
Berea Restaurant but the service there was very slow and unconcerned so I left
there and came here! Once I walked in I was so glad that I left the
other Berea Restaurant. Thank you and keep up the good work!! I think you need
cheddar jalapeņo poppers on the menu. :) ... And thank you for the
free WIFI too.

Maria was our server and went above and beyond to help us out. She
was truly wonderful and is an asset to the organization! We will

for it Cajun style! I tend to do work while I'm eating lunch. This

it. The following week I came in for lunch and the server had it behind
