Description: Looking for waterfront dining where the food is as good as the view? Cleats Club Seat Grille Marblehead is a restaurant and bar that attracts diners from all across Ohio. Overlooking the East Harbor Marina, we are a tourist destination where the locals also like to hang out year-round. Touted as "home of the world's best wings," we are known for our award-winning wings. With more than two dozen sauces, including some unique flavors like Erie Island Smoke, Six Pepper and Mojito Lime, the cleats wings are menu staples. Not your typical bar food, we also feature homestyle pizza, burgers, overstuffed sandwiches, shareable appetizers and a Friday fish fry. A family-friendly restaurant, we are your go-to place for sports, community and fellowship. As a premier sports bar with 19 TVs scattered throughout the restaurant and bar, here you can cheer on your favorite team while enjoying delicious food, along with an appreciable selection of beer and cocktails.

While traveling through during a road trip east to west we found this beautiful area and fabulous restaurant. We had dinner outside overlooking the marina and it was honestly perfect. The food was delicious, atmosphere relaxing and staff very attentive. The manager was wonderful, and gave us tips on what to see snd do. recommend for both good and atmosphere

As usual, my husband and I split their turkey avacado stack. What a delicious sandwich.
We sat at the bar. Amy did a top notch job taking care of drinks as well as people ordering off the menu.

We frequent Cleats as we live on Catawba. Place was crowded at 4:10 pm when we stopped for an early dinner. Loved that business is back post COVID but it was loud and sloppy, tables were dirty, and seemed disorganized more than usual. Ordered six wings for a pricy $9.00 told there is a wing shortage and a burger with fries. Waited at least 30 minutes for food, and burger was dry. Wings were okay, nothing special, and server was pretty terrible. Waited another 30 minutes for our check. Our server was playing with the Keno machine on the other side of the bar and we had to ask the bartender for a box. As locals, we get it and are pretty patient but we will think long and hard before a return visit.

First time in the area. Many restaurants were not open yet as it was not yet Memorial Day. We were happy to find a place on the water and bonus of live music (which we’ve not seen since Covid). I really enjoyed my Baja chicken mojoito bowl. My husband got ribs, a little fatty but loved the bourbon sauce. He thought the “water wings” (shrimp) were the best. My pour of Crown was not generous but prices for alcohol were very reasonable. Our waitress was great. Fun atmosphere.

been several times to watch sports and have a few beers that are always cold on draft but food is consistently horrible.I think menu is too varied in attempts to please a lot of folks and that might be the problem. Wings are not meaty and french fries are definitely not hand cut and tasted like they were frozen purchased from a grocery store. Service at bar is good especially when it is busy during Ohio State and Browns games.i

Hi John, Thank you for taking time to share your experience. The best way for us to improve is to see ourselves from our guest perspective.

We are thrilled your service provided was a good, and that your drinks were up to par. However, we apologize that your dining experience missed the mark. While our fries are not fresh cut fries as do strive to bring in quality product for our guests. The past year has brought supply chain issues throughout the industry, and we have been left to work with different product than we usually carry. The good news is these instances are becoming less frequent!

We do make every effort to correct issues at the time of service when brought to a managers attention. If you kindly send us an email to cleatsmarblehead@gmail.com, a member of our management team will reach out to you.
