    C-Town Steeler Bars (In The Belly of the Beast)

    Over the years, buckeyehoppy has taken a lot of flak over being a Steeler fan here in Cleveland. What can I say...I prefer to watch football, Clowns fan prefers to watch an abortion.

    In that time, I have always found spots where I can watch the Steelers and enjoy some camaraderie. I could get DreckTV, but I prefer to run up a bar tab and enjoy the game when I can't watch at home among those who count themselves among the Steeler Universe.

    In Cleveland, the following are just some of the places where I have either found or have heard that the Steeler Universe congregates en masse and proudly proclaims the greatness of the Pittsburgh Steelers:

    Blue Moose Saloon
    5513 Ridge Rd
    Parma, OH
    440.885.2583

    Harpo's Sports Cafe
    http://www.GoHarpos.com
    5777 Smith Rd
    Cleveland, OH
    216.267.7777

    Winking Lizard Tavern-5 Locations
    http://www.winkinglizard.com
    1852 Coventry Road
    Cleveland Heights, OH
    216.397.8380

    25380 Miles Road
    Bedford Heights, OH
    216.831.3488

    14018 Detroit Ave.
    Lakewood, OH
    216.226.6693

    6901 Rockside Road
    Independence, OH
    216.524.2226

    511 E. Aurora Road (Rt. 82)
    Macedonia, OH
    330.467.6200

    Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar
    http://www.buffalowildwings.com
    32914 Walker Road
    Avon Lake, OH
    440.933.7325

    Of the above, I have found the Blue Moose to be the premiere Steeler bar in Cleveland. I am planning on getting in touch with the Steel City Mafia to make this place the official home of Steeler fans in Cleveland.

    I either have first hand knowledge of the Steeler faithful at all of the above listed places or have heard enough from fans to be comfortable to list the rest.

    There are, most assuredly other Steeler joints in the Belly of the Beast. I need the Steeler faithful in Cleveland to pipe up here and add to the list if your place hasn't been included. The place should come with a description and why it is a proven spot for Steelers fans to hang.

    Go Steelers!!!

    It's the off-season. But I feel it necessary to modify my original list here and add a bar to the list that is THE best out of all the potential Steeler spots in the Greater Cleveland area.

    The new bar on the list is a genuine Steeler hang and is managed by some folks from Da 'Burgh:

    RIVALS SPORTS GRILLE
    6710 Smith Rd
    Middleburg Heights, OH
    216.267.0005


    Rivals has a very good beer selection, including Iron City in bottles and lots (over 20, by my count) of beer on draught. Rivals also has above average food offerings for a bar. For those in Cleveland, this bar is the real deal for the Steeler Nation and is highly recommended for those in town or visiting for any reason.

    The original list (included in the first post in this thread) is still, more or less, accurate. Blue Moose Saloon is still a very good spot to be a Steelers fan on any given Sunday. But, the service, beer selection and food offerings are all better at Rivals. The Blue Moose, just as a bar in comparison to Rivals, needs to work a bit on their overall facility. But, as a Steelers bar, the Blue Moose and Rivals share the broadcast of the game AND has the sound of the broadcast as well. If the beer and food offerings aren't an issue, either bar will do.

    But the relative friendliness of any of the Winking Lizard locations or of Harpo's must be taken on a case-by-case basis, as I have heard of a few incidents that would be discouraging for Steelers fans going to those spots. It may help if you know a member of the Black and Gold Faithful who watches the games at these spots before going to watch a game there.

    Where do you watch the games hoppy? Do you have to go to one of those aforementioned
    bars or do you have the Sunday Ticket?
