Comfortable bar and grill with outdoor seating.
This place reads first as a bar, thanks to the TV monitors, dim lighting, and, well, the enormous bar, but there's also an extensive menu that includes salads, pizza, sandwiches, and entrees plus daily specials during the week. Weekend brunch features a Bloody Mary bar. There's a good selection of reasonably priced beer. Most of the walls are covered with murals on no particular theme—a Buddha on one, an abstract painting on another, naked ladies in the bathroom.
Payment Type: American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa
The flat-screen TVs, $13 beer buckets, and Jaeger bomb specials scream "douchey sports bar!," but Cleos is actually a fun and comfortable place to hang out. The 12 good (and OK) beers on tap—including a rotating beer of the month—are reasonably priced, and the kitchen serves up some excellent bar food, including delicious crispy beer-battered fish tacos. A nice patio out back opens up during the warmer months. —Luca Cimarusti
