When Count VonBurger invented the burger during the Ottoman Wars of the late 1300s, he could’ve hardly imagined that a restaurant would bring his prototype “cow edible” to the masses. For $9, today's Groupon gets you $20 worth of burgers, salads, drinks, and more at 56 West in Lakewood.

The Ottomans would still be eating meat today if they had access to 56 West's hearty menu. Pre-concocted meat mounds include the Superfine, wrapped in apple-smoked bacon, caramelized onions, sherried mushrooms, and the 56 Green Goddess sauce ($7.56), and the Friends with Benefits, smothered in chipotle sauce, apple-smoked bacon, Vermont cheddar, and fried onion straws ($7.56). For aspiring burger inventors, 56 West fosters creativity with a bevy of options including meat, chicken, or veggie patties and toppings such as brie, pancetta, and red-curry mayo. 56 West also caters to vegetarians, not by hiding burger meat inside a potato, but by offering a wide variety of salads ($7 each). The French Kiss contains mixed lettuce, wild field greens, caramelized pears, goat cheese, fresh berries, and a balsamic vinaigrette, while the Enticing Encounter is a chilled, crunchy iceberg wedge with crumbled bleu cheese, apple-smoked bacon, grape tomatoes and Green Goddess Dressing.

So you don’t have to drink from the puddles outside, 56 West carries a selection of beers such as the Great Lakes brews, Brooklyn Ales, Redbridge Lager, Thirsty Dog, and many others. The laid-back atmosphere, with modern décor, wood walls, and a cool blue theme, makes it a comfy setting to chow down on a hot and spicy pickle appetizer, made from pickle chips tossed in seasoned flour, beer battered, fried, and served with red-curry dipping sauce, or the Sunday Pajama Brunch, when you're encouraged to show up in your sleeping clothes, whether it's a onesie or a sleeping tuxedo.


Cleveland Magazine and the Plain Dealer give 56 West top marks for its praiseworthy provender:

  • You'll want every morsel of the grilled pork loin special…with plum sauce, and the flat iron steak in the Philly Cheesesteak…Both have the deep vivid flavors of local meat. – Michael Norman, Plain Dealer
  • I went for the One Hot Chick…because of the red curry mayonnaise. The sandwich, adorned with Pepper Jack cheese and spicy fried onion straws, had a perfect texture — equal parts gooey, crisp, sloppy and firm. It filled me up when I was three-quarters done, but I couldn’t resist going back for a few more bites. – Andy Netzel, Cleveland Magazine

Seven Yelpers give the restaurant a solid three stars, and 84% of Urbanspooners recommend it:

  • the fried pickles were ridiculously delicious. the food served is very pleasing to the eyes, as well as to the belly! – Lorrie, Urbanspoon
  • Their Burgers and salads are delicious and definitely ask about their daily grilled cheese special. – norasaurus, Urbanspoon
