For several years now I have purchased gift cards for my daughter and her husband to the Winking Lizard, as this is one of their favorite spots to eat and invite friends to. However, this year was not a great experiences? I purchased a $50.00 Gift card on Dec. 12, 2012, it was charged to my debit card and I even received a comfirmation number. The card was mailed to my home here in Alabama and I presented to my daughter on Christmas morning. So excited to use the card, she and her husband went to the Lizard last night, only to find that the card was NO GOOD?? Really, how embarrasing, for me as well as them. When I called the Lizard I was told this matter could not be handled untilthe next business day, seriously. I am very disappointed in the manner in which this matter was "NOT" handled.

The waitress serving us had the worst attitude. She was very rude, forgot what we had ordered (came back twice), took a near 20 minutes for us to get our drinks. After 30 minutes we had enough and decided to leave.... fast food may have been a better choice. This incident has left a bad taste in my mouth and I will not revisit the Lizard on Coventry.

Cons: Absolutely awful servers

I enjoy this restaurant because of the fun atmosphere and the unique decor. When you first enter the restaurant it looks like a small bar, but then you walk through to the table area and you pass by a huge tank with a real live iguana inside. The tank goes from floor to ceiling and it is really cool. They have a popcorn machine for people to visit at will and the layout of the restaurant is also nice. The service here is friendly and the people have a good light attitude. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

I have visited only this branch of Winking Lizard and I absolutely loved it!! Great atmosphere and good seating area. You can get a vast variety of beer and they are famous for their beer world tour. They have a pretty good happy hour too. Every month they have the "beer of the month" and often you get to keep the glass. I highly recomment this pub for some good times with your friends!

What's not to like about a tavern that has a Lizard in their logo? The Lizard has a wonderful menu with great variety. They have pizza, burgers, and tons of other great menu items. They also have VERY affordable lunch specials on a daily basis. If you're into beer, they offer a GREAT variety of brews from all over the US and around the world. They even do a "World Tour" program where you an earn a free coat. The Lizard is also a great place to watch a Browns game! The only downside is that they tend to have their music a bit too loud.

PROS: Great food and great service, daily lunch specials.
CONS: Loud

We come here after a test to get some good drinks and drown our sorrows. Good decor, and the drinks are reasonably priced. Not too busy, so there's not a long wait for service.

What's not to like? Whether you're meeting up with friends for food and drinks after your softball game or having lunch with co-workers, "The Lizard" is always a hit. Their ribs (and signature BBQ sauce) are excellent. But so are their burgers, wraps, appetizers, salads...everything. If you're a beer drinker you can choose from over 100 beers around the world. If not, their "home brewed" root beer is also very good. Their steak fries are better with their BBQ sauce than catsup. Staff and atmosphere is laid back and casual. Absolutely non-pretentious. Make yourself comfortable and enjoy!

The Lizard rules. It's got at least a hundred different kinds of beer, great food (sandwiches, wings, etc. Things that go with beer, of course) and the service is usually prompt (unless you're there on a busy weekend night). The place even has its own real live lizard mascot, which is usually sleeping as people walk by to be seated.

Definitely check the place out for their wide variety of beers, and stay for the tasty appetizers and sandwiches.

Pros: tasty, laid-back, a real live lizard!

The Winking Lizard is my favorite place to go when I am visiting friends in the area. The food is great and very affordable and the beer selection is incredible. If you are looking for a quiet place to eat, don't go here - the place is always packed and they have televisions everywhere for game-watching. But if you are looking for a lively establishment with a variety of good eats, The Winking Lizard is the place to be!

Editorial from

The Winking Lizard is a Cleveland chain of sports-beer bars serving up standard pub fare. Part of the fun of this establishment is the lingo. For example, chicken tenders become Lizard Lips, and chicken breast sandwiches are found under…
