Slyman’s Restaurant was founded in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1965 by current co-owners Fred Slyman and Pat D’Onofrio. The company operates a casual, American style restaurant.
The company licensed out the name “Slyman’s” to a small group of restaurants in Northeast Ohio, but there are no franchises at this time. The restaurant is a well-known marker and is so popular that customers are often left waiting outside since the restaurant seats only 60 persons. Slyman and D’Onofrio opened a second location ,which is slightly different from the original, in 2015, called Slyman’s Tavern, which seats 150, as well as offering a to-go menu.
Slyman’s Restaurant offers typical American fare, including chicken, salads, sandwiches, but no alcoholic drinks. Slyman’s Tavern, however, will feature the same basic food items as the restaurant, including a few new options, as well as alcoholic beverages.
