Food energizes, replenishes, and revitalizes the mind, body, and soul.
Here, we provide a list of famous restaurants and diners in the Cleveland metro area. Use this guide to satisfy your taste buds when either visiting or living in Cleveland.

Blue Pointe Grille
700 W Saint Clair Ave
Cleveland, OH 44113

Description: Blue Point lives up to its name -- you'll bathe in blue inside this Warehouse district establishment. The aquatic aura is fitting, as sea fare is the restaurant's forte. Oysters and sushi are among the house specialties. The oyster sampler will allow you to taste the fine mollusks prepared in a variety of different ways. Sushi, rolled or nigiri style, will please the palates of those who prefer their foods uncooked, while the typical seafood fare is available for traditionalists. Seabass with red curry sauce will delight those looking for something more exotic, while a straight-laced seafood eater will like the swordfish, salmon or even the grouper.

Yours Truly Restaurant
25300 Chagrin Blvd
Beachwood, OH 44122

Description: A quaint, classic local chain, the ambiance at Yours Truly harkens back to a more gracious era of lavender stationery and white gloves. The marketing, management and menu are refreshingly au courant, which is perhaps why this Cleveland-owned septet has endured amid an ever-growing swarm of national chains. The menu's variety is stunning, including everything from peanut butter and jelly to char-grilled tuna steak to a hot Buffalo wrap with tomatoes and gorgonzola dip.

John Q's Steakhouse
55 Public Square
Cleveland, OH 44113

Description: The name is common, but little else is at John Q's steakhouse on Public Square in downtown Cleveland. For nearly two decades, it has reigned as Cleveland's most popular steakhouse, and with good reason. This is steak as it's meant to be eaten: grilled to perfection in disgustingly large cuts. If you must have an appetizer -- delayed gratification, perhaps? -- start off with some cheese-stuffed mushrooms. Then dive into the Major League (20-ounce) New York strip, a cut of prime rib or the house specialty, the black pepper strip steak.

40 Brookmont Rd
Akron, OH 44333

Description: You don't even have to leave your car to experience some of Northeast Ohio's best burgers. In fact, you can't. Swenson's is 100 percent car-side service, with serves darting throughout the parking lot bringing meals to the mobile dining rooms. While certainly qualifying as fast food in genre, Swenson's fare is far better than that. Its hamburgers are famous throughout the region. Other goodies, such as fried mushrooms, onion rings and potato puffs, are also renowned.

Hunan By The Falls
508 E Washington St
Chagrin Falls, OH 44022

Description: If it's possible for a Chinese restaurant to have an upscale Midwestern feel, this one's got it. Although this Hunan isn't exactly right by the Falls -- more like a mile up the road from the tony Chagrin Falls shopping and dining district -- the feel of the place is in keeping with classy and relaxed feel of its namesake. Whether you dine in or order takeout, the offerings are manageable and reasonably priced.

Fanny's Restaurant
353 E. 156th St.
Cleveland, OH 44110

Description: Don't expect any new-fangled cuisine from Fanny's Restaurant. You can expect, however, home-cooked meals that'll fill your tummy with a touch of blue-collar Cleveland. Fanny's is a second home to many of North Collinwood's locals, cops, city workers and even a few politicos. Pull up a chair, have one of Fanny's old-fashioned servers pour a cup of hot coffee while you ponder the choices: For meat-lovers, try the juicy patty melt; if you crave the ethnic touch, try the hearty potato pancakes.

Mustard Seed Market & Café
6025 Kruse Dr
Solon, OH 44139

Description: Although the Mustard Seed is a health food store, labeling its cafe a "healthy" restaurant can give the wrong impression. Like its parent store 30 miles south in Akron, this Mustard Seed Cafe is a full-service restaurant. (It seats about 190 people.) The "healthy" menu hardly means everything is cooked in a clear broth; surprisingly, it includes steaks, ribs, fried entrees and an extensive wine list -- not all from organically grown grapes and certainly not nonalcoholic. That said, the meals are made from fresh ingredients and cooked in a healthful fashion.

Mama Santa's
12305 Mayfield Road
Cleveland, OH 44106

Description: Mama Santa's pizza has a legendary presence in historic Little Italy -- patrons will walk by the neighborhood's ritzier bistros to actually wait in line for one of Mama's homemade pies. The ambience is super casual and a great place to get in touch with one's inner teenager -- checked tablecloths and Chianti bottles are the sole efforts to dress up the wood-paneled dining rooms. Sicilian home-style dishes include all the staples; fettucini is available with garlic and oil, red sauce, and a variety of other sauces and toppings.

Marcelita's Mexican Restaurant
7774 Darrow Rd
Hudson, OH 44236

Description: This wildly popular Mexican spot is both family-friendly and first-date-worthy. Though it's outrageously busy on the weekends, the option to while away the time waiting for a table in La Cantina, enjoying some of northeastern Ohio's most highly regarded margaritas, is an appealing one. La Cantina also has a glass enclosed patio dining area with its own charm. For over 20 years, Marcelita's has presented fine Mexican cooking, including fantastic wet burritos, available with vegetable, pork, seafood, and beef fillings.

Pier W
12700 Lake Ave
Lakewood, OH 44107

Description: The interior features a predictably nautical theme, but no one comes to Pier W to look at the walls. This is a place for gazing out at the breathtaking lake or skyline views -- or into the eyes of a dining companion, since Pier W is also known as one of Cleveland's most romantic spots. The menu constantly changes to incorporate the day's fresh catch, but some staples include a marvelous scallop fettuccini, which features an appetizing melange of bacon, mushroom and basil flavors. The seafood platter includes crab cakes, grilled salmon and sesame-crusted shrimp.

Ruth's Chris Steak House
28699 Chagrin Blvd Cleveland, OH 44122

Johnny's Downtown
1406 W. 6th Street Cleveland, OH 44113

Dave & Buster's
25735 First Street Westlake, OH 44145

Chipotle Mexican Grill
14881 Detroit Ave Cleveland, OH 44107

Panini's on East 9th
840 Huron Rd. Cleveland, OH 44115

Shooters Waterfront Café
1148 Main Ave Cleveland, OH 44113

Pearl of the Orient
19300 Detroit Road Rocky River, OH 44116

Carrabba's Italian Grill
5030 Tiedeman Rd Cleveland, OH 44144
