DINING IN CLEVELAND

LOOK NO FURTHER than Bolivar County for true spectacular southern fare.

Bolivar County offers a variety of dining experiences from the down-home to the absolutely
sublime.

Cleveland is a melting pot of delicious cuisine. Whether you are in the mood for fine dining, Japanese, soul food, crawfish, hot tamales, barbecue or burgers, Cleveland restaurants are sure to entice your palate.

We have restaurants that will accommodate large sport teams or even a quiet dinner for two. The Delta is known not just for music and a culturally-rich history, but by regionally-specific foods as well. Barbecue lovers rejoice! Southern-style barbecue is found in many places around Cleveland. From a hot rack of ribs, to a pork sandwich smothered in sauce and covered in homemade slaw, you will find the pig cooked every way from simmered to smoked.

If good old-fashioned soul food is what you are craving, Cleveland has some of the best in the south. Whether you go all-veggie, or a meat and three sides, you are sure to not be disappointed. While you are there, keep an eye out for Led Zeppelin and Delta blues lover Robert Plant; he has been known to come for his fill of the soulful goodness as well. The hot tamale has become legendary and sought-after. The tradition of this Delta staple is a historic tale, and the tamale even found fame in blues songs such as Robert Johnson’s “Red Hot.” Read up on the history of the delicious corn-husked delicacy at www.tamaletrail.com.

Bolivar County even has a few restaurants featured on the interactive trail created by the Southern Foodways Alliance. Whether you like yours with ketchup and saltines, or just by themselves, you certainly won’t be disappointed. Catfish — whether you like yours fried, blackened or grilled — can be found in many of Cleveland’s plentiful dining options. You can find it locally on a buffet, an all-you-can-eat platter, or in a fine dining restaurant. This regional specialty certainly is worth a taste.

Depending on when you visit, there is usually hot and spicy crawfish to be found. There are numerous restaurants that serve up a platter of these crustaceans.
If you are new to the art form of eating these southern delicacies, your server will be more than happy to show you and your party how it’s done. Not only is southern cuisine popular with visitors to Cleveland, but we also have some of the best lunch spots in the region, many within the historic Crosstie shopping district located downtown. From sandwiches and wraps, hot soups and fresh salads, to bakeries, there is a restaurant to satisfy any palate. Whatever international taste you are in the mood for — Italian, Mexican, Chinese or Polish — there is a restaurant in Cleveland to satisfy any craving.

Cleveland adores its multi-cultural cuisine so take your pick and pull up a chair. We are here to serve you. We also have fantastic steak houses, some even with a Cajun flair. From medium rare to a mouth-watering medium, our chefs know how to fire up the grill.

And don’t miss out on dessert. Yogurt Shops, bakeries and coffee shops are there to help with your sweet tooth. Whatever your mood calls for, the dining options in Cleveland and Bolivar County have you covered. Most can accommodate large groups — so call ahead!
