Shooters on the Water Restaurant Review

: Shooters is a summer hot-spot for Clevelanders looking for an outdoor dining or drinking experience on the west bank of the flats at the mouth of the river. The huge, oblong bar is a handy meeting place after work. (After dark, the crowd gets louder and rowdier, so it's best to take the kids earlier in the evening.) The menu boasts an array of American fare, including pastas, burgers, salads and pizzas. Notable dishes include Southwest nachos; the summer salad with candied almonds, dried cherries and fresh strawberries over a bed of spinach; and the Shooters burger with double-thick bacon, sautéed mushrooms and melted Swiss. Meanwhile, the drinks list features everything from dessert martinis to aged bourbon.
