Well, where to start with this? Start at the start; the parking lot is small and hard to turn around in. Usually one can find parking on the street reasonably close. There is a well lit front entrance facing the main street (Wheeling Ave.) and a dimly lit side door only feet around the corner in the parking lot. Seems... More

Cambridge has a 2 block area featuring mannequins clothed like people from Charles Dickens' era. They featured aspects of life during this time. Plaques accompany each set of figures. The shops are quaint and interesting. Horse drawn carriage rides are available as are trolley tours. Good fun.

Great pizzas, lots of TV screens and friendly service, the Arena is the ONLY place for nighttime in Cambridge. It is truly a locals place, but visitors fit right in - just root for Ohio State if they are playing!

Food is always good here, with a pleasant variety. The Cajun shrimp wrap is super. The Cuban is really good and we also like the sliders. The beer is always cold and there is usually a good selection. The only drawback is that it can sometimes be pretty noisy. So if you're looking for a quiet time maybe this isn't... More

They serve appetizers that are fit to be served as a meal that will fill you up before you order the main menu. Food is yummy to the tummy. Quick meals like burgers, pizzas, onion dippers, etc. Ask for their Aoli Sauce, cause it's to die for with your onion dippers.

I went to watch the Sunday NFL lineups a few times last season. The service is quick and the beer is cold, with a good selection. There are always fans of several teams in there, but no bad blood. Everyone is respectful of the other teams' fans. But the best part, for me, was the menu. There is something for... More

Stumbled upon this place through Trip Advisor. Needed someplace close to the downtown after the Holiday Parade that would please both adults and picky kids. The wait staff was very friendly (though our waitress was pretty clueless about their drink selections from the bar). We were a little worried as the menu was very diverse, but everyone found something they... More

It is just basically a bar but does have descent food. Pretty good menu selection. The wait staff have always been friendly. Pretty much the only place to go on mainstreet in downtown Cambridge.
