Gunselman’s Tavern

In the dining room of Gunselman’s Tavern the walls are graced with old photographs of a different time, smoking bowlers, a cramped “beer-joint” kitchens and bartenders wearing ties. In the old images what has not changed are frozen memories of friends and family sitting around the bar and tables, simply enjoying themselves and having fun. While the new owners of this Fairview Park landmark cannot bring back ashtrays or convince their bar help to wear more formal attire, they have certainly maintained the friendly atmosphere required to invite smiles, camaraderie and return visits.

As we enjoyed our food, the side patio was readying for a Brown’s game. Beer tents were being erected, tables were being set and fans began to stream-in. Michele had the Fish and Chips, a nicely battered cod with no excess fishiness and even less excess oils. Jeff enjoyed the Black & Bleu Burger with loaded fried. The medium temperature was a bit closer to well, so next time, he will be more careful with the order. The truffle-rosemary topping and garlic aioli sauce were great. Both of us ate way more fries then he should have!

Maintaining the wonderful atmosphere that was so effectively captured in the antique photos was a fabulous, friendly and accommodating staff. They all appeared to enjoy each other and that made a difference in the environment. When our server was busy at another table, one of the other servers checked on our drinks, food, etc. We think we talked to everyone who worked there that day! It is nice to know that new owners not only acquired the building, but also drew on the hospitality vibe found in the black and white memories hanging on the wall. It made a difference. 21490 Lorain Avenue Fairview Park, OH 44126 440-331-5719
