WEWS - Cleveland, Ohio

New haunted house-themed restaurant opening soon in Cleveland Heights

the haunted house restaurant in cleveland heights ohio

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio — There’s a new eatery in Cleveland Heights promising a scary good time for its customers.

The Haunted House Restaurant will have its grand opening on Jul. 20.

It's a collaboration between Ryan Gullatt, and his partners Andre Scott, Jeremiah Burks, and Christopher Thomas.

Scott said he, Burks, and Thomas were looking to get into the restaurant industry. They purchased the old Melt Bar and Grilled on Cedar Road and South Taylor Road earlier this year and Scott reached out to Gullatt for ideas about a concept.

“In 15 minutes he had a whole concept of the haunted house restaurant, I mean from top to bottom,” Scott said.

Gullatt has been a fan of the horror film genre from a young age, so he took inspiration from some of the classics.

“I love horror movies, like my parents would always take me to see Freddy Krueger—'Nightmare on Elm Street', 'Child's Play',” Gullatt said. “It would be so cool if there was a restaurant, based off of horror movie characters, paying homage to horror movies and thrillers.”

Gullatt also said he was inspired after eating at SuperChef’s, a restaurant near Columbus owned by Darnell “SuperChef” Ferguson. Ferguson is a regular on food competitions shows on Food Network.

“He calls himself the SuperChef because he's an amazing chef, but he took the super and he has superheroes throughout his restaurant, and his menu is based off of superhero characters,” Gullatt said.

The horror movie influences Gallett enjoys are plastered everywhere throughout the restaurant. The foyer is designed like a movie theater, with the box office acting as the hostess stand.

“When you come in, you smell hot buttered popcorn,” Gullatt said. “Because initially your senses—if you smell hot buttered popcorn you think about the movies, so as soon as you walk in and you smell the popcorn, you see the marquee up in the ticket booth, you get it. That's what it's about.”

The gourmet menu features dishes named after horror flick characters, and an all-day breakfast component.

“The biggest thing is the brinner. Brinner is breakfast all day, breakfast for dinner. That is one thing that a lot of people love. We have, like, the Jigsaw, we have the Shaggy, so it's like we have normal items but he puts a twist on it,” Gullatt said. “Our appetizers are amazing. A lot of people like our Scooby Snacks—that's the nachos. The Critters, by the way I named them Critters because Critters was actually called the cheesiest movie of all time, and that's our mozzarella sticks.”

There are also spooky surprises, including a Purge birthday celebration when the siren heard in the film plays throughout the restaurant.

“Then, it transfers over to Stevie Wonder's 'Happy Birthday' so everybody's singing happy birthday, so then it becomes a great element. They love that,” Gullatt said.

Despite the scary theme, Gullatt said the Haunted House is friendly for the whole family and the entire community.

“We want kids of all ages, people of all ages to come in and have fun,” Gullatt said. “It’s bigger than us, you know what I’m saying, it doesn't matter the ethnicity. It's because we all go to see scary movies and that brings us together.”

Despite nationwide staffing shortages, hiring is not a problem for the Haunted House

Last week, the Haunted House Restaurant hosted soft openings for family, friends, and guests who were able to snag a reservation.

“Thursday, it looked like a grand opening. I mean, it was crazy,” Scott said.

Scott said many people questioned their timing for opening the restaurant since many restaurants are still struggling to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I think the timing actually was perfect. Yeah, I think we're gonna benefit from the timing,” Scott said.

Even though restaurants all over the country are dealing with staffing shortages right now, Scott they’re experiencing the complete opposite.

“We’ve been overwhelmed with staff,” Scott said. “We had about 118 people come for our first open interviews.”

Ohio Restaurant Association president and CEO John Barker said that’s not the case for the bulk of the industry.

“We're getting some trickle back, people coming back to apply and showing interest in coming back to work,” Barker said. “We’re hopeful, but we still have a long way to go.”

Barker said the end of the extra $300 in federal unemployment benefits in Ohio plays a role in people looking for work, but more things are keeping people away like concerns about child care and transportation issues.

So how are some businesses like the Haunted House attracting workers?

“I don't think there's any luck involved. I think new concepts are always going to be attractive to some people,” Barker said. “I think people that have something that's differentiated are going to be in a better position as well. So if you're the four-star rated steakhouse in one of our neighborhoods, you probably get some additional people who are willing to go work there.”

Barker said how workers are treated plays a role too.

“You have a really good operation, treat your people well, you have good culture, you pay competitively, you might have some benefits, it's the whole package. And you really take care of your folks,” Barker said.

That’s something Scott agrees with.

“It's something new, something that we want to create a fun atmosphere here,” Scott said.

Plus, he promises his employees a chance for something more than just a job.

“We want to create careers, not just a job where you punch in and out, we want to create careers here, we're looking to expand in other states,” Scott said.

Even though the Haunted House Restaurant is doing well attracting workers, the owners are always looking for more talent. The restaurant has open interviews every Tuesday and Thursday from 1 to 3 p.m. They’re looking for talented people for every position including hosts, servers, bartenders, line cooks, and more.

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio — It’s almost time to face your fears at a new restaurant that’s serving up some scares with eerie eats in Cleveland Heights.

Welcome to The Haunted House Restaurant , which opened to the general public Tuesday, July 20. This spooky spot, which is located at 13463 Cedar Road, takes over the space once home to a Melt Bar & Grilled .

So what freaky surprises can you expect inside The Haunted House Restaurant? Well, it's like Halloween all year long.

The restaurant was designed to be fun. As you enter the doors there's a movie box office and artwork of classic horror and thriller movies. Not to mention, there's popcorn too.

Owner Andre Scott said the concept was brought to life because of his godbrother Ryan Wolf, who's a DJ for the Cleveland Browns. "Within 15 minutes, Ryan had a dope concept, said Scott.

"The restaurant is a concept for experience, for fun creative families," Scott added.

The wait staff and kitchen crew wasted no time as they hustled to take orders and give the guests a unique experience on opening day.

Scott told 3News, "When you come here, it's not just a dine in, it's a full experience like you're going to Cedar Point."

He also added the restaurant is open for brunch on the weekends and encourages guests to check out the new spot.

We streamed live footage from the restaurant's opening Tuesday morning, which you can watch in the player below:

Creepy décor features detailed artwork of some of horror’s most infamous icons like Pennywise the clown from IT , Jason Voorhees of the Friday the 13th series, Frankenstein’s monster and more. Scary movie posters line the walls with a sign declaring: "Only thing scary is how good the food is.”

The Haunted House Restaurant

the haunted house restaurant in cleveland heights ohio

Ratings and reviews

Food and ambience, location and contact.

Service and food menu need to be worked on…Atmosphere & theme, great idea! Received appetizers before water/drinks, waited about 10 min before we ever saw a server, menu needs to be scaled down to simplistic items ie tenders and fries, steak(not even a menu option)... without all the fancy stuff, leave that as a side option or something, this is not for a picky eater but even my pizza was disgusting, partially cooked attested like plastic, friends Long Island was made with flat coke and tasted awful, the table next to us didn’t like their pizza, salad or burger. Just to much excess items.. server couldn’t remember which drink I ordered after I drank it and already gave me my check, slow terrible service the reviews are not wrong… need to rethink food menu, service and truck supplier honestly. More

the haunted house restaurant in cleveland heights ohio

Massively overrated. This is basically a regular bar and grill with some pictures of horror icons on the wall. There just isn't anything special about dining here, nothing. The novelty labled food is fine and priced ok although the drinks are ridiculously overpriced. They were... terribly understaffed and had 1 person juggling 10 tables. There's no "haunted house" or "mystery" vibe here at all. As extra inconvenience, there is basically no parking at or near the location. Don't waste your time. More

We stopped at this restaurant, because my partner is a horror fan. We were not disappointed with the atmosphere. There were several horror movies playing, as well as horror themed murals and décor throughout. The food was pretty good for the most part, the specialty... burgers we ordered were missing an item, and could have used more aioli, but tasted okay . The kids got a potion bowl, which was really overpriced for an adult glass worth of juice, your pretty much paying for the look. The main issue we had was that even though it was a horror restaurant, I researched it extensively because we were taking our kids, and our oldest hates horror. The movies playing, I knew about, and we just had the kids sit where they couldn't see anything to gory or scary, but we were not aware that they had people walk around in costumes for the restaurant, and my daughter about lost it when a person came out of know where and stood by our table. I know that is on us, for coming to a horror themed restaurant, but as a place that was still being labeled as family friendly both in reviews and in their ads, I just wish I would have know, and we would have avoided taking the kids there. Overall would recommend for anyone who is a fan of horror, but if you have younger kids, just make sure they are able to handle some of the more interactive parts of the "show". More

The restaurant has a environment set up, but there was just bad business the night we had reservations. We had 9pm reservations and the restaurant was reservation only, according to lady when I made reservations . Checked in at 845 pm and at 945 the... hostess stated they were still seating 8:00 reservations, we called our lyft to pick us up and they finally called our table at 10:00pm, but we already made arrangements for our ride. There were open tables, would not have been bad if we were at least seated and could have had a drink. Hostess was rude when asked how long of a wait we were looking at, not sure we will attempt this place again due to the distance we drove to check this place out. #hauntedcle be prepared to wait. More

I didn't know what to expect when we decided to try this place, and our experience was so great! There were scary movies playing on the TVs and the hostess station looked like a movie theater ticket window. There was an MC that led the... trivia, games and we even did a little line dancing! But I can't say enough about the food!! It was so unique and upscale. We got the mozzarella sticks which I think they called Critters and you could tell that they were made in the restaurant and not just dumped out of a bag into the fryer. The Chucky egg rolls had chicken, macaroni and cheese, greens and sweet potato puree inside. They were so interesting and the presentation was beautiful. The Frankinfish tacos were made with the most perfectly cooked salmon. They have a brinner menu which is breakfast/dinner dishes and my sister had a black waffle with BBQ chicken wings on top and I went with the Lurch burger well done. I prefer a medium well burger, but I know it's safer to have it well done and I could not believe how tender and juicy it was. This was the BEST BURGER I've ever had at a restaurant for real. The place is fairly new and still trying to figure out the menu, but I hope they keep it limited and just rotate dishes. As long as they keep it amazing, though, I'll keep coming back! And a huge shout out to our waiter, Josh, who's first day it was but he was absolutely fantastic! We had such a wonderful time! More

Place is super overrated not at all what we thought it would be. First I made a reservation because we had a party of nine. Well you can’t cancel or you’re charged $10 per guest. We arrived at 4:55 because our reservation was for 5... told to wait outside because they don’t open until 5 but yet door was open. We expected dressed up spooky outfits not just a tight bodysuit. There was no people walking around dressed up and the Devore was nothing to write home about in fact my basement is more spooky than the whole place. Food is way overpriced and the drink menu is highway robbery too. Our food was not good at all just warm and the fries and waffles tasted like old grease. Our kids hated everything about it and they were the ones that bagged us to go. Don’t waste your time and money. More

Was taken here today for a surprise birthday brunch. Drove 2 hours and was really disappointed. My Texas Chainsaw burger was ok, not great. My dad ordered all you can eat pancakes (come in stacks of 3) and didn’t even finish the first stack. Bottoms... were burnt and they were very doughy. His side of hash browns were brought cold, but his sausage patties were ok. My husband’s order was brought cold, and our friend never even got his order after an hour of waiting, nor did my husband get his order after sending the cold order back. Several waitresses stopped by and apologized for the food being brought out at different times and also for not receiving some of our food, but continually said it would be out soon, but never arrived. We finally told them to cancel the order. We definitely were very disappointed in the food and will never go back. More

Went for brunch. Made a reservation a month in advance. Didn’t have to wait long when we got there and they weren’t extremely busy, but service was slow. Ordered our food, and when they brought all the food out they told me that they ran... out of crab (for my crab cakes) and I had to order something else. Would have been nice to have known that before all of the other food was made and brought out. By the time I got my food, everyone else was pretty much done eating. Food wasn’t bad, but nothing that special. Only gave it a third star because the theming and atmosphere was pretty cool. More

My daughter treated me to an early Mother’s Day brunch at the unexpectedly delightful Haunted House Restaurant and I am all the better for it! Our friendly server started us off with the popcorn with your flavor additives available at the table and promptly took... our drink order. We happily munched as we watched a Freddy feature and a little I Know What You Did Last Summer. I selected the Lobster BLT and my daughter chose the Slimer Burger and we opted to share the roasted Brussels sprouts. We were not disappointed. The outstanding meal was made ever better because we got to witness a special birthday celebration. Be sure to take time to enjoy the murals on your way to the bathroom. A great place for the horror movie or foodie in your life More

Atmosphere was amazing, food was hot and delicious. Service was lacking. Once seated for our 600 reservation no one approached our table or greeted us for almost 10 minutes. Once our server came he immediately took our order, and we didn’t see him again until... we were almost done with our meals. The shaggy was amazing, the birdbox chicken sandwich was also delicious, the coleslaw on it was so yummy! We also tried the pennywise, lacked some flavor, but was still good. The drinks were fun and interactive, while it said 51ounces, I feel like most of that was ice; a lot of ice. My kids enjoyed the trivia that they did every hour, first was name that tune to the movie, followed by name that quote from the movie. The characters that walked around made for an interactive experience and my boys definitely loved that. Overall the restaurant experience was great, just the service was seriously lacking. More

We had a reservation for Sunday at 11 and had a great experience. We were seated immediately and greeted by our server, who brought us popcorn to munch on. There were popcorn flavors on the table with the condiments that you could add, which was... nice. We ordered coffee and water for our drinks, which our server did a great job keeping up with throughout our meal. I ordered the Shaggy, which was delicious and perfectly portioned. My boyfriend ordered the Pennywise, which was a huge portion and he also really enjoyed it. The food came out really quickly and was hot. The atmosphere was cool, there’s horror movies playing on tvs around the restaurant, movie posters and character figurines around the restaurant. We really enjoyed our visit and would come back! More

We booked reservations in July to visit from Columbus. Our wait following check-in was only about 15-minutes, and the lobby has really cool wall art and horror films playing on a television. Nightmare on Elm Street was on, my favorite, so our wait flew by.... Amina was our server, and she was super friendly and had great recommendations. The emcee kept everyone engaged and entertained with sporadic dance parties, games, and trivia. Freddy and Jason wandered the restaurant spooking guests. We survived 2 purge birthday celebrations too! We had such a great time!! More

Pros: we got seated quickly and the art work is amazing. Cons: Our food was cold. They were out of the drink we originally wanted. So we got our second choice. Our drink was $35 for a 51 oz glass that was mostly ice and... prob 2 oz of liquor. She only gave us one straw and brought us another one 15 minutes later. Also, I'm pretty sure they didn't clean the glass. I'm allergic to tequila and I had started to have an allergic reaction but our drink was only supposed to contain vodka. Also, we were supposed to keep the cup as a souvenir but the waitress asked for it back. Probably to rinse it out and make another one in it. 🤣 Our pizza wasn't cut and we had no napkins and then when it was sent back to get cut it came back in rectangles and triangles. There was supposed to be movie characters dressed up for photo ops. Literally no one was there. More

Made a reservation for The Purge experience. Still waited 20/30 minutes to be seated. Once seated our waitress while nice was slooowww. There was 11 of us seated at a 10 top table and we had two cancel issue number one. Issue two our food... came out incorrectly made, example one person specifically asked for no bacon he can't have it guess what he got bacon and got sick after because bacon and then received for desert the smallest sliver of cheesecake for 11.00 . Birthday girls food came last some of us were already done eating thats how long it took.The servers who brought the food out were rude if the dish they brought out was incorrect they left and didnt ask how to make it right. The "manager "took no responsibility for the lack of order obviously happening in the kitchen. Issue number 3 I booked this for my best friends 50th Birthday thinking her meal was free. It was not its very misleading advertising. Its 15% off the return visit. Her meal was comped because it was the last to be served because it was forgotten I guess idk. Lastly the Purge experience consisted of a masked man and two servers twirling lights and asking other patrons to say happy birthday, lame if you ask me. I digress the food was good when it was correct but they were clearly under staffed for such a busy restaurant. I cant recommend going back. More

This place is pretty cool. The decor is spooky. I loved that one of my favorite movies, Casper, was playing when I walked in. We didn’t have a wait and was seated promptly. I ordered their special The Twilight. It’s a black waffle with fried... wings. My friend ordered the Slimer. It’s a waffle with sausage, cheese, egg, and bacon. Both were equally tasty. We didn’t have silverware given to us so we ended up eating it without. When we were done eating, the server came up with our silverware which was too late at that point. This is why I gave 4/5 for my rating. At one point the servers got together and did a line dance to a popular song. We enjoyed seeing that. All in all, we had a fun time. Will return again in the future. More

The Haunted House Restaurant attracts new visitors

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio — The year-round Haunted House Restaurant shines this Halloween season as people from all over the country travel to the Cleveland Heights destination.

What You Need To Know

The haunted house restaurant in cleveland heights attracts people from around the country     halloween is sort of like their super bowl the restaurant has evolved since opening in 2021.

Ryan "Shug" Gilkerson calls himself the good thrill ambassador at The Haunted House Restaurant.

And Halloween, well, it's sort-of like their super bowl.

"We wanted to have a concept that brought something really unique to Cleveland, something that made a tourist destination for us here in Cleveland," he said.

Gilkerson said the restaurant has evolved since it opened in 2021 . 

"It was interesting at the beginning, you know, it was a slow start," he said. "We were still wearing masks, and not the fun kind, when we opened. It was pretty ambitious to think we could do it, but luckily the strength of the concept of the menu drove us to be able to remain open during that time, and now we’re stronger than ever two years after that."

Guests come in from across the country for special birthday celebrations. The restaurant has a movie-themed menu that includes nonalcoholioc Casper's kid-friendly bowls and haunted potion bowls for adults. They've also had visits from horror movie stars from Jason to Freddy to Michael Myers.

"Last week, we had people from Massachusetts and Alaska here at the same time that came to Cleveland because they wanted to eat dinner with Michael Myers because they saw him dance on TikTok," Gilkerson said.

He said it's the good food, horror movie inspired artwork and cast of characters that keep people coming back for more.

"There’s such a great population of people that love horror movies," he said. "It’s nostalgia. It takes them back to their childhood."

What Does Horror Taste Like? ‘Carnage Asada’ and Bloody Cocktails

An unlikely side effect of the pandemic: An uptick in terror-themed restaurants with creative names and even more creative menus.

There are many ways restaurant décor can say welcome: fresh flowers, linen tablecloths, soft lighting.

At Terror Tacos in St. Louis, the welcome is rendered in blood — actually, lurid red paint that covers one wall in long drips, like the macabre drapery that Satan’s gnarled hand might pull back to usher the damned into hell.

Bradley Roach and Brian Roash, brothers and self-described horror-movie geeks, opened Terror Tacos in March. (They spell their surnames differently.) As head chef, Mr. Roach put together an all-vegan menu of tacos and burritos featuring his housemade “carnage asada” seitan. Mr. Roash, an artist who handles the restaurant’s marketing, painted the frightful artwork, including a screaming woman’s face that resembles Shelley Duvall’s in “The Shining.” The band Cradle of Filth often growls over the speakers.

The restaurant’s brew of horror, extreme metal and veganism is what’s drawing repeat customers, Mr. Roach said, including hard-core carnivores. “They come back not necessarily because the food is plant-based,” he said. “They’re just excited to eat in a place that’s bizarre.”

Terror Tacos is one of several gore-obsessed restaurants that have opened across the country since last Halloween , despite the pandemic and its restrictions on dining. It’s hard to say why. Perhaps horror fans are living their now-or-never dreams. Maybe the restaurants are an antidote to the cheeriness of corporate chains.

Find Halloween recipe inspiration at New York Times Cooking.

Or maybe they’re a positive response to a world that feels broken. When reality can’t seem to get much darker than it is, Mr. Roash said, a visit to a restaurant like Terror Tacos isn’t as intimidating as it might have been earlier. “You’d never want to equate terror with your brand, because people might think our tacos are terrible,” he said. “But we’ve been terrified for two years, and people can relate to a screaming face.”

These new places arrive as horror films and television shows have become hugely popular and profitable during the pandemic, and have even helped some people cope better with their anxieties , according to a study published last year in the journal Personality and Individual Differences.

Coltan Scrivner, one of the study’s authors, said horror restaurants can be a safe way to have fun with frightening things in distressing times.

“At a horror restaurant, nobody is afraid,” said Mr. Scrivner, a behavioral scientist at the University of Chicago who studies morbid curiosity , or why terrifying experiences appeal to people. “It sends a signal that even if something looks scary, it might not be so bad.”

Unlike haunted houses , horror-themed restaurants aren’t out to give anyone an actual fright — they’re more “ Frankenweenie ” scary than “ Cannibal Holocaust ” scary. The look is heavy on movie posters and impish design.

Puns are also a big part of the experience. The Witching Hour , a food trailer that opened in July in Bentonville, Ark., offers the “Friday the 13th”-inspired Jason S’morehees, a s’mores pie “served as cold as Jason in the bottom of the lake.” The Brewed , a Chicago coffee shop set to open in January, nods to David Cronenberg ’s horror movie “ The Brood .”

At the Haunted House Restaurant in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, the ambience screams Saturday matinee, not midnight grindhouse. The reception area is designed like a movie box office with a colorful mural depicting creatures like Frankenstein’s monster and Pennywise the Clown. As the seafood pizza makes its way to a table, the ominous musical refrain from “Jaws” plays on a speaker.

Andre Scott, one of four partners who opened the restaurant in July, doesn’t consider himself a horror fan. “I’d watch a documentary before I’d watch a horror movie,” he said. But when it came time to pick a theme, the partners’ vote was unanimous.

“Horror movies bring everybody together,” Mr. Scott said. “It doesn’t matter your race or anything else. I love more than anything, especially with all the hatred going on in the world, to see people enjoy the concept.”

The look of an old horror author’s dark study inspired the design for Cloak & Dagger , a cocktail lounge that opened a year ago just outside downtown Cleveland. The walls are painted pitch-black, and, as at Terror Tacos, the menu is vegan.

The ornate menus read like books, with ghoulish mini-stories for each cocktail. One of the featured drinks is You Can Still See the Red, a mix of cask-strength Sagamore rye, Punt e Mes (a sweet vermouth), housemade mulled wine syrup, beet powder and lemon.

“It looks like blood,” said Cory Hajde, an owner.

A vegan menu adds an anti-establishment feel that may draw horror lovers — a fan base that Mr. Scrivner said is curious about imagined violence but generally resistant to actual bloodshed.

“There’s this sense that horror fans lack empathy, because how else could they enjoy horror?” Mr. Scrivner said. “But a lot of horror fans are so empathetic that they don’t want to eat animals.”

Horror-themed dining has a history as long as a mummy’s wrap. The costumed characters at the Jekyll & Hyde Club in the West Village of Manhattan have been creeping people out for 30 years. Blairstown Diner , in northwestern New Jersey, became a hot spot after it was featured in the original “Friday the 13th” in 1980. And Muriel’s Jackson Square , a 20-year-old restaurant in the French Quarter of New Orleans, has its own ghost: Legend has it that the spirit of the building’s former owner, Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan, dwells in the second-floor Seance Lounge.

The undead have ruled Zombie Burger , with two locations in the Des Moines area, for 10 years. George Formaro, the chef and co-owner, said the zombie theme has worked — even though he’s more partial to old-school monsters like Dracula and the Mummy — because “horror movies were a big deal in my childhood.”

“I think the burger and the horror movie hold nostalgia for people,” said Mr. Formaro, who was once a semifinalist for a James Beard award for the nation’s Best Restaurateur. He has a tattoo of Freddy Krueger’s glove and other horror villain accessories tattooed on his forearm. “Nostalgia is my most favorite ingredient to work with these days.”

In May, Jared Bradley and Rebecca Vega opened Raven’s Manor , a haunted-mansion-style cocktail lounge in Portland, Ore. The menu features a black-bread Grilled Cheese of Darkness and a brain-shaped vegan meatloaf called Cerebral Matter.

A trail of blood leads to an underground laboratory where patrons wear lab coats and create cocktails during an “elixir experience.” The session is led by various characters, including Dr. Creeps, the assistant to the bar’s fictional Dr. Raven, a 19th-century physician who kidnapped and experimented on his party guests in a quest for immortality.

Mad scientists, a possessed mansion, spectral visions: If it sounds like a night with cartoon sleuths and their Great Dane, Ms. Vega doesn’t disagree. “I grew up with ‘Scooby-Doo,’” she said. “It was my gateway to horror.”

For Cailee Holmes, who since Aug. 13 — a Friday, of course — has run a pop-up restaurant called the Crypt in a test kitchen in Salem, Mass., there is a crossover between horror fans and people who work in the restaurant industry, with its nocturnal shifts and sleep-filled days. It’s like “a ‘Lost Boys’ kind of life,” she said, referring to the 1987 film about heartthrob vampires.

“You have to have a thick skin to work in a restaurant, to be able to take things as they come at you,” Ms. Holmes said. “People who love horror, who are so desensitized to blood and guts, they can work in restaurants because not much bothers them.”

At Terror Tacos, Mr. Roash said business had surpassed his expectations, an achievement he credits to the food, of course, but also to that bloody-looking wall and the desire “to explore elements of my personality that I didn’t have time to do before.” Horror, he said, was the right call.

“A restaurant with pastel green walls and hearts and love is a formula that can succeed,” he said. “But I’m tired of that formula. Why not be yourself?”

Cleveland bar owners MacGyver their way around NBC-DirecTV blackout to broadcast Browns-Texans playoff game

  • Marc Bona, cleveland.com

CLEVELAND, Ohio – A television contractual dispute between Tegna and assorted providers is squeezing local bar owners who are resorting to resourceful ways to broadcast Saturday’s Cleveland Browns playoff game.

Anyone in Greater Cleveland – individuals, bars, restaurants or other places – probably will not be able to watch the game via AT&T’s U-Verse, DirecTV or DirecTV Stream services. That’s because of the ongoing carriage dispute between the provider and Tegna, parent company of local NBC affiliate WKYC. “Probably” because there is a chance the dispute will be over by kickoff, but that’s highly doubtful.

The last time the Browns made the playoffs was in 2021, when they beat Pittsburgh and then lost to Kansas City. The anticipated excitement for the Cleveland-Houston Wild Card game is there for fans, who most likely will seek watering holes across Greater Cleveland to chow on some wings and quaff beers as they cheer the Browns. But some bar owners who subscribe to one of the disputed providers are sweating out how they can broadcast the game.

John Lane of the Winking Lizard , which has multiple locations across Greater Cleveland, has figured a creative workaround: The bar will broadcast the game via the Spanish-language network Telemundo.

“We’re going to have the game but no sound,” Lane said. “We’re going to have the game on one of the Spanish channels.”

Lane, who said the restaurant is adding a channel to its system for the game, has had experience with this. The Winking Lizard found this workaround a while ago for a game that Lane was guessing involved Ohio State.

He said a representative from DirecTV has been helpful and that when a similar dispute involved Spectrum a few years ago, rebates were offered to bars. That’s critical to help cover potential losses, because businesses pay hefty amounts to providers for channels and football - obviously – is a big draw.

“We’re trying to work out some kind of sound, but we think most people might get frustrated if we try to pump it through a radio and have Jim Donovan on,” Lane said. “We know that’s not going to match up with what we’re viewing. It might lead to more frustration if you’re listening to Jim Donovan say, ‘Oh, and the Browns just scored!’ and you’re not seeing it on TV until 30 seconds later.”

People can listen on their phones if they want, he said.

The issue of not being able to broadcast a game in a certain market is a business-to-business dispute, but it’s not unfamiliar for sports fans. The NFL once had a longstanding policy of blacking out games in a 75-mile radius of home markets that did not sell enough tickets.

In fact, the Browns’ last championship, in 1964, was not shown locally. Fans famously drove to places like Erie, Pennsylvania, to leave the blackout radius. And the final home game of the 1995 season also was blacked out. It was an ignoble ending to the season, because it was right before Art Modell moved the team.

But now, it’s more of a selective blackout resulting from the DirecTV-Tegna squabble. And that’s forcing some folks to put on their problem-solving hats.

Shaun Yasaki of Noble Beast Brewing Co. , which has five televisions in its cozy spot on Lakeside Avenue, spent the past few days crafting a Plan B.

“We’re not set up to receive broadcast from regular old antennas,” he said. “We have DirecTV. We’ve had to go out and buy a whole bunch of antennas and string them onto multiple TVs in the whole bar, and it’s been a huge pain and frustrating, but we’ve made it work.”

Yasaki had to alternate time between being a de facto TV serviceman and brewer. He found time to keep the taps flowing with his beers, which include a few lagers, a West Coast Pilsner and several others. But like many other small-business owners he found himself dealing with a situation that he didn’t cause but had to try to solve, at least by 4:30 p.m. Saturday.

“It was kind of a scramble. I didn’t even realize it was a problem until earlier this week,” he said.

“Obviously it’s hugely frustrating when you’re paying quite a lot of money for DirecTV, and to get a commercial license to stream Peacock is completely unreasonable and out of the question,” Yasaki said.

Masthead Brewing Co. , another downtown Cleveland brewery, found a similar solution.

“We do have DirecTV here at the brewery, but when we did our buildout in late 2016 we also installed an antenna on our roof and had coaxial cables run to each of our TVs in the taproom, so we’re able to view and broadcast over-the-air signals for the game on Saturday,” said Frank Luther of the Superior Avenue brewery.

“We’ve had to use this capability a couple of times in the past but definitely glad we have that capability in house,” he said.

Not everyone is being forced to rejigger and rewire their televisions. Doug Petkovic said Flannery’s Pub and Mabel’s BBQ downtown and his new place, Heritage Steak and Whiskey in Woodmere, all use Spectrum. The dispute does not affect that cable provider, so anyone with Spectrum can watch the game on WKYC.

“We’re going to be OK,” he said. “We in particular are covered; we don’t have that challenge.”

Petkovic said providers that require a dish can pose a problem downtown.

“If you don’t have the right signals with the big buildings downtown, you can’t use it,” he said. “A lot of places have gone to Spectrum (cable).”

Andre Scott said The Haunted House Restaurant in Cleveland Heights also uses Spectrum.

“We had Spectrum since the day we opened, moreso because we’re a themed, family restaurant not so much a ‘bar bar,’ " he said. While most of the restaurant’s TVs play scary movies – in keeping with the theme – the Browns game will be on Saturday, he said.

And if Yasaki’s MacGyver spirit isn’t enough to get you to the brewery Saturday, this might be: The food special for the game is “shotgun shells” - house-made hot sausage stuffed in manicotti, wrapped in bacon, smoked, then topped with a miso-barbecue glaze.

“Sounds amazing,” he said.
