The Duck Island Club is a small bar that straddles Ohio City and Tremont - just off the cut enough to remain hidden. Started as a speakeasy during Prohibition, and it still lives up to those old speakeasy days. It appears to be an unassuming house from the outside, people can walk by without even noticing it. Upon entering however they find a cozy bar full of surprises where they instantly feel at home. An air of good humor and camaraderie resonates....from the stools to the back room and patio. The bar’s large selection of spirits will make even the most finicky swiller tip his hat to the bartender and settle in.

​​​ Grumpy's has been a part of the Tremont restaurant scene since the late 90's. The first space - which will always hold a special place in our hearts - was destroyed in a fire in 2004.  After 2 years of incredibly hard work, owner Kathy Owad opened the doors again in January 2007 in the present location on W. 14th Street, tripling the dining space.​ The menu resembles the original grumpy's style with fresh, "feel good" ingredients in the Cleveland-style comfort food. Breakfast all week and brunch over the weekend can't be beat. Lunches include affordable, healthy portions that vary from comfort food to daily fresh fish specials.
