Enter this huge building and get ready for some fun. The bar is great-a focal point to gather for food and drink and enjoy the scene. There are huge windows that open garage style when weather permits, wood logs everywhere on the walls, and 34 TVs throughout the room. Seating is throughout the dining room and there is even a patio if you want to enjoy al fresco. Belton and Lori Garner have done a great job with food and service. It is southern and so are they, showing off their charm to all. Start with fried green beans, beer battered mushrooms, catfish nuggets and yummy deviled eggs. The chicken wings are special, crispy fried and served with celery, carrots and 5 super bbq sauces. Go for the S. Carolinian, mustardy and great, the molasses, the habanera, and some plain too. Try them all. There are lovely salads then the chefs, buffalo chicken, grilled salmon, Cajun shrimp, and even a grilled chicken Caesar. Then come the mains: fried pork chop, spicy sausage (pork or beef), chicken fried steak, fried catfish, blackened catfish, pork bites, and a grilled steak sandwich. Don’t forget sides of rice, sweet potato or regular fries, squah, corn, fried okra, collard greens, and of course mac and cheese. Cornbread is a must and dig into catfish or shrimp Po’boys if you like. There’s even a burger on the menu. End with cheese cake bites, funnel cake fries, and a divine peach cobbler. The drinks complement the food perfectly. 20 craft beers, lots of fun cocktails, wine, and yes—Moonshine make for some fun drinking. Of course there is sweet tea and then sweet tea and grapefruit vodkas to add to the choices. Service is great, very casual, prices affordable, and Cleatz is just one fun place to be.
