Bedford Lizard

Lizard History

Since the first Winking Lizard Tavern opened its doors in 1983, nestled on Miles Road in Bedford Heights, this locally owned and family operated establishment has many meanings for many people.

To most, it's their favorite neighborhood joint for mouth-watering wings, delicious pizza and award-winning, house-smoked ribs. For several, it's the industry standard for the most innovative craft beer list in the country. For many, it's their "go to" sports bar to watch their favorite Cleveland sports' teams on a multitude of TVs. And for countless Ohio moms and dads, it's the only family-friendly option that satisfies both theirs and their kids' desires. No matter the reason, for both our superb guests and loyal staff, the Winking Lizard has become a home away from home, forged in family, community, and life-long memories.

At the heart of our success is a commitment to quality, consistency, and passion for all things food and beer. Our unquestionable loyalty to our guests and our staff is how we rock 'n roll. Check out a relaxing patio, join the Tour of Beers, watch your favorite sporting event, have fun with your kids, or grab a quick lunch. And don't forget to say "hello" to our lizard! Eat, relax and enjoy yourselves today…It's your home too!
