Fiance and I are getting married in August in Chesterland and have been really struggling to find the perfect place to have our rehearsal dinner. We actually had fallen in love with a place in Little Italy…. but our wedding happens to fall on the weekend of the italian festival! so we had to nix that idea 🙁
We are specifically looking to host about 45 people… and are really crossing our fingers for a waterfront view or a really cute patio! Since the wedding is in chesterland, we are trying to stay on the east side or downtown…. But hearing any ideas for rehearsal dinner locations would be really helpful!

We’re getting married in Chesterland too! We’re going for a more laid back rehearsal dinner so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to help you but we’re having ours at the Winking Lizard (the one in Bedford Heights because it’s a good middle ground between east and west). We have a lot of out of towners and I think it’s a good local place to go to. Afterwards, we are going to play Whirly Ball, which is right by the WL.
We thought about the Boneyard – that one has a patio. FI really wanted to do bowling somewhere but bowling alleys have leagues on Friday nights so we weren’t allowed. Corner Alley would be fun though!
Or you could go somewhere in Chagrin Falls – lots of cute places to eat and you could go to one of the places that overlooks the falls.
Downtown Willoughby is also a cute area. The Willoughby Brewing company would be a fun place.
