Panini or cuban sandwiches would be good and simple to make. Maybe burrito bowls, sort of like at Chipotle.

Sports bar near Cleveland with an outdoor grill...... I'm with Jabbur. German food, brats, kraut dogs. The smell will drag them in. Plus, sausage and kraut keep a long time. No waste.

Ribs are a pain in the nether regions, but once a month wouldn't be so bad.

A local favorite out here is crazy deep fry day. Not so much for meals, but snackage and bar food. With enough batter, everything deep fries...candy bars, vegetables, meats, cake....and we all know that everything is better when it's been fried.

Chili! This is a barroom staple too.

Yes, chili! Several people have mentioned it. Could have some good hotdogs, onions, and cheese for chili dogs. Top burgers with it, nachos, etc. I had some nachos at the movie the other night that had bbq beef on it in place of chili. The beef was shredded, and the nachos were awesome!

Pasties, here are some recipes: Pasty Recipes: Traditional Yooper Food

Good solid comfort food, in hand or with gravy.

*sigh* I would be so there if we weren't living here. Chowdah's good, but we love our Lake Erie Perch! I miss OH....

I second (or third) the kielbasa and sauerkraut. With pierogis on the side...onions optional. Also stuffed cabbages...little time-intensive, but will keep warm in the pot just fine. Sandwich wise, if you make burgers you can always offer patty melts.

PrincessFiona, since pasties are Michigan food they probably won't work in OH...it's a state thing.

the sausages would likely be a great & fast meal with pierogies.
not like the perogies need be made by yins; they can be frozen ones.
i'd incorporate kraut or cabbage, braised. boiled baby taters or smashed taters if ya don't mind 2 starches in 1 diner.

Nothing to really add.

I just wanted to say that I think it would be great to to be in your position.You didd'nt mention if the menue planning was something you really enjoyed or if you really wanted to work in a resturant owned by your father or anybody else. It may not have anything to do with anything ,but if it was me I would ask your regulars what they want for dinner tommorrow.It sounds like a nice homey place ,dont force your will on the customers.Ask them what they want and do so on a regular basis.I think it would be good to have a little bit of give and take.Thats the kind of place I would like to hang out in.

Chicken pot pie or a Philly cheese steak sandwich

Take a few of the best ideas and research them, try different recipes and go from there.

The thing I like about those is that it is a ONE dish meal, that means if they want something else then that will make them purchase an appetizer (which means more $$)!

Think of something that will set you apart and become the staple place in town for that certain dish.

Good luck and let us know what you come up with or if you need any help with recipes!!

I missed this but TOTTALY agree!!!

What a great idea!

Have customers vote on a menu item, maybe even come up with a contest that customers can come up with a name for the dish.

How many people would you tell if you had a dish you named at a local spot?

Could be very good marketing!

Oh I don't know...they work in Montana just fine. There are a couple of local places that make them for sale in the grocery stores. I'm originally from Wyoming and had never heard of them...love 'em!
