Reservations for the regular monthly meetings of the Cleveland Civil War Roundtable can be made by email or phone. A reservation is required for yourself and for your guests in order to provide the caterer with an accurate count for the number of dinners that are needed. Meals are $35 per attendee, and reservations are required for every meeting. Meetings are typically held on the second Wednesday of each month from September through May. Meetings begin at 6:00 p.m. with drinks and socializing. A cash bar is available with wine, beer, and soft drinks. Dinner is served at 6:30 p.m. followed by the meeting and presentation from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. (It is not necessary to purchase dinner in order to attend a meeting. Anyone is welcome to attend a meeting without purchasing dinner, but anyone who wants a dinner must make a reservation so we can give a count to the caterer.)

You can make a reservation by sending an email to or by phoning 440-449-9311 and leaving your reservation on the voicemail. When making a reservation either by email or phone, be sure to indicate the meeting (i.e., date) for which you are making a reservation. In addition, please indicate your name, the number of guests you’ll be bringing with you (if any), and your guests’ names (so we can provide you and any guests with nametags.) Also, a vegetarian option is available for dinner, so if you and/or any guests prefer a vegetarian dinner, please indicate the number of vegetarian dinners that are needed. Reservations should be made no later than seven days before the meeting. Anyone who wishes to attend a meeting but has not made a reservation prior to seven days before the meeting is still welcome to attend but will not receive a dinner (and, of course, will not be charged for dinner).

Meetings are typically held on the second Wednesday of each month from September through May at:

Holiday Inn Independence

Independence, Ohio 44131

Current season’s schedule

Please note: The Roundtable must pay the Holiday Inn for every meal reserved, not just meals consumed. (Our relationship with the Holiday Inn is as a caterer, not as a restaurant.) If after making your dinner reservation you find you cannot attend that meeting, please cancel your reservation. Cancellations can be made via email ( or by phoning 440-449-9311 and must be made prior to the day of the meeting. If you make a reservation and then miss that meeting or fail to cancel your reservation prior to the day of the meeting, the Roundtable will be charged for your meal and we, unfortunately, must in turn charge you.

We also ask our members to keep in mind that, in order to attend meetings, your Roundtable membership dues should be paid for the season. You can pay your membership dues at the sign-in table prior to any meeting at the same time you pay for your meal. Guests and visitors are not required to pay membership dues.

We trust that members agree that these policies are necessary in order to allow the Roundtable to apply its entire (and limited) financial resources to implementing the educational and preservation agenda of its membership. Thank you for your understanding.
