Suggestions for good restaurants in AKRON

Hi -- Am going to Akron for a wedding weekend, and am wondering if anyone can suggest some good restaurants that are inexpensive or moderate cost for meals that are not included in the wedding festivities. Having some veggie or fish options on menu would be helpful. Also possibly will need lunch on the drive between Cleveland and Akron. Thanks!

  1. The West Point Market. A pre curser to Whole foods. Many good, in house made, things to eat. Another option is The Mustard Seed Market, more towards the vegetarian side. I can't think of any real restaurants that stand out.

    1. Actually Akron and the surrounding area has quite a few nice restaurants, but its been so long I can't remember enough of them to back up that opinion. The one that comes immediately to mind is Ken Stewarts, haven't eaten there in quite a while, so you need to check if its still open and still under the same ownership. Good Luck

      1. If Treva (it's been 6-years) is still open at Market and Main, very good choice. Mustard Seed in Fairlawn is also good (but organic in nature). Ken Stewarts is upscale in design and price, but not so much in Menu. In Cayahoga Falls, there is always Maureens. Akron, and surrounding area does offer "good eats/no atmosphere" in places like the New Era.

        1. Ken Stewart's is expensive - at least by Akron standards. Treva is closed, but Bricco is open in the same space (see my reply to your bakery post). The restaurant in Cuyahoga Falls is called Moe's (the owner is Marueen) and they are at 2385 Front St, Cuyahoga Falls, 44221 - (330) 928-6600. They have a great party room upstairs that would be perfect for a group. The drive between Cleveland and Akron only takes about 30 to 45 minutes depending on traffic, so you might be able to have a late lunch once you arrive. Hope this post catches you before the wedding!
