Restaurants in Canton, Oh
Heading to Canton on Wednesday to see our college student swim at NCAC's. We will be there for several days. We've been to Canton a few times before and find it hard to find good (non-national chain-type) restaurants where we can go for lunch with a few hungry college kids, something sit down, not just pizza; we have a car, and time available for a decent lunch. Have been to several of the chains + to Mulligan's most visits, and it's been okay, but we'd like to try something different, -- great sandwiches/soup/salads. Also, where to go in the evening as a couple (no students) for dinner and after, a few drinks and a casual place (we're staying at the CY Marriott). Would love to have options! Thanks.
the giesen haus is a pretty cool german place (http://www.geisenhausohio.com/) and bombay sitar is a great indian place (http://www.bombaysitar.com/). there is also a BBQ joint - locally owned - several locations - called old carolia bbq (http://oldcarolina.com/).
a possible night time/couple spot might be bender's tavern (http://www.bendersrestaurant.com/). it is a bit farther from your hotel but it is the oldest restaurant in canton. the food & drinks are good and it has some great charm - very dark, high plush booths. very cool.
